Jason, I developed a bad case of SIBO after being on Nexium only 5 months. I was on a double dose the first two weeks. Another factor may be that before the Fast Tract diet, I was eating lots of carbs, like bagels, because I heard they were good to eat to “soak up excess acid”. I liked the fact that they packed in lots of calories as I had lost quite a bit of weight. It’s probably best to ask your doctor; however, if you test negative for SIBO, I do not think that 3 or 4 weeks on a PPI would cause it to happen. I am not sure about the Candida.
