I thought the stuff worked good for me...I would wake up with symptoms...do a packet and my whole body would calm down, Now otheres have told me that it was just the Sugar in the ThreeLac that satisfied the Candida for a while, but I was up to 4 packets a day and feeling good, then down to one/day. When symptoms came back I upped it to 3/day and they went away again. Only symptom that is really persisting is my white coated tongue that fades from pink to white depending on my diet I believe. When I first got diagnosed I went on strict diet without ThreeLac and that really worked..have you tried that diet???
