How should I take nystatin liquid?

Take nystatin liquid exactly as direceted by your doctor. Typically, this will be three to five times a day for a mouth infection and three times a day for an intestinal infection. First, shake the bottle to mix the medication evenly. Hold a half dose in each side of your mouth, or swish it around your mouth for a few minutes, before swallowing or spitting as directed by the doctor. If you have an intestinal infection, you can just swallow the liquid you measured.
