What Is The Interaction Of Alcohol And Fluconazole
I have been prescribed 150mg single dose of Fluconazole. I take Lexapro & Mirapex. Are there interactions? Can I consume alcohol with Fluconazole?
It is possible.: If you have not taken Fluconazole before, you may have side-effects from the medication itself, though rare that might be difficult to sort out from side-effects of the other medications, such as dizziness, general feeling of tiredness or weakness, nausea , loss of appetite.

These will worsen with alcohol. Since Diflucan (fluconazole) stays in the system for about a week, the best option is to avoid alcohol for a week after taking Diflucan (fluconazole).

No delay in either: Presumably you have a vaginal yeast infection. Best to avoid sex until your symptoms have cleared up, probably a few days. Before then might be uncomfortable, but not dangerous; up to you and partner. There is no problem from the fluconazole, either with sex or alcohol. Contrary to popular belief, alcohol in moderation is OK during almost all antibiotics or infections. Just don't overdo it. ...Read more
Avoid carbs: Assuming you are taking Diflucan (fluconazole) for a yeast infection, it would be best to avoid foods and drinks that turn to sugar in your body, including alcohol free beer. There seems to be a misconception that beer without alcohol is low carb but in fact one bottle can contain 13-15grams of carbs.
