Effectiveness:   Ineffective

Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   yeast infection
Dosage & duration:   one pill taken once a day for the period of 3-7 days
Other conditions:   None

Reported Results
Benefits:   pill added nothing to the treatment process
Side effects:   no known side effects from the pill
Comments:   I was prescribed fluconazole (pill taken orally) and clotrimazole (cream applied topically) for the treatment of candida. I was first told to take the pill, and then use the cream in 3 days if the pill did not work to reduce the yeast infection. I took the pill for 3 days alone, without the cream, and saw no improvement. I took the pill plus the cream for 4 more days, and it slowly started to clear up. I was told that one pill, taken once, and not repeatedly each day, should have cleared it up.
