How does the drug and to whom it is shown

Tabletki-nistatin Nystatin tablets have a devastating effect on the membranes of fungal cells. Penetrating inside, the active substance of the drug violates the integrity of the cells, leading to their death. It is especially active in yeast-like fungi of the genus Candida.

  • mucous membranes and skin,

Possible side effects

The drug is not toxic and is generally well tolerated when taken internally. In some cases, there are:

During treatment with Nystatin, side effects are quite rare. With the abolition of the drug they pass.

It is important - about the compatibility of drugs

antimikotik-nistatin Since nystatin passes through the human body almost “in transit,” it interacts with a small amount of medication. But those who are being treated with other medicines at the same time should know:

  1. In a pair of Tetracycline - Nystatin "partners" complement each other well. Their antifungal and antimicrobial effect is more pronounced.
  2. Clotrimazole activity decreases.
  3. In combination with Polymyxin and Nifuratel Nystatin enhances its action. The same result from combination with chemotrypsin.
  4. The activity of the drug decreases from antacids with aluminum, magnesium, calcium (Maalox, Almagel, etc.).
  5. From Nystatin weakens the effect of indirect anticoagulants (Atcenocoumarol, Coumadin, Warfarin, Fenindione, etc.).
  6. The reducing effect of interaction with Nystatin occurs with bactericidal antibiotics (cephalosporins, penicillins).
  7. Combining with Nystatin also reduces the effectiveness of oral contraceptives with estrogen (Logest, Marvelon). The risk of bleeding between periods increases.

Treatment program

For adults:

6679 In case of candidiasis of internal organs, the medicine can be consumed regardless of food in the amount of 500,000 units 3-4 times a day or 250,000 IU from 6 to 8 times a day. Tablets are recommended to be swallowed entirely. On average, the treatment course lasts from 10 days to two weeks.

If there are observed generalized or constantly emerging forms of fungal infection, prescribe new courses of treatment at intervals of two to three weeks. The dosage is increased to 6,000,000 units per day.

In the treatment of oral mucosal candidiasis, nystatin tablets are placed on the cheek until they dissolve. The dose is 500,000 units. The procedure should be performed after eating and brushing. Frequency 3-5 times per day.

With candidiasis of the digestive organs:

Since the drug is characterized mainly by local action on the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract, it is often prescribed for the treatment of candidiasis of the digestive system.

If this disease has hit the intestines, stomach or esophagus, then nystatin is prescribed by mouth for 1-2 tablets (500,000 IU) four times a day. The duration of treatment is at least two weeks.

For kids:

In pediatrics, nystatin is still used against candidiasis. Oral thrush is often cured with a drug-based formulation. A tablet of 250,000 IU is ground into powder and combined with a solution of vitamin B12 (in a vial of 1 ml). This composition lubricates the diseased areas of the oral cavity. Sometimes the vitamin solution is replaced by water.

The dose of nystatin is assigned depending on the age of the child:

  • up to 1 year: from 100 to 125 thousand IU 3-4 times a day;
  • from 1 to 3 years: 250 000 IU 3-4 times per day;
  • from 3 to 13 years: 250 000 or 400 000 IU per day 3-4 times;
  • above 13 years old: 250,000 or 500,000 IU per day 3-4 times


I had a long and sluggish current thrush. I tried to resort to expensive drugs. But unsuccessfully. The doctor advised Nystatin tablets. I had a long and tedious treatment. But the tool has proven effective. I liked that the fungus practically does not get used to this drug. That is, it can be used three times a year. Yes, and his budget price, which is also a plus.

During my life I did not suspect that there is throat candidiasis. But recently this diagnosis was made to me. On the advice of a doctor, she bought Nystatin 500 tablets. She took exactly according to the instructions - three tablets per day. After a couple of days, the sore throat began to decrease, and after another day it completely disappeared. But to be sure, I drank the cure throughout the week. Now healthy. Lyudmila, 41, Volgograd

      Enough intravaginally, after the course you need to make a course of female probiotics to restore the microflora. After antibiotics, this is especially true. Such drugs are in any pharmacy in the form of capsules or candles - Vagilak, Laktozhinal and others.

      If after this there will be a relapse, then you can think about pills.

    • Doc :


      Taking a month is dangerous for the liver. Usually, when you have stomatitis, they are prescribed to keep in the mouth and dissolve, but the maximum duration is 2 weeks.

      Unfortunately, this happens; some people have a tendency to some disease in a chronic form. Try for prophylaxis, rinse chlorhexidine from time to time, 1-2 times a week.

      Nystatin helps. If this is your first time, then candles are best. If the discharge on the external genitals, then add the cream.

      If you get sick again, then you need to add pills to the candles.

  • Elena :

    Hello, tell me if nystatin will help me and in what dosage I have been found in a candida albicans DNA smear analysis. I do not observe any symptoms. Thanks!

      At present, drugs Voriconazole and Caspofungin are available against Candida krusei, which cost an enormous amount of money. There is itraconazole, to which cruise is sensitive, but less so than other mushrooms.

      We advise you to find another doctor who can appoint a course of itraconazole and monitor its effectiveness.

  • Georg :

    Hello, today is the sixth day I began to take Nystatin, after I found thrush in my oral mucosa. About a year ago, problems started after taking antibiotics, the doctor didn’t pay attention to brushing off the tongue and reddening. Over time, the tongue began to become covered with a more dense bloom, knobs and I suspected a fungus. After seeing the symptoms on the Internet, I found a complete resemblance to my symptoms. He started taking Nystatin tablets first 1 4 times a day, the next day he increased the dose to 2 tablets 4 times a day, while one of the two tablets began to dissolve, he added mouth rinsing with a solution of baking soda, added Lugol, but unfortunately there were visible changes in the positive side yet. I will seek the opportunity to get to another doctor, NOT THERAPY. Although he investigated all the internal organs to me, he didn’t reveal the problem, but the problem prescribed in my epicrises “gastroduodenitis” + chronic liver cholecystitis, which the “doctor” didn’t even look at.
    I look forward to the end of the 14 days of taking Nystatin, I would very much like to get the desired result.
