    Fluconazole – is it worth taking this if it’s available to me?

    They seem to be OTC here in the UK and I have seen a few people mention this drug.

    I use it 🙂 It is the drug my doctor wanted to give me when I told her about the diet.

    How often do you use it – I can only get it in a single pill format.

    I tried it, and it only made me feel sick and look pale. Its not good for you, especially the liver. Far better to stay on natural antifungals. Id also advice you to check out spirulina.

    Edit: And holy shit, 11 pounds for 1 capsule? They were 50 cents a piece in India. I wouldnt waste my money on this.

    I use it every day with 50 mg. The doctor gave me a prescription for 56 pills in total so I’m using it for two months and thereafter I will use garlic.

    I gave 100 Danish Crowns/11 pounds for all the pills. Normal it would be much more expensive but I have to pay for allergy pills, migraine pills, astma spray, allergy vaccination (theese are REALLY expensive, 224 pounds apiece) so in Denmark we get grants the more medication you need, but your doctor has to give you a prescription.
    Can’t you get it on a prescription like in Denmark in UK?

    I was also offered this by my doctor on prescription but decided not to take it as it is an anti-biotic. It makes no sense when anti-biotics are what cause Candida in the first place.

    I started on Fluconazole 5 days ago, and have a script for 10 doses. I’m seeing a gradual change in the whiteness on my tongue (the area is getting smaller). I’ve also been taking a probiotic, and curbed the fungus-feeding-frenzy with the diet. Everyone being different, I was wondering how long it may take before the whiteness disappears. I’m thinking it may take another 10 day dose after this one.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, think I’ll avoid this and stick to the protocol.

    I can feel the die off happening everyday which is good, but bad feeling!!

    Samm, if I remember right, you were taking 600 mcg a day of Molybdenum. You could easily raise this by another hundred and it’ll probably help the symptoms

    Fluconazole isn’t an antibiotic but an antifungal. 200 mg a day is the standard dose. 50 mg do nothing when you have a fungal overgrowth. This drug, as well as all the azoles, is fungistatic meaning that only inhibit the fungus growth.

    People who take Fluconazole for candida related complex take it for more than 3 months and 200 mg a day. The liver enzymes should be tested every month.
