Had to take amoxycilin after surgery, and I got a horrible yeast infection. Went to my gyno afterwards, and she said that particular antibiotic is known to cause yeast infections.

Got a yeast infection from a new birth control, called the doctor, got tested and they called in a Diflucan prescription. This pill is amazing! I took it once, had no side effects and noticed MUCH improvement after about 24 hours. Took the second dose 4 days later and again, no side effects at all! So much better than creams, yogert or anything OTC! Such a life saver.

I am now on a regime of Prednisone to cure the problem. I hope it works. I'll n ... Show Full Comment

This is THE miracle drug for Yeast Infections. No more messy applicators that contain creams that burn and irritate. I still cannot believe that one pill can cure a YI so quickly. If my doctor puts me on an antibiotic for any reason, I always ask, can you give me a prescription for Diflucan because as we ladies know, for me, that is the #1 reason I get YI's to begin with.

After experiencing symptoms of a YI for a few days, I called my doctor and the NP called in the prescription to my pharmacy. I picked it up an our later and took it right away. Within hours the itching and irritation went away and by day 3 it was completely cleared up. I will never go back to OTC creams again! This medication is amazing! I can't believe 2 little pills can be so effective! An ... Show Full Comment
