Is there a good way for me to take care of thrush while on antibiotics?

If you cannot do that, try using warm saltwater rinses 3 times a day for every day you are on the medication and a week after. Gentian violet has also be recommended as a home treatment for oral thrush but it is poisonous so do not use. ...Read more

Nystatin: Nystatin swish and swallow is usually used for thrush. Since you may be pregnant, go get tested to confirm. Get a pregnancy test and a thrush/fungal throat swab. Nystatin is category C for pregnancy, which means some birth defects have been seen in animal studies but it has not been studied in pregnant human patients. So you'd need your doctors clearance to use it. ...Read more

Antibiotics ; thrush: You know that when you take this antibiotic you always get thrush. Mention this to your doctor next time to see if a different antibiotic would be acceptable. If not, then request something for the thrush that your experience tells you will occur.

Azole resistant?: Most yeast infections (thrush) are caused by Candida albicans, but 10-15% are due to C glabrata, which is often resistant to fluconazole and other "azole" drugs. See your doctor to confirm the yeast diagnosis and advice about alternative treatments, such as nystatin, caspofungin, or flucytosine. Good luck. ...Read more

It : It is generally not recommended that Clotrimazole and Migranal (dihydroergotamine) be taken together. The combination can cause higher levels of Migranal (dihydroergotamine) in the blood and a few cases of toxicity have been reported. Luckily, no problems have been reported with the Clotrimazole lozenges though a theoretical risk exists. Symptoms of toxicity include numbness, tingling, abdominal pain, chest pain, muscle cramps and rapid pulse. If you are feeling any of these call your doctor or go to the emergency room. Good luck! ...Read more
