Generic Diflucan Fluconazole Makes the Difference in Treatment of Fungal Infection

Diflucan which is medically called Fluconazole is a triazole antifungal agent and performs the primary task of inhibiting the growth of fungus. But, it can also wipe out infections as a fungicidal agent in higher concentrations. Fluconazole acts on the fungi organisms by destroying their cytoplasmic membrane. As a result, the fungal growth is slowed down.

The absorption and effectiveness of Diflucan (Fluconazole) is not hampered by the presence of food in the stomach. It quickly shows its presence in tears, skin and urine. The concentration of this medicine is at the least 10 times more that in saliva, phlegm and vaginal fluid. This delimitates the process of excretion of Diflucan through urine and sweat. For this very reason, physicians prefer Diflucan (Fluconazole) for treating the conditions of skin and vaginal yeast infections.

Yeast infections generally occur over the skin. The most dangerous yeast which is responsible for a variety of diseases in human beings is Candida albicans. It grows in the moist parts of human skin such as mouth, groin, armpit, genital areas of both men and women, and fold of the buttocks. Diflucan tablets can cure candidiasis or yeast infection which is localized to the skin. It may also treat some serious systemic infections in patients with weak immune system. This group of patients suffers from cancer or AIDS most of the time. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy drugs also possess lowered immunity.

Patients should adopt certain precautions while taking Diflucan (Fluconazole). If they suffer from irregular heartbeat or liver disease, they should refrain from using Diflucan as it may exasperate the problem. Diflucan (Fluconazole) is well-tolerated by patients in majority of cases. However, there have been certain reports of nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, headache and dizziness from a number of patients. Some serious side effects of Fluconazole may include allergic reactions leading to swelling of the face, tongue, or lips, closing of the throat, trouble breathing, or hives and liver impairment that includes jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes), abnormal weakness, dark urine, pale stools, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, or low fever.

Confer with your doctor first concerning the limitations on food, beverages or activities during Diflucan (Fluconazole) treatment. The generic medication may cause dizziness in patients. So, be cautious while driving and try to avoid risky activities as far as possible. Confine your alcohol consumption while continuing generic Diflucan treatment as both the medicine and alcohol in conjunction can be harmful to your liver.
