How Long Does It Take Fluconazole To Work?

August 16, 2019

Good day, Erick Bakker here, naturopath, author
of Candida Crusher with another frequently asked question. This one regards a pharmaceutical
drug of fluconazole, an anti-fungal drug that many people are familiar with. How long does it take for fluconazole to work? The way for me to answer that question would
be to ask you, have you taken it before? What results did you get with it before? What’s
the shape of your body? What dosage are you taking? What’s the health of your digestive
system when you take it? How bad is your yeast infection? There are many variables here. But fluconazole
doesn’t take that long to work. It can work very quickly, a matter of days. My concern
with fluconazole is your body soon gets used to this drug and when the fungus comes back,
it will come back stronger and mutate requiring longer fluconazole usage, high dosages of
fluconazole, and some of my patients take this drug once a week for years on end; a
ridiculous thing to do. If something works and then stops working,
you should stop taking it. You don’t keep taking higher and higher dosages. Fluconazole
has a big effect on the body in general. It can create nausea and liver toxicity and multiple
side effects. It’s not something I recommend that you take. There are many strong natural
things that you can take which counter yeast infections. I’d like you to have a look in my book, Candida
Crusher, Chapter 7, particularly Section 4 of that book where I explain about the special
foods and also the special dietary supplements which are going to counter your yeast infection
much more effectively than fluconazole without side effects but also without the resistance
that the yeast will build toward these things. So I hope that answers your question. Thank

    Ok but does it work for skin fugus? Just got some Fluconazole and was wondering how long it takes to kill the skin fungus?

    Hi Dr Bakker I just wondered what's your view on nystatin which supposedly has fewer side effects than Fluconazole? Thank you for the informative videos

    Dr prescribed me 100mg 15 pills . One pill a day. Hopefully, it gets rid of my yeast infection on my groin and face.

    I’ve noticed this drug being sold over the counter?? I thought you needed a prescription. This is something I discovered during pregnancy. Yikes!

    Do you recommend taking natural antimicrobials in between fluconazole doses? Nothing natural worked for a year, first time taking fluconazole.

    This seems realistic… I took one dose pill for a vaginal infection and it came back in 4 days so she made me take another….after a week, the yeast infection came back but was more strong. It was itchier, more intense burning and sharp odor and so much discharge… I went back and she prescribed diflucan 1 dose again 🙄🙄
