Indications of Fluconazole
The drug fluconazole is used in the treatment and prevention of certain fungal and yeast infections. Fluconazole could also be used in the treatment and prevention of other conditions as prescribed by your physician.
Fluconazole is considered an azole antifungal. This drug eradicates sensitive fungi through interference in the formation of fungal cell membrane.
When Not To Use Fluconazole
Fluconazole should not be taken if: the patient is allergic to any substance found in fluconazole or if the patient is taking an aldosterone blocker such as astemizole.
Administration of Fluconazole
Take Fluconazole as prescribed by your physician. Verify with the sticker on the medicine to get the right drug dosage instructions. Fluconazole can be taken with or without food. Fluconazole must be taken at least 2 hours prior to taking proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole.
Take Fluconazole for the full course of treatment to treat the infection completely. Continue taking the drug even if you are feeling better after a few days. Never miss any dose. This drug would also work more efficiently if it is consumed at the same time everyday.
In the case of a missed dose, it could be taken as soon as remembered. However, if it is already the time for the next dose, the skipped dose can be overlooked altogether. Never combine two doses at any time.
