What is Nystan (nystatin) and how does it work?

Nystan oral suspension is an anti-fungal, antibiotic medicine used to prevent and treat oral thrush (oral candidiasis or candidal infections) in people over the age of 18 years.

Each Nystan 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.

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.
