Side Effects Of Fluconazole

August 12, 2019


Thank you for tuning into my video today.
Today I’m going to talk about Fluconazole. Fluconazole is a pharmaceutical antifungal
drug. It’s also known by the name of Diflucan. Fluconazole is also present in a vaginal cream
called Canesten that many women tend to use. I’ve seen many patients over the years who’ve
taken Diflucan. Some with reasonably good success, but in most case, the drug has been
taken recurrently with very, very poor long-term results.
The best result you’re going to get from any pharmaceutical drug usually is the very first
time you take it. The body’s not used to the drug. It will have a powerful effect and give
the desired result. But then what happens is the drug is discontinued, so then the symptoms
come back, and the drug is used again and again and again. And eventually, the body
builds resistance to Diflucan. The resistance is well documented.
I’ve seen some patients who take this drug weekly or monthly for years on end with bad
results. And in many cases, they end up with significant side effects, particularly hepatic
or liver side effects because Diflucan affects Phase II or the glucoronidation pathway of
the liver and it can make a person quite nauseous or sick. They can get skin reactions. They
can get headaches. They can get insomnia. They can get a whole range of different side
effects from Diflucan. I’ve got a pharmaceutical drug guide here
and I’m going to read out some of the common side effects of Diflucan or fluconazole. Side
effects include gastrointestinal upset, headaches, elevated liver function test, abnormal vision,
skin odor, skin rashes, hot flashes, weakness, thirst, shaking in the body, polyuria, which
means urinating a lot, renal pain or pain in the lower pain, kidney pain, dizziness,
seizures, skin itching, sweating, fevers, drug eruptions, more skin rashes, sleeping
disturbances and insomnia, nervousness, pain, female sexual dysfunction, menstrual disorders,
respiratory disorders, deafness, heartburn, high blood pressure, liver damage. Why the
hell would you want to take a drug that creates all these problems just to give you some temporary
relief from a vaginal yeast infection or some kind of a yeast infection you might have?
There are natural ways you can get on top of these infections without resorting to drugs.
Have a look at yeastinfection.org for some natural solutions. If you’re thinking about
an antifungal drug and you want to get some results but don’t want the side effects with
it, have a look at the product I developed called Canxida. It’s going to be more powerful
than fluconazole. You don’t need to take it for years on end. You’re not going to get
all of these side effects that I’ve just read out here. It’s certainly worth a shot.
Think about it. If you’re going to take fluconazole, take it once, but don’t take it recurrently.
There’s no point in it. You’re wasting your time doing that. You’re only going to get
drug resistance and also liver toxicity from taking it.
I hope that answers a frequently asked question I get on this particular drug fluconazole.
Thank you for tuning in.

    Thanks for another informative video. I have been to yeastInfection.org and love your site as well. I suppose the same would be true of Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream 0.1%. I have been mixing margosa (Neem) leaf powder with water for drinking. Today I mixed it with fennel seeds, garlic, apple cider vinegar, a little rubbing alcohol, a drop of tea tree oil, olive oil, and vitamin E oil, and applied it to the crotch and rectal area and the toes. Do you have an opinion about Neem powder (I purchased at an Indian store) as antifungal? And also fennel seeds?        I bought my 100% pure Australian tea tree oil at Walmart. I hope it's of good quality. I am still looking for tea tree oil soap. I think I will buy your Candixa formula as well, maybe the book.

  • Reply Bob M February 26, 2015 at 5:15 am

    Do you recommend a carrier oil to facilitate tea tree oil, or can it be used by itself? My 5 year old grandson has been diagnosed with Asberger's. I have often wondered if I might have it myself long before that. I am now wondering if it might be at least exacerbated by Candida or even the sole cause. Can a 5 year old take Candixa? I have lots of questions. I don't expect you to have time to answer, but it would sincerely be appreciated.

    On top of everything else, I'm becoming increasingly concerned about the Fukushima pollution here on the west coast (in my case, California). As of late, sea lions have been washing up on the beaches of Malibu. Radiation levels are extremely high. If what some are saying on Youtube is true, the Pacific ocean is dying. Thus, the whole planet could be in peril. I'm thinking I might need an iodine supplement. I'm afraid to eat most seafoods. I figure there must be a tie-in with fungus as well. (Then there are pesticides and GMO's and chemtrails as well).

    I wish more doctors had your take on fluconazole . Too many of them here in the states are so quick to throw us on antifungals and antibiotics probably to make their money but also seem very uneducated or don't care about all the negatives that come with it. thanks for the informative vid, and perspective on the topic.

    I got Thrush a couple years ago from Flucanazole for prostate & lost 50 pounds from not being able to eat for 2 weeks..I gave my mother Flucanazole for a yeast infection last week (no directions from her primary or pharmacy) she had her INR checked a few days later & it was 4.4 was 2.5 week before 3.0 being therapeutic for her.Couldn't figure why the increase ?..no infection or diet changes.It dawned on me this morning to check the interaction with warfarin & there it was & I gave her a second dose last night.You gotta do so much frikkin legwork & research these days,you can't count on doctors to even be on top of this ! 4.4 is in the moderately serious range.

    Please I want help. For many months now I had yeast infection after yeast infecrion. After many many rounds of fluconazole doctor decided to take a swab test. I was already found with CIN1 and HPV before that. He found Mixoplasma hominis and Urealis urealyticum. He gave me antibiotics for 10 days and I was so angry that I weaped in front of him the nurse and my husband 🙁 I came back and told them that I have mouth thrush now and white parts in my poop. They scheduled me for a vaginal swab again. I live in greece so I cant get good doctors with insurance. only by paying 50 or 80 euros each visit and I would to be ok but I cant. I am broke and live with my husbands pay.

    I read all day. I read about deatomaceous earth and that it could clean up your intestines from candida. Is this true? Have you ever heard of it? What is your opinion?

  • Reply Natalie Ava October 15, 2017 at 5:42 pm

    Fluconazol basically simply covers up your symptoms but it doesn’t resolve the root problem why you‘re having a yeast infection in the first place. Don’t take it. Save your money and change your diet, it’s the only way to truly recover and heal

    Doctor, is it true that many studies have show that coconut oil resolve c. albicans in a shorter time than fluconazole? Incidentally, terbinifin does absolutely nothing for candida.

  • Reply Douglas Kirby L June 27, 2018 at 1:34 pm

    Doctor, could you discuss the healing properties of undecylenic acid and the fatty acids in coconut oil?

  • Reply Douglas Kirby L June 27, 2018 at 1:39 pm

    The physician gave me a 7 day course of diflucan and it made me sicker than a dog. I don't care much for conventional medicine these days, since most physicians leave us about half sick. Who would have known that a kitchen cabinet apothecary has better curative effects than the stuff physicians poison us with.

  • Reply Douglas Kirby L June 27, 2018 at 1:44 pm

    I asked the physician for something for what appeared to be a cutaneous candida rash. She acted like I was pandering for drugs or some such nonsense. Then she prescribed 7 diflucan. If I would have known, I would have told her to keep the stuff. She was an infectious disease quack who more than probably leaves her patients about half sickened with whatever VD she is treating them for.

  • Reply Douglas Kirby L June 27, 2018 at 1:45 pm

    It's like physicians want you to beg them for a cure. I have really no use for them anymore. Seems like they wasted about 12 to 16 years of their time and 15 minutes here and there of mine, just to leave me sick with yeast and fungal overgrowth for 4 years. I don't like them.

  • Reply Douglas Kirby L June 27, 2018 at 1:52 pm

    I used to like an Oestopath over an M.D.. Now, I don't care for either one. They take orders from the CDC who tell them to leave us sick while pretending to cure people. I like a homeopath these days. I like homeostasis, not just the illusion of feeling better.

  • Reply Douglas Kirby L June 27, 2018 at 1:56 pm

    It is my personal belief that physicians don't much care about a yeast infection when down the line it knocks the body out of balance and cancer can take hold. Then they can act like it is a $400,000 emergency. They can have a buddy get invasive and kill a person 6 months later with costly surgery and chemicals. Lord, I can't stand these quacks.

  • Reply Douglas Kirby L June 27, 2018 at 2:05 pm

    These phonies always diagnose things macroscopically as 15 different things. Doctor, let me tell you rubbing permitherin on sores do to systemic candida doesn't work either. These narrow minded suckers don't believe a male when he says he has what he thinks is systemic yeast. Ketoconazole doesn't do anything when you're skin is broke down up to your knees and they macroscopically misdiagnose it as tinea pedis. Man, these quacks left me sick.
