About 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.

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.

The information provided in the summary table is for reference only. It is important to consult a qualified healthcare professional before starting any thrush treatment, including Fluconazole.

How effective is Fluconazole?

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

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 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 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 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.

Are there any side effects to consider

 Use of Fluconazole may cause side effects which are mild and disappear within a few days. Common side effects and how to overcome them include:

  • Headaches: you should drink plenty of water to ensure you are hydrated.
  • Stomach pain: you should rest well and eat simple well balanced meals
  • Diarrhoea: you should drink plenty of liquids to prevent dehydration.
  • Nausea: you should avoid eating lots of rich spicy meals and stick to healthy meals that contain lots of fruits and vegetables.
  • Rash: speak to a pharmacist who may advise you to take an antihistamine

If any of these side effects worsen, then you should stop using Fluconazole Tablets immediately and seek medical advice as soon as possible.

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.

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.

Can I stop taking Fluconazole Tablets if I feel better?

You should always complete your course of Fluconazole Tablets, even if you feel better.

What if I forget to take my dose of Fluconazole Tablets?

If you forget to take your dose of Fluconazole Tablets, you should take them as soon as you remember unless it is almost time for your next dose. If it is almost time for your next dose then you should skip the dose you just missed. You should never take 2 doses at once, even if you are making up for a missed dose.
