Description

  This review suggests that although nystatin is effective prophylaxis and treatment for oral candidiasis in immunocompetent individuals, the effect of nystatin for prophylaxis or treatment of oral candidiasis in immunodepressed individuals is no better than placebo and inferior to fluconazole. Nystatin should not be used for prophylaxis or treatment of oral candidiasis in immunodepressed individuals.
