I use symbicort inhaler for my asthmah which containes formoterol, known to cause thrush. I didn't always rinse my mouth as directed after inhaling and caught thrush. My doctor prescribed Nystatin and the thrush has cleared up within a week. I will continue to take this until the big bottle is finished. I don't find the taste unpleasent at all, as other have stated.

I had treatment for lymphoma and developed thrush as a side affect of the treatment used. The thrush was very annoying and painful and the nystatin cleared it up quickly
