Candida Die Off Constipation
I'm a chronic Lyme patient; anti microbial use has caused yeast overgrowth and now yeast die-off symptoms. Is colon cleanse nec. to flush toxins?
Herxheimer Reaction: The die-off may be going too quickly. If you are using a doc prescribed medicine ask him/her about lowering the dose. If over the counter back off a little. Your body is killing off faster than you can expel the results. Peace and good health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Well: Sounds like you have a sensitive stomach. Don't know what probiotic you tried but floragen is pretty easy an the stomach. Some doctors have samples. For the BV have you tried vaginally yogurt with active culture one applicatorful a night, using an applicator that comes with monistat or from you other vaginal creams? Worth a try. Assume you have tried medications from the doc? If not get checked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not usual: It has been my experience that there is no relationship between candida and fatigue. You would have to have one overwhelming case of candida to cause your fatigue.......And why do you have the overgrowth. The fatigue may be a sign of an underlying problem which could be related to the candida. ...Read more
Had virus go through me 5 months ago. Caused major gastritis and stomach intestinal metaplasia. Gastritis not healing. Using PPI and H2 blockers. ????
More to this.: I hate to say it, but I simply am not convinced that a viral infection five months ago would solely explain all of this. There may be something else going on here that requires an investigation and proper diagnosis. You need to be evaluated and tested by gastroenterologist. ...Read more
I switched back to Gyne Lotrimin (clotrimazole) to treat vaginal yeast infection because Monistat almost killed me! I had serious side effects from it. ?
Is there a question?: All medicines may have side effects. Common side effects of Monistat include headache, burning/itching/pain in the vagina or urinary opening, or lower abdominal cramps. If Gyne-Lotrimin works better for you and Monistat caused problems...avoiding Monistat is a good decision. ...Read more
Can weaning off Lexapro (escitalopram) cause bloating, stomach distention, weight gain, and GI issues? If so, will they go away?
Will being on 10mg/day of prednisone (tapered down from 3 [email protected], [email protected]) make it harder to fight off gastroenteritis? I have ulcerative colitis.
Steroid gastritis: Corticosteroids like Prednisone can cause gastritis and ulcers, but ironically is used to treat episodes of colon ulcers and flares from ulcerative colitis. If you require several days of prednisone, or have recurrent uc attacks for which you have to take prednisone, then consideration of a protective med for your stomach is a good idea. Prilosec otc and Prevacid (lansoprazole) are otc, talk to your GI doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I get spasms from IBS causing constipation. Bentyl (dicyclomine) stops that allowing me to poop but it makes me very irritable. Will Pepto Bismol work instead?
Not likely : Pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) is not indicated for abdominal spasms or constipation . If you are having pain with the spasm it may help alleviate that;however , I do not think it will stop the spasms per se. If it does help ...great! I would be cautious in the amount of Pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) you take as it contains salicylate which can be toxic if taken more than recommended . ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A short time: Most types of germs (viruses and bacteria) do not live very long in unfriendly environments like a piece of paper. Some types live longer than others, and a few like the mycobacteria that causes tuberculosis can live a fairly long time outside of a body. There are spores, like botulinum spores that can live a very long time outside of a host. ...Read more
Can't digest fibers too b/c of confirmed SIBO. I'm on antibiotics for another condition & have constipation. What natural stool softeners can I take?
Yes, don't!: Healthtap physicians have repeatedly addressed colon "cleansers" with a clear "no" answer. There is virtually no value to colon flushes, cleansers, enemas, irrigation machines when the technique is accomplished to "detox" or eliminate "accumulated waste." the "no" response also applies to liver detoxes! there are few real health benefits, but sigificant unjustified risk, as you've questioned. ...Read more
