3 doctors agree

In brief: Diflucan (fluconazole)?

100 mg daily will be adequate.
Due to partial renal excretion, which is lacking in dialysis patients, the dose may need to be decreased if used more than 10 days. For instance HIV patients may need long term treatment then interrupted treatment guided by response of candidiasis may be the way to go.
