What is Fluconazole?

Fluconazole is an effective treatment designed to deal with a number of fungal infections. It can be taken differently depending on the type of infection you have. In one study comparing it with other treatment methods, infections treated with fluconazole were found to have a ‘lower recurrence rate’ .

Just like the parts of our body where we commonly find them, fungal infections come in all shapes and sizes. They’re usually nothing to worry about and can be treated simply and easily.

There are many different ways of contracting a fungal infection. Sometimes they can be caused by coming into contact with a fungus, but not always. In some situations, conditions inside the body or on the surface of the skin can provide optimal conditions for some fungi that already ‘lives’ on us to develop and thrive.

Fungal infections like vaginal thrush are nothing to do with hygiene; they’re actually the result of too much yeast being present in the vagina. Some people feel irritated and uncomfortable when experiencing infections like thrush, so they think they need to shower or bathe more often. But it’s important not to wash excessively with perfumed soaps as that might further upset the PH balance of your skin, and make the infection worse. If you think you have a fungal infection, it’s best to seek treatment for it.

How does Fluconazole work?

There are a whole host of fungi that our bodies come into contact with on a daily basis. Some might cause ringworm, some might cause athlete’s foot, and some live harmlessly on our skin for years. It’s when conditions are right for fungus to develop that an infection occurs.

Fluconazole works by stopping a problem fungus from producing a substance called ergosterol. This is the glue that holds the fungi cells together.

Without this glue, the fungus can’t sustain itself and the infection clears up.

Interestingly, there have been studies looking at combining Fluconazole with anti-cancer drugs to enhance the effect of it . (But this has been more to investigate the effects of the anit-cancer drug than Fluconazole.)

What doses of Fluconazole are there?

The dosage of fluconazole you take depends on what type of fungus is causing the problem. For vaginal thrush, the recommended dose is 150mg. This is normally taken as one capsule, once a day for 7-14 days. This might be adjusted by your clinician if you have a particularly severe infection, or a persistent infection that hasn’t cleared up.

If you take Fluconazole but still have symptoms after finishing your course, you should ask your clinician for further advice.

How to take Fluconazole

Always take Fluconazole as your clinician has told you to.

  • Fluconazole comes as a capsule which you should swallow whole with water.
  • Your dose will vary depending upon the nature of your infection. For vaginal thrush, this is normally 150mg, taken once a day for 7-14 days.
  • If you still have symptoms after finishing the course, let your clinician know.

How long does it take Fluconazole to work?

The manufacturer leaflet says that you should go back to your clinician for help if you’ve been using Fluconazole for seven days and not seen an improvement . According to the summary of product characteristics, when you take Fluconazole it reaches ‘steady state’ in the body by day 4 or 5 . So while it only takes a few hours to be absorbed into your bloodstream, it’ll be working at close to optimum within a week.

What should I do if I make a mistake when taking Fluconazole?

If you miss a dose, it’s important to take that capsule as soon as you remember. If it’s nearly time for your next dose though, you should just skip the missed dose, but take your next capsule as normal. While it’s unlikely to cause you any harm, if you do accidentally take a double dose of Fluconazole, this might make you feel unwell. If this happens, you should seek medical assistance immediately.

FAQ: Fluconazole

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

How is Fluconazole different to other treatments for thrush?

Answer:
There are many kinds of fungal infection, so it follows that there are different medicines to treat those various infections.

Many fungal infections are caused by the candida fungus; candida is responsible for athlete’s foot, vaginal yeast infections, nail fungus, jock itch, nappy (diaper) rash, and oral thrush. Fluconazole is the active ingredient in many antifungal medications, which come as tablets or topical treatments such as sprays and creams. Fluconazole, though, comes in a capsule which you should swallow with water.

If you’re unsure about the best choice of treatment for you, our clinicians can help you find the right medication.

Is Fluconazole similar to any other treatments?

Answer:
Diflucan is the branded version of Fluconazole; this treatment is basically the same as Fluconazole, with the same active ingredient. The main differences are the price, and the appearance of the capsules and the packaging, which may differ between the branded and the generic versions. Fluconazole, as the generic treatment, is a bit cheaper.

Which dose of Fluconazole should I use?

Answer:
It depends on the nature of the fungal infection you’ve got. Prescriptions of 50mg will typically be given to you if you’re suffering from oral thrush. For vaginal thrush, prescriptions will usually be given for 150mg. Other, more severe infections will be dealt with using varying lengths of treatment but you’ll usually be prescribed with 200mg of Fluconazole.

Do I need a prescription for Fluconazole?

Answer:
Fluconazole is a bit stronger than other fungal treatments you can get over the counter, so the capsules should be prescribed to you by a clinician or medical professional. This protects you and ensures you’re using the right treatment.

Why should I buy Fluconazole online with Treated?
