question about nystatin - please help! :)

i took a tiny tiny quantity of nystatin last week. Like 10mg. not much. afterwards i felt loopy, tired and had indigestion. 48 hrs later i had a bowel movement and when i wiped there was a lot of mucus. now several days later i am still passing hard stools ever since i took the nystatin. does this sound like a normal reaction to nystatin? i havent taken it since and am not sure if i should continue - thanks so much

I take nystatin all the time and have never had any reaction to the drug. Who prescribed it for you? Can you call them and ask them about it or ask them to change your drug.. plenty of antifungals treat candida.

My Nystatin is "swish and spit", rather than swish and swallow. Since it has lidocaine in it, I am not supposed to swallow it. What does yours say?

Re: question about nystatin- please help! :)

Nystatin doses taken orally are ordered in units, not mg. Did you take a medicine that was made to take orally?
