I think diflucan stays active in your body for 5 days. I have tried it many times but it wont take away my yeast infection. I have had a nonstop yeast infection for a long time. I am currently under a gyno's care but it still has not went away. Did diflucan work for you?
i am having the same issue with the yeast. but i have tailked my doctor into letting me self medcate myself. i took climdesseone does cream, after three days i took a diflucan then i took another diflucan four days later and the my period came one. dam i am trid of yeast, i have had a yeast for the last four &half yrs faithfully and to tell the truth it is not a fun game!
@eeliika - how soon after taking fluconazole did your diarrhea start? I took 2 150mg pills (as directed) on friday, and tuesday night I came down with bad diarrhea. Today it came on even worse (pure water-like). mild nausea is here as well. I called the pharmacy, but they seemed to think that the drug should be out of my system by now. I think it could be yeast die-off (treating suspected yeast overgrowth throughout body), but was surprised that it happened 4 days after the drug. how soon was your diarrhea?
I actually had diarrhea before I took fluconazole, so I do think diarrhea is more associated with the yeast infection die-off rather than the medication. However, I took fluconazole on Sept 19 and my stool has only recently returned to normal on Oct 4. This is my second time taking the one dose pill and I believe it worked for me this time because I stopped drinking alcohol and I stopped smoking, and I also lowered my sugar and bread intake while the medicine was in my system. I felt like the medicine was in my system for about two weeks because I was extremely dry while on the medicine, but after the two weeks my moisture began to return, minus the yeast discharge. Hope this helps.
About 4 days after taking one pill I started to feel bad. I had developed a rash 24-48 hours afterwards the pill. Now I have water diareah and stomach cramping. I feel extremely dehydrated no mater how much water I have. I feel light headed in waves and nausea in waves as well. This rash has not happened before on this med but headaches and diareah has. I think it stays in your system about 5-7 days. No more for me. I feel awful.
I had a sinus infection and was given an antibiotic for it that then caused a yeast infection. I was then prescribed diflucan and after 2 hours, had diarrhea. That was on Friday at 3pm. Then the really bad stomach aches/abdominal pains began. I've been tired and weak. I've also been having trouble sleeping. The yeast infection did not fully go away. I bought monistat which has made the yeast go away. But it's now Tuesday night and I'm still having diarrhea and stomach cramps. How much longer should I expect this to continue? When should I consider going to the dr about my liver? 5 days? 7 days? I will never take diflucan ever again.
