I've found that all the meds the doctors give me make me sick. and you don't need Antibiotics for the flu. They just give you that becasue if you die of pneumonia, your family can't sue them for not covering all the bases. I really have made a huge realization recently, finding out that I have food allergies , with foods that are actually on the diet. That explains why the diet isn't kicking in so fast. I take live-cell probiotics and multivitamens, but I really shy away from any prescription drugs (unless they are prescribed by my candida doctor). They could devastate a person with an already compromised immune system.
