My husband had thrush after a cystectomy . It was
with this or is some other medication he is taking causing this?
Probably the symptoms are related to a side effect of Nystatin.
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Nystatin is an antifungal medication.
It is prescribed by the doctor to treat the yeast infection and it is a very effective medication.
Nystatine is bitter and has a foul taste.
This may be the cause of the change of taste of your husband.
This side effect will go away after the treatment with Nystatin.
So, I recommend to continue the full cycle of treatment as prescribed by your doctor.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Yes, your husband can use nystatin suspension for the thrush infection.
Your husband can use Nystatin suspension to treat the thrush infection.
I also recommend to use daily probiotics for better treatment.
Wishing you all the best.
Take care dear,
