in my current condition, on antibotics for 12 days gave me a very bad yeast inf, I didn't notice it had expired. It was one pill still wrapped never opened. Any one have an experience with an expired diflucan? My doc's office is closed and pharmacy said call dr tomorrow am (probably ok... ) I had never take cephasporin 500 mg bid for 12 days, but had bad ear infections, sinus, and sore throat. I'll ask for diflucan with heavy antibiotic from now on. I've tried the "otc" monistat just is too messy takes too long. Thanks for any "good news".
I dont think taking the expired Diflucan will hurt you but it may not be as effective as it once was. Call your Dr in the AM and ask them if you should take another dose. If it was a really bad Candidal infection, you may need another dose anyway in a few days. You might also try taking some probiotics like Culturelle for a while. Usually if a vaginal Candidal (yeast) infection is severe, chances are it is throughout the intestinal tract too and probiotics will help you build the "good" bacterias back up to combat the Candida overgrowth.
