Canesten Oral Fluconazole Capsule (1 Capsule) holds a licence to treat Thrush for patients between the ages of 16 - 60. Therefore, we would like to bring it to your attention that if your consultation states you are under the age of 16 or over the age of 60, then we have no other alternative other than to CANCEL your order.
Canesten Oral Fluconazole Capsule (1 Capsule): is an effective single dose treatment for vaginal thrush. It can also be used to treat men who are suffering from thrush on the penis. Swallow the capsule whole with a glass of water (with or without food).
What is thrush?
Thrush is an infection caused by a yeast called Candida. This yeast normally lives in your body quite happily without doing you any harm. But when the natural pH balance of your vagina is upset - which can easily happen - Candida can multiply. And that's when you may start to itch and develop thrush.
What are the symptoms?
The main symptom - and by far the most irritating - is the itching. You may also feel a burning soreness and this can be accompanied by a whitish odourless discharge.
Who gets thrush?
Don't worry or be embarrassed about having thrush, as thrush is much more common than you might think - 3 out of 4 women have it at some point in their lives, especially if they are under the age of 20 or pregnant, and it is commonly suffered around the time of a period.
Men are not immune. They can get thrush too, though only a few develop the rash and itchiness. Most male sufferers act as carriers, without actually having the symptoms. To help prevent re-infection, make sure your partner uses Canesten Thrush Cream as well as you.
How does the infection occur?
Normally, there is a delicate balance between bacteria and yeasts that live naturally within the vagina. However, this balance is easily upset by any of the following factors which could allow the yeasts to overgrow, leading to thrush infection.
Swallow the capsule whole with a glass of water (with or without food).
The active substance is Fluconazole at a strength of 150mg.
The other ingredients are Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Lactose Monohydrate, Magnesium Stearate, Maize Starch and Sodium Lauryl Sulphate. The capsule shell contains Brilliant Blue FCF (E133), Titanium Dioxide (E171) and Gelatine. The printing ink contains Shellac, Black Iron Oxide (E172) and Propylene Glycol.
Do not use if you are pregnant, trying for a baby or breast feeding. Consult your doctor or a pharmacist before use if you are taking any medication other than the contraceptive pill, if you are aged under 16 or over 60 or you have had more than two infections of vaginal thrush in the last six months. Always read the label.
