Is it safe to take AZO yeast after taking Fluconazole for yeast infection?

I just finished my last dose of fluconazole for a yeast infection, is it safe to be taking AZO yeast daily or will that just interrupt with fluconazole? I don't really have symptoms anymore but would like to ensure that the yeast infection goes away and help prevent another one.

Hi,

Welcome to HCM.

I understand your concern regarding interactions between flucan and azo yeast. I would suggest you complete your fluconazole dose and then start with any other therapy. Yeast infection can also be prevented by maintaining personal hygiene and keeping the prone areas clean and dry. Unnecessary therapy without any symptoms is not recommended.
Thanks.
