    I am fortunate to be working with a doctor who has me on a combination of prescription and non-prescription antifungals. When I take the antifungals I feel die-off (fatigue, muscle/joint pain, stomach pain/nausea). She says that at this point in my treatment (3 months) I should not be experiencing die-off from the antifungals. She says that I should be feeling much better.

    My question is simple: Isn’t it possible that die-off can last a long time depending upon each individual person’s level of infestation?

    I’m on month 11 and coming out of some horrible die off today. There’s no rule of thumb for die off, it varies per person.

    Out of curiosity, would you ask your doctor her explanation for why you are still feeling so bad if die-off is meant to be over?

    I am in the same boat as you at 3 months of treatment. The primary thing I am dealing with now is fairly restricting fatigue. I find if I do too much my legs will turn to jelly and it will take me a couple of days to bounce back. I’m also still getting aches and pains, and some anxiety too but that’s hardly surprising given that I have an anxiety disorder.

    I am sometimes sceptical of it strictly being candida die-off. I sometimes think that it is possibly due to other factors such as copper detox or parasites or something. However, though not specifically designed for it, a candida diet can be generally helpful for addressing a number of hormonal/mineral imbalances as well as giving parasites the boot, so perhaps our malaise is originating in something else!

    Thank you both for your input!

    To answer your question Cheesey she had previously mentioned that my IgE (traditional/immediate immunity level) were abnormally high … this could be to environmental components (like MOLDS) or something else. She wants to test the specifics of this so I will update you.

    Also, I empathize with you about the fatigue and anxiety. My experience is that Candida treatment in the past really brought my anxiety down. I also use an audio/meditation program called Holosync that has helped as well!

    I still have possible dieoff here and there and it’s been 4 months. But if I eat something like I shouldn’t have at Easter I get bad die off die to nystatin and other antifungals. I have bad anxiety and a lot of nutritional deficiencies that could be symptoms like die off

    If you are feeding candida things it likes such as rice, potatoes, nuts, beef, dairy, etc. then you can have perpetual die-off because it goes away and comes back over and over.

    If you have h.pylori or SIBO you can have perpetual die-off because the antifungals you are taking are not targeting the right organ or infection.

    If you have a slightly damaged liver and didn’t protect your liver properly you can have perpetual die-off.

    If you have really bad leaky gut you can get perpetual die-off.

    If you lack stomach acid this can cause it as well.
