Hi,

I just started using this med yesterday. I have noticed a white filmy substance on my tonuge in the mornings, failed the spit test. I did have yeast tests done, but neg!

Anyway, my PCP gave me this Mycelex for oral fungal growth. I have ben brushing/rinsing with listerine, eating yogurt/pro-biotics....

I hope I feel better in a week or so...Then back to the healthy diet and lots of water and abx.

I am hoping to see Dr. H in NY soon.

Thanks,

I used it for doxy induced thrush. Worked well. Convenient for when out of the house.

I used it dispite the sugar content.

It worked well but it was hard for me to remember to take it 5 times a day for 2 weeks.

I had severe oral thrush from the original IV antibiotics 2 years ago. Had a terrible time getting it under control. Stopped eating sugar all together. Tried Mycelex, Nystatin, Diflucan, and one anti-fungal that made me go blind for 10 minutes after taking it!! The ONLY thing that has helped is swishing with something called "Biotic Silver" made by Candidia Wellness. I also take acidoph, because fungal infection has been persistent in my gut. It is very difficult to get rid of it completely and very annoying, painful and gross when you have a full blown "attack" of it. Try the Biotic Silver. Might help. I am brand new to this website, so hello to everyone.

So you're NOT on a healthy diet NOW?? [Eek!] How do you expect to kill the yeast? BTW, forget the "tests"...go by symptoms.

Five Steps to Candida Elimination:

1. You must starve it into submission by eliminating its food source.

2. You must kill it with anti-fungal herbs and supplements. [e.g....garlic, onion, caprylic acid, Pau D'Arco capsules or tea, clove, grapefruit seed extract, olive leaf extract, oil of oregano, tea tree oil, Echinacea, Goldenseal, black walnut, MSM, barberry root, uva ursi, neem leaf, biotin]

3. You must reestablish the proper balance and quantity of probiotic bacteria in the digestive tract. [...multi-strain lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus capsules with FOS should be taken between meals to maximize repopulation of the digestive tract by beneficial bacteria.]

4. You must reestablish proper levels of all B vitamins (yeast free) and utilize other immune enhancing supplements to boost immune system function. [e.g ... B complex vitamins (yeast free), biotin, beta 1-3 glucan, colostrum, maitake mushroom, vitamins A, C, E, zinc and selenium]

5. You must cleanse and heal the digestive tract to promote proper elimination of toxins and Candida and assimilation of nutrients. [e.g...chlorophyll, MSM, omega 3 fatty acids found in flax seed and salmon oils, GLA found in borage, evening primrose and black currant oils. Pantothenic acid, digestive enzymes between meals]
