Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I am Dr Uzair.
I am reviewing your post and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 11 months ago.

Yes, She can take daflon 500 mg and the dose varies from 2 tablets per day in chronic hemorrhoids and in acute hemorrhoidal attack, the dosage is 6 tablets daily for 4 days, followed by 4 tablets daily over the next 3 days.

Hope this helps.

How will she know if its chronic or acute? Is it ok too take on an empty stomach how many tablets can be taken in one sitting and how long inbetween each dose can they be taken?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 11 months ago.

If she was suffering from the disease for more than 3 weeks then it is chronic but if it came all of a sudden then it is called acute. She can take on empty stomach and she can take one tablet in morning and one in evening or as advised by her doctor.

Hope this helps.

Also while on the doxycyline she encounters thrush, whenever she takes antibiotics she gets thrush its in her family as this happens to her mother, she has cleared it up with a course of canestine cream and fluconazole 150mg oral tablet about a week ago and she fears it may return again due to the doxycyline is that the case or will it stay dorment?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 11 months ago.

It would stay dormant as you had recent course of antifungal. Nothing to worry about.
