Other medications: There are other medications you can take like oral nystatin. First, please make sure that this is confirmed diagnosis of candida overgrowth. A lot of unnecessary media and gossip about this entity exists. Good Luck

Yeast: You have not mentioned if you have a yeast problem in your genitals or skin. Why are you on low dose antibiotics for so long?
