What is Satrogyl (Satranidazole) used for?
Satrogyl (Satranidazole) is an oral antibiotic used to treat protozoal infections. The medication destroys or immobilizes the organisms allowing them to be excreted out of the system. It is normally prescribed to treat trichomoniasis, periodontitis, amoebiasis, or liver abscesses. Your physician may prescribe it for other unlisted purposes, as well.
How should I use Satrogyl (Satranidazole)?
Satrogyl (Satranidazole) is normally taken once or twice each day at a dosage of one tablet for a cycle of medication lasting one or two weeks, but your particular instructions will depend on the condition being treated, your current health, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be swallowed with a large glass of water and may be taken with or without food. Never crush or split the tablets to avoid unintentionally destroying or altering the effects of their contents. Do not stop taking the medication before being told to do so, even if your symptoms have disappeared, as the infection may be gone and can return stronger or more resistant to treatment.
