What is Diflucan?

Clinically proven to cure a number of yeast infections, Diflucan (fluconazole) works effectively to tackle the fungi that cause the infection. Most patients find their symptoms reducing, or even clearing completely, within 24 hours of taking the first pill. It is known to treat a whole host of fungal and yeast infections, the most usual being:

  • Female and male thrush (candidiasis)
  • Vagina and vulva yeast infections

Fluconazole (Diflucan) is also available for use to prevent fungal infections in those with weakened immune systems caused by cancer treatment. Sometimes referred to as an antibiotics, technically it is an antifungal tablet.

What are the additional benefits of Diflucan?

There are many advantages to using Diflucan over other thrush treatments, other than its ability to cure a yeast infection quickly. There are many over-the-counter methods available, especially to cure a bout of thrush, however prescription medications are often far more effective much quicker. Other benefits include the following:

  • Low maintenance - Diflucan comes in a dosage that means it is just one tablet (you can order up to three tablets online, which will be recommended by the doctor if needed). This means you do not have to worry about remembering to take your dose over several days.
  • Quick - As mentioned, one fluconazole pill can reduce symptoms within 24 hours, and continues to work to cure the infection post-treatment.
  • Lower risk - As you only take it once, the risk of side effects is lower than with other medications.
  • Multi-functional - Primarily used to treat thrush, Diflucan is also effective against many yeast infections listed above. It can also be used by men and women, whilst most treatments are gender specific.
  • Easy to take - As it is comes in tablet form, this medication is very easy to take, especially in comparison to pessaries.
  • Mess-free - Whist creams and ointments can soothe itching, and most can be used in conjunction with Diflucan, fluconazole tablets are simple and clean to take.
  • Discreet - Creams can require preparation, including a free sink to wash your hands afterwards. Doing this at work can be more taxing than taking a pill.

How do I take Diflucan?

Taking Diflucan is so easy:

  • One 150mg dosage tablet taken with or without food and at any time of day.
  • Symptoms should begin to disappear after about 1-4 days after taking the treatment.

If you do not notice any change, you should contact your doctor for further advice. You can order up to 3 tablets, however, your doctor will advise this based on your symptoms; you should not increase your dosage unless you have been specifically advised to do so by a medical professional.

If you're looking to buy Diflucan here, one of our doctors will be able to assess if your condition require a longer treatment or not.

How does Diflucan work?

The active ingredient fluconazole works to cure the infection by killing the fungi that causes it. It achieves this by hindering the ability of the fungi to produce ergosterol, which is a vital part of the cell membranes. Without ergosterol being produced, holes appear in the cell membrane. Without this protection, the fungi cells become vulnerable and die off, ending the infection. Fluconazole is so effective that it continues to work beyond the 1-3 days after taking each capsule.

Those who decide to buy Diflucan instead of over-the-counter yeast infection treatments will find it's much more effective within a quicker time frame as it is clinically proven medication. For most users, the discomfort and itchiness will subside within one day, whilst others find it may take several days. Because Diflucan tablets are so effective so fast, if you haven't notice a reduction in the discomfort after several days, you can call your doctor for a review.

What dosages are available for Diflucan?

The only dosage of fluconazole available online at HealthExpress is 150mg.

This has been proven in clinical trials to be the most effective dosage for curing yeast infections, such as thrush, and is usually the recommended dose. You can order one, two or three tablets at HealthExpress based on the severity of the infection.

Diflucan is also available in 100mg up to 400mg depending on your condition and the severity of the symptoms. When completing an online consultation, our doctors will recommend you the ideal dosage.

What are the potential side effects of Diflucan?

Diflucan side effects are very unlikely as it is just one dose that needs to be taken, and even those classed as "common" only occur in a small percentage of patients. If you do experience any, then the chances are these will be temporary and subside after the medication is out of your system. For the 150mg dosage of fluconazole, the most common side effect includes headaches, nausea, itching, rash and abdominal pain.

Infrequent and rare side effects include diarrhoea and dizziness. If you have any side effects that persist, don't hesitate to contact your GP.

What precautions should I take when using Diflucan?

Precautions are few and far between as, just like the side effects, it is just one dosage and therefore, you aren't using for a prolonged amount of time. Some precautions to take into account when taking fluconazole capsules include allergic reactions (to fluconazole, or any other antifungal medications) or if you have a history of liver and/or kidney disease.

Diflucan can be used by a pregnant woman, and should not harm the unborn baby. It is advised though, that a maximum of one dose is used during the pregnancy, as long term use of fluconazole and affect the unborn baby's growth and cause defects.

There have been noted interactions between fluconazole and certain medication such as clotrimazole, cisapride, zidovudine, losartan, azithromycin, cyclosporine and rifampin

Ensure you inform the doctor if you are using any of the following medication, also ensure you check the patient information leaflet for any other interactions.

As the medication can also pass on to the breast milk, ensure that you do not use it whilst breastfeeding and inform your doctor as to the best alternative to treat any yeast infection you may have.

How can I buy Diflucan online safely?

You can easily order Diflucan safely online to treat yeast infections. Whilst there are over-the-counter methods available, the choice can be overwhelming and efficiency lower, so heading straight towards proven prescription medication is preferred. At HealthExpress, we offer Diflucan in one 150mg dosage. When completing a free consultation, if your symptoms are particularly severe, you may be offered up to three tablets, or be advised to seek Diflucan in a higher dosage from your GP. Our medication also comes with the patient leaflet.
