If you feel you have an overabundance of yeast in your system- start taking acidopholus- available at any health food/vitamin store. It can't hurt you at all- maybe it'll help.
You should definitely tell your doctor you think your symptoms are due to the antibiotic. But just know that "The Yeast Connection" is not generally accepted by doctors- however, bad effects from antibiotics are accepted by the medical community. They should be able to help you in some way.
: hi everyone...
: i was on tetracycline for 7 months for mild/moderate acne. it cleared me up, but now i'm experiencing weird symptoms such as fasciculations (muscle twitching), bad allergies, fatigue, and restless sleep. i've been to 3 doctors already and no one knows what is wrong. i really think that these symptoms are related to the antibiotics i was taking earlier this year. i read that they can produce an overabundance of yeast in the system and can therefore affect the nervous system, digestive system etc. has anyone had experience with this? how can i bring this up to my doctor? i'm scared that they won't take me seriously, but i know for a fact that i started feeling horrible after taking the tetracycline for so long. please help
