[b]Hi, could you tell me how I should correctly take oral Nystatin Powder to treat yeast infections? I have lost my doctors instructions and now he is retired and unavailable.

User avatar Hi korby,
Nystatin powder is used on the skin not ingested by mouth. If you are referring to Nystatin swish and swallow (liquid preparation, oral suspension, to be taken by mouth) the usual dosage is 5ml four times/per day.
