Oh Mrs F. How irritating. Still, hopefully, you can change the medication and sort out all the problems.

Good luck

Here's hoping it can all be sorted soon Mrs F - always worth reading the contra-indications on medicines.

repeated thrush and cystitis makes me wonder if you have a candida overgrowth in your digestive tract, I had many of those symptoms and once I'd got the candida sorted they all improved dramatically - especially the thrush and cystitis. I got a little book that helped, will try to dig it out and give the title etc if you're interested
