Nystatin is not effe: Nystatin is not effective for tinea cruris. If you have tinea cruris you also have tinea pedis (fungus on the feet). This treatment might help if you have monilia or intertrigo or seborrheic dermatitis. If it does not cure it, try otc Clotrimazole or Miconazole or ketoconazole. You may need a dermatologist. ...Read more

What are the possible side effects of nystatin?

Probably not,: Unless has been opened and exposed to bacteria that shouldn't be in there. Nystatin is anti-fungal and does not kill bacteria.

Taking nystatin does not work.Having oral thrush and amalgam fillings don't mix. The candida/thrush will never go away, antibiotic resistant and sick.

Taking nystatin does not work.Having oral thrush and amalgam fillings don't mix. The candida/thrush will never go away, antibiotic resistant and sick.

Resistant Yeast: If you are on multiple antibiotics and have been taking common anti thrush medicine like Nystatin for some time, it is more than likely that the yeast has become resistant, for which your doctor needs to give you other anti fungal melds like Fluconazole or Amphitracin. Culturing the oral yeast with sensitivity will provide useful info on medicines which would work. ...Read more

Please help! what happens when someone has a drug overdose?

Please help! what happens when someone has a drug overdose?

That depends on: How serious it is and what drugs or medications were taken. Overdoses are often treated initially in an emergency room. The person is monitored and often they have intravenous fluids. If they stopped breathing - a tube can be inserted to assist with breathing. Sometimes they are given charcoal to absorb the drugs and sometimes their stomach is "pumped". They may need to be given medications. ...Read more

Is it ok to take  nystatin & probitics the same time? Would that cause to much die off syptoms? Is it true  u can get candida die off ?

Yes,they go together: Yes, it is good to take probiotics (I usually recommend full fat plain yogurt ) together with Nistatin. You may not feel well if too much candida dies off at the same time and a lot of toxins are released in a short period. The yogurt and other probiotic foods ( or probiotic capsules ,if you do not like food) can be only helpful to soften this die off reaction Best, Siranush Cholakian MD ...Read more
