How should I take fluconazole?

When taking fluconazole, follow your doctor’s directions exactly. Typically, this will be once daily. Take the right dose for as long as prescribed. You might start feeling better before the infection’s completely treated, but don’t stop taking the medicine without talking to your doctor. Fluconazole is available as a tablet, powder and an oral liquid. It’s usually taken once a day. How much you take depends on your condition.
