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.

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.
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.
