"I think that it has turned my lips black, unless there's something else wrong. I don't know. I love the medication. It really works and right away. My mouth, throat, and chest stopped hurting after taking it twice. I have coughed up blood before I started this medication. My cough is better also. I just can't figure out why my lips are black. I go to the doctor this week for a biopsy, so, I'll show the doctor."

Nilstat (nystatin): "The Nilstat cleared up the white spots in my mouth within 2 days and my throat was less sore so that I could start eating solid food for the first time since radiation treatment.(10 weeks) On the third bottle but have not fully cleared all the thrush from my throat. I have had Chemo. radiation and heaps of antibiotics so I am a hard case for it.."

"63 yrs old, was prescribed liquid, 120.00 nystatin, 100,000 unitls/ml, 2 tsp., for 4 times a day as needed, for thrush that was in throat, and I believe going into esophagus. Was not in mouth this time (had it 6 yrs ago). Read where hydrogen peroxide kills it, and had been using toothpaste with hydrogen peroxide in it, so wasn't on tongue. But throat hurt, was actually coughing up blood in sputum. Only two doses and throat and chest doesn't hurt, coughing has lessened, and I believe bleeding has stopped! Notice the dose is for kids, but I'm 63. But it is working! Could hardly swallow, hurt so much. Not hurting so after only 2 doses. Amazing medicine! Was given 3 day supply."

"I had to take this medication for oral thrush after a couple of rounds of antibiotics. Unfortunately the oral nystatin suspension gave me a terrible allergic reaction. I developed a very itchy body rash (hives) so I never got to find out if the nystatin would have worked for the oral thrush."

"I've been using Nystatin suspension to cope with the oral thrush I get from all of the Prednisone I have to take. I've got systemic lupus and my kidneys went and started to fail. The prednisone is a life saver for me, but the thrush hurts. Thanks to the nystatin, the thrush is coming under control. My only gripe is that the nystatin is starting to make me nauseous, really nauseous. I don't need EXTRA nausea. Between the lupus and the prednisone, my stomach is already hooped. I DO love how fast the nystatin got started on giving me relief from the thrush, though. I can sing again!"

"My father, a brain tumor patient, had oral thrush, which is very common for those taking long-term Dilantin. This swish-and-swallow medication worked wonders for him, within about 3 days. Be sure to take it for the full prescription period, usually 14 days. Also, the longer you can hold the gargle, the longer the contact between drug and organisms. Thrush can also move from the mouth into the throat, and it can recur quickly, so out of sight doesn't necessarily mean anything. Again, take it for the full period recommended by the doctor."
