Diflucan injection is used to treat serious fungal or yeast infections, such as vaginal candidiasis, oropharyngeal candidiasis (thrush, oral thrush), esophageal candidiasis (candida esophagitis), other candida infections (including urinary tract infections, peritonitis [inflammation of the lining of the abdomen or stomach], and infections that may occur in different parts of the body), or fungal (cryptococcal) meningitis. Diflucan works by killing the fungus or yeast, or preventing its growth. Diflucan injection is also used to prevent candidiasis in patients having bone marrow transplants, who receive cancer or radiation treatment. Diflucan is to be given only by or under the direct supervision of a doctor. An indication is a term used for the list of condition or symptom or illness for which the medicine is prescribed or used by the patient. For example, acetaminophen or paracetamol is used for fever by the patient, or the doctor prescribes it for a headache or body pains.
