Yes, I am on antibiotics for the IBS which was Dycyclomine and Hyosciamine. (Sp). They are the only things that seem to work to control the gas. However, that has caused a sensitivity to yeast and thrush on my tongue and a rash I cannot get rid of. So frustrating. I just ordered some probiotics (threelac) that i hear helps with candida. Normally probiotics make my gas worse. I heard the extra virgin olive oil helps and have added that into my diet as well as flax oil and omega 3.
I agree, it is a catch 22 because I do not eat any carbs besides quinoa or oatmeal that does not contain yeast. I love wine, but only induldge on sulfite free or vodka is okay as it is a grain that does not contain yeast. Beer and wine are the worst. I agree, the weekends come and it is hard. I also am pescatarian but do not eat dairy either as I am allergic...so pretty much vegan but add in seafood.
Do you have side affects with Nystatin? The ones I have tried make me loopy! So, I only take them when necessary. I have altered my diet in so many ways and I am at my wits end. I have even had a colonoscopy. I also have a gluten sensitivity too - go figure!
It is helpful - thank you so much and glad I am not the only one suffering!
