Pharmacology :

Fluconazole is a triazole group anti-fungus whose mechanism of action is by inhibiting the P450 cytochrome enzyme, blocking ergosterol synthesis.


Indication :

Fluconazole is indicated for the treatment:

  • Cryptococcal meningitis
  • Systemic Candidiasis including: candidemia, disseminated other forms of invasive candida infections (on the peritoneum, endocardium, lung and urinary tract)
  • Candidiasis oropharyngeal and esophageal
  • Acute reccurent vaginal candidiasis


Dosage :

The daily dose of Fluconazole should be based on the patient’s condition and the severity of the infection. Most cases of vaginal candidiasis respond to a single dose. Treatment for the type of infection requiring dose repetition should be given until clinical or laboratory parameters indicate that active yeast infection has disappeared. Lack of inadequate treatment can lead to a recurrence of active infection. AIDS sufferers and cryptococcal meningitis or recurrent oropharyngeal candidiasis, usually requiring maintenance therapy to prevent relapse.


Adult :

  • For cryptococcal meningitis: the usual dose of 400 mg on the first day is continued 200-400 mg, 1 times daily. The duration of treatment depends on the mycologic and clinical responses, but generally less than 6-8 weeks.
  • For the prevention of relapse of cryptococcal meningitis (especially in people with AIDS after receiving a series of initial therapy): 200 mg of Fluconazole daily for as long as needed.
  • For candidemia, disseminated candidiasis and other invasive candida infections: the usual dose of 400 mg on the first day and then 200 mg/day. Dosage may be increased to 400 mg/day depending on the clinical response. The duration of treatment also depends on the clinical response
  • For orpharyngeal candidiasis: the usual dose of 50 mg, once daily for 7-14 days. In severe immune compromised patients, the duration of administration may be prolonged if necessary
  • For other candida infections of the mucosa, such as esophagitis (except for vaginal candidiasis): the usual prevalent dose is 50 mg/day for 14-30 days. In difficult and unusual cases, the dose may be increased to 100 mg / day

Therefore, for life-threatening infections a larger dose is required. Doses up to 12 mg/kg body weight/day have been used in some children.
