General Information on Alinia
People who suffer from traveler’s diarrhea are often asked to buy Alinia, a Nitazoxanide containing antiprotozoal agent. This medicine is used to combat the effects of diarrhea caused by the protozoa Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia in adults, as well as in children.
It is an oral suspension drug and has been tested to be effective in the preliminary treatment procedure against chronic Hepatitis B when used for a year. It is now being tested against Hepatitis C as well.
Alinia Side Effects
This medicine is usually well tolerated by most people. Side effects rarely manifest and are usually not severe. The side effects related to Alinia are usually related to intestinal problems. While the drug gets rid of diarrhea, there may be some pain in the abdomen, headache, nausea, and vomiting. Allergic reactions toward this medication are rare, but if any allergies manifest, the person is most likely to feel some swelling in the face, tongue, and lips. A hives outbreak and breathing difficulty may also be experienced. If allergic reactions occur, the patient should stop using the medication immediately and get in touch with their doctor.
Nitazoxanide can cause serious allergic reactions in some people. In case you are allergic to the drug, let your doctor know. Diabetic patients should take this medication with caution since it contains sucrose, a kind of sugar. Those with kidney problems or liver disorders should also let their doctor know of their medical condition before being asked to buy Alinia. People with bile secretion problems and gallbladder problems, immune system complications, or HIV should also use this drug with caution.
Women who are pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or are breastfeeding should inform their doctor before starting a course of the medicine.
This is an oral medication, and Alinia 100mg is administered for three days at 12 hour intervals, along with food. This is the usual prescription unless your doctor decides otherwise. Children younger than 11 are not prescribed this medicine since it is not suitable for them, so they are given Nitazoxanide suspension instead.
Since Alinia is an antibiotic, each dose should be evenly spaced out so that the medicine is most effective. The medicine should be continued till all symptoms of the illness disappear because even though the signs of the illness may be gone, the parasites keep growing within the body. Stopping the medication in the middle of its course may result in the relapse of the infection, but in case the condition worsens, the doctor should be informed. In case you miss a dose, it is better to skip it; otherwise, it can be harmful for you.
Your doctor should be informed of any other medications that you are taking before deciding on the dosage of Alinia. Prescription drugs, non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements can affect the effectiveness of Alinia.
This medication should not be used with other medicines, and neither should it be used at any time later on without a doctor’s prescription. Buy Alinia online if you have a prescription from your doctor.
