What Is Fluconazole 50mg & 150mg Used For?

Fluconazole is an antifungal treatment used to treat various fungal infections, including thrush (candidiasis), ringworm, jock itch and athlete's foot.

Fluconazole kills the candida fungi directly. Fluconazole 150mg tablets are also available as the brand Diflucan.

Candida is the most prevalent cause of thrush in men and women and can cause infections in the mouth, genitals and bloodstream.

Symptoms of thrush include:

  • A white discharge that resembles cottage cheese
  • Itching of the vulva (the outside of the vagina)
  • Penile or vaginal irritation, soreness and redness
  • Pain or discomfort during sex or while urinating

More information on the symptoms of thrush can be found on the NHS website.

While thrush is not typically contagious, it's best to treat thrush as soon as possible to reduce the severity of symptoms.

If you experience recurrent bouts of thrush, it's essential to speak to your doctor, as there could be an underlying reason why you keep getting thrush.


How our service works

With PrescriptionDoctor you can buy fluconazole online.

To begin your order of fluconazole 150mg capsules, fill in our online medical form, and one of our prescribers will determine whether fluconazole is suitable for you.

If our prescriber approves your request before 3 pm on a weekday, our qualified pharmacists will dispense and dispatch fluconazole tablets to you via discreet next-day delivery.


How does fluconazole work?

Fluconazole stops fungal cells from producing ergosterol which they need to survive.

Without ergosterol, the membrane of the fungal cells weakens and breaks apart, killing the cell.

How long does fluconazole take to work?

How long fluconazole will take to work will depend on the locality and severity of the condition.

For oral thrush, vaginal thrush and penile thrush (balanitis), your symptoms should improve after taking fluconazole for a week.

Other conditions, such as ringworm or fungal nail infections, may take longer.


How do I take fluconazole?

Swallow fluconazole 150mg capsules whole with a glass of water.

Do not crush or chew fluconazole capsules.

Fluconazole capsules can be taken with or without food.


How long do I need to take Fluconazole?

The typical dose for genital thrush is a single 150mg fluconazole capsule as a one-off dose.

Other fungal infections may require a longer course of treatment. For instance, athlete's foot may require treatment for up to 6 weeks.

Our Pharmacist can review and suggest a suitable treatment plan for you to clear your thrush.

It is vital that you keep taking fluconazole for as long as prescribed. Stopping treatment early can cause the infection to come back.


What should I do if I forget to take fluconazole?

If you forget to take fluconazole when you should, take it as soon as you remember.

If it is nearly time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue taking fluconazole as your doctor has instructed.

Do not take more fluconazole to make up for the missed dose.

What should I do if I take too much fluconazole?

If you or someone else takes more fluconazole than prescribed, go straight to your nearest accident and emergency department. Take the packaging and remaining medicine with you so that doctors know how much of the medicine was taken.

If you are unsure how to take fluconazole 150mg capsules, ask your doctor.


Who should not take fluconazole?

Fluconazole is not suitable for everyone. You should speak to your doctor before taking fluconazole to ensure it is safe.

Fluconazole may interact with some medications. You should inform our prescriber of all the other medications you are currently taking during your online consultation.

Fluconazole 50mg & 150mg capsules contain lactose. Inform our prescriber if you are intolerant to some sugars.


Fluconzole 50mg & 150mg interations

 Fluconazole may interact with the following:

  • Astemizole
  • Cisapride
  • Ergotamine
  • Methysergide
  • Pimozide
  • Quinidine
  • Terfenadine

This is not a complete list of interactions. To view a comprehensive list, visit NICE Interactions.

If you are unsure whether fluconazole will interfere with a medicine you are currently taking, inform our online prescribers of all medicine you have taken in the last four weeks.


Fluconazole side effects and cautions

Before taking fluconazole, you must read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine.

All medicines carry the risk of side effects, though not everybody gets them. Being vigilant of potential side effects is essential to your care.

Common fluconazole side effects include:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Headache
  • Increases in blood tests of liver function
  • Nausea
  • Rash
  • Stomach ache
  • Vomiting

This is not an extensive list of side effects. Further information regarding the safety of fluconazole, including a complete list of side effects, can be found within the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine.

If you experience any side effects of fluconazole, inform our prescriber

Allergies

Do not take fluconazole if you are allergic to fluconazole or any of the other active ingredients listed in the leaflet.

If you experience an allergic reaction after taking fluconazole, contact your doctor and go straight to your nearest A&E department.

Signs of an allergic reaction:

  • Chest tightening
  • Dry, red and cracked skin
  • Itchy, red, watery eyes
  • Raised, itchy, red rash (hives)

Frequently asked questions

Will fluconazole affect my ability to drive or operate machinery?

Fluconazole is unlikely to affect your ability to drive or operate a machine.

If you experience dizziness or drowsiness while taking fluconazole, you should avoid such activities until you feel safe.


Can I drink alcohol while taking fluconazole?

Alcohol consumption is unlikely to impact the effectiveness of the drug.

However, it is best to avoid or limit alcohol consumption while taking fluconazole. Alcohol consumption can increase the risk of experiencing side effects or make already present side effects worse.

Moreover, the sugar and yeast in alcoholic beverages may promote the fungal infection to grow, making it difficult to treat.


Will fluconazole affect my contraceptive pill?

It is unlikely that fluconazole will impact the effectiveness of your oral contraceptive pill.

If you experience vomiting or diarrhoea after taking fluconazole, follow the appropriate guidance listed in the leaflet for your oral contraceptive pills.
