Were you looking for information about Fluconazole? Fluconizole is a common misspelling of fluconazole.
 
Fluconazole (Diflucan®) is a prescription drug approved to treat various types of fungal infections (such as vaginal yeast infections and thrush) and to prevent yeast infections in people undergoing bone marrow transplantations. This medication is an "azole" antifungal that works by inhibiting an enzyme that is used by fungal cells to make ergosterol, an important component of the fungal cell membrane. Unlike most other yeast infection medications, fluconazole is not used vaginally; instead, it comes in the form of oral tablets, oral liquid, and an injection.
