 3  Candida muscle weakness, stomach aches, gastronomical issues, extreme hair loss!!!!!, If it wasn't for the extreme hair loss I would never think of discontinuing my use of this drug. I take it so often because it has even helped with my depression. At this point i do feel like I am addicted to this drug thats how good it works for me. At times it can make me feel a little lethargic; but I just feel extremely laid back and calm with no anxiety. Although, after using it for 6 months straight I am experiencing thinning hair and it is devastating . I am now so depressed because Diflucan has been beneficial to me in treating my ailments even colds and apathy; but the hair loss I cannot take. I have even gone to the point now of putting monistat on my scalp hoping that will decrease the shedding because I figure that if I have a history of candida infection then maybe I need to treat the scalp and this will work to combat the hair loss. Now I believe that I am having negative side effects from that, such as headaches and foggy thinking. It seems like I can't win for losing….but if you are planning on taking Diflucan for a short period of time I definitely recommend the drug. It is when you take it for long durations past 2 and 3 months that you will experience the hair loss. It can be such a miracle drug that it cleans your organs and can even help with weight loss; I find it to be an energy booster ; -- I just wish it didn't cause you to lose your hair!!!! ------ F 34 1 years

 1  Yeast infection 10 minutes after taking Diflucan my lips started to tingle and swell, the turned into blisters all over both lips and half way down my chin. I also took Diflucan a little over a month ago for the same reason and the same thing happened to my lips, and my eye also swelled up. I didn't put it together till it happend again this time. I have in the past taken Diflucan with no side effects at all so I don't know why all of a sudden I'm allergic to it. I have also developed a rash/hive under my breasts and have red sore bumps on a few of my fingers and wrists, but I'm not sure of its related to the Diflucan or not. M 32 1 days

 1  yeast infection lips burn and swell, red, itchy rash around mouth/chin/nose that dries out and peels. lips crack/bleed at the corners. rash lasts for about a week before healing. looks and feels horrible. I have taken Diflucan several times in the past without any side effects but in the past year, it has started to cause a reaction each time I take it. I didn't make the connection until now. I had thought I was having an allergic reaction to a cosmetic I was using but just connected the dots--- within 30 minutes of taking Diflucan, my lips burn and swell and I get a rash that goes around my mouth, my chin, some on my cheeks and nose. The rash is bright red, itchy, raised bumps and lasts about a week. The rash dries out and peels as part of the healing process and looks horrible each step of the way. All you want to do is hide. I will never take Diflucan, orally, again, and will, instead use vaginal creams. F 36 1 days

 5  Yeast infection No side effects except worry after reading some of these comments here. I think most of the negative comments are associated with allergies to this drug. If you are not allergic to it, then diflucan does what it's supposed to do: knock out the yeast infection. It relieved most of my symptoms In a couple of days after the first pill. Then I was prescribed one more three days later and the rest of the symptoms went away also. F 59 2 days

History
 3  FUNGAL OVERGROWTH FROM ANTIBIOTICS I felt dizzy flu like feeling and i had menustral cramps so bad cramping is a side effect of this medication. It made me feel foggy, like I had sleep deprivation By day two my liver was in pain it was pretty intense It was hard to tell if Diflucan is causing a die off or side effects but I finally decided it was side effects. Diflucan did work it did stop my skin from itching like crazy and it worked fast but the side effects were not worth it to me . I went straight to my Chinese medicine doctor for an herbal natural formula it may take a couple days longer to work, but it highly effective and has no side effects at all. F 45 7 days

 1  oral thrush stopped after 1 dose.! 5 hours after taking it, started feeling anxious/panicky, horrible headache, nauseaus, insomnia and inner tremors when trying to sleep. Next day felt like a horrible hangover. I have taken this before...about 7 years ago. Didn't feel a thing. A few years later it put me in the hospital hyperventilating, however at the time I didn't realize it was the diflucan. 1 year ago, gave me rapid heart rate. Now it did all this.... Am I allergic?? I really don't know. Not typical allergic reaction, just horrible reaction. Feels like a poison. Some people will say its the candida die off, but doctors don't support that theory. I will never take again, but now what do I do for yeast? Monistat cream raises my heart rate too. F 47 7 days

 1  Thrush Tingling of face, hands and legs. Also numbness in arems and legs. Episodes of rapid heart and breathing rate. Twitching of legs and facial area. Affected mood. Chills and loss of appetite and fatique at the on set of reaction. After taking one 150 mg pill, I began to have burning in lips and facial area. Symptoms began to grow, with severe fatigue, numbness is legs and arms. Rapid episodes of breathing after eating or moving around much. Obtained a steriod shot on 4th day of symptoms, which didn't seem to help. Benedryl everys 4/6 hours helped some. My husband missed work for a week caring for me. Throat swelled and finally facial twitching. Please be very cautious taking this medication. I thought twice I was going to die and the people at the ER couldn't believe that this was occuring 8 to 10 days after taking 1 pill of generic Diflucan !! F 36 1 days

 4  Yeast infection I have taken diflucan several times in the past 4-5 years. I have never noticed anything horrible for side effects such a palpitations or rash/hives. However I do get some utering cramping occasionally. I assume its because the ywast infection is pretty bad and the drug is working mightily to get rid of the yeast. I also had a small amount of fungus in my big right toe and it also cleared that up! So thought it was pretty cool it killed two birds with one stone! I sometimes have low back pain and on the first and second day, some white discharge. But again. I believe its the pill doing its job. I have auto immune disease so unfortunately I have to be on antibiotics quite a bit which causes the high amount of yeast infections I get. Sorry to hear so many bad stories. But for me, Diflucan/ diflucanazole works great!! F 33 1 days

 3  Vaginal Yeast Infection Hives, itching, redness, tingling lips, tingling hands, tingling feet, swollen lips. I have taken this medication several times before and it worked perfectly. The last 3 times I took Diflucan, I broke out in hives. At first, I couldn't figure out what was making me have an allergic reaction. Diflucan was the last product I thought broke me out since I've taken it before with no problems. On the third breakout, I determined that it was the Diflucan pill which caused the hives. During the first breakouts, all the doctors and nurses informed me that it was highly unlikely that it was the Diflucan but clearly it was. F 26 1 days

 3  Yeast infection Same side pain on right side, Hot flash like symptoms on my right side arm and leg. Orange urine after a week. Hi, I am the same one that had the SEVERE SIDE PAIN. I wanted to give some people an update. I apparently have recurrent yeast infections..... I wanted to let people know that Diflucan will clear up your yeast infection. (not amazingly)... but you have to take probiotics and adjust your diet after or it will most likely come back. So after my CT scan, about a week later my yeast infection symptoms came back (burning). I was hesitant, but my doc put me on a lower does of dilucan 100mg. I took 1, then 1 three days later, and she wanted me to take one once a week after that for 6 months..... So after that I took one 6 days later and then another three days later since I was still having the burning and it didn't appear to be working and she said it was ok..... Before and now I experience weird right arm and leg warm sensations on the meds, occasional orange urine and of corse the side pain came back...... not as bad though. I had all this before on the pill.... I dont understand since I was on a lower does and took it less often...... I told my doctor I dont want to take Diflucan anymore. Obviously I dont react well to it. Iam going to try more natural ways to clear it up. If you have a yeast infection I recommend trying cream first before the pill. F 22 2 weeks

 3  Yeast Infection Severe right side pain in my lower back and liver region! SO MUCH PAIN! I have a yeast infection for about a month. I took 1 does of diflucan 150mg at the End of january with no reaction to the product, but it did not clear up my problem. A month later I got tested and still had yeast. My doctor recommend that I try one 150mg does every 3 days for 3 doses. I was like thats fine since I had no reactions and it would only be about a week and Iam desperate. After the first 3 days everything was fine, then i took the second does. Heres where the problem started. Next day started to get right side pain, nothing bad but it was noticeable. It continued to get worse but I thought I sprained a mussel until I took the 3rd does three days later...... THE PAIN GOT WORSE TO THE POINT 800MG OF IBUPROFEN DID NOT WORK. IT HURT SO BAD!!! I ended up in urgent care for 12 hours to get a CT to make sure i didnt have a ovarian cyst or my appendix burst. All said it was not the pill. They sent me home since could not find anything but the pain was so bad i missed school. luckily after that hell I came home and it slowly got better after the drug was complexly out of my system which is why Iam convinced. I have never had this happen before until the pill. BEWARE IF YOUR 110 pounds. It and my liver did not work and I was not even on a long term use.... (ps it stopped the burning in my vaginal region but did not kill all my yeast). I will never take that much again. F 22 9 days

 4  Yeast Infection So far, I just had one day of bad gas. I had stomach pain at the start, and this medication made it go away. Before taking this drug, I had been taking 2,000 mg of caprylic acid daily for a month. I had a bad reaction to that treatment at first--severe diarrhea and vomiting, but it was probably the Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction because I got past this after a couple of days. I'm supposed to remain at this diflucan dose for 4 weeks and then get my liver function tested. If all is well, I'm supposed to stay on Diflucan for a total of 6 weeks. I'll be reporting back.

 4  Valley Feaver dizzyness, sweating, tightness in chest and stomach - somewhat similar to the feeling you get after eating a lot of food. Diflucan definitely helped get the fungus out of my lung. Was diagnosed with pneumonia 2 times over the course of 2 years before it was found that fungus has been growing in there, so the infection was pretty severe. After a month, I had no more pain. Wheezing went away after 2 months. I had no side effects for the first 3 months. During the 4th month, side effects got really bad to the point where I had to wait until I had a few hours after taking it where I could relax under a fan. M 26 6 months

 1  Yeast Infection Severe hives, angioedema (swollen eyes, lips, and forehead), swollen glands, difficulty breathing. The day after the 1st day of a 2 day dose, I developed a small case of hives that I thought was a food allergy. However, within hours, I intensely broke out into hives, and my face began to swell. I did not take the Diflucan on the second (and the last day of the prescription) because I was taking Benedryl, still unaware of the cause of my hives, but not wanting to mix drugs. I woke up to angioedema, to the point where I could hardly see, my eyes and lips were horribly inflamed and the hives rash was unlike the kinds I get from food allergies. The hives were on my legs, torso, arms, knees, back, and feet. My hands and feet felt swollen (although they looked normal) and I could have sworn that there were hives on my palms and the bottoms of my feet (even though I couldn't clearly see anything). Since the hives were severe, I refrained from hot baths, applied ointment, drank water, and tried to ease the symptoms with Benedryl. The only time I felt good was when I was asleep, but the symptoms would wake me up at times and I struggled to get rid of the burning sensation. After the 4th day, the sweeling in my face subsided, but the hives became aggressive, now covering my forehead, ears, scalp, neck, shoulders, torso, underarms, trunk, buttocks, legs, knees, and the tops of my feet. The rash was also much larger and more painful than the hives I'm used to experiencing. It was then that I realized it wasn't a food allergy (which typically lasts a few hours up to a day F 37 1 days

 3  Vaginal Yeast Infection Took the medicine for 7 days in February, got a nasty cold sore. Took 1, 150mg tablet in early June, no cold sore but it didn't cure the infection. Took another dose of 100mg for 7 days, cold sore again. Dr said it's "not common" but it sounds like people can develop these symptoms. The last time around they tested me for HIV (I'm thinking, so it's more likely that I have HIV than the medication is causing this?). I was Negative. they want me to test again in 2 weeks.

 3  Yeast Infection I took Diflucan a few months back and woke up in the middle of the night because the soles of my feet were extremely itchy and my lips were itchy and swollen. Coincidentally, that day I used a new face wash and lip balm, and had my carpets cleaned so I thought it was one of those things that I was reacting to. I had previously taken Diflucan without issue so didn't think twice about it being the cause. My feet were itchy and tingly for days. Fast forward to tonight -- I took another dose to treat a YI (6 months after the first reaction). I am now experiencing itchy lips and have put two and two together and have realized that I have an allergy to this med. I took a Benadryl so hopefully it will prevent the itchy foot reaction.

 5  vaginal yeast infection Within a few hours of taking the first dose I developed these strange little bumps on my face and arms and felt a little lightheaded and breathless. I don't know if it was hives or not but I took an antihistamine and felt better. They have since cleared up. Also, I've had a bad taste in my mouth. Food has tasted a little strange but I'll take that over the awful yeast infection any day! I had a bad yeast infection and was very uncomfortable with lots if itching and soreness. I had taken Diflucan before so I knew it would alleviate the symptoms quickly with no mess. I was prescribed 2 150 mg pills. I took the first on day one and the second three days later, today. I know my body is still clearing the yeast infection but my symptoms have already dramatically improved. The itching was reduced within a few hours, and each day I have noticed improvement.

 2  Vaginal yeast infection I was supposed to take the pill once a day for 14 days, but on day 7 I broke out in hives on my abdomen, on day 8 I developed a rash on my face, and on day 9 the sunshine through my car window hurt the skin on my face like a sunburn, and I began to wheeze, so I stopped taking it on day 10 as I put my symptoms down to the diflucan. I read everyone's comments here, and I can't believe how prevalent the negative side effects are. I will use this site to check on other prescribed drugs before taking them! I pray these symptoms will go away soon,cand I caution others who may think taking it for a longer term will improve their results. F 52 10 days

 1  Oral Thrush severe hives, migraines, blurred vision, bruised/itchy skin, swollen glands, blisters on tongue, chapped/peeling/burning lips, burning sensation all over body, unsteady heartbeat, horrible fatigue, feeling unbalanced physically and emotionally, can't even begin to list it all, TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE! I felt fine when taking my 10 day (twice daily) round of Fluconazole(the generic Diflucan) but the day after I was finished I started feeling as if I was coming down with the flu and developed hives on my stomach and back. I figured I was having an allergic reaction to something in my clothing/in the air/ etc so I took some Benadryl and went to bed. The next day the hives had spread to my legs, tops of my feet, arms, chest and Benedryl didn't seem to be helping. By the next day it had spread up my neck to my face, ears, scalp, and mouth and started to resemble a severe sunburn that itched and burned. My tongue developed blisters and felt like it was burning. My lips were chapped and peeling and chapstick offered no relief. Then the headaches and the tickle feeling/swelling in the back of my throat began. I now have a cough because of the tickle that isn't helped by drinking water or medicine etc. At one point I thought my airway might close up. Now 95% of my body is covered in a burning/itching/bright red rash. Unfortunately, this all started on a weekend and my doctor has been straight booked so I will finally get to see her first thing tomorrow. I'm concerned she is going to brush me off but I know this is from the Diflucan. This is my first and last time taking this medication. I rarely take meds for anything but recently had my wisdom teeth pulled and had to take an antibiotic to keep from getting any infection which caused me to have oral thrush and a vaginal yeast infec F 27 10 days

 1  Oral Thrush Sores inside mouth, tongue and lips. My problem started with being prescribed Cephalexin to prevent possible infection on a cyst removal in October. Needless to say Cephalexin caused problems with the healing process. I was taken off this drug and the incision healed. In November came down with a sinus infection was put on Amoxicillin, next thing I know I have oral thrush. Dr. puts me on Fluconazole 100 mg for ten days. Developed cold sores, dry lips, sore tongue (ulcers) on tip. Please think twice about any prescribed medicine your Dr. gives you. There all toxins and they can play havoc on your system. M 61 10 days

 4  Oral Thrush Headache and some stomach upset, but I know it's because this drug is hard on the liver. To the person who recently posted that they have chronic yeast problems... if you take birth control pills, stop because that can make yeast infections keep coming back. Also, if you have amalagam (silver) dental fillings, get them replaced with white fillings because the mercury in the silver ones compromises the immune system. Chronic yeast is always caused by a compromised immune system. I have the same problem. I will be getting my amalagam fillings removed soon. F 42 1 days

 2  Precaution from Antibiotics In the past this has always worked effectively for me. However, this time, my doctor gave me bactrim and diflucan together. I was to take one when I started the antibiotics and the second when I finished. The first time I took it with the bactrim, My mouth felt tingling and throbbing. I could actually feel my blood pressure in my mouth. I felt pricklyna all over my body including my vaginal area. I kept taking the bactrim but with each dose, I felt shaky and my blood pressure rased so I thought I was allergic to the bactrim. I developed a huge blister on the roof of my mouth which hurt so bad, I could not eat or drink anything. After I stopped taking the bactrim, I forgot to take the last diflucan so, a few days later, I took it and the same thing happened. My mouth throbbed, I developed a blister over the entire roof of my mouth, and now, I cannot eat or drink anything from the pain! It hurts so bad. I will not take either of them again. I think they both caused some kind of reaction. F 38 1 days

 1  chronic yeast It made the yeast rise even more. I have been experiencing it for 3 years and no cure. I have also been experiencing bv from time to time and the yeast won't go away. Sometimes I don't experience it. Could it be possible that I could be immune to diflucan? F 29 2 days

 3  Recurrent Yeast Infection I had 3 or 4 yeast infections in the last 12 months. My doctor gave this to me because the last treatment kit didn't completely get rid of the infection. I took this with my lunch yesterday and felt fine until dinner time. I cooked my dinner and started to eat it. Halfway through I couldn't stand the smell or taste of it. This morning I thought I was going to throw up after just a small sip of my coffee. I broke out in a sweat and felt dizzy. I didn't throw up but my stomach still feels funny. I did have some vaginal itching overnight. So far it has worked othere than the nausea, slight dizziness, and breaking out in a sweat. F 24 1 days

 1  yeast infection I recently had a minor surgery and was given antibotics. I incurred a nasty yeast infection from it and called my dr. for the diflucan. I know from taking in the past that it has caused a cold sore, however, my lip starting itching and burning less than an hour after taking the diflucan this time. A few years ago I suffered from recurring yeast infections and couldn't figure out why I was all of a sudden having painful and huge cold sore breakouts. It always appears in the same spot so I thought I caught this cold sore from someone else. I then realized it was from the diflucan and will NEVER take this pill again! I read all of the other comments and was shocked to see I am not the only one suffering from side effects of this medication. Some miracle pill. I remember the first time I ever took it I had no side effects and it worked great. But, the more I took it, now looking back this is the cause of this cold sore and am very upset that a medicine to "heal" you can cause another medical and embarrassing issue to deal with for weeks! Oh the burning and itching in both my lip and genital area is crazy! I hope others will choose NOT to take this "medicine". F 34 1 days
