Common Questions and Answers about Diflucan how fast does it work


Avatar n tn I used the garlic trick and honey. Idk how long it's gonna take for it to work but I just hope it works fast bc idk if yeast infections make you smell werid bc I take a shower every night and I still smell werid at school even when I put a bunch of scented lotion and some body mist. So does anyone know if it causes you to smell and if it doesn't..then what's causing me to smell werid down there....I shower daily...and still smelly...why...?
Avatar f tn Sed Rate measures the amount of inflammation you currently have. It is an older test that measures the rate or how fast the blood cells settle to the bottom. However, the test is flawed. It DOES measure inflammation, but your sedimentation rate can increase if you bumped your arm before the test! So what good are those results? Let me say that is what my CFS doc told me. I think when a sed rate is in the 50's or 60's s when it is bad.
512442 tn?1216263100 well still waiting to test for a BFP. The only things I've had so far are swollen nipples with blue veins that seem to float on top of my nipples... Its not constantly like that but the past few times I've looked at them they have been. So, waiting it out. I ovulated early this time... Anyways, I wonder if vagisil is gonna help. Hmm. We'll see.
Avatar f tn PlateletGal - I do know some jokes...but not appropriate for here (hee hee hee). I'm still herxing a bit. It's better, but it sure does make me drag sometimes. Feeling a tad blue...Dh is going for his daughter's graduation in NY and i'm not. I just can't make a trip that long...I get feelings of being left out of things. FMS/CFS is isolating and it stinks!!!
555358 tn?1292535661 I was noticing some threads about people that are scheduled to have decompression surgery and it got me thinking; How many of us already have had it? We should make a list. Oh and by-the-by, the term for people that have had it is "zipperhead". I guess like they refer to people with heart surgery as having a zipper in their chest.
Avatar f tn i actually know people who have been prescribed it for sleep (which it is NOT approved for) and they can no longer sleep without it, period. they go nuts when they don't have it.....no matter how long they go without it. this is a heavy duty drug meant for people with real psychiatric disorders...you don't want to whip this drug out unless you've got a real reason to. insomnia isn't NEARLY enough reason.
Avatar m tn I saw a doctor who deals with yeast overgrowth who has given me nystatin and diflucan to try. I have given it a go, but i am 3 weeks into treatment now with 0 improvement. My doctor said i may have yeast overgrowth, but she is starting to wonder if that is just one of my issues. She said that she has never heard of light sensitivity being described as a symptom of yeast overgrowth, and she is starting to wonder if there are other problems going on.
Avatar n tn looking for more info it seems many people have the condition come on with puberty...... does anyone know if it bogs of with another hormonal change or is this going to continue till it covers everywhere? it seems also that some people progress to having problems with sweat after suffering for awhile with the effects after water. She cant use alot of the skin cleansers and reacts to tea tree now quite badly, her skin burns and becomes sore after using them.
1055869 tn?1294203119 ), I am hopeful and praying that it does work. If not, then there are donor eggs, but I really hope that it doesn't have to get to that. They have a 'sale' at my doctor's office for the first round of IVF, which makes it affordable (if there is such a thing!). The price is comprable to that of mini-ivf. Ladies, I decided not to go to RE # 3, because RE # 2, has been so supportive of me, and so comforting, which is something I need right now.
Avatar n tn I would like to try the Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat shampoo, as well as the vinegar remedy to see it it helps. Does anybody have any feedback on if/how/when their suddenly oily crown problem was corrected??? I am newley engaged and am really scared this will effect my hair on my wedding day. :'( Oh, PS.... I noticed a lot of people report this problem in the warmer months. I am from Washington State and it is the middle of October now that I am experiencing this!
Avatar f tn I used the one day Monostat ovule. I used it before bed and wore a pad. No joke, better the next day. Whew, it worked fast thank goodness. Witch hazel is good for relief but not so much for the actual yeast infection. The swelling and pain are from the yeast infection. I had it too! I went from normal to THAT in an instant (no slow build up). Can you call your ob/gyn?
Avatar f tn I use to get painful sores on both sides of my tongue from yeast and diflucan was the only thing to help so it probably does depend on what type of yeast you have but the probiotics is a must because of the antibiotics too.
Avatar n tn it also says on some websites that the average dose of effexor is 75mg but the effective dose is 125-150mg, what does that mean? Is it saying that 75mg doesn't work as well?
529981 tn?1212853666 Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help.
469720 tn?1388149949 The most common EXCUSE for not doing this is that it's too much work. If twenty extra minutes per day for one week is too much effort to avoid stroke or heart attack; I would suggest that maybe avoiding those things isn't really that important to you. I have attached a website with a table of total fat, saturated fat and calorie content http://www.ntwrks.com/~mikev/chart1.
Avatar n tn Personally, I reacted to antibiotics with a raging itch and inflamed foreskin. I started with ketoconazole but it didn't work very fast for the itch. After a careful washing I diluted apple cider vinegar (acetic acid) by half with water and took a dip. It stung for a moment but even that felt better than the itch. Immediately, and I mean immediately, the itch stopped. Even straight vinegar won't kill you. If you're too civilized to take a dip then use a cotton ball.
Avatar n tn My dermatologist prescribed Diflucan, to be taken once a week for 3 weeks. I am hesitant to take it but I am scared of dealing with the reoccurance of the ringworm. I am worried the medication I took may have caused damage to my heart and or liver. Should I be worried about heart failure? If they are damaged, will they heal themselves (recover). What should I do? I have scheduled an appointment with a new doctor, but the appointment is not until the 22nd.
Avatar n tn Only medication - Ortho Tri Cyclen lo (Birth control) and occasional OTC Advil or Excedrin Routine non fasting blood work came back with ALT of 117, AST 51, potassium 5.2, everything else in normal range 1 week prior to test - Botox cosmetic injections (glabella area - 7 injections with a minute needle intramuscularly).
Avatar n tn Also I tried to take it for a couple of days and felt quite strong side effects (although it was probably not long enough to really work out whether it suited me). So he has given me Citalopram instead. I was hoping I could get some advise from people to which one they would recomend? I know it's different for everyone, but this effexor sounds like harsh withdrawal symtoms.
Avatar f tn I kept saying if the treatment doesn't work this time, I will see the doc. But each time , I thought it went away, 1 week later it came back. I am just as frustrated!!! I will be calling the doc. this morning to get an appt. to get this taken care of once and for all. I have never had this many for soooooo long in my life. I would have never thought that ms could have an impact on yeast !!
Avatar n tn It's not the same as the regular-yogurt-on-the-go drinks, but it's called Actimel which has 10 times the active cultures in it that yogurt does and it's proven to boost immunity and is great for the digestive tract. All of these measures have paid off for me, as the infections have significantly dropped off. I think the key is to be consistent in your preventive measures. Hope this is helpful. Good luck to you, I know how horrible those infections are.
Avatar f tn I had it after one surgery...and depending on how fast it spreads it can make ur tongue thick and diff to talk.... Do see ur Dr again and express concern for it hanging on after the round of meds.
Avatar f tn Therefore it only feeding the yeast infection and making it worse. The Lotrimin or Lamisil will NOT work on its own but it does help and is soothing. ( re: the yogurt thing???, "some" yogurts actually contain yeast, and many yogurts are high in sugar so it depends on what yogurt you are eating otherwise, the plain yogurt is supposed to combat yeast) Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after. I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc.
Avatar f tn Would acyclovir work in 36 hours and make the red spots totally disappear? Does it work that fast with new or first time hsv2 outbreaks? It never does with my cold sores. FYI- GC and HIV negative (i demanded swabs that day but he wouldn't Sean for herpes bc he said it wasn't anything to swab I guess due to lack of actual blistering or fluid filled lesions) and I've been negative for hsv2 igg previously, only positive for hsv1 with a high positive score. Thanks!
Avatar m tn A few years ago, I contracted chlmydia from someone I supposedly could trust. Im not sure how long I had it, maybe a few months, before I was treated. For the next few months, I was completely fine. However, at the start of the new year, I began to have many strange and frightening problems. Sex became extremely painful, this started about a year and a half ago. At the time, I was monogamous with one person, whom I had unprotected sex with after he was tested.
Avatar n tn My dr swabbed with a q-tip and then made a slide and read it himself. It was that fast, too. I hope everything goes well with you. I'm sure it is just from the antibiotics for a month. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn The only little bit of relief I have had in the last couple of days is to use a clean washcloth with ice cold water on it and press it into my vagina and keep on reapplying. It does temporarily relieve the pain and itchy and also dries it out a little bit to allow for better healing of the cuts. The pain was unfortunately so bad today that when I applied the washcloth, I almost vomited because of both the pain and relief all at once.
Avatar n tn and now the diflucan (the one thing that's supposed to knock it out) is seeming like it has no effect at all anymore....i cant stand this and don't know what else to do...i really seriously just want my penis to look and feel normal again, and especially for the one "lesion" (it's not open or blistered, just simply looks very red and irritated) to heal so i can go on with a normal sex life and not cringe as it currently feels like a bad friction burn.
