Diflucan review by 30 year old female patient

  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Moderately Effective
Side effects:   Moderate Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   Yeast Infection
Dosage & duration:   1 single dose pill taken repeated dose 2x, one week apart for the period of 1 week
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   none
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   Eliminate yeast infection
Side effects:   The yeast infection occurred after taking oral antibiotics. After I took the first dose of Diflucan, I developed an itchy, raised, red, rough rash on both sides of my face and the yeast infection only moderately improved. I took a second dose a week later and the same problem occurred. After that incident I discontinued use. The Diflucan never did resolve the yeast problem and for months after I continued to suffer from skin rashes that may or may not have been related. Eventually the yeast problem went away by taking probiotics and an herbal Usnea tincture.
Comments:   One single dose oral pill. Repeated dose one week later.
