Administration of Drug
Patients should be told to take Tindamax (tinidazole) with food to minimize the incidence of epigastric discomfort and other gastrointestinal side-effects. Food does not affect the oral bioavailability of tinidazole.
Patients should be told to avoid alcoholic beverages and preparations containing ethanol or propylene glycol during Tindamax (tinidazole) therapy and for 3 days afterward because abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, headaches, and flushing may occur.
Patients should be counseled that antibacterial drugs including Tindamax (tinidazole) should only be used to treat bacterial infections. They do not treat viral infections (e.g., the common cold). When Tindamax (tinidazole) is prescribed to treat a bacterial infection, patients should be told that although it is common to feel better early in the course of therapy, the medication should be taken exactly as directed. Skipping doses or not completing the full course of therapy may (1) decrease the effectiveness of the immediate treatment and (2) increase the likelihood that bacteria will develop resistance and will not be treatable by Tindamax (tinidazole) or other antibacterial drugs in the future.
