How Diflucan works

Fluconazole has highly effective antifungal properties allowing it to treat vaginal thrush by killing the actual Candida fungus responsible for the symptoms. It's able to do this by preventing the fungus from producing ergosterol, which is vital in the formation of fungal cell walls. If a fungus can't multiply or maintain its cell walls it dies, resulting in the infection clearing up within a few hours.

Who Diflucan is for

Diflucan is mostly recommended as a vaginal thrush treatment for women over the age of 18. However, there may be some instances where the use of it is not advisable. This is why people with liver disorders, heart disease or decreased function of the liver may not be recommended this medicine. People with low blood levels of magnesium, calcium or potassium, pregnant or breastfeeding women or those with allergies to antifungal treatments are also at an increased risk of adverse side effects.

How to take Diflucan

Diflucan comes in a 150mg tablet that is taken orally, with or without food. It can be taken at any point during the day and many women start to notice a change in their condition within 24 hours of taking this dose. Your doctor may recommend a cream treatment such as Gyno-Daktarin as well, but this is mostly in instances where infections have become recurrent or are particularly severe. If you don't notice any change in your condition, you should speak to your doctor before considering an increase to your dosage.

Diflucan side effects

The side effects of this treatment are rarely serious, particularly since the treatment is so short. The most common side effects may include nausea, an upset stomach, headaches, an unpleasant taste in your mouth or dizziness, although these aren't likely to last for very long. However, if they don't go away, become worse or you start noticing the symptoms of an allergic reaction, which may include swelling of the face, tongue or mouth, you should seek emergency medical help.

Buying your treatment online

Diflucan is available to order online at 121doc with the help of our online consultation service. Just ensure that you complete the consultation that forms part of the ordering process. This is free and will allow our doctors to ensure that you are prescribed this medication only if it's safe for you to use. If a prescription is approved, this will be passed to our pharmacy from where your order will be shipped for delivery right to your door. All orders are shipped free of charge and there is also no charge for our online consultation service, meaning that if your order is not approved, you will not be charged.
