CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

ACTION:

Furoxone (furazolidone) has a broad antibacterial spectrum covering the majority of gastrointestinal tract pathogens including E. coli, staphylococci, Salmonella, Shigella, Proteus, Aerobacter aerogenes, Vibrio cholerae and Giardia lamblia. Its bactericidal activity is based upon its interference with several bacterial enzyme systems; this antimicrobial action minimizes the development of resistant organisms. It neither significantly alters the normal bowel flora nor results- in fungal overgrowth. The brown color found in the urine with adequate dosage is of no clinical significance.
