Can monastat 7 cause cdiff

Postby arshes85 » Fri Mar 11, 2016 5:16 pm

I know this may be a silly question but now a days it seems like everything can cause it and im going crazy! I think i have a yeast infection but scared to take diflucan. Would monastat 7 cause cdiff or no?

no silly questions in this crazy c diff world we are in! I am second guessing about to to a z pack….:-(
Anyway I have asked my gastro about difucan and she was fine w/it. I had no problems though some folks do have intestinal discomfort because of- I would imagine monostat would be fine- though it burns!

So diflucan doesnt cause cdiff? I have a scrpit for that but terrified i will get cdiff from taking it! Right now i cant afford to have it. I have a medically needy daughter who is not doing so good so its a bit rough right now

I have taken Diflucan post CDIFF several times with no issues. Monistat is an OTC cream and I am not aware if it causing any risk of CDIFF.
I am not sure where you are in your treatment, but it is always best to check with your MD, especially Post CDIFF.
Hope things clear up soon!

Diflucan doesn't cause cdiff and its not a antibiotic. That med is to treat yeast infection only. You will be fine.
