Diflucan (fluconazole*) is an antifungal medication prescribed for various fungal and yeast infections, the most common being:
It is available from HealthExpress for the above conditions.
Alternatively, Diflucan may be used to treat skin, brain, blood and urinary tract infections. If you need it for these uses, you should contact your regular doctor.
Diflucan is also a preventative medication for those with weakened immune systems, for example, individuals undergoing cancer treatment.
*Fluconazole is the generic version of Diflucan. A generic is an unbranded medication that shares the same ingredients and properties but is made by a different manufacturer.
The active ingredient in Diflucan, fluconazole, aids your immune system in killing fungal cells. It achieves this by preventing fungal cells from converting a substance called lanosterol into another called ergosterol, which is a vital part of the cell membranes. With incomplete membranes, the contents of cells begin to leak out, killing them.
It is important to remember that everybody reacts differently to medications. However, you should start to notice the effects of Diflucan soon after taking it. The symptoms of thrush should gradually disappear over a couple of days. Do not be alarmed if it takes up to seven days for symptoms to completely go.
