Hello, Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

You are taking Diflucan (antifungal) & Nitrofurantoin (antibiotic) medications for urinary infection (UTI). Smoking causes faster metabolism of drugs in liver as it is enzyme inducer. So less medicine in your body will be available to fight infection. So it may lead to treatment failure. So smoking in any form is not advisable. Wishing you best of health,
