I haven’t kept contact with any of them,sorry. Don’t panic, you will reach a cure. It is real. The yeast is inside the cells and the response to antifungals confirms it. Pay close attention to the burning sensation 1 hour or 2 after the antifungal dose. 400 mg of Ketoconazole is a good alternative if your first intent fail. I hope you be lucky.!
I took Fluconazole and Lamisil for 3 months. The last month I reduced the Lamisil dose to half (100mg) It wasn’t enough in my case, even when I got a lot better. I stopped because I didn’t see more progress with the combination. Also, consider how hard those drugs are.
I like the Diflucan/Ibuprofen combination. However, I am not sure how long you can take Ibuprofen diary. Fluconazole is powerful and effective but candida acquires resistance to it easy, at least in my experience. Ibuprofen reverses the acquired resistance “in vitro” and with animal models. When the resistance is intrinsic, you need to change the drug. You need to consult all this with your Dr. Go step by step. If the first combination isn’t effective, you can try another one.
As I told you, it is a gambling. You don’t know what species is there and if the drug will be effective or not.
