I have been taking Biaxin since June 3/08. From January/08 to June/08, while on Zithromax + Mepron, I got about seven yeast infections.
I spoke to my doctor about the fact that the vaginal yeast infections kept returning, despite repeated treatments with Over-The-Counter cream/ovules. I also take refrigerated probiotics which I buy at the Health Food Store.
In late June, my doctor gave me an Rx for Diflucan, 150 mg daily for seven days. This treatment worked very well, until just last week when I got another yeast infection which wouldn't resolve despite treatment. Today, my doctor wrote me another Rx for Diflucan, 150 mg (one tablet) once daily for seven days.
Here is what www.drugs.com had to say about mixing Biaxin w/ Diflucan:
"Fluconazole may increase plasma concentrations of clarithromycin when coadministered. The mechanism of action is unknown. The clinical significance of the elevation appears to be minimal in healthy subjects. Observation for clarithromycin adverse effects is recommended if these drugs are given together."

Take good care,
