Candistat Capsule belongs to a group of medicines called antifungals. It works by stopping the growth of fungus and treats infections of the mouth and throat. Also, it treats infections of the vagina and other parts of the body including fingernails and toenails. It kills fungi by destroying the fungal cell membrane. The fungal cell membranes are essential for their survival as they prevent the entry of unwanted substances into the cells and stops the leakage of cell contents. Candistat inhibits the production of ergosterol. Thereby, it weakens and damages the fungal cell membranes causing the main components of fungal cells to leak out. Thus, kills fungi and clears the fungal infection.
Store in a cool and dry place away from sunlight
