Generic Name: fluconazole Product Name: Diflucan Diflucan capsules (for adults) and oral suspension (for children) are used to treat certain fungal and yeast infections. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why Diflucan has been prescribed for you. Your doctor may have prescribed Diflucan for another reason. Diflucan is available only with a doctor’s prescription. Diflucan belongs to a group of medicines called azole antibiotics. It works by preventing the growth of the fungal and yeast organisms causing your infection. Diflucan contains the active ingredient fluconazole: Capsules (50 mg, 100 mg and 200 mg capsules) contain the inactive ingredient gelatin, lactose, maize starch, silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate, sodium lauryl sulfate, titanium dioxide, (50 and 100 mg capsules only), patent blue V. The 100 mg and 200 mg capsules also contain erythrosine; the 200 mg capsules also contain indigo carmine.
SINCE ORAL ABSORPTION IS RAPID AND ALMOST COMPLETE, THE DAILY DOSE OF DIFLUCAN (FLUCONAZOLE) IS THE SAME FOR ORAL (TABLETS AND SUSPENSION) AND INTRAVENOUS ADMINISTRATION. In general, a loading dose of twice the daily dose is recommended on the first day of therapy to result in plasma concentrations close to steady-state by the second day of therapy. The daily dose of DIFLUCAN for the treatment of infections other than vaginal candidiasis should be based on the infecting organism and the patient's response to therapy. Treatment should be continued until clinical parameters or laboratory tests indicate that active fungal infection has subsided. An inadequate period of treatment may lead to recurrence of active infection. Patients with AIDS and cryptococcal meningitis or recurrent oropharyngeal candidiasis usually require maintenance therapy to prevent relapse. The recommended dosage of DIFLUCAN for oropharyngeal candidiasis is 200 mg on the first day, followed by 100 mg once daily. Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking fluconazole and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. If you are taking the liquid suspension form of this medication, shake the bottle well before each dose. Carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Generally in children, the dose should not exceed 600 milligrams daily unless directed by the doctor.
Fukushima Radiation To Flow To US For At Least 200 Years 'Decommissioning' Destroyed Fukushima Said Impossible Fukushima Reactor Corium Is Deadly For 1,000 Years Technology To Remove Melted Fuel Does Not Exist Fukushima Expert - 'We Have No Idea What To Do' Countless Seals, Whales, Fish Dying Along West Coast Radiation from the destroyed, triple meltdown Fukushima nuclear calamity is killing off masses of animal and vegetable sea life all over the North Pacific. From hundreds of species of kelp and vegetable life to thousands of species of animals…our ocean will never be the same again. You must wake up…your days of eating anything from the Pacific are over. This deadly, cumulative radiation does NOT stop at the beach and continues moving inland on the wind and the rain as it settles into the entire environment of the West Coast on its journey eastward. It then migrates over the Sierras and Cascades and heads into the heartland of America. From there it spreads its endless radioactive legacy over the Eastern states …and then on out over and into the Atlantic, changing the world forever. You can take heart because you don't have to live in fear and wind up a statistic. Natural candida cleansing seems to be a mystery in this modern day and age and candida has become a silent epidemic around the world. Modern day doctors are not trained in this condition or in any of its related diseases that it can cause. They are so rapped up into the mindset of bacteria and viruses being the cause of all disease, that they have no idea that it can cause so many health problems when it gets out of control. These problems can include neurological and nervous system disorders, bone and joint problems, cardiovascular problems, skin disorders, ear, nose, and throat disorders, urinary and vaginal infections, kidney disorders, eye problems, respiratory infections, and of course as everyone knows, intestinal disorders. There are also more and more doctors who believe these fungi cause cancer and from what I have read, they might be right. These problems are so different, and cover such a broad range of health problems, that most doctors just can't seem to put it all together and come up with the right diagnosis. If they do diagnose candida, they prescribe one or two Diflucan and expect the patient to be cured.
