    Sorry to ask this question here because it sounds like "medical advice" but I don't feel it fully is. I was prescribed Diflucan and Nystatin for some time to use for a fungal infection from taking my antibiotics (Oral Thrush) however I finished the Diflucan some time ago, I had gotten all the necessary re fills from my pharmacy but I see no info as to the length of treatment prescribed for the Nystatin. I was just about done with the bottle and realized I don't have a re fill left. I don't see my doctor for some time now so I am not sure if I am supposed to be taking it longer or not. It has been at least 4 weeks now so I am assuming I took more then enough. Seeing as how the Diflucan prescription finished quite some time ago as well. Does anyone know the standard length of time Nystatin is usually prescribed?

    ps. I really wish I didn't have to take the diflucan because now that I think about it seemed majorly over kill.

    @Martial I don't have the answer for you, haven't been involved in this treatment. but I've been watching some interesting comments on a low dose naltrexone forum re candida, and passing them on to someone else. Maybe there's something in here that's useful for you. I'm just pasting it all in, it's comments back and forth. cheers, ahmo:hug:

    Oh wow gonna have to look into that, I am trying to kill off any candida issues I could be having now while also lowering the bacterial load I am dealing with. Lufenorun sounds like a pretty useful drug I could try talking to my doctor about, I don't know if I still have yeast issues but I think most people with chronic illness have it at least to some degree. Still have not gotten anything like IV antibiotics yet, lately I am starting to desire it less and less as a possibility for treatment. I do not want to short change myself but I feel I hear of too many people now that just got sicker or had no changes from the IV to make it worth while. It seems to help in about 40 percent of cases, maybe. On top of that Candida can be one of the hardest things to bring down once it goes systematically in someones body, often times more deadly then what I am currently dealing with. Thanks for the info Ahmo!

    Hi martial,
    Im not a "specialist" although I suffer from C overgrowth after antibiotics since many years.

    Didnt work : diflucan - probably the dose was too high for me / my liver and also distroyed a lot : 200 mg per day 5 days >> jaundice. Nistatin - rounds of 5 days didnt work also because it contains lactose - dont know. As far as I read is better to take nistatin like some weeks? But it also kill some bacteria or increase some wrong bacteria it seems - so creates imbalance also. Some people didnt have succes with diflucan. but got well with naturals oil of oregano and caprilic acid.

    Worked (i was very senzitive so low and slow): organic coconut oil - 3 ts per day (with food), 3 cloves of garlic per day(with food), marigold tea, probiotics acido and bifido (low dose for me), omega 3 oils plus colonics once a week for 4 weeks. guess its not compulsory if you have your own BM - i had not. I had this regimen for 4-5 weeks and then break it - and was back to square one.

    I dont know your case but later ive found i definitively needed adrenal support also which i had not. and also didnt know about digestive enzymes support. but im sure you are already aware of that

    Are any of you doing the Brewer protocol with the atomizer and edta/nystatin up the nose. This is where the microbes are constantly feeding the body. You have to kill it there to get better.
