TINIDAZOLE - ORAL
COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Tindamax
USES: Tinidazole is used to treat certain types of vaginal infections (bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis). It is also used to treat certain types of parasite infections (giardiasis, amebiasis). It belongs to a class of antibiotics known as nitroimidazoles. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria and protozoa.
This medication only treats bacterial and protozoal infections. It will not work for virus infections (e.g., common cold, flu). Unnecessary use or misuse of any antibiotic can lead to its decreased effectiveness.
HOW TO USE: To prevent stomach upset, take this medication with food as directed by your doctor. Your doctor may direct you to take a single dose or take it once daily for 2 to 5 days. Dosage is based on your medical condition, the type of infection being treated, and your response to treatment. In children, the dose is also based on weight. Most adults will need to take more than 1 tablet for each dose. Follow the doctor's directions closely.
If you have trouble swallowing tablets, the tablets may be crushed and mixed in food, or your pharmacist can make a suspension in syrup. If your pharmacist has prepared a suspension, shake the bottle well before each dose.
Tinidazole works best when the amount of medicine in your body is kept at a constant level. If you are taking this drug for more than one day, take it at the same time each day.
Certain medications may decrease the absorption of tinidazole. If you are taking cholestyramine or colestipol, wait at least 2 hours after your tinidazole dose before taking either of these products.
Continue to take this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a short time. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection.
Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
