  1. This is one treatment that worked, so annoying when it's taken off medical reason or whatever.

  2. It's almost impossible to keep the Nystatin suspension on the tongue for the recommended period. Sucking a lozenge would be so much easier.

  3. It is time that candida or thrush in the gut and throat is real and they should bring back the nystatin pastiles

  4. Please bring back nystatin oral pastilles. They were the only effective treatment for gut infections

    1. I know this comment was several years ago, have you found an answer to yeast in your gut?
      I deal with the same issue.

  5. @Vonnie,

    As stated above the manufacturer withdrew the product for 'commercial reasons'.

  6. None of the above mentioned suspensions ( including Nystatin ) are any where near as effective as Nystatin Pastilles in controlling oral Thrush. Why were the pastilles withdrawn?

  7. Not true, amphoteracin, ketoconazole, miconazole and nystatin suspension are all licensed to treat gastrointestinal fungal infections.

  8. There is no alternative to Nystatin pills to treat fungus in the gut. Millions of users are left without alternative.
