- Uceris and oral thrush
Took Uceris for the last three weeks. Oral thrush set in after the first 10 days. I put up with it for two additional weeks taking prescription mouth wash and then finally was prescribed fluconazole orsl pill 200mg three days. I stoped taking Uceris and still have the oral thrush. How long can this last?

21 year old male with Down syndrome went to ER for flu related thrush and breathing difficulties. Diagnosed with pneumonia and high blood sugar. Admitted to hospital for 5 days. Treated with albuterol sulfate and atrovent along with Lantis and Metformin for blood sugars. Blood sugar seems to be leveling off now but will blood sugar return to normal?
