My husband was also bothered by thrush, made a bit more complicated because they needed a med that he could take via tube and wouldn’t interact with methadone to cause heart issues. The biggest issue now seems to be the constant thick mucous, for which he is swishing several times/day; taking guafenesine to thin it out and running a nightly vaporizer. His pain level has dropped to a level 2-3 but it’s still too painful to swallow.

We are wondering how far out the mucous issues will continue.
