Placebo Works Better than Diflucan?

Diflucan is a medication used to treat infections caused by fungus, which can invade any part of the body including the mouth, throat, esophagus, lungs, bladder, genital area, and the blood.

Recently, the Annals of Internal Medicine published a study that shows Diflucan (fluconazole) is less effective than a placebo pill! In fact, only 36% of patients receiving the drug showed successful outcomes after six weeks… while 38% of patients receiving the placebo showed the same successful outcomes.
