What should I watch for?
Visit your doctor for regular check ups. Tell your doctor or healthcare professional if your symptoms do not start to get better or if they get worse. Some fungal infections can take many weeks or months of treatment to cure.
If you get severe diarrhea or vomiting tell your doctor right away. You may not get your full dose of medicine if you are sick.
