If you're on other meds you should check with a doc too about drug interactions with fluconazole. ...Read more

Return to the doctor or clinic who prescribed treatment. If in doubt about doctor's expertise, you won't go wrong with one of your country's excellent NHS genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinics. Or a urologist. Good luck! ...Read more
