In cases where milder anti-fungal medication does not produce the desired results, women may be required to visit a doctor to receive prescription medication. Though there are several types of drugs and courses that may be prescribed, most doctors prescribe a single dose medication that is formulated specifically to treat severe infections. In fact, those suffering from chronic yeast infection, are typically given a standing prescription for such medication. However, it is important to remember that prescription drugs are more aggressive and self-medication with these is not a good idea at all; always confirm with a medical practitioner before taking any prescription medication. Be sure to provide your prescribing doctor with a list of any current medications or natural supplements you are taking to avoid contraindications.
