Dr. prescribed Fluconzole 150mg 1 x week for 6 weeks. This seems low to me. Should it be a higher dose and daily? I have taken it one time and it has not lessened my symptoms at all which are making me crazy! I am very miserable as this has been going on for 7 weeks while I had a mammogram, ultrasound, then the biopsy, then back to doctor for treatment.
Fluconazole 150mg is actually the highest dose available, and once-a-week dosing also sounds appropriate. Consider requesting a prescription for a anti-fungal cream or powder to apply directly to your breasts. Nystatin powder is a product used widely for these types of infections.
