Afs 3 Kit is a combination of three medicines: Fluconazole, Azithromycin and Secnidazole. Fluconazole is an antifungal which works by preventing the formation of the fungal protective covering which is essential for the survival of the fungi in the human body. Azithromycin is an antibiotic which stops bacterial growth by inhibiting synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Secnidazole is also an antibiotic which kills the bacteria and other microorganisms that cause infections by damaging the DNA. Together, they treat your infection effectively.
Interaction with alcohol is unknown. Please consult your doctor.
