What Nilstat Oral Suspension is and what it is used for

The name of this medicine is Nystan Oral Suspension. This medicine contains nystatin as the active ingredient. Nystatin belongs to a group of medicines called anti-fungal antibiotics. Nystan Oral Suspension is used to prevent and treat fungal infections (thrush) of the mouth, throat or gut. It also provides effective prevention against oral thrush in those born of mothers with vaginal thrush. This medicine works by killing the yeast or fungus that has caused your symptoms.

How to take Nilstat Oral Suspension

Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. The recommended dose for adults and children is 1ml of suspension dropped into the mouth four times a day. In the case of newborn babies, the recommended dose is 1ml once a day dropped into the mouth. There are no specific dosage recommendations or precautions for older people. Shake the bottle well before use. Use the measuring dropper provided. Doses should be equally spaced throughout the day. If you are taking this medicine for an infection in the mouth or throat, try not to swallow the suspension too quickly, as the longer the medicine is in contact with the site of infection the better. Your doctor will normally have given you sufficient medicine to enable you to continue treatment for 48 hours after all symptoms have disappeared. This will help to clear up your infection completely and prevent a relapse. If signs and symptoms worsen or persist (beyond 14 days of treatment), you should talk to your doctor. If you take more Nystan Oral Suspension than you should Taking more Nystan Oral Suspension than recommended should not cause any severe effects as the amount of Nystan absorbed by the body is very small. With very high doses, nausea and gastrointestinal upset were reported. However, in the case of a child, you may wish to check with your doctor or hospital emergency department.
