What is Fasigyn (Tinidazole) used for?
Fasigyn (Tinidazole) is an oral antibiotic used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. It operates by destroying or slowing the reproduction of bacteria cells allowing the immune system to control or eliminate the infection naturally. This medication is commonly prescribed to treat infections of the blood, abdomen, digestive tract, respiratory tract, urinary tract, vaginitis, or to eliminate Helicobacter pylori from the stomach. Your physician may also prescribe it to treat other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Fasigyn (Tinidazole)?
Always follow your physician's instructions while using Fasigyn (Tinidazole) to get the most effective results from treatment. One tablet is normally administered once or twice daily for a period of medication lasting one or two weeks, but your individual directions will depend on the condition being treated, your current health, and the severity of your symptoms. The tablets should be swallowed with a full glass of water along with a meal to prevent nausea. Never stop using the medicine before being instructed to do so, even if your symptoms seem to have disappeared, as the infection may not be gone and can return stronger or more resistant to treatment. Do not split, crush, or chew the tablets to avoid unintentionally destroying or altering the effects of their contents. Ask your pharmacist or physician any questions you have about the medicine to make sure you are using it correctly.
