Fluconazole 150mg capsule

The common infection known as thrush is caused by an overgrowth of Candida Albicans, a substance similar to yeast which is found in the vagina. It can develop when the conditions within the vagina alter in some way; for example during pregnancy, after taking antibiotics or when suffering from diabetes. It can also develop if you over-wash the area with soap. Although not a sexually transmitted infection, thrush can also be spread from unprotected sex. If left untreated, thrush is more likely to keep returning so it is wise to take medication such fluconazole to help your body recover.

How effective is fluconazole?

Fluconazole was found to be exceptionally effective at treating thrush. 97% of study patients were cured and/or improved after 5 days or within 16, and the Candida overgrowth was also removed in 93% of the study group.

Why choose fluconazole?

Taken as a single dose tablet, fluconazole is a quick and easy way to treat your thrush without the need for messy pessaries and creams. It works well at removing the infection and is found in studies to be well tolerated in patients, resulting in mild or no side effects. As such, it has become the most commonly prescribed medication for thrush worldwide after its 20+ years on the market.

What is contained in fluconazole?

The active ingredient is fluconazole.

The inactive ingredients include:

  • microcrystalline cellulose
  • dibasic calcium phosphate anhydrous
  • povidone, croscarmellosesodium
  • FD&C Red No. 40 aluminium lake dye
  • magnesium stearate.
How should I take fluconazole?

You should always take your medication as directed by your doctor or by following the leaflet inside the pack. You will be prescribed the appropriate strength of fluconazole which you can then have at any time of the day. You do not need to eat before taking it but do swallow it with water.

How does fluconazole work?

The purpose of fluconazole is to stop the fungi from being able to replicate and reproduce. It does this by blocking its ability to produce a substance it requires to survive called ergosterol. Fluconazole causes holes to appear in the fungi’s cell membrane causing it to leak and eventually destroy the cells. In turn the infection is destroyed and the body’s own immunity can begin to clear the rest of the infection.

How long can I take fluconazole for?

For thrush, fluconazole is taken as a single dose tablet though if your infection is very severe you may potentially require a follow-up dose. If your initial dose does not completely clear up your infection then you can book an appointment with your Click Pharmacy doctor any time.

Can I take fluconazole whilst breastfeeding?

It has been found in studies that taking fluconazole whilst breastfeeding is safe as the amount secreted into the breastmilk is lower than the dosage normally given to babies. In one study, only 7 of the 96 women taking part experienced mild side effects in their breastfed babies which included red cheeks and an upset stomach.

Fluconazole is often prescribed to breastfeeding mothers for breast candidiasis though you can discuss any concerns or questions you may have about this with your doctor before beginning treatment.

What are the side effects of fluconazole?

Medications can affect the body in different ways and though one person may experience one or more side effects from using a treatment, someone else may have no issues at all. Most of the side effects are experienced mildly and should clear up on their own within a couple of days. If you are still suffering from side effects after a week, book an appointment with your Click Pharmacy doctor or GP.

The most common, mild side effects include:

  • nausea and vomiting
  • diarrhoea
  • headaches
  • stomach pain

If you have lowered or suppressed immunity then you may be inclined to develop a severe rash after taking fluconazole. Seek medical help or contact your doctor right away if this occurs.

Other Warnings to consider

On rare occasions, some people may develop serious side effects to medication. If you experience any of the following, or any other major issues, seek help right away:

  • jaundice
  • a severe rash, dizziness or stomach pain
  • an abnormal heartbeat
  • fainting
  • allergic reactions which present as swelling of the face or throat, breathing difficulties or a fever which will not go down.

Some medications, including herbal supplements and vitamins, can interact with fluconazole. Ensure you discuss any other drugs you take before beginning this treatment to make sure that one medicine will not interfere with the other causing it to be less effective or dangerous. Drugs such as warfarin, medications for diabetes as well as phenytoin and theophylline amongst others can all cause dangerous side effects when mixed with fluconazole
