diflucan pill for yeast infections...side effects?!?!
question ladies...i took my diflucan pill on monday, but i wanted to know is a white discharge a side effect of the pill? i have taking diflucan multiple times before, but i never bothered those times to actually look and see what was going on down there. this time i did and it seems like a white discharge is coming out...someone told me that was the yeast mixing w/the medicine coming out. is that true?

Diflucan is a powerful drugs, with several disturbing side effects.

Rather than provide you with a filtered version of facts I suggest you go to the government database "Pubmed" (do a google search) and
in the database type in "Diflucan" and "side Effects".

Sounds like a yeast infection discharge to me; this is NO side effect from the medication in my opinion.

As you see no discharge, it would be safe to say the infection is all clear.  

When did you take the pill?

Well, you possibly might need another round.  Call the physician monday and see if they can call another prescription into your pharmacy.  The infection should be completely cleared by now.  Sounds like a second dose should do it.  

REFRAIN from sex, wearing tight pants or panties, do NOT douche.

Avoid baths if you can; showers would be better until this infection clears.
