    Hi. I’m not on the diet as of yet, but am considering it. My hesitation is that if I stop taking my iron supplement(which I tried and the fallout was very bad) as well as my sleeping pill(clonazapan), which I can’t sleep without,(I’ve tried several times)I don’t know if I will be able to function for very long. Can I continue to take these for a while into the cleanse or is it something I have to quit cold turkey and suffer? Because, I don’t know if my family or I will be too willing to go through that again.

    Mmm, I’m a newbie too but that sounds like you should consult a doctor first. This might or might not be suitable for you.

    My doctor is very much against this whole idea of candida. So, I’m on my own.

    I don’t think you should stop anything cold turkey, especially when it’s doctor-prescribed. You’re going to have trouble sleeping no doubt because of the Candida itself so stopping the sleeping pill now is only going to make matters worse.

    hi there mariegirl,
    I am also new to this, and I haven’t stopped taking any of my meds (including iron supplements and thyroid pills as well as antidepressants). I don’t think the diet means that you should stop taking meds at all. They are not mutually exclusive.
    all the best

    I take a sleeping medication called amytriptaline and have used it for about 10 years. I have chronic insomnia. I have been able to get better despite its use. However, I do feel that it is a cause/factor of my candida overgrowth and leaky gut, so I hope to get off this medication sometime in the future.

    If you opt to stop taking the clonazepam suddenly, you may suffer very serious withdrawal symptoms. Clonazepam is in a drug class called benzodiazepines and they are considered habit forming medications that should only be stopped under careful medical guidance and tapering off when stopping. Please be cautious.
