The active component of the Nizonide 500 pill is nitazoxanide. It is an anti-worm medication that is used to treat diarrhea in people who have G. lamblia or C. parvum worm infections.
When administered for the same infections in HIV-positive patients or those with weakened immune systems, this medication is ineffective. By reducing the growth of this infection-causing bacterium, Nizonide 500 works to stop the spread of infection. For the term specified by your doctor, take this medication as directed. Even if you start feeling better after beginning the Nizonide 500 treatment, finish the entire course of this medication.
Can I take 500 mg of Nizonide when I'm pregnant?
