If you have been suffering from a Candida or yeast infection, your doctor may prescribe you a prescription antifungal medication named Diflucan, or to use the generic name, fluconazole. This antifungal is well-researched and has been around for a long time, but it does come with side effects. There are also concerns that fungal pathogens like Candida albicans may be developing resistance to it. Be aware that, although Diflucan can be an effective choice, there are natural antifungals that have been shown to be as effective (and sometimes even more effective). Choosing a natural antifungal may offer the same benefits as a prescription antifungal, but with fewer side effects and less stress on your liver and detoxification pathways. (1, 2)Antifungal medications and natural antifungals will work best when combined with lifestyle changes. You should address whatever caused your Candida (diet, antibiotics, antacids, etc) for the best chance of eliminating your Candida infection ad preventing it from coming back. Exactly 19 months ago, I got my first yeast infection. My doctor called it when she saw me for a pap smear, and had me use Monistat's 7-day treatment. She also told me to use cotton underwear, don't go swimming, only take showers, don't wear tight clothes, and use a condom if I have sex. I saw the doctor, and she prescribed something like Monistat, only it was by prescription. I went back to the doctor, and she didn't know what to do. So she had me tested for HIV, diabetes, and tested to see if I was deficient in any vitamins or something. No HIV, no diabetes, no vitamin/nutritional issues came back. She also asked me to explain exactly how I was using the products that she had prescribed before, and confirmed that I was doing it properly. The Diflucan didn't work either, and a yeast infection was back again in about a week's time. At this point my doctor was annoyed and not helpful.
Diflucan is an effective treatment for Candida infections, but there are a couple of issues to be aware of. Firstly, prescription antifungals tend to be associated with lots of side effects. And secondly, there is increasing resistance to Diflucan among fungal pathogens. Hnedé alebo žlté škvrny na zuboch možno odstrániť doma!
