Fluconazole Side Effects

Fluconazole can cause temporary hormonal imbalances. These can lead to digestive issues within the body, creating a few minor side effects. The most common side effects include nausea, vomiting, flatulence and diarrhoea. But the side effects should go away over time as your body adjusts to the medication. If you experience persistent or worsening symptoms, you should talk to your doctor about alternative thrush treatments.

The way that Fluconazole works, it may cause other drugs to remain in your system for a longer period of time. It is not a good idea to take this drug with other medications without first consulting our doctor. Many drugs can have adverse reactions when paired up with other medications.

It can also interact with macrolide antibiotics and quinidine in such a way that it causes changes to your heart’s rhythm. This can lead to more serious conditions like arrhythmia and heart attacks.

It is also not advisable for anyone with heart problems or liver disease to take the drug since it can worsen their condition. If you have any medical conditions for which you are receiving treatment or taking medication, then you should tell our doctor during your online consultation before taking Fluconazole.

Mild Side Effects

Dizziness, mild hair loss, nausea, vomiting and headaches are all possible, and most people will not experience extreme versions of these effects. If your symptoms worsen to the point where you need to take medication to deal with them, tell our doctor. It is possible that the medication you would use could interact with the drug in an unexpected or dangerous way, and you need to be aware of those interactions.

In most cases, doctors who prescribe this medication deem that the milder side effects listed above is not too severe when compared with the benefits to be gained through the use of this drug. If you believe that your side effects are too severe to warrant taking the medication, then let our doctor know.
