Description

Why use Nizonide for intestinal parasite infection?

Nizonide is a broad-spectrum anti-infective drug. It is used for the treatment of diarrhea caused by the parasite Cryptosporidium parvum or Giardia.  It can effectively control the growth and the spreading of a wide range of protozoa, anaerobic bacteria and helminths. This medication is prescribed for both adults and children who are at least 1 year old.

How does Nizonide work?

Nizonide contains Nitazoxanide as an active ingredient. It works by interfering with the conversions of chemicals in the protozoan cell in producing energy. This stops the growth of the parasite that causes diarrhea. Nizonide is the first-line treatment against infections caused by Giardia.
