Instructions for use
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.
- 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.
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
Diflucan 150 mg capsules are swallowed whole. The daily dose of the active substance depends on the type of fungal infection and the age of the patient.

For the prevention of recurrence of candidiasis (thrush), Diflucan is taken monthly in a dosage of 150 mg for a single dose.
For thrush (vaginal candidiasis), a single dose of 150 mg is sufficient . However, if there is a frequent recurrence, then the drug can be used in the same dosage once a month .
