    The crowd over at Curezone's candida forum have lots of comments about it, many from about 6 years ago (I think that's when lufenuron first became more discussed there). It didn't cure most of the people on that forum who tried it, although there may have been a few who got well from it.

    I think somewhere I read that people who combine it with other antifungals get better results.

    Funny. I was just looking at this and didn't get any responses to a similar query last month.

    Anyway, it's cheap enough and seems pretty benign overall so I'll give it a shot. I plan to take it along with Diflucan.

    I took Diflucan alone for a month after starting LDN flared yeast very badly. It worked well enough but symptoms returned within 5 days of stopping it so obviously it wasn't a cure. I'm not sure LDN will be worth this candida problem!

    I have used Lufenuron and plan on using it again.

    I was unsure of whether a subtle but unusually positive change in my health a few weeks later had anything to do with it or not because there are always variables and the change was not immediate. I can say that I felt no side effects of any kind.

    Unfortunately, I had some surgeries the next 2 months that knocked me back to worse than pre-Lufenuron condition, where it's remained. I am anticipating more surgeries - and antibiotics, so I don't plan to use it for awhile, but because of my previous experience and the possibility of the Lufenuron having been responsible, I will not hesitate using it again.

    I am also interested in the Sanum therapies for Candida after reading another thread you had started, but have not had a chance to look into it more or find sources for obtaining products.

    I see that @Ema said she was taking it with Diflucan and I'm wondering why she thought that was necessary.

    Any more people have tried it since then? Is it efficient?

    I have tried it and took it before taking Nystatin. Didn't have any major nasty side effects from it and the Nystatin was worse (lot of nausea) but I think it made the Nystatin more potent which was good because I made an improvement on the Nystatin and energy went up. Only thing that did happen after taking the Lufenuron was I developed a temporary hay fever type symptom which may or may not have been linked and it was winter so not real hay fever. I would take again if I felt I needed to.
