NITAZOXANIDE - ORAL TABLET

(NYE-ta-ZOX-a-nide)

COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Alinia

USES: This medication is used to treat diarrhea due to certain intestinal parasitic infections (i.e., Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia).

HOW TO USE: Take this medication by mouth every 12 hours for 3 days with food, or as directed by your doctor.

Children less than 11 years of age should not take these tablets. Instead, they should take nitazoxanide suspension.

Antibiotics work best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. Therefore, take this drug at evenly spaced intervals.

Continue to take this medication until the full-prescribed amount is finished even if symptoms disappear after a few doses. Stopping this medication too early may allow the parasites to continue to grow, which may result in a relapse of the infection.

Inform your doctor if your condition worsens or does not improve.
