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…

Federal jokesters mine H1N1 flu for new material

Thanks to Maclean's reporter Aaron Wherry for subjecting himself to Question Period in the House of Commons yesterday so the rest of us didn't have to. He asks that we take note of one "particularly edifying exchange":

Ms. Judy Wasylycia-Leis (Winnipeg North, NDP): Mr. Speaker, the A (H1N1) flu is expected to hit even harder in October. Some 74 people have already died from this flu virus. We need to act now. The minister plans to reveal her priority list for the flu vaccine a little later this week, but we want to know now whether first nations and Inuit people are on that list, since they are at a much greater risk. My question is very simple. Can the minister tell us whether aboriginal people are on the government's list of priorities?

Hon. Leona Aglukkaq (Minister of Health, CPC): Mr. Speaker, I want to be very clear that every Canadian who wants to receive the vaccine will receive it. The vaccine rollout is currently being developed. A special advisory committee made up of chief medical officers is working on that and I expect that vaccine rollout document to be released some time this week. We are working with the provinces and territories to ensure that all Canadians who want to receive the vaccine will be able to do so.

Ms. Judy Wasylycia-Leis (Winnipeg North, NDP): Mr. Speaker, does the minister realize that “A (H1N1)” is not a postal code? We have a serious problem on our hands. At the symposium in Winnipeg two weeks ago, leading epidemiologists in this country said that first nations and Inuit people are 25 times more likely to contract H1N1. I ask you, Mr. Speaker, is the government going to stop the bureaucratese and this dilly-dallying with respect to first nations and Inuit people and act now?

Hon. Leona Aglukkaq (Minister of Health, CPC): Mr. Speaker, the only party that thinks H1N1 is a postal code is that party. Our goal is to ensure the balance between the needs and the speed of the timing of the vaccine. We are gathering as much information as we can on the vaccine to ensure that it is safe and effective for all Canadians. Thanks to the actions of Health Canada, we will be able to approve that vaccine quickly and all Canadians who want to receive the vaccine will be able to do so.
Just in case that conversation got you wondering, we pay Members of Parliament a base salary of $157,731 a year. Ms Wasylycia-Leis, as vice-chair of the Standing Committee on Health, is entitled to an additional $5,684. Ms Aglukkaq gets an extra $75,516 for her efforts as a cabinet minister, plus a $2,122 car allowance.

When children misbehave, their parents usually take away their allowance, don't they? Sometimes Question Period makes you think the inmates are running the daycare, so to speak.

    What's in a word?

    I like this phrase " out of the fullness of the heart....... the mouth speaks"

    ?inmates...... in a ?

    ?rollout?..... or "role call"?

    Does this phrase apply in any situation where the " good cop/bad cop" dance is performed ( like the legislature as a "?truth wrenching tool")?

    When you watch a dance long enough it is the moves that intrigue, not the dancers

    ...and a skilled eye can recognize the provocative on-and-off beat of the "tango"....

    Wonder if they will discuss the "body bag" conundrum today?....... wonder if Waterloo region will bring back their 100 body bags to the steps of the legislature?........

    ....like I said..." out of the fullness of the heart"....

    "every Canadian who wants to receive the vaccine will receive it" - I don't buy it.

    I do agree with the sentiment that Wasylycia-Leis expressed. Let's get the heck on with it and lets stop it with the second-rate treatment of our aboriginal communities. There are a lot of reasons they are at increased risk for morbidity and mortality from the flu, and it sure doesn't feel good to provide sub-par care.

    I put my rant about the Canadian perspective on the flu on the 'ole blog.

    Especially check out the link to Kevin Patterson's Globe and Mail article - painful reality.
