It should be in the instructions.

Chronic yeast infections btw go away with much difficulty, and usually take long courses of like 2 weeks, which may need to be repeated. Also, flucanazoles wreak havoc upon your liver which may prove irreparable, so be careful with self-medication! Take it preferably with something to help your liver! And never EVER with alcohol!

*Diflucan is an anti-fungal prescription medication that can be used to treat tough cases of yeast infection in the body. The 150mg dose is used to treat vaginal yeast infections, and in general only one pill is given. The study this recommendation was based on had the women taking 3 pills 72 hours apart and then further doses once a week. This seemed to eliminate recurring yeast infections from the study participants.

This does not mean that one pill will cure your yeast infection. It may take a much longer course, along with diet changes and immunity boosters. Diflucan basically makes the fungus weaker, but your body still has to kill it.

Taking Diflucan to avoid using Monistat is not recommended in general because, just like with antibiotics, taking anti-fungals but not killing off the infection can actually create resistant candida and make it nearly impossible to get rid of.

Only take this medication under a doctor's supervision, like any other prescription. You should also insist on a yeast culture to verify that you in fact have a yeast infection rather than a bacterial infection. Knowing your specific situation will help the doctor recommend a dosage specific for you. There is no one course of Diflucan that is best for everyone in every situation.*

It depends on what you are trying to treat. If its a yeast infection (which diflucan can sometimes be prescribed for) there are options over the counter. But there is no OTC medication that is equal too it. You can find many antifungals over the counter, but its the antibiotic part of diflucan you will not be able to find.
