Hi all -

I have posted in the past about my symptoms. I stopped taking abx about a month ago as I felt they were not helping. I have lots of issues as most of us do and probably not attributed to Lyme on its own (or could be something else i dont really know)

In the past week or so I have been feeling very bloated, stomach making lots of noises, feeling extremely dizzy and nauseous. Couple of on and off headaches that have mostly subsided.

I suspect this is parasite/candida because yesterday my girlfriend was quite dizzy/headache-y and she was even vomiting. It seems to have subsided for her today.

I also suspect parasite/candida because for the past few months I've had (incoming TMI sorry) rectal itching and even white flecks on my penis skin after **********.

Are there any quick fixes to this or something I can take to help? I still have nystatin and am wondering if I should maybe take it at least temporarily. I am seeing a doctor on Monday who deals with Lyme, parasites and all sorts of other unconventional things.

I am freaking out somewhat here and would appreciate any input.

I would go ahead and take the Nystatin. When were you prescribed it...and why haven't you taken it?


If it is Candida, you may need something stronger like Diflucan.
You should ask about this when you see your Dr. on Monday.

I was taking Nystatin while taking the abx, prescribed by LLMD. I stopped the Nystatin and the abx.

Any idea of a safe dosage? The bottle says 1 tablet 3x daily, each tablet has 500,000iu.

I subscribe to an online lyme treatment 'book'.

I'll go check and see if that LLMD gives a dosage...be right back.

So, it's 500,000 iu 2 pills twice daily for the Nystatin.

He also combines it with Diflucan 200 mg 1 pill daily for 30 days.

In place of Nystatin - a mixture of herbals. (pau d'arch, caprillic acid, rosemary oil, thyme oil, garlic, use)

In addition a high quality probiotic.


** I have read posts here that people are taking 200 mg twice daily of the Diflucan...but I don't recall how long they treat.

Thanks Girlie, I don't have Diflucan so will use the Nystatin I think. My stomach/intestines just won't stop making noises.

The dosage on the bottle should be fine.

Have you been taking probiotics daily?

Yes I have.

Maybe my girlfriend and I just picked up some virus that will pass in a couple of days or something like that.
