Fluconazole 150mg – Your Best Way in Treating Fungal Infections

Fluconazole 150mg is a medication that is used in treating fungal infections of certain types.  Fluconazole 150mg treats fungal infection by killing the fungi itself.  This medication is used for a multitude of infections.  Additionally, fluconazole 150mg can be used in preventing fungal infection on people whose immune system is compromised.

Fungal infections are not always limited to the skin wherein you can treat them using antifungal creams.  Also, there are times that some skin infections cannot be treated using creams alone as some of the components of the fungus may have buried themselves already deep in your skin which is why the use of medications like fluconazole 150mg is necessary in order to fully purge them.

If you are using fluconazole 150mg, it is important that you keep this medicine for yourself and never share it with others.  Fluconazole 150mg is a prescription medication which means this has likely been prescribed to you.  Sharing the medication with others whose condition or allergic reaction has not been established can be particularly risky which is why it is highly suggested to keep your dosing of fluconazole 150mg to yourself.  Read more…

To jab or not to jab: confusion reigns over HPV

On September 24, Quebec joined the march of other Canadian provinces to provide free HPV vaccinations to schoolgirls. Almost immediately, women's health activists there due to safety concerns. Health Minister Philippe Couillard the voluntary program is safe. "We are not doing this just because there is a company with the vaccine on the market (or) ... because other provinces are doing it. We're doing it because it is in the interest of public health," he said.

Quebec's HPV drama echoes what's been happening across the country and around the world. A group of Canadian public health researchers published a commentary in the CMAJ voicing their concerns that we don't know enough about safety and efficacy of the jab in kids to rush through the vast immunization program we're seeing.

One of the authors, Dr Abby Lippman, : “I couldn’t understand why there was suddenly such a rush to do this when cervical cancer only kills about 400 people a year in Canada, and most of them are dying because of lack of treatment. I couldn’t see anything like the sort of evidence one would expect to support a decision like this.”

MDs on the frontlines have expressed concerned that, in light of the confusion, we should wait for more data (read Waterloo family doctor Dr Neil Arya's editorial on the subject ). On the other hand, an of physicians revealed that two thirds of Canadian MDs think we shouldn't wait if we can prevent cervical cancer.

Meanwhile, presented at the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy in Chicago showed that Gardasil appears to partially protect against 10 more HPV strains than was previously thought. These strains are responsible for 20% of cervical cancer lesions. The vaccine is currently indicated for strains 6, 11, 16 and 18.

One simply doesn't know what to think.

Nurse slain by MD ex inquest begins

Creepy. Obnoxious. Abusive.

That's how thoracic surgeon Dr Craig Pearce his former colleague Dr Marc Daniel (right), the anesthetist who stabbed his ex girlfriend Lori Dupont (below) to death at their workplace, Windsor's Hotel-Dieu Grace Hospital, in November 2005.

Dr Pearce is testifying at the coroner's inquest into Ms Dupon's death. Dr Daniel killed himself soon after the murder with an overdose of narcotics he is thought to have stolen from his own OR.

A picture of a toxic working atmosphere is emerging from the testimonies. Dr Pearce - who tried desperately to save Ms Dupont's life after finding her in a pool of blood in a recovery room - testified: "There are a number of obnoxious people who work in the OR. But there's obnoxious and there's abusive."

Nurses at the hospital contend Hotel-DieuGrace has a culture of "physician dominance" where abusive MDs like Dr Daniel are allowed to thrive.

"It was a tragic situation," Dr Pearce testified. "I and a lot of people did everything we could to try to save Lori, and we're sad that it didn't turn out in a different way."
