What NILSTAT is used for


NILSTAT is used to treat a condition called intestinal candidiasis or thrush. This is an infection in your gut caused by the fungus Candida.
NILSTAT belongs to a group of medicines called antifungal agents. It works by damaging the cell wall
of the Candida fungus, causing it to
die. NILSTAT only works inside your gut. The amount of NILSTAT absorbed into the bloodstream is minute and therefore is not effective for treating any other infections in your body.
Your doctor, however, may have prescribed NILSTAT for another purpose. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why

Taking other medicines

Tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines, including medicines that you buy without a prescription from a pharmacy, supermarket or health food shop.

NILSTAT is not known to interact with other medicines but your doctor still needs to know what other medicines you are taking.

If your doctor tells you to take a different dose, follow their instructions.



NILSTAT- Consumer Medicine Information Page 1 of 3

How to take it

Swallow tablets or capsules whole with a glass of water.

NILSTAT can be taken with or without food.

How long to take it

Continue taking NILSTAT until you have finished all the tablets or capsules in the bottle or until your doctor tells you to stop.

If you forget to take it

If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the dose you missed and take your next dose when you are meant to. Otherwise, take it as soon as you remember, and then go back to taking it as you would normally.

Do not take a double dose to make up for the dose that you missed.

If you are unsure about whether to take your next dose, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

If you have trouble remembering when to take your medicine, ask your pharmacist for some hints.

If you take too much


Immediately telephone your doctor or Poisons Information Centre (telephone 13 11 26) for advice, if you think that you or anyone else may have taken too much NILSTAT. Do this even if there are no signs of discomfort or poisoning. Also report any other medicine or alcohol, which has been taken. You may need urgent medical attention. Keep telephone numbers for these places handy.

While you are using it



Things you must do

Use NILSTAT exactly as your doctor has recommended.

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you feel it is not helping your condition.

Always discuss with your doctor any problems or difficulties during or after taking NILSTAT.

Things you must not do

If you stop taking this medicine or change the dose, it may not work as well.

Do not use this medicine to treat any other complaints unless your doctor says to.

Do not give NILSTAT to anyone else, even if their symptoms seem similar to yours.



Side effects



Tell your doctor as soon as possible if you do not feel well while you are taking NILSTAT.

This medicine helps most people with Candida infections in the gut but it may have unwanted side effects in some people. As only minute amounts of NILSTAT are
absorbed into the bloodstream, side effects are very rare.
All medicines may have side effects. Sometimes they are serious, most of the time they are not. You may need medical treatment if you get some of the side effects.

Ask your doctor to answer any questions you may have.

Tell your doctor if you notice any of the following and they worry you:

 feeling sick or nausea

 vomiting

 stomach upset

 diarrhoea

These side effects are rare and usually occur if too much NILSTAT is taken.

Other side effects not listed above may occur in some patients. Tell your doctor if you notice anything else that is making you feel unwell when you are taking, or soon after you

have finished taking, NILSTAT.



After using it




Keep your tablets or capsules in their bottle until it is time to take them.

If you take the tablets or capsules out of the bottle they may not keep well.

Keep your medicine in a cool dry place where the temperature stays below 25C. Do not store

it, or any other medicines, in a bathroom or near a sink. Do not leave it in the car or on window sills.



NILSTAT- Consumer Medicine Information Page 2 of 3

Heat and dampness can destroy some medicines.

Keep it where children cannot reach it.

A locked cupboard at least one-
and-a-half metres above the ground is a good place to store medicines.


If your doctor tells you to stop taking NILSTAT or the tablets or capsules have passed their expiry date, ask your pharmacist what to do with any that are left over.
