Has anyone taken nystatin with their antibiotics and probiotics. I just got back from my LLMD with this added rx. I'm nervous to take it. will it make me sick to my stomach? Thanks in the way, Doc said things are progressing nicely [Smile]

It's for the yeasties!


follow the directions....frankly I don't think it's worth crap....

but then again it's usefulness to me may be long


I prefer other metronidazole
and or


however I am curious as to what "progressing

nicely" could possibly mean?

I take nystatin. It definitely helps my yeast issues. Whenever I slip in taking it, and forget about it for a few days, my yeast slowly comes back. It does not make my stomach hurt, it just tastes gross. I mix it with water in a Dixie cup, and take it very quickly. Be sure to have something to chase it with, like a glass of water. I am not really supposed to be drinking mush juice, but often I tale a sip of juice after, just to get rid of the taste.

Be sure to ramp up slowly, like with any other medication. I felt a little weird when I started, but nothing bad. I read somewhere that you might feel a little drunk from the yeast die-off, but I didn't experience that. Don't be scared, its not that bad.

thank you! it's a tablet, though.

lola, it is like taking nothing. It will not affect your stomach. Nothing to worry about.

It will help keep yeast away.

Im supposed to start this too. It has the least side effects of all of my medications so Im hoping it goes well.

I took it the whole time I was on abx. It's a great preventative. Should not make you sick.

It did make me feel a little nauseous when I was taking it. Nothing major, though.

Liquid? It would make me sick too.. same with powder form...yuck!!

I had no idea there was a pill form. I take it in a powder form and it is gross! I will have to ask about the tablet.
