    What is Nystan?

    Nystan oral suspension is an anti-fungal, antibiotic medicine containing the active ingredient Nystatin and is used to prevent and treat oral thrush in people over the age of 18 years. Each 30ml bottle contains the active ingredient nystatin and comes with a built-in applicator making it quick and easy to apply directly to the mouth.

    What is Nystan Oral Suspension used for?

    Nystan contains the active ingredient nystatin, which is an anti-fungal agent, effective for the treatment of oral thrush.

    If you are over the age of 18 years old and are struggling with oral irritation caused by thrush you can get a prescription of Nystan online through Cloud Pharmacy and get your treatment started without waiting to see your GP.

    If you struggle with repeated cases of oral thrush, you can read our guide on oral thrush prevention to find out what you can do to reduce the likeliness of your symptoms returning.

    How does Nystatin Oral Suspension work?

    Nystatin works by weakening the cell walls of the fungus, allowing the contents of the cell to spill out, thus killing the cell and clearing the infection.

    It does this by attaching to a compound called ergosterol, which the cells need to maintain their cell membrane. This causes the cell wall to become weak and lose its structural integrity.

    While you may notice an improvement in your symptoms within a day or two of taking Nystatin, it is important to continue to take Nystatin for the full period prescribed by your doctor in order to eradicate your infection.

    Similarly to antibiotics, ceasing Nystatin treatment early can cause the infection to come back. Therefore, it is important to complete your course of antifungal medication as prescribed.

      The anti-fungal ingredient nystatin, when used as an oral suspension, kills the fungus that causes thrush by targeting the infection generating the contents of the cells to leak making it impossible for them to expand or survive.
