Infection with Candida albicans is known as thrush.

When treating oral thrush, the suspension should be taken after eating and held in the mouth for as long as possible before swallowing.

The usual dose for adults and children is 1ml of suspension taken four times a day but this maybe reduced to 1ml once a day in the case of newborn babies.

Shake the bottle well before use. Using the measuring dropper provided, drop 1ml of suspension into the mouth four times a day. Doses should be equally spaced throughout the day.If you are taking this medicine for an infection in the mouth or throat, try not to swallow thesuspension too quickly, as the longer the medicine is in contact with the site of infection thebetter.

Your doctor will normally have given you sufficient medicine to enable you to continue treatmentfor 48 hours after all symptoms have disappeared. This will help to clear up your infectioncompletely and prevent a relapse.
