Waited until I got my period to ensure I was not pregnant prior to taking prescribed Flagyl & Diflucan. In the meantime I pursued natural/homeopathic and the discharge stopped by Day 1. This is what I took : JARROW FEMDOPHILUS (oral PROBIOTIC tablets), BV Essentials prebiotic + cranberry, BV Essentials/YeastGard vaginal suppositories. Also took Garlic capsules, Spirula (chlorophyll), Vitamin ... Show Full Comment

I had a terrible infection which caused me great discomfort and irritation. My doctor prescribed me these pills, one for each day for 3 days and my infection now is almost cured. However, I would suggest that the pills should be accompanied by a cream that can applied, as prescribed by your doctor.

I had a yeast infection to the 10th Power!!! I tried some OTC vaginal meds and definitely didn't work out for me. Seem like it got worse. Very embarrassing and uncomfortable NOT A GOOD FEELING!!! My Dr prescribed me 2 doses at 150mg each. Took the 1st pill at noon and I could really feel relief within hours. I highly recommend this pill for quick relief. Thank goodness for Fluconazole!

I LOVE Diflucan/Fluconazole. It has saved my sanity twice when I had severe yeast infections. I'll never go back to creams if I don't have to. The relief starts kicking in within 15 minutes for me. It's a modern miracle. The only negative is that it's only available as a prescription, which delays your access to it in a very miserable and uncomfortable time. In Canada, you ca ...
