Hello I'm Dr Chip

There are no adverse reactions between the two drugs and taking them together doesn't diminish the effectiveness of either medication

So you can take both together

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

You could help me by....answering it? I have been on
I have been on antibiotics (zithromax) for a cold, I usually get a yeast infection afterwards, so I took a Diflucan tablet on day 3 of those meds. On day 4, I had to go to my dentist and I was required to take additional antibiotics due to recent knee surgery. I was told I would probably get a yeast infection and it was suggested that I take another Diflucan, so I did on day 7. On day 9, I have symptoms of a yeast infection (burning)...could I still have gotten a yeast infection after the preventative Diflucan? Or, could taking so much Diflucan have possibly allowed a Bacterial Vaginosis infection to occur? I am leaving for vacation on Sunday and I don't know what to do. Thank you. … read more
