Nystatin Cream - Overview

Nystatin is a medication used in the treatment of various types of fungal infections when the infection is strongly suspected to be caused by a fungus susceptible to nystatin. People who might need a nystatin prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe nystatin medication, including nystatin cream, nystatin powder, nystatin ointment and oral nystatin suspensions, when appropriate to do so.

What Is Nystatin Used For?

Nystatin prescription medication, marketed at times under the brands Mycostatin, Nystop, Nyamyc and Nyata, is a medication used in the treatment of certain fungal infections, including various Candida infections, thrush, diaper rash, and yeast infections. Nystatin's mechanism of action involves binding to ergosterol in the cell membranes of fungi. In doing so, nystatin medication creates holes in the membrane and causes ion movements which destroys the fungus. Nystatin is made by a bacteria known as Streptomyces noursei and is considered an ionophore medication.

Nystatin - Dosage and Cost

Nystatin prescription medication is often prescribed in 100,000 units / gram dosing although the final regimen is determined by the prescribing medical provider. Nystatin cream, powder and ointment are meant to be used topically and are applied one or more times per day. One 30 gram tube of nystatin cream 100000 units / gram is affordable, costing $10 or less at many pharmacies. Nystatin ointment and cream coupons are sometimes available online and some insurance plans may cover any costs associated with a nystatin prescription.

Can I Buy Nystatin Cream Online?

In the United States, nystatin medication requires a prescription from a medical provider to be dispensed by a pharmacy. One cannot just buy nystatin online or get nystatin OTC (over the counter). As such, the initial step to getting nystatin prescription medication is consulting a licensed medical provider. People in need of nystatin cream or powder, however, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe nystatin medication, including nystatin ointment, nystatin powder, nystatin cream and oral nystatin suspensions, when appropriate to do so.

Nystatin - Side Effects

All nystatin forms, including, nystatin cream, nystatin ointment and nystatin powder, can cause side effects when used. When used topically, nystatin prescription medication can cause local irritation, redness, itching, pain and poor taste. When taken orally, nystatin medication can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Like other medications, nystatin ointment can also cause hypersensitivity and allergic reactions and should not be used by people who have had those reactions in the past. Nystatin and alcohol should not be used at the same time. Prior to nystatin prescription medication use, questions and concerns about nystatin medication should be directed to one's pharmacist and medical provider.
