DetailsCanesten Oral Fluconazole Capsule is an effective single dose treatment for vaginal thrush. Canesten oral capsules can also be used to treat men who are suffering from thrush infection of the penis. Swallow the capsule whole with a glass of water (with or without food). Thrush is an infection caused by a yeast called Candida which normally lives in your body quite happily without doing you any harm. Normally, there is a delicate balance between bacteria and yeasts that live naturally within the vagina. When the natural pH balance of your vagina is upset - which can easily happen due hormonal changes, poor health, antibiotics, perfumed toiletries and tight clothing - Candida can multiply. This is when you may start to develop symptoms of thrush. In men, Candida can also cause thrush or balanitis (inflammation of the end of the penis) often contracted from an infected partner.
IngredientsActive ingredient: Fluconazole 150 mg in each capsule.
Other ingredients: lactose monohydrate, maize starch, colloidal silicon dioxide, sodium lauryl sulfate. Capsule shells contain: brilliant blue FCF (E133), titanium dioxide (E171), gelatin, shellac, black iron oxide (E172), propylene glycol.
The full course of treatment consists of a single Canesten Oral Capsule. The capsule is to treat thrush and should be swallowed whole with a glass of water (with or without food). The symptoms of thrush should disappear within two days of treatment.
