I took diflucan (fluconazole) for 14 days..thrush from antibiotics. How long does it stay in your system after last dosage?

Recently had thrush from antibiotics. Took two diflucan and still taking nystatin. Thrush has somewhat cleared but i'm almost finished the nystatin. How long should I wait to see if I need another doctors visit. Should I ask them to call in more diflucan
