    Diflucan is listed on the website as an antifungal, but it’s also listed as an antibiotic. I’m a bit confused…if it’s an antibiotic, then shouldn’t it be avoided? I’ve taken Diflucan many times for yeast infections and I’m wondering if I should be concerned, but since it’s listed as an antifungal, I’m not sure.

    Where did you read Diflucan is an antibiotic ?? Do you mean an antibacterial ??

    It isn’t an antibacterial but an antifungal.

    Biotic means alive. Candida is an alive microbe. Diflucan can be called an antibiotic but not antibacterial.
