Instructions for use
A distinctive feature of the flucostat is the precise direction of its action. The drug "hits" only on fungal cells, keeping "intact" the bacteria that are needed to maintain a healthy microflora of the gastrointestinal tract or vagina. So in the fight against a milkmaid, a better "assistant" than a flucostat can not be found. After all, it perfectly helps in suppressing the activity of fungi of the genus Candida.
Flucostat releases as capsules and a solution that is used when the drug has to be injected through a syringe. In both cases, the active substance is fluconazole, but its concentration varies. Tablets are available in three types: fluconazole 50, 100 or 150 mg. On the shelves of pharmacies you can find bottles with a solution for injections of 0.2 percent for 50 and 100 mL. Fluconazole in them for 200 mg.
According to specialists, Flucostat capsules are very well absorbed. Their bioavailability is ninety percent, therefore it is not recommended to exceed the dosage. Most often, one pill per day is enough, and at an early stage there will be enough and one reception. It does not matter whether you drink a pill with food or not. It is absorbed equally well. Their body fluconazole is excreted through the kidneys. Almost 80 percent goes with urine.
Flukstat will become a lifebuoy for those who have been diagnosed with cryptococcosis (including cryptococcal meningitis, as well as its analogs). Using Flucostat, generalized candidiasis can be cured.
It will help even those who "picked up" candidemia, disseminated candidiasis or some other form of invasive candidiasis infections. Simply put, it will be effective in combating infections of the peritoneum, endocardium, as well as the eyes, respiratory and urinary tract.
Also Flukostat "will come to the rescue" for those who have encountered candidiasis of the mucous membranes, esophagus, as well as non-invasive bronchopulmonary candidiasis, candiduria and candidiasis of the skin.
It can also be used to prevent fungal infections in patients with malignant neoplasms, a predisposition to such infections sometimes appears as a side effect of chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
However, most often the drug is used to combat " thrush " (or genital candidiasis, as it is called specialists). With its help, you can treat vaginal candidiasis, carry out prevention and even treat candida balanitis , the so-called " male thrush ." In addition, Flukostat is able to quickly and efficiently rid the skin of mycoses, with its help, otaroid lichen and onychomycosis, as well as deep endemic mycoses, including coccidiomycosis, paracoccidiomycosis, sporotrichosis and histoplasmosis in patients with normal immunity.
If the immunity is weakened
Most often, the drug can be taken as people with normal immunity, and those who suffer from immunosuppression (for example, those who survived organ transplantation or are sick with AIDS). By the way, in the second case it is still used as a means of maintenance therapy for the prevention of cryptococcal infection.
It is noteworthy that treatment can be performed in patients with malignant neoplasms, in intensive care units, in patients undergoing cytostatic or immunosuppressive therapy, and in the presence of other factors predisposing to the development of candidiasis.
Flukstat "conflicts" with some drugs. It should not be "interfered" with terfenadine or astemizole, as well as other drugs that extend the QT interval.
Also, a contraindication may be increased sensitivity to Flukostat components or a similar structure of azole compounds. Do not give it to children who are under three years old, as well as pregnant and lactating mothers . Those who are preparing to learn the joys of motherhood, prescribe flucostat only when fungal infections threaten their life or the life of their future child.
It is worth to be treated cautiously, if in the history of the disease there are records of liver or kidney failure. Doctors try not to prescribe it to alcoholics and those who suffer from organic heart diseases, electrolyte balance disorders. In addition, do not take Flukostat with drugs that cause arrhythmia.
Dosage for adults
People who have experienced cryptococcal infections should take 400 mg on the first day, then 200-400 mg will suffice. You need to do this once a day for about seven weeks.
For the prevention of cryptococcal meningitis in AIDS patients, it is recommended to take 200 mg per day. And with candidemia, disseminated candidiasis, and other similar infections, on the first day the dose is 400 mg, then it should be cut in half.
When orofaringenal candidiasis is prescribed 50-100 mg once a day. Take the drug is recommended for at least a week. In the case when a person suffers also from suppressed immunity - treatment should be longer.
If problems arise due to wearing dentures, then 50 mg once a day is enough. However, Flukostat should be taken within two weeks. The same or even longer course of the drug is prescribed for candidal infections of the mucous membranes. To get rid of this ailment, Flukostat should be taken at a dosage of 50-100 mg, every day from two weeks to a month.
To prevent the recurrence of oropharyngeal candidiasis in patients with AIDS after completion of the full course of primary therapy, 150 mg once a week can be prescribed.
With vaginal candidiasis, the drug is taken in a dose of 150 mg. As a rule, one reception is enough. In the same way, they struggle with the frequency of relapses. To reduce it, the drug is used once a month.
The same dosage is prescribed for skin infections. To get rid of the itch and forget about the fungus, 150 mg of Flucostat will be enough once a week or 50 mg once a day for two to four weeks. In some cases, treatment is delayed by eight weeks.
Treat onychomycosis should be until the new nail grows. It will be enough to take 150 mg of the drug once a week. And with deep endemic mycoses, the dosage is increased to 200-400 mg per day. The duration of treatment in this case is determined individually.
Treatment of children
In candidiasis of the mucous membranes, the dose is 3 mg per kilogram of weight, on the first day a shock dose of 6 mg / kg can be prescribed. Dosage is increased when it comes to the treatment of generalized candidiasis and cryptococcal infection. Therapy will be effective if every day give the child 6-12 mg / kg.
For the prevention of fungal infections, a daily dosage of 3 to 12 mg / kg will suffice. In this case, it should be borne in mind that for those who have just been born, the interval between injections is 72 hours, and when the child grows up (at the age of two to four weeks) the same dose is administered with a smaller interval. Fluxostat is given once every two days.
In children who at tender age have learned what are the problems of the kidneys, the dose should be reduced (in the same proportion as in adults). To calculate it, you need to understand how pronounced renal failure is. This can only be done by a practitioner.

My doctor prescribed one time Flukostat. I was still surprised that there was only one capsule. But the next day after the reception really passed the symptoms. A year later thrush returned, but only because of taking a serious course of antibiotics, and I have already drunk Flukostat without a doctor's prescription. And again the result did not keep itself waiting! So it's a very good tool!
I did not expect flucostat to help so quickly. It's really enough to take one capsule to get the effect. Previously, I had to suffer with candles and ointments, and not a single day.
Yes, the remedy is really very effective. I also heard from friends that it helps quickly, and when I was diagnosed with thrush, the doctor wrote Flukostat for my joy, so I took it for a while and in 2 days all the signs of the thrush disappeared.
