Yes, as unorthodox as it sounds, it is the exact same. 100% Nystatin powder. Yellowish. I’ve gone through 3 of them. It’s also great for enemas.

Thank you Ruffian for that information. From all the research I’ve done, it seems like it is 100 percent nystatin, just labelled differently and it is also a ton cheaper than nystatin.

I just ordered some tonight. I’m glad to hear it is working well for you. I cannot wait to try it.

I am not recommending this to everyone. Obviously others will feel differently about this but for those who cannot find a doctor to prescribe prescription antifungals. This is an option.

It has been known for a long time big pharmacy makes a lot of prescription drugs for sale for animals that are identical to human drugs and even have to pass the same quality control in the same labs.

I cannot guarantee this for medistatin but it sounds like it is very much the same but again. Use at your own risk.

Thanks again Ruffian. This is an interesting option for some willing to try it.

oh one last thing, the kind I’m getting is 400,000 IU and 100 gram container. What is the dosage you take? I’ve read 1/8 teaspoon per 4 oz of water? 3 to 4times a day. Is that what your normally take? How about for a 2 quart enema bag. Thanks

What!?? People have to scour the world looking for a doctor to prescribe this and yet my pigeon can get this shit over the counter? Wish I knew about this 2 years ago.

That is about what I take….1/8 teaspoon 3-4 x daily. Sometimes I do a little over an 1/8, closer to a 1/4 and when I take the higher amount I only do it 3 times a day. My enema bottle is small so usually add 1/4 teaspoon in it. If I eat a particular food that is questionable I always try to take a little of the powder with it. Just in case. The candida book I’m reading now was written by a lady who had MS and she took Nystatin for 3 years with no problems.

1 tsp is roughly 5 grams. At 400,000 iu per gram, 1 tsp is about 2 million iu. 1/8 tsp is therefore about 250,000 iu. If one iu of Nystatin is the same as 1 USP unit of Nystatin, then 250,000 iu is a very low dose. Willam Crook, MD, author of “The Yeast Connection”, would start patients out at 1 million USP units 4 times a day. A quick search online reveals that an iu is usually, but not always, equal to a USP unit. If the units are in fact the same for Nystatin (needs to be confirmed), then 1 million USP units would be 2.5 grams (0.5 tsp) of Medistatin.
