can famciclovir and diflucan be taken at same time

CAN FAMICICOVIR AND DIFLUCAN BE TAKEN AT THE SAME TIME ## Hello, Fred! How are you? I didn't find any interactions or problems listed between these two medications, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. Famciclovir is listed by the FDA as being most commonly used to prevent herpes outbreaks. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headaches and mild fever. Diflucan is an antifungal medication and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, headache and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

Round Blue Pill 48 Criss Cross

Its a little blue pill round has a 48 and a weird symbol above it kinda looks like a E and the other side it has a criss cross like 4 sections found in my kids pants. ## The closest match (I could find) with that similar description is famciclovir, but this drug is usually white. It is a small, round pill with 48 on one side and "X" on the other. Famciclovir - an antiviral used to treat herpes and symptoms associated with the disease. The link should bring you to a picture.
