What is Triflucan (Fluconazole) used for?
This product is manufactured in Turkey.
Triflucan (Fluconazole) is an oral antifungal medication prescribed to treat a wide variety of fungal infections. It operates by destroying or stopping the reproduction of fungus cells allowing the immune system to naturally destroy the infection. This makes it useful for treating conditions such as vaginal infections, fungal skin infections, or systemic fungal infections. Your doctor may also prescribe it to treat other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Triflucan (Fluconazole)?
Triflucan (Fluconazole) is normally taken once daily at a dosage of one tablet for a cycle of medication lasting one to two weeks, but your individual instructions will be determined by your doctor after observing your health condition and the severity of your symptoms. The tablets should be swallowed with a large glass of water and can be taken with or without food, but a snack or meal is recommended if you experience nausea. Do not stop taking the medicine prior to being told to do so, even if your symptoms disappear, as the infection may not be gone and can return stronger or more resistant to treatment. Never crush, chew, or split these doses before use as this may destroy or alter the effects of their contents. Ask your doctor any questions you have about the medication before beginning application to prevent potential health problems from occurring.
