Frequently Asked Questions for Nystan
What side effects does Nystan have?
The common side effects of nystatin oral solution include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach upset, and skin rash.
If you experience any severe side effects such as difficulty breathing or swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat, seek emergency medical attention immediately.
How does Nystan work?
Nystatin is an antifungal medication used to treat a variety of fungal infections. It works by binding to the fungal cell membrane, which causes holes to form in the membrane. This leads to leakage of the cellular contents and ultimately the death of the fungus.
Nystatin is not absorbed into the bloodstream, meaning it only works locally in the area where it is applied or taken orally. This makes it a good option for treating infections of the skin, mouth, and gastrointestinal tract.
Nystatin is often used to treat candidiasis, a common fungal infection caused by Candida albicans. It may also be used to prevent fungal infections in people with weakened immune systems or in those undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
