The suggested way to take this is:

-then 2 capsules 3 times daily until the bottle is finished.
This supplement can be taken with or without meals.
Candidase™ includes two enzymes that help control Candida overgrowth. In individuals with yeast overgrowth there is often a large amount of undigested fiber in the large intestine. Cellulase is the enzyme that breaks down fiber. It is also the only digestive enzyme our body does not make. By adding cellulase to the diet this fiber may be removed along with mucus and our body is able to achieve balance. The cell of yeast contains some fungal cellulose or a compound called chitin. Chitin is a polysaccharide, or carbohydrate, which is structurally very similar to cellulose. For the same reasons cellulase may help remove undigested fiber in the colon, it has been used in breaking down this cellulose-like chitin. The inside of the cell of yeast is mostly protein . The enzyme protease has the ability to hydrolyze (digest) protein. Protease has been used in clinics all over the world to break down this fungus and prevent its overgrowth. The addition of protease to this formula helps the body deal with excess "die-off" or common symptoms of cleansing.
Suggested Use: For moderate symptoms, take 2 capsules, 3 times per day at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal for 7 days (for maintenance 2 a day). For acute symptoms, take 2 capsules, 3 times a day at least ½ hour before or 2 hours after a meal for 14 days

I have found grapefruit seed extract to be very helpful in my own battle with candida. It can be taken one to four times daily. There are many strains of candida and many species of fungus that can live in the human body. It is very hard if not impossible to figure out what strain you have and what it is sensitive to. Therefore sometimes it is best just to try different anti-fungal supplements to determine the one that works best in your body.
