I understand Fluconazole comes as a 150mg single dose. I have 100mg tablets can I use instead?
Pharmacist: Drugdad, Pharmacist replied 1 year ago

Yes, fluconazole does come in 150mg dose. It is usually used for Vaginal infection as a one time dose.

Correct. But I understand it can also be used by Males for penile yeast infections?
Pharmacist: Drugdad, Pharmacist replied 1 year ago

If you have fungal infection on your groin, you may need more than one time dose. The dose can range from 200 to 400 mg once daily. This is why you need to see your doctor.

Just wanted to know if I break a 100mg tablet in half and take with a 100mg tablet is that equivalent to 150mg one tme does, or is the 150mg tablet some form of slow release tablet
Pharmacist: Drugdad, Pharmacist replied 1 year ago

Yes, you can do that.

Are there any interactions with 20mg Lipitor I should be aware of?
Pharmacist: Drugdad, Pharmacist replied 1 year ago

Yes, there is potential interaction but it is minimal. The fluconazole can increase the concentration of lipitor but this does usually happen right away. It is a long term issue.

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.
