I was on Doxy for 10 weeks, Omnicef for 8 weeks, and Nystatin for 10 weeks from August to mid-October this year. I felt well when I took three of them.
My LLMD told me to take Nystain for extra 30 days after off abx. However, I always felt dizzy after meal for about 2 hours when I was taking Nystatin along. So I went to see my primary car doctor. He told me to stop Nystatin and he tested my blood sugar. It is 100 aftor fasting.
I feel much better after stopping Nystatin, 95% normal. I know it is just over the normal (70-99). But my blood suager was perfect before, only 75 for the past two years and I am not even 40 years old. So that was a big jump.
I am wondering if this is related to abx and Nystatin? Any comments?

Hi Mip,
I've found this:
Where it makes the following statement:

For diabetic patients:

  • Although rare, the corticosteroid in this medicine may cause higher blood and urine sugar levels, especially if you have severe diabetes and are using large amounts of this medicine. Check with your doctor before changing your diet or the dosage of your diabetes medicine.
