Product Overview

Fluconaz is a medication containing the active ingredient Fluconazole. It belongs to the class of antifungal drugs known as triazoles. Fluconaz is primarily used to treat fungal infections caused by Candida species, including vaginal yeast infections, oral thrush, esophageal candidiasis, and systemic candidiasis. It works by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, a key component of fungal cell membranes, thereby disrupting fungal cell structure and function.

Uses

Fluconaz is indicated for the treatment of various fungal infections, including vaginal yeast infections (vulvovaginal candidiasis), oral thrush (oropharyngeal candidiasis), esophageal candidiasis, and systemic candidiasis. It is also used for the prevention of fungal infections in individuals with compromised immune systems, such as those undergoing chemotherapy or organ transplantation.

How to Use

Fluconaz is typically taken orally once daily with or without food, as directed by your healthcare provider. For vaginal yeast infections, Fluconaz is available as a single-dose oral tablet. It is important to complete the full course of treatment, even if symptoms improve before the medication is finished. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully and do not exceed the prescribed dosage.

How it Works

Fluconaz works by inhibiting the enzyme lanosterol 14-alpha-demethylase, which is essential for the synthesis of ergosterol, a key component of fungal cell membranes. Without ergosterol, the integrity and permeability of the fungal cell membrane are compromised, leading to cell death. This mechanism of action makes it effective against a wide range of fungal infections caused by Candida species.

Dosage and Administration

The dosage of Fluconaz varies depending on the type and severity of the fungal infection being treated. For vaginal yeast infections, a single 150 mg oral tablet is typically taken. For other types of candidiasis, the dosage may range from 100 to 400 mg per day, taken orally for several weeks. Your doctor will determine the appropriate dosage based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

Common Side Effects

Common side effects of Fluconaz may include headache, nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and rash. These side effects are usually mild and temporary, resolving on their own without medical intervention. Serious side effects such as liver toxicity and allergic reactions are rare but may occur, particularly with prolonged use or high doses of it.

Warnings

Fluconaz may interact with certain medications, including blood thinners, anticonvulsants, and antidiabetic drugs. Inform your doctor about all medications you are currently taking, including prescription, over-the-counter, and herbal supplements. Do not take it if you are allergic to fluconazole or other azole antifungal drugs. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using it.
