Not a lot of discomfort just full to the point not hungry,Im taking probiotics I eat healthy.

Missed 2 days of doxy when this started which doesnt make sense.Must be coincidence.

what probiotic are you taking...it can be frustrating but I had to try about 3 before I found the right one for me. Strange thing was one worked fine until we added zithromax to my cocktail of abx...that's when I started having the symptoms you described.

That is how my C diff infection started. Very bloated, nausea, loud gurgling then about 5-7 days later the diarrhea hit.

I would up your probiotics and watch your GI closely. If diarrhea starts, consider c diff and treat asap.

How MUCH are you taking?? I really think those on abx need AT LEAST 100 CFU's per day of a high quality probiotic.

As for right now, you may need to ask for some Diflucan to KILL the yeast out.

Probiotics are a preventative measure.

Excellent probiotics:

Candida diet and elimination:

http://www.wholeapproach.com/diet/

http://www.candida-albicans-cure.com/candida-albicans-symptoms.html


DIET, DIET, DIET is the key. Then, be sure to follow the 5 step plan outlined below. It was developed by my naturopath. It works.

"Successful control and elminiation of a Candida Albicans overgrowth requires a multifaceted program as described below. Failure to follow ALL the steps simultaneously will result in slow progress and will lengthen healing time significantly. The program should be tailored to the individual and must balance the need to eliminate the Candida and deprive it of its food source while insuring proper nutrition for the individual."

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]
