Diflucan and flagyl

Common Questions and Answers about Diflucan and flagyl

diflucan

I haven't been able to see my doctor yet but over the past three weeks I was treated for a bacterial infection with a 7 day course of Flagyl then the following week I was treated for a regular yeast infection with a single dose of Diflucan and now this week I have missed my period. I am completely panicked after reading all the warnings online...are these two drugs going to cause birth defects in a developing fetus!
I then got another infection down below and was given Flagyl again, took the course and felt horrible again. I had blood tests for the fatigue etc and was told I was anemic. I then became poorly about 7 weeks ago and went to the Dr's, I had blood tests done again. My anemia was being monitored over the months and for six months, or should I say, since the Flagyl I've had neutropenia which has gradually been reversing but I am still neutronpenic.
I thought it was a soap allergy at first but it didn't go away so I tried a one day over the counter yeast cream-it got worse. So I asked my doc about it and she gave me a diflucan pill. The symptoms subsided but returned after a couple of days. I tried another pill the following week and the same thing happened. I went back to the doc but I had to see a different doc because of the holidays. When he took a look he said, "oh yeah these are classic signs of a yeast infection.
I'm afraid to take it because i still don't know I'm pregnant. I googled also the treatment of Ureaplasma and flagyl and diflucan are not in it.Any advise is appreciated.
I had a wet mount test done at the gyno and she said she saw a few clue cells, but everything looked normal. She went ahead and wanted to treat me for BV. She gave me Flagyl and Diflucan to take after the Flagyl. I have taken three full days of the pills and I am still having the same symptoms. The mucus and the burning doesn't happen everytime just occasionally. I just don't know what to do and I am getting worried. I seen several different doctors and end up with the same solutions (NOTHING)!
Since then I have been repeating this pattern and have used clindesse,and metro gel countless times. Sex is extreemly painful and my marriage is begining to suffer. I just want this gone.Could my husband be reinfecting me? Could the "adult toys" be reinfecting me.Should my doctor test for something else. He has done clamydia,and trigamonisas tests......
Surgery and Illness History Have had some gastrointestinal problems (constipation/diarrhea/IBS), allergies and repeated sinuses/throat/ear issues for as long as I can remember. Still battle with sinusitis and ear problems which is acknowledged by GP as "wicked allergies" but ENT says he sees nothing wrong with ears which remain chronically painful and crackle as if pressure changing most of the time. 1971 Tonsillectomy.
Went to the doctor and was put on another round of Flagyl. Yeast infection came again. Took diflucan last night. Now, a few days after finishing the doxycycline, the pelvic infection is back. I WANT TO DIE!!! I am so sick of dealing with this! I just don't know where to go from here. I have a pelvic ultrasound scheduled for next week. I guess I just want to vent about this... and I welcome any advice. I just want to get back to normal!
Some things which may cause this imbalance to happen are the use of antibiotics and steroids, hormonal and chemical changes (natural or unnatural, such as contraceptives), diabetes and other illnesses that cause us to have a lowered immunity. How you can go about treating your yeast infection is up to you.
In January of this year, I noticed an odor to the discharge. I went to the doctor and was dianosed with BV and prescribed Flagyl (yuck, I hate antobiotics). It went away for a few months, but I recently noticed the symptoms return. I have an appointment on Monday with my doctor again. However, I fear that they are just going to prescribe more antibiotics, which i don't want to take. It just seems the more I try to do to remedy the problem(s) the worse it gets. :( Help!
I'm so afraid of the side effects. However I've been taking Flagyl and think it's causing depression. Also am wondering if the dizziness/brain fog/ weakness could be manifesting from underlying depression or anxiety. I don't feel anxious or horribly depressed, but I know if can manifest in many ways. I'm wondering could my lyme disease be gone and all that's left is depression/ anxiety causing these lingering symptoms. I know it's probably not likely... but thought I'd ask.
For the past 7 months I've used monistat, diflucan, flagyl, terconozale, and diflucan four or five more times. Recently went to a specialist who said I looked raw, but that he was pretty sure it wasn't an infection, though I'm waiting to hear about a culture. I've had std testing including herpes and it's all negative. He said that a lot of times it takes a while for the body/vagina to get back to normal.
go to Dr. start diflucan 1x and flagyl (7 days) symptoms lessen 5-21: oral sex to boyfriend/no vaginal intercourse, he touches me clitorally and his mouth during.
Good grief - I bet you are pulling your hair out about now!! when the provider gave you flagyl and diflucan, did they properly test you for yeast and bv or just throw both at you? it's unfortunate that the std doc i so under educated about the blood tests he is doing :( Unfortunately that seems to be the attitude in general about herpes testing in europe fro what I've seen at the conferences I've been at. You are right about the testing though, he is wrong. I hope you get answers soon!
2) My wife's genital irritation also persists after treatment with diflucan and generic flagyl. Did I pass anything on to her? If so, what tests should she undergo to determine the cause? 3) Are urine tests reliable when testing for Chlymidia and Gonnorhea? Like I mentioned earlier, my urine sample were tested for those with negative results. Did a false negative lead to this more dangerous infection? If not, what in your opinion caused this aggravation? Thank you for your patience!
I went to about 4 different urologists and 2 dermatologists and most of them thought it was a fungal infection. The rash was not always there, it came and goes. I was treated with clotrimazole cream, diflucan (100mg for 3 days), even tried monistat, and Lotrizome (steroid +antifungal). I even tried the flagyl because I was hopeless. Keep in mind these were not done at the same time, but I used them separately for a period of 4 weeks.
The doctor said he thought it was yeast and he gave me a prescription for Diflucan. He took a sample from my cervix to check for STD just in case. The test came back negative for STD, just said I had an overgrowth of yeast. After a couple of weeks, I was not feeling any better, I went back and he said he missed that it was probably trich. So I took the 7 day treatment of Flagyl. Although I feel a lot better than before, I am still having vaginal irriation and slight discomfort.
Hello, It can be due to fungal infection or intertrigo. An intertrigo usually appears red and raw-looking, and may also itch, ooze, and be sore. Please keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical zinc oxide cream like Sudocrem, Desitin are very helpful (apply with a paper towel and not directly with hands).
My gym gave my husband and I both Flagyl 22 yrs ago with no explanation. I thought that I had an "infection" that I didn't want him to get. I suffer from several yeast infections a year, presumably from antibiodics Could these actually be remanants of trichomonas?

I was given flagyl cream after taking flagyl by mouth 4 days and having effects. also given DIFLUCAN 2 times once for when i started flagyl and one for last dose. After the meds i seemed to have new symptoms. I have swollen areas just inside of my vagina. I have had all std test done twice now all neg. The doc cant seem to figure out what is wrong i was also treated for Chlamydia and gonorrhea with a one time shot and doxycyclene 2 times a day for 10 days. even tho the test were negative.
Went to gyn and she saw only a few clue cells, but went ahead and treated me for BV with Flagyl. Then prescribed Diflucan. I finished everything and still feel irritated at times. I have been on a ton of antibiotics this pass summer. You constantly think is it an UTI, BV, or Yeast. I been to the gp and gyno. I took my final dose of Diflucan yesterday after finishing the Flagyl, and I hope I am finished with everything!!
Also, if you take meds like flagyl and cipro, then those will kill off bacteria, and that can cause yeast. Then you took diflucan and then tercon, and that will kill of fungus, which can then can allow bacteria to overgrow, because the good fungal stuff we need to keep the bacteria in check is gone. How were you diagnosed with trich in the first place? And talk to your doc about taking a little break from the meds, and seeing if your body corrects itself.
Can I ask what other abx you take the Flagyl with? I've came across a few articals that discourage the use of Flagyl and Doxy together. But then I came accross a few threads where Drs do just that. So I'm not really sure. It seems like most of the time Drs stop the Doxy and do the Flagyl separately. Not really sure why.
I have been treated many times with diflucan for vaginal yeast but the oral didn't devlop until after 7 months of flagyl, 2 steroid shots, ashtama inhlaer and bactrium treatment. Now it won't go away with diflucan treatment.
Can a man have two relatively large open sores on his penis and it not be an STD? His ex-wife had herpes before they dated. From what I see on your site, it was probably a type 1 breakout; she never had breakouts during their 9 yr marriage. Divorced 5 years. No girlfriends. Six months into monogamous relationship with me: we have sex at the tail end of my period and it feels a little grainy to him (in areas that did not later develop sores).
I had to insist on a culture because my ob/gyn just wanted to keep treating me with the Flagyl/Diflucan combo that they are notorious for! Anyway, the first round of antibiotics worked and now it keeps coming back. I noticed in some of the other posts that a lot of women stated they are hypothyroid, I am as well, I wonder if there could be a link between the two?
was actually Bacterial Vaginosis...which I contracted after the birth of my daughter....My husband and I were both put on Flagyl (the partner can keep passing it back to you without ever having symptoms). Its GONE! :) Hope that helps!
Dear Doctor, I have been treated for bacterial vaginosis 9 months ago with clyndamicine, the infection reoccured 6 months after the treatment and the doc prescribed a week of flagyl and after the antibiotics diflucan because i developed yeast. It is important to mention that i have been sexually active with the same and only man, and STD free, been tested the first and the second time when i got the treatment.
There is tindamax and Flagyl. Then there are naturals, grapefruit seed essential oils or capsules.
