There was a thread here a while back about Diflucan. I have been diagnosed with thrush and given seven days at 200 mg. That started to work but did not knock it, so I am halfway through my second week of it. My question is how long can I safely take it? It seems to be working but slowly. After the drug, I plan to take probiotics and maybe the grapefruit seed. Any other ideas? I thnk I have been fighting this for about twelve years following heavy antibiotics for tonsil abcess and removal. I only become aware of it when I feel something in my throat, but am realizing several other symptoms probably point to 'candida'.
