Interactions have been reported when Fluconazole is given with some anticoagulants, amphotericin B, rifampin, phenytoin, cyclosporine, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and steroids.
Pets who are pregnant and/or lactating or who suffer from liver disease should not be given Fluconazole. Caution should also be used when giving this medication to pets with kidney disease.
This drug is FDA-approved for human use. However, it is common practice for veterinarians to prescribe such drugs for use in dogs and cats.
