What is Fluconazole?
Fluconazole is used to treat a fungus infection called thrush. Thrush is a common yeast infection in women that shows itself through itching of the vagina and surrounding area, redness and swelling, soreness and a white non-smelling vaginal discharge.
It’s an infection that can be aggravated by sexual intercourse, although it is not a sexually transmitted disease. However, it can sometimes be passed to your partner and this is known as penile thrush (for which Fluconazole can treat).
How does Fluconazole work?
Fluconazole works to treat thrush as it is an antifungal medication. It stops the growth of the yeast known as Candida and helps to restore the natural health of your genitals.
What are the benefits of taking Fluconazole?
Thrush can be an uncomfortable and unpleasant infection that can cause pain and irritation when left untreated. Taking Fluconazole to clear it up is a quick and simple solution and allows you to return to a healthy state where sex and daily life are much better.
How do I use Fluconazole?
Fluconazole is an over-the-counter product that does not require a prescription, meaning you can buy it online easily. It’s an oral medication that should be swallowed whole, with water.
Alongside taking the Fluconazole, there are a number of lifestyle aspects to helping to clear thrush (and staying clear of it). Wear cotton underwear, avoid very hot, heavily perfumed baths and wash daily to maintain health.
The standard capsules are a 150mg dosage of Fluconazole and the packs contain only a single capsule. One dose should be enough to clear thrush within 7 days, but if it doesn’t then you should contact your doctor. You should also contact your doctor if you take above the standard dose, or if your symptoms worsen or have still not gone after 7 days.
If symptoms clear up but then return after 7 days, you can take another capsule (provided you didn’t have a negative or allergic reaction the first time). However, if you have more than two separate counts of thrush in six months then you should contact your doctor.
Side effects & precautions
Fluconazole is suitable for men and women aged between 16 and 60, who are not pregnant or breastfeeding. It is not suitable for the following people:
- Those who are allergic to any of the ingredients or any other anti-fungal medicine
- Those who are suffering from Tinea Capitis (fungal infection of the scalp)
- Those who have an intolerance to some sugars (this medicine contains lactose)

If you feel that you need treatment for thrush but any of the following applies to you, then talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Fluconazole:
- If you have had thrush more than twice in the last 6 months
- If you are under 16 years, or 61 years or older

- If you have any other long-term illness, or receive regular treatment from your doctor
- If you are unsure about the cause of your symptoms
- If you are taking any other medications
- If you are a man and either your partner does not have thrush, you have pain on passing urine, you have sores, ulcers or blisters on your penis or you have an abnormal discharge or smell
- If you are a woman and either you have lower stomach pain or pain on passing urine, you have abnormal bleeding or blood-stained discharge or you have sores or ulcers on your vagina.
All medicines affect individual users differently, so while most users notice no side effects, some may experience the following:
- Feeling sick or being sick, heartburn, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, constipation, wind, dry mouth, taste disturbances, loss of appetite
- Difficulty sleeping or difficulty getting to sleep
- Headache, feeling dizzy or unsteady on your feet, pins and needles, pain in the muscles, weakness or loss of strength, general feeling of tiredness or being unwell, shaking
- Red, raised itchy skin rash, or a rash with eruptions of pus

If you do experience one or more of these side effects then inform your doctor or pharmacist right away.
