What is Fluconazole for thrush?
Fluconazole 150mg is an oral tablet that can treat many types of candidiasis - including the infection around your mouth or genitals.
Fluconazole is actually administered by doctors to treat candidiasis in other parts of your body. However, if you are sure that you have oral and genital thrush, you can buy Fluconazole online and take it yourself.
Thrush, or candidiasis, is a common fungal infection that can affect various parts of your body, including your mouth and genitals. It can make the affected area feel itchy and sore, and you may notice some unusual discharge or redness. If you suspect that you are suffering from thrush and haven’t had it before, you should first see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis.
Many women experience thrush more than once in their life. If you have had this type of infection before and are sure that this is the same infection, you can buy Fluconazole from Cloud Pharmacy today.
Fluconazole for men
These types of yeast and fungal infections are much more common in women than men, but they can also easily happen to men - both around the mouth and the genital area. Like women, thrush symptoms in men are redness, itching, white discharge, and an unpleasant smell.
Fluconazole is safe for men to take, and it will deal with the infection in exactly the same way in males as females.
Fluconazole and alcohol
Alcohol is not known to make Fluconazole ineffective. However, because of the risk of liver-related side effects, you should avoid alcohol while on a course of Fluconazole. Alcohol will make your liver work harder when it is trying to get rid of your thrush infection, potentially hindering your immune system.
Fluconazole and pregnancy
Fluconazole 150mg can cause dangerous effects to the fetus; generally, it is only advised to take Fluconazole tablets if you have a dangerous infection. If you are pregnant at any stage, always speak to your doctor before taking Fluconazole.
Fluconazole and breastfeeding
Fluconazole can pass into your breast milk, and it could cause side effects in your child. If you are breastfeeding, speak to your doctor about the risks involved before you buy Fluconazole tablets.
Fluconazole for seniors
Older people are at a slightly higher risk from Flucanzole side effects because kidney function is less than in younger adults. If you are concerned about taking Fluconazole, speak to your doctor first.
How long does Fluconazole take to work?
It can take a while for Fluconazole to work. If you have genital or oral thrush, you should start to see results in 7 days or less if the infection is mild. However, if your infection is more serious, it may take up to two weeks to notice a difference.
Fluconazole over the counter
You do not need a doctor's prescription to purchase Fluconazole; buy it at our online store for next-day delivery. However, you should read through all of the side effects and potential drug reactions and make an informed choice that this medication is right for you.
For genital candidiasis, your Fluconazole dosage will probably start at 150mg dose. You may need to increase or reduce your dosage depending on your infection. Treatment may last a few weeks.
For non-genital candidiasis, your dosage could start at 50mg and go up to 400mg, depending on the severity of your condition. Again, the course may last several weeks.
How to take Fluconazole
There are many possible ways to take Fluconazole, depending on your age, the severity of your thrush, what type of thrush you have, and any other medical conditions. The most common method involves taking a tablet.
How often can you take Fluconazole?
Usually, Fluconazole is only taken once per day without food. If you only need 150mg of the medication each day, you will only need to take one Fluconazole tablet each day. However, if you have a higher prescription, you may need to take more than one Fluconazole 150mg tablet.
