Fluconazole is a single dose antifungal tablet also known under the brand name Diflucan. The advantage of using tablets is that they stop any internal yeast infection, which a cream or pessary may not treat. Oral tablet treatment may therefore be more effective than pessaries and creams and is also easier to use.
