Buy Diflucan (fluconazole) 150mg/200mg over the counter
What is Diflucan?
Diflucan is an orally administered antifungal medicine. It is available as both a tablet and an oral suspension. The active ingredient of Diflucan is fluconazole which belongs to a drug class known as triazole antifungal agents. It is related to clotrimazole (Lotrimin), miconazole (Micatin), ketoconazole (Nizoral), and itraconazole (Sporanox).
Fluconazole prevents the growth of membranes around fungal cells thereby preventing the growth of fungi. It is effective against fungal infections caused by Candida in all parts of the body, including lungs, mouth, blood, throat, and the genital area. Vaginal thrush (yeast infection caused by the overgrowth of Candida) is often treated with fluconazole. Diflucan is also indicated as a prophylaxis (prevention of disease) in individuals with a weakened immune system due to chemotherapy, bone marrow transplant, and diseases affecting the immune system, such as AIDS. Such individuals are prone to internal fungal infections as their immune system is unable to fight disease-causing micro-organisms. Because of the dangers associated with internal fungal infections, prophylaxis using antifungal drugs, such as Diflucan, is necessary. Diflucan may also be effective against urinary tract infections (UTIs), pneumonia, and peritonitis caused by Candida. In addition, this drug is also used in the treatment of cryptococcal meningitis.
Diflucan can be taken by both adults and children. It works best when the concentration of the drug in the body remains constant for the duration of treatment. Therefore, it should be taken at the same time every day. It can be taken both before and after meals. While certain conditions, such as vaginal yeast infections, can be treated using a single 150 mg dose, other conditions may require a full course of treatment lasting weeks. Diflucan is typically taken once a day. The recommended course of Diflucan should be completed even when the symptoms disappear to prevent the infection from recurring.
Diflucan is a product of Pfizer Limited. Some other brand names of fluconazole are Azocan and Canesten Oral. Diflucan is available as 150 mg and 200 mg hard capsules. The dosage required varies depending on what condition is being treated. Diflucan 150 mg capsules have a blue body with a turquoise cap overprinted with “Pfizer” and the code “FLU-150”. Diflucan 200 mg capsules have a white body with a purple cap overprinted with “Pfizer” and the code “FLU-200”.
