Common Side Effects of Fluconazole
Fluconazole may cause some side effects, including dizziness and seizures, so do not drive until you know how your body reacts to fluconazole.

More common side effects include a change in the way food tastes, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach pain. Let your doctor know if you have side effects that get worse or won't go away.

Your doctor may want to monitor you or your child closely when taking fluconazole and may use blood tests to look for changes. In some rare cases, fluconazole may harm the liver, so it's important to tell your doctor if you or your child has related symptoms, such as clay-colored stools, dark-colored urine, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, yellow eyes or skin, unusual tiredness or weakness, stomach pain, abdominal tenderness, swelling of the feet or lower legs, skin rash, or itching while taking fluconazole.

Fluconazole may also cause a serious kind of allergic reaction called anaphylaxis or skin problems. Get emergency help if you experience a rash, itching, hives, hoarseness, swelling of a body part, or trouble breathing or swallowing while taking fluconazole.

Tell your doctor immediately, or if an emergency call 911, if you have any of the following side effects while taking fluconazole:

  • Nausea, vomiting, seizures, or flulike symptoms
  • Extreme tiredness, unusual bruising or bleeding, pain in the upper right part of the stomach, or loss of appetite
  • Lack of energy
  • Irregular heartbeat or chest pain
  • Seizures
  • Dark urine, or yellowing of the eyes or skin
  • Redness, blistering, peeling, or loosening of the skin, including inside the mouth
Take fluconazole for as long as your doctor told you to, even if you start to feel better. If you stop taking fluconazole too soon, the infection won't go away. Store fluconazole at room temperature, away from water.

If you miss a dose of fluconazole, take it as soon as you remember, unless it's time for your next dose. In that case, skip the missed dose of fluconazole and resume your regular schedule.
