No it is not.
Zpack is an antibiotic.
Thrush is a fungal infection.
In fact Antibiotic like z pack can worsen oral thrush.
So it should be avoided.
oral thrush is commonly treated with antifungal medications.
Nystatin swich and swallow is commonly used.
Oral fluconazole tablets daily can be tried if nystatin does not work.
Please see your doctor today for the prescription.
