    Fluconazole through PEG

    Is it okay to put it through my PEG? Been prescribed for my ongoing battle with oral thrush.

    Check with the pharmacist but I don't see why not. (I am nearly sure I had it through my tube a long time ago, but not 100%)

    If it's the liquid, then it's straightforward, and the caps aren't slow release, nor does it expressly say not to open the caps.

    The flucoanazole should clear it up.

    Good luck. xx

      It's a suspension, I'm just very cautious.

        No problem then. I always flush well after suspensions, they're often granular and/or sticky.
