If you’re going to take one, the consensus among the members seems to be that Nystatin is the best.

Nystatin and Diflucan are 2 of the more common antifungals prescribed. Nystatin impacts fungus local to the GI system whereas Diflucan targets the fungus systemically. I have used both and found Diflucan to be more effective. Candida researchers such as Dr. Crandall recommend the use of both on a long-term basis; as they complement each other.
In terms of cons, some people contend they are harsh, especially Diflucan, on the liver. I believe, and I think the evidence corroborates, this is not the case.

One of the downside with prescription antifungals is that it can cause the candida to go deep into the body and thus its hard to destroy it when this happens. If it goes deep into the body, it can then thrive on specific organs potentially, such as ovaries.
Additionally, another downside is that it costs a lot if not covered by insurance, and there are side effects like all medications.
