Tindamax is an oral tablet made up of an amebicide antibiotic called tinidazole. This medication is also known as Fasigyn internationally, and can be purchased as the brand choice in 500mg!
Tindamax is used to treat bacterial infections, such as infections caused bacteria in the intestines and in the vagina. It will also help treat sexually transmitted diseases that are caused by bacteria. Bacterial infections are cause by microscopic organisms called bacteria and can affect any part of the body. Some commonly known bacterial STDs include chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. Bacterial intestine infections include bacterial gastroenteritis, food poisoning, and E. Coli (which can cause an infection of the intestines).
Tindamax (tinidazole) is effective at treating bacterial infection because as an amebicide antibiotic, it is able to help fight off the bacteria in the body causing the infection. By doing this, it allows the immune system to work easier and faster.
