I’m surprised that I wasn’t able to find this information out by googling it but I do need some answers… I’m prescribed Vyvanse, a drug for attention deficit disorder. I’m wondering if taking it will impede my progress with candida? I don’t really want to quit using it but if absolutely necessary I will. I realize its probably not the best thing for fighting candida, but does anyone know how severely it will cause problems?
Anyone with any amount of help would be greatly appreciated.
Well firstly even if the answer was yes no one here can tell you to stop taking your medicine because you need it and your dr gave it to you for that very reason.
Secondly we are talking about amphetamines, I had a quick search online and most of the research is done on rats and seems to indicate that amphetamines won’t cause candida alone but it won’t help if your body is already a good environment for candida.
Now this research was done on rats not humans so its not something i would personally base a decision on. Also there is no evidence it will make recovery harder only that it may help rats develop candida if they are already predisposed to it.
Besides all this is irrelevant if you already have candida.
I would say put all thoughts of stopping your medication out of your mind and give the strict forum diet a good go.
Put it this way as long as your serious i don’t think your medication will stop you recovering.
At the end of the day accessing medications that you need are the priority, some people are forced to take antibiotics while on the diet which is a disaster but you mitgate it by increasing probiotics and you take them because you need them!
