Nystatin, USP is an antimycotic polyene antibiotic obtained from Streptomyces noursei. Its structural formula:
C 47H 75NO 17 M.W. 926.13
Nystatin tablets, USP are for oral administration and contain 500,000 units of nystatin, USP per tablet.
Nystatin tablets, USP contain the inactive ingredients: corn starch, confectioner sugar, dibasic calcium phosphate, FD&C yellow #6, FD&C red #40, FD&C blue #2, hydroxypropyl cellulose, hypromellose, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, polyethylene glycol, polysorbate 80, talc and titanium dioxide.
Gastrointestinal absorption of nystatin is insignificant. Most orally administered nystatin is passed unchanged in the stool. In patients with renal insufficiency receiving oral therapy with conventional dosage forms, significant plasma concentrations of nystatin may occasionally occur.
Nystatin is both fungistatic and fungicidal in vitroagainst a wide variety of yeasts and yeast-like fungi. Candida albicansdemonstrates no significant resistance to nystatin in vitroon repeated subculture in increasing levels of nystatin; other Candidaspecies become quite resistant. Generally, resistance does not develop in vivo. Nystatin acts by binding to sterols in the cell membrane of susceptible Candidaspecies with a resultant change in membrane permeability allowing leakage of intracellular components. Nystatin exhibits no appreciable activity against bacteria, protozoa, or viruses.
