What Is Diflucan Used For?
Diflucan, or fluconazole, belongs to a class of medications known as triazole antifungal medications. Diflucan is indicated for the treatment of vaginal candidiasis (vaginal yeast infections due to Candida). Diflucan is also indicated for the treatment of oropharyngeal and esophageal candidiasis and cryptococcal meningitis. Diflucan has been shown to be active against most of the following strains:
- Candida albicans
- Candida glabrata
- Candida parapsilosis
- Candida tropicalis
- Cryptococcus neoformans
Diflucan - Dosage & OTC Availability
Diflucan can be taken orally in tablet form and as an oral suspension and is also available by intravenous infusion. Fluconazole itself is found as a white powder with a crystalline structure. Diflucan (fluconazole) is a prescription medicine and is therefore not available over-the-counter (OTC). The cost of Diflucan is roughly $2 per pill at many pharmacies which makes most Diflucan regimens relatively affordable. Diflucan coupons may be available from the manufacturer or other sources. Some insurance plans may also cover the costs associated with a Diflucan prescription. Diflucan 150 mg is a typically prescribed dose for minor issues. Diflucan (fluconazole) tablets are pink and trapezoidal in shape and are available in bottles or blister packs containing fluconazole 50 mg, fluconazole 100 mg and fluconazole 200 mg tablets. Diflucan tablets should be stored below 30° C.
Diflucan (Fluconazole) - Metabolism
After oral or intravenous ingestion of fluconazole, the bioavailability is approximately 90% and peak plasma concentrations are observed in between one and two hours in fasted, normal volunteers. Steady state concentrations are generally achieved within ten days. Fluconazole has a plasma elimination half-life of 20-50 hours after an oral dose. Diflucan can be take with or without meals. Fluconazole is affected by renal function as much of the drug is excreted in the urine. As a result, Diflucan should be administered with caution or not used at all by people with renal dysfunction (kidney problems).
Can I Buy Diflucan Online or OTC?
Diflucan (fluconazole) requires a prescription from a licensed medical provider to be dispensed in the United States. As a result, one cannot just buy Diflucan online and Diflucan OTC is not available. Push Health can connect people who need Diflucan medication with licensed medical providers who can prescribe Diflucan pills if it is appropriate and safe to do so.
