Taking Fluconazole When On Antibiotics

Many women think about taking Fluconazole when they are taking antibiotics because they think they the fluconazole will repair the damage that the antibiotics have done. This is not what happens. All that will happen is you’ll just alleviate the symptoms of the infection that is caused by the antibiotics.

Recurrent yeast infections

Most women that are looking to see if this will work have already suffered from a yeast infection after taking antibiotics in the past. And if this is happening then there is something wrong with the sufferers natural defenses, and it shouldn’t be happening. No one should be getting a fungal infection after taking antibiotics, and you definitely shouldn’t be relying on one drug to mask the side effects of another one. You have to stop this at the cause otherwise you’ll be taking more and more drugs to combat the side effects of the last lot you took.

Taking Fluconazole will only kill the fungus. It will not in any way strengthen your body’s natural defenses so that you don’t keep on getting yeast infections when you’re taking antibiotics. You need to strengthen your body’s natural defenses. And when you have done that then you won’t need to take any more anti fungal drugs when you take another course of antibiotics.

If you strengthen your body’s natural defenses well enough then you could put your body in a condition where it doesn’t need to keep on taking antibiotics either. Your body could gain the ability to deal with it on its own. But that will depend on what you need to take the antibiotics for. :)

Strengthening your body’s natural defenses

You need to start taking more care of you internal health. You have good bacteria in your body that looks after you, but that is low in numbers at the moment. That’s why you’re getting a yeast infection when you take antibiotics. Because they are killing off what little good bacteria you have left. And then the naturally occurring Candida is growing in numbers and mutating into an aggressive fungus.

Eating more live yogurts or taking a probiotic supplement will help you replenish the good bacteria in your body. You will then have the internal strength needed to prevent yeast infections and all other types of infections that you may be suffering from. You will no longer need to rely on Fluconazole when you take another course of antibiotics.
