Does Fluconazole Work for Vaginal Yeast Infection? - Beat Candida
An alternative well-known oral drug for candida yeast infections consists of Fluconazole Diflucan. I am amazed how many women I have seen who have been prescribed Fluconazole weekly on an ongoing basis to counter vaginal yeast infections, sometimes for years, yet with no further recommendations in terms of dietary or lifestyle modifications. Incredibly, some of these women have taken Diflucan for five years or more, one tablet per week. I have helped many women who have taken this drug, and have found that most all can discontinue its use after a period of eight to twelve weeks, even those who have been taking Diflucan for several years.
