FLUCONAZOLE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Esophageal Candidiasis: “I was so scared of this one dose pill because of some of these reviews that I almost talked myself out of taking it despite desperately needing it. So glad I took it! I ended up cutting it in half, took one around 8:30am experienced some nausea which could have turned to vomiting if I had anything in my stomach. Took the next at Noon, experienced some random mild belly cramping – nothing unbearable. It’s now almost 6Pm and I’ve got a very mild headache with some random light itching. Absolutely nothing major, and best news ever is I finally got to eat without choking!! I’ll update if anything significant happens, otherwise… Just take the pill. You’ve got it because you NEED it. I’ve also been taking Nystatin 4x daily with it and am normally very anti-medication/Dr Phobic/side effect sensitive. Don’t let reviews upset you. Some of them sound exaggerated anyway.”

Diflucan (fluconazole) for Vaginal Yeast Infection: “I took diflucan for a yeast infection on a Friday around 8 PM, at about 10 PM my lips started to tingle. I went to bed and woke up at 2 am to find my lips severely swollen with a rash around them. Today is Monday and my lips are burning, dry, and still swollen. I am now getting sores inside of my mouth from the diflucan. My yeast infection has cleared up, but the pain I am feeling now is horrific. I will NEVER take this pill again.”

For Vaginal Yeast Infection: “I’m sensitive to medication side effects so I took after eating. I was given 2 doses of 150mg, one on first day then again 3 days later, for yeast infection after antibiotics for kidney infection. Day 1, drowsy, dull headache, severe bloat/upset stomach, feeling diarrhea-ish, worst smelling gas of my life (yay). Infection symptoms dissipated within 1/2 day, but returned on and off. Today, 7 days later, I took a 1/2 dose. Bad gas, some bloating and upset tummy but not as severe. Symptoms gone within a few hours of taking it. I’ll finish the other half in another day. Maybe it’s better to take it at night. Seems somewhat effective so far.”

For Vaginal Yeast Infection: “Took Diflucan when I’m pregnant 26 weeks and had YI since I’m in my 13th week of pregnancy. After taking 1 tab, the next day all the discharge came out and it feels so relieved (I think around 80% improved). No itchy inside, no burning sensation outside, I can wear panty with comfort. Yet after 6 days, the symptom seems to come back (starts to feel itchy from inside). Not really sure I should repeat the dosage or not. Still waiting for my obgyn’s reply.”

For Vaginal Yeast Infection: “I’d been battling a yeast infection (2nd one I’ve ever had) for almost 2 weeks after starting BC for the first time and very unaware this was a side effect. I stopped the BC and the doctor prescribed me a gel to use which slightly alleviated the symptoms but they’d return every other day. I was also taking Azo (which previously worked for me within 2 days-but this was a much stronger infection) , Cystex, Rephresh probiotic (which I normally take) and plenty of water and nothing. I finally budged and went to urgent care. This made me feel 100% better within 24hrs, please just ask for this instead OTC solutions.”
