Nizonide 500 is an antiprotozoal and antiviral drug that is primarily used to treat diarrhoea caused by parasitic infections of the intestine (Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia). Nizonide 500 Tablet 6 also treats protozoa infections caused by single-celled parasites found in moist environments such as lakes, streams, and soil. Diarrhoea is a condition that causes the passing of loose or watery faeces on a regular basis.
Nizonide 500 Tablet 6 includes Nitazoxanide, a thiazolide medication. Nitazoxanide is a broad-spectrum anti-parasitic drug. It inhibits the production of chemical substances required for energy metabolism and the growth of protozoa, helminths (worm-like parasites), anaerobic (microbes that survive without oxygen), microaerophilic (requires little oxygen to survive), and viruses. Nitazoxanide is effective in the treatment of gastrointestinal infections.
