I’ve been on candida diet for almost two months. At first I took some natural antifungals and after some positive lab tests (Complete stool analysis and Candida IgG) a doctor prescribed me Nystatin a couple of weeks ago. A few days later I saw a respected doctor specialising in infections (I’d booked the time already months earlier) and he prescribed me Doxycycline and Diflucan for two months. The idea would be to kill possible bacteria and viruses behind inflammations and keep candida from getting worse with the use of Diflucan.
I started the combo ten days ago and almost immediately felt this may have been a mistake, since it does have a chance to make my candida worse. Then I googled “Doxycycline Diflucan Candida” and found e.g. this link:
Here’s the summary:
I don’t understand it fully, but doesn’t it mean that at least in theory Doxy could actually help Diflucan against candida? How come isn’t there more info about this? I also couldn’t tell how much of those medicines should be taken.
I wanted to bring this up for two reasons. If this is true it could be very useful info for many candida sufferers, especially ones that really need to take antibiotics for some reason. I’ve also almost made up my mind about stopping the antibiotic, which I should take for two months. However, some CFS protocols advise to have a course of Doxy for at least 5-6 weeks so if Doxy and Diflucan were a good pair against candida I’d rather have the treatment now and then concentrate on my candida afterwards. Any ideas would be very welcome indeed! Thank you!
