If you’ve had a yeast infection or a baby with thrush, you may already be familiar with Diflucan, or maybe it’s your first time dealing with a yeast infection/thrush and you simply want to know if you can get a Diflucan prescription online.

Let’s talk about how you can get Diflucan online, what it is, how it works, its benefits and side effects.

Can You Buy Diflucan Online?

If you’ve used Diflucan in the past to treat something like a yeast infection, you may be wondering if you can buy Diflucan online.

Federal law requires you to have a conversation with a doctor before you can get any prescription medication, including Diflucan.

While some websites claim they can ship medications like Diflucan to your door from pharmacies in another country, you can’t be sure you’re getting a safe product since you’re buying from a website that skirts the law.

Luckily, there is a safe, legal way to buy Diflucan online.

All you have to do is make a video or phone appointment with one of PlushCare’s trusted doctors. They will talk to you about your medical history and current symptoms and medications. Then, if they think you’ll benefit from a Diflucan prescription, they can electronically send it to a pharmacy near you.

Now let’s take an in depth look at Diflucan.

What is Diflucan?

Diflucan is the brand name for fluconazole, an antifungal medication that’s used to treat fungal illnesses like yeast infections in women and thrush in babies.

While fungal infections typically cause thrush and vaginal yeast infections, a fungus can invade any part of the body, including the lungs, throat, esophagus, blood, or bladder.

How Does Diflucan Work?

Diflucan works by preventing fungus from making its own form of plant-based cholesterol that the fungus needs to survive. In this way, Diflucan works by killing the fungus that’s affecting you.

Diflucan Dosage and Treatment

You should take Diflucan exactly as prescribed by your doctor. It’s available as a cream, tablet, or liquid suspension. The course of treatment will depend on the type of fungal infection.

Vaginal infections often only require a single dose of Diflucan, while other types of infections will require longer treatment and may start with a double dose.

Always follow your doctor’s dosing and administration instructions.

Side Effects of Diflucan

As with all medications, Diflucan does present a risk of side effects, including:

  • Headache
  • Baldness
  • Stomach pain
  • Nausea
  • Chills, body aches, fever, flu symptoms
  • Dizziness
  • Rash or skin lesions
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Severe stomach or abdominal pain
  • Changes in your sense of taste
  • Easy bruising or bleeding, unusual weakness
  • Swelling of the mouth, lips, and tongue

This is not a complete list of side effects. Ask your doctor about the potential side effects before taking Diflucan.

Considerations and Precautions of Diflucan

Diflucan isn’t appropriate for every patient or every situation. It may cause interactions with other medical conditions you have or other medications that you take.

Diflucan Interactions

Always tell your doctor about every medication you take, including over-the-counter medications, as well as vitamins and supplements. Diflucan can cause interactions with hundreds of medications, including:

  • Antibiotics
  • Psychiatric medications
  • Medications for mood and/or depression
  • Statins for cholesterol
  • Drugs for irregular heartbeat
  • Erythromycin-containing drugs
  • Hismanal (astemizole)
  • Juxtapid (lomitapide)
  • Lozol (indapamide)

This is not a complete list of drugs that may a have interactions with Diflucan. Be sure to talk to your doctor about all current and past medications.

Other Diflucan considerations

Diflucan shouldn’t be taken by people with certain medical conditions. Always tell your doctor if you have any chronic health conditions, but be especially certain to tell your doctor if you:

  • Are pregnant
  • Have kidney problems
  • Are taking medications that change heart rhythm or conduction like Ery-tab (erythromycin), Orap (pimozide), or quinidine
  • Are allergic to azoles (the building block of a certain class of antifungal drugs that includes fluconazole)
