Women Home > Diflucan Dosage
The standard dose of Diflucan for treating vaginal yeast infections is 150 mg. For thrush, the recommended dosage is 200 mg on the first day, followed by 100 mg once daily for two to three weeks. Guidelines for the treatment of other Candida infections have not been clearly established. People undergoing bone marrow transplantation may take 400 mg daily to prevent fungal infections.
The dose of Diflucan® (fluconazole) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- The medical condition being treated
- Your age and weight (for children)
- Other medications you are taking
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust this amount unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
This medication is available in the following strengths and forms:
- Diflucan 50 mg tablets
- Diflucan 100 mg tablets
- Diflucan 150 mg tablets
- Diflucan 200 mg tablets
- Diflucan powder for oral suspension (which is mixed by a pharmacist to a concentration of 10 or 40 mg per mL, depending on the strength)
- Diflucan 2 mg per mL injection (available in various package sizes).
Interestingly, the recommended dosages are the same for the oral forms and the injectable forms, since the medication is absorbed well when taken by mouth.
