I am just finishing a 10 day course of fluconazole, and have noticed that the persistent ringworm on my chest has started to disappear. My doctor agreed to write me a prescription for another 10 days to see if the seborrheic dermatitis/rosacea on my face my also begin to improve.
To those who have taken diflucan, how long did you take it?
Fluconazole did nothing for me but on another forum, someone posted pictures of his endoscopy. The 'before' pictures showed white patches in the esophagus, the after pics showed that the patches cleared after 14 days on Fluco.
Fluconazol is very good. If you take it following a candida diet at least for 4 weeks, you are going to see results. The biggest problem with Fluconazol is drs prescibe it for short periods and to get results, we need to take it for a longer time. It is good to monitor your liver function when taking it, but don't get alarmed Fluconazol is consider a safe medication. Some people need to take it for 2 or 3 months to see real results.
I was prescribed diflucan for 4 weeks but my kaiser doc told me I didn't have to follow any kind of diet. Big mistake. It did nothing for me, I think it only made things worse. I'm curious how it would have been if I had followed the candida diet pretty strictly. I would have known better now, but this was way back when I was first trying to find out what my problem was. I'm just glad I'm in the hands of an ND now.
I love this stuff, but my doctors will only allow me to have ONE pill every once in awhile, when I really beg for it. But even after one dose, I can really tell a difference....all my water weight just melts off, which tells me that it is not so much water/fat, but toxins built up making me retain all that gunk in me. And the thrush on my tongue is almost completely gone after one dose.
The bad side is that I get some really bad die-off. Severe fatigue, depression, brain fog and forgetfulness. I have to take it when I have at least 2 days off work to recover.
