Drug Interactions of Fluconazole 50, 100, 150, 200 mg Tablets (Diflucan)

Unlike itraconazole and ketoconazole, absorption of fluconazole is not reduced if it is given together with drugs that reduce gastric acid secretion. Concomitant administration of fluconazole and rifampicin has resulted in a modest reduction in blood levels of the antifungal agent. The effect is less marked than with itraconazole or ketoconazole and is due to induction of P-450 cytochrome oxidases by rifampicin with resulting enhanced hepatic metabolism of the azole drug. Like rifampicin, phenytoin undergoes cytochrome P-450-mediated hepatic metabolism and its concomitant administration with fluconazole may reduce its clearance.
