This medication is utilized for the treatment of vaginal fungal infections, commonly referred to as vaginal yeast infections. It effectively alleviates symptoms such as itchiness, redness, and bothersome discharge. Nystatin is classified within the group of medicines known as antifungals, acting to impede the growth of the fungus causing the infection.

Uses and Dosage

This product is designed for vaginal use. Using clean hands, fill the applicator with the indicated amount of cream. Insert the applicator high into the vagina and push the plunger to release the medication. Typically, use this medication once a day at bedtime, or as directed by your doctor, it may be used twice a day in the morning and evening.

If the applicator is reusable, follow the provided instructions on how to clean it.

To prevent medication leakage, lie down as soon as possible after use. You may use a sanitary napkin to avoid staining clothing. Avoid using tampons concurrently, as they may reduce the medication’s effectiveness.

In most cases, medicated douches should not be used during nystatin treatment. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Consistently use this medication to derive the maximum benefit, remembering to apply it at the same time(s) each day.

Follow the full prescribed duration, even if symptoms improve within a few days or during your menstrual period. Prematurely stopping the medication may allow the fungus to persist, leading to a potential relapse of the infection.

Notify your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
