The dose of fluconazole your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- The medical condition being treated
- Your age and weight (for children)
- Other medications you are taking
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

- Paranoid behavior.
If you happen to overdose on fluconazole, seek immediate medical attention.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
Usually, this is not an issue, since fluconazole is most often taken as a single dose. However, the medication is sometimes taken for several doses. If you forget to take your dose, take the missed one as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, simply skip the one you missed and continue with your regular schedule -- never take a double dose.
