Nystan oral suspension is an antifungal medicine which is used to treat oral thrush. It directly kills the fungus, ridding the infection and clearing the symptoms quickly.
Oral thrush is a condition which is caused by an exponential growth of a natural fungus known as Candida.
You are more at risk of developing thrush if you:
Your doctor or dentist can diagnose oral thrush based on the clinical image. In some cases, a sample of the spores may be taken and examined under a microscope. Your doctor may recommend a blood test to determine if there may be an underlying medical condition which may put you at a higher risk of developing oral thrush.
Following our quick and simple medical questionnaire, our doctors can issue a prescription for Nystan which our UK registered pharmacy can fulfil.
Nystan oral suspension contains an antifungal called nystatin.
It works by weakening the cell walls of the fungus, allowing the contents of the cell to spill out, thus killing the cell and clearing the infection.
Nystan oral suspension should be taken exactly as instructed by your doctor or pharmacist.
The recommended dose for adults is 1ml of suspension dropped into the mouth four times a day. Take Nystan after each meal and before you go to bed.
To take Nystan oral suspension:
If you have dentures, remove them before swishing the suspension around your mouth.
Wait 20 minutes after using Nystan before eating or drinking anything.
The doctor will prescribe the recommended dose, depending on the severity of your condition and your tolerance towards the medicine.
A typical course of Nystan lasts for approximately two weeks.
Continue to use Nystan oral suspension for 2 days after your symptoms have subsided.
All medicines carry the risk of causing side effects, though not everybody gets them. Understanding the risks associated with your medicine and being vigilant of any changes throughout your course of treatment is vital to your care.

If you experience any side effects to this medicine, whether they are listed above or in the patient information leaflet supplied with your medication, report them to your doctor or ask a pharmacist for help.

Using Nystan oral suspension for oral thrush should not affect your ability to drive or operate machinery.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, speak to your doctor before taking Nystan. Your doctor will be able to determine whether the benefits of the medicine outweigh any potential risk posed to your child.
Always keep medicine out of the sight and reach of children and pets.
Never share your medicine with anyone else, even if they experience the same symptoms as you.
Using more of the medicine is unlikely to harm you because very little of the medicine is absorbed by your body.
However, using more Nystan can increase your risk of experiencing side effects such as nausea and stomach ache.
If you are at all concerned about using more of the suspension than intended, do not hesitate to contact your doctor or a pharmacist.
If you forget to take Nystan oral suspension when you should, take it as soon as you remember and continue to use your medicine as you normally would.
