Chance: An allergy develops as the result of your gene and environmental interaction. The trigger is usually unknown although viral infection is often suspected to be the facilitator.

I am taking fluconazole 400mg/day for my systemic candida. I there health dangers with the drug at that dose for 6 weeks?

I am taking fluconazole 400mg/day for my systemic candida. I there health dangers with the drug at that dose for 6 weeks?

Fluconazole use: Yes - you definitely need to be monitored if you are on long term anti fungal therapy - especially at a 'high dose' as you are on. I recommend at least weekly chemistry tests (checking the kidneys) and LIVER TESTS (checking the liver functions). Fluconazole can inflame the liver - and your doctor should be helping keep track of these things. Also, I recommend you see an ID doc if you have Candida ...Read more

Is fluconazole a dangerous medicine? I have been feeling nausea after I started it. And I have 2 times left of the treatment

Possible: Fluconazole can cause your liver to react adversely to it, however, any part of your gastrointestinal tract can do it too. Also, I see you take Lamictal and zoloft (sertraline). Interaction between these may be the culprit likewise. I would suggest you give it another trial and if the same thing happen, call your doc and get an alternative. ...Read more

Yeast Infections: There is not an over the counter pill for treatment of yeast (like the fluconazole), but there are over the counter topical treatments for yeast.

I was diagnosed with a resistant form of vaginal yeast. Terconazole and fluconazole didn't help. Is there another medicine I should ask my Dr. About?

Several choices: There are several options for vaginal yeast resistant to the azole drugs. Ask your doctor about nystatin, flucytosine, and the group of drugs called echinocandins (e.g. caspofungin, micafungin). Also, boric acid vaginal capsules often are effective (over the counter or prepared by the pharmacy -- get advice from pharmacist). Good luck! ...Read more

I am taking accutane (40mg) since 3 months and I have to take for few days zithromax and diflucan, (fluconazole) is there any interaction between these medicine?

I am taking accutane (40mg) since 3 months and I have to take for few days zithromax and diflucan, (fluconazole) is there any interaction between these medicine?

Small: Accutane does not interact with either of these medications. There is a slight risk of the Zithromax and Diflucan (fluconazole) interacting, but it is low in someone young like yourself, and if those two medications were prescribed by the same doctor, it is not worth questioning. If they were prescribed by two separate doctors, alert them to determine whether they wish to have you take both. ...Read more

Which medicine is good for nail fungal infection? I m already taking fluconazole ip 150mg one time in a week from 6 months.

Which medicine is good for nail fungal infection? I m already taking fluconazole ip 150mg one time in a week from 6 months.

Onychomycosis: Nailbed infections start in the nail matrix and need to grow out from there. This process takes longer in the toenails than the fingernails (+/- 12 mo vs 6 mo). Treatment w/ fluconazole/terbinafin usually daily; some other agents (itraconazole) 1 wk/mo (or other permutations) w/75-80% cure. Sometimes the nail has to be removed. Newer topicals may as well help alone/in combo w/oral antifungals. ...Read more
