I just wanted to let everyone know that after 2 weeks of diflucan, (3) Capryl Acids pills 3 times a day, and (3) Tanalbit pills 3 times a day, that I feel much better.
I was going about 12 times or so a day, and within 3 days that dropped to 6-7. I am on somewhat of a anti-candida diet, but I am not as strict as I should be. I am by no means in remission, but to drop my bm's in half, and bring me out of a really bad flare is pretty good. I have not had ANY change in my bm's like this is almost 3 years, so its not a spontaneous healing of some sorts ( for you non fungal believers out there :)
The real reason that I ask the doc to put me on diflucan, was for humira. I started taking the diflucan and feeling better, about 11 days before starting Humira. I gave myself 4 shots this weekend, follow by 2 shots in 2 weeks, then one shot ever two weeks for maintenance. Its too early to tell, but I havent had any side-effects, or soreness at the injection site. I will say that the shot hurt like hell, but its over in 5 seconds.
I have taken capryl acid, Tanalbit, and nystatin before, but never at the same time. This time I decided to try a different fungal script and take both supplements at the same time, and boy did it help. I am finally sleeping all night, and only waking up maybe once to use the bathroom. Mornings are still bad, but after 11 or so, I am good to go.
here is my regimen:
LDN at 11:30 p.m.
(3) Capryl Acid 3 times a day
(3) Tanalbit 3 times a day
(1) Difulcan once a day (2 days left)
I think with Humira taking care of the inflammation, LDN helping it not to dampen my immune system to bad, and the anti-fungals, I might be on the road to remission. I need to get this 2.5 year flare under control. My GI said he is amazed that I function at the frequency of bm's per day.
