Pharmacological properties

Diflucan Diflucan 150 mg belongs to the triazole antifungal agents of the new class and is considered a powerful way to combat fungi of various nature. The drug Diflucan contains the active ingredient fluconazole, which has an antibiotic effect. By suppressing the vital processes of fungal microorganisms, fluconazole causes their inevitable death. Moreover, the drug in no way affects the hormones of a woman. The effectiveness of fluconazole was tested on various models of fungal diseases. The drug showed particular activity in opportunistic mycoses, including those caused by Candida spp.

Indications

  • Cryptococcosis (cryptococcal meningitis, infections of the lungs, skin and others), may be treated in patients with AIDS.
  • Generalized candidiasis (infections of the peritoneum, eyes, urinary and respiratory tract infections, endocardium), may be treated in patients with malignant tumors.
  • Candidiasis of the mucous membranes (oral cavity - more about the treatment , pharynx, esophagus , candiduria, mucocutaneous, chronic oral atrophic).
  • Genital candidiasis (vaginal, acute or recurrent).
  • Mycoses of the skin (body, feet, groin, onychomycosis, pityriasis versicolor).
  • Other types of mycoses (coccidioidomycosis, sporotrichosis, histoplasmosis, paracoccidiomycosis and others).

In addition, Diflucan 150 mg is prescribed to prevent fungal infections in people undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy prescribed to fight malignant tumors, if they have a predisposition to their development.

Contraindications

The main contraindications are simultaneous use with such substances as cisapride, terfenadine, astemizole. In addition, the reception is contraindicated for persons with hypersensitivity to fluconazole and azole substances similar in chemical structure.

Diflucan 150 mg is contraindicated during pregnancy unless the fetus is threatened with a fungal infection, and the benefits of the drug will be higher than the expected risk. During breastfeeding, it is also worth refusing to take the drug, since fluconazole passes into the milk in the same concentration as in the blood of the nursing mother.

In rare cases, you should refrain from taking the drug for:

  • liver disease,
  • rash after starting
  • the appearance of bullous lesions and erythema (multiforme).

Dosing and Administration

For the prevention of recurrence of candidiasis (thrush), Diflucan is taken monthly in a dosage of 150 mg for a single dose.

Reviews

I have a relapse of thrush. The first time was treated with candles from another manufacturer, but the effect of them had to wait a very long time. I needed a faster-acting drug, and here my friends were talking about Diflucan. On their advice and bought it. The effect after it was instant. Now only buy it and I will. Anna, Moscow

Quickly copes with thrush, literally two pills were enough to stop the burning and strong discharge. After the vigilant Livarola in the candles, the problem of thrush returned all the time, and after Diflucan okay, almost half a year! The only negative - a couple of days hurt the stomach after the pills, but you can suffer. Svetlana Yakina, Novosibirsk

As for me, this is one of the most effective means for treating thrush in women. Every time I get thrush, I drink Diflucan in combination with local drugs to treat this unpleasant disease. There were no side effects, but the result was fast and long-lasting. Angelina, Dnepropetrovsk

    Hello! The doctor prescribed doxycycline for a course of 14 days. In the middle of the second week, the classic symptoms of candidiasis appeared - itching and burning in the urethra, small white lumps on the head of the penis, and an unpleasant smell. The doctor advised to use one of the preparations of ointments to choose from (I chose Candida). When I was already treating candidiasis, I was helped by a single dose of Diflucan. I think to take it once and this time, in connection with which the question is: when is it better to take it? After completing the course of doxycycline or in parallel with it? I have 4 days left until the end of the course of doxycycline. Thank you in advance.
