    Default Nystatin side effects?

    Tweety is more fluffed today, not feeling well at all, much worse. I'm wondering if it's the Nystatin causing some GI upset. Anyone ever had a bird not feel well on it? It can cause GI upset in humans.

    My vet mentioned ACV, but said it doesn't work as well as Nystatin. I left a msg. for him to call me. Hopefully he'll call soon.

    Anyone used ACV for a yeast infection, and it worked?

    omg, now he's tail bobbing. This bird has been through so much.

    My vet should call soon, unless he's running over schedule. They close at 5.

    Oh no! Please let us know what you hear. I have no experience with Nystatin. Hang in there, Tweety!

    Still waiting for him to call. I hope it's just the Nystatin making him feel so much worse. He's miserable. He's sitting fluffed, closed eyes, shivering and tail bobbing. He's very weak. He's wobbly. He'll soon be sitting on the bottom of the cage. I'm going to move him to the smaller cage.
    I hope he hasn't developed a respiratory infection. His little body can't take anymore antibiotics. He's been on so many that they've just about killed him now. He has no gram positive or gram negative bacteria, yeast overgrowth and possible kidney damage.
    I hate watching him suffer. If this continues I'll have to make a decision for him like I did for little Piglet.

    I know you know this, but am just saying "just in case,"...put him in a small, warm, darkish cage in a very quiet room. A heating pad on top of the cage can help. Also, a warm mist humidifier can also help retain warmth and help him stay hydrated while you wait for the vet to call. You and Tweety are in my prayers.

    ACV does work but not as well as a real medicine of course. There has been success with "low level" infections but if the infection is bad then the medicine should be used.

    Any word from the vet yet?

    Debbie,
    I am going to move this to the 911 section in case it might catch someone's attention that has experience with this. Hang in there...HUGS!

    Haven't heard from the vet yet. He must have really gone over schedule. Or has an emergency in his office.

    I don't know how bad the yeast is John, I'll ask the vet when he calls.

    Thanks for moving this Kristen.

    Aww poor guy. I've only used Nyastin once but didn't find it helped much.
