    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 5 g Daily
Advice & Tips: Due to the fact, the rash was over 40% of my body. It did take time also 3 1/2 pounds of this medication before it totally cleared up. Now I also make sure I take FLUCONAZOLE 150 MG once a month. I suppect with this being winter time is especially helpful as well. I will probably see a difference in the summertime. The cost would increase to 25.OO if I needed more than the insurance company felt I was getting too much in a short period of time. However, Now 1 pound will last me a couple of months.
Cost: < $25 monthly
