Diflucan is an antifungal medication, generically known as Fluconazole. Diflucan is manufactured by Pfizer Inc., and it is also sold as Trican. It is used to treat a number of fungal infections that other antifungals cannot treat, such as Candidiasis, tinea corporis, tinea cruris, tinea pedis, crypotcoccal meningitis, and onychomycosis. It is also used as a first-line for the following indications: coccidiodomycosis, crytococcosis, histoplasmosis, and prophylaxis of candidiasis. Unfortunately, Diflucan has some very serious side effects that include liver damage and serious birth defects.
Women who are pregnant or who think that they might become pregnant should be very careful about taking Diflucan. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued warnings about Diflucan's potentially harmful effects on fetuses. The following kinds of birth defects have been reported by mothers who have had children with Diflucan birth defects:
- Joint deformities
- Long Bones
- Thin Ribs
- Congenital Heart Disease
- Bowed Thigh Bones
- Abnormal head shape
Diflucan has been upgraded from a Category C to a Category D drug because of positive evidence of human birth defects. Although there might be times when Diflucan is the only chance a pregnant woman might have, generally, it is not recommended that pregnant women take this drug. Birth defects usually only occur when very high doses of this drug are administered.
There are other Diflucan adverse effects that might happen. Some of these include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS)
- Torsades de pointes
- Hepatic failure
- Prolonged QT interval
- Blood Dyscrasias
Most of these side effects are fortunately quite rare. However, if you or a loved one has been injured by Diflucan side effects, you might be entitled to compensation. Furthermore, birth defects are the most common source of Diflucan litigation.
