Thanks for your question.
Normally for treatment of this condition especially when this condition is severe then diflucan is prescribed in a dose of 200 mg orally on day one, and then followed by 100-200 mg once daily for 7-14 days.
Your doctor has prescribed chronic suppressive therapy which is taking fluconazole 3 times weekly, but the dosage recommended normally for this type of therapy is 100 mg. However please take this medication as prescribed by your doctor since this has very few side effects. Therefore to answer your question your prescribed medications are sufficient for treatment, and with treatment this will go away faster and in at least a week of treatment.

The daily dosage is for a one time cure (which is 100 mg daily). The dosage which your doctor has prescribed is for maintenance therapy, which is actually 100 mg 3 times weekly. And your doctor has prescribed 150 mg which is more than normally recommended dosage for such a therapy and is more than sufficient. Nystantin does make a difference and is in fact the drug of choice for oral thrush. All these medication will definitely treat the infection. Please take them as prescribed by your doctor.
Regarding this you need to ask your doctor since if there is no indication for you to swallow and the infection is limited to your mouth, then your doctor may suggest to spit it out.
