Yes, cortisone is a prescription, mine comes from a compounding pharmacy. That's the only thing they have me on for adrenals. They also have me on compounded Nystatin. The sweats started sometime into the diet phase of my battle and continued even when I stopped. They were not every night but often.
I'm supposed to be on a diet according to my blood type and for mine that means no grains and I don't seem to have any problems with grains so I don't follow it.
I've said this before, if anyone has been ill for quite awhile before finding out about the candida, like as not there are other systems within your body that are not functioning properly and if those aren't treated as well I don't think the candida battle will be won. I wasted 18 months fighting just candida getting nowhere, finally started treating thyroid, adrenals and female hormones and doing mercury removal and finally regaining my life.
