Just be ready to herx! To minimize herxing, be very strict with your diet.

Yea, you can take it before bed.

I think it was a German study that found that Diflucan is good against BB. It inhibits the p450 enzyme and essentially causes BB to not be able to process toxins, makes it easier to kill.

Ketaconazole helped with candida for me and didn't make me herx as bad. Once I started back on diflucan I started herxing harder.

It's hard on the liver, so be sure you are taking Milk Thistle with it.

Not a good idea to take it with milk thistle .

Take it away from milk thistle because they interact with each otheras it does with rifampin to .

Take it as far as you can from each other to protect your liver.
