Diflucan A Prescription Medication For Fungal Infections

August 14, 2019


Diflucan, the brand-name form of fluconazole,
is a prescription medication used to treat fungal infections. It is also used to prevent
fungal infections in people with a weak immune system. Diflucan belongs to a group of drugs
called azole antifungals, which work by inhibiting a fungal enzyme needed for the fungus to grow.
This medication comes in tablet and oral suspension forms. The oral form is usually taken once
a day by mouth, with or without food. Some of the common side effects of Diflucan include
headache, diarrhea, nausea, and dizziness. Do not drive or operate machinery until you
know how Diflucan will affect you. This medication is only to be used if prescribed by your healthcare
provider. For RxWiki, I’m Bethany Muhlstein.
