General Information on Tindamax
The generic and chemical name of Tindamax is tinidazole and it falls under the class of antiprotozoals. Tindamax is effective in the treatment of various infections caused by amoebae, Giardia, and Trichomonas. Besides this, Tindamax can be used as an antibacterial agent as well. Tinidazole is also a good alternative for patients who have a known intolerance to metronidazole. You can buy Tindamax online as per your doctor’s prescription if you have conditions like giardiasis, trichomoniasis, bacterial vaginosis, and non-gonococcal urethritis. Oral Tindamax is the drug of choice for moderate to severe intestinal diseases. The desired effect is to either provide symptomatic relief, a microbiologic cure, or a reduction in the transmission (in the case of trichomoniasis). Both sexual partners should be treated simultaneously even if one partner is asymptomatic. The half-life of Tindamax is around 12-14 hours.
Side effects of Tindamax
The most common side effects of Tindamax are constipation, diarrhea, dizziness, body aches, decreased appetite, change in taste, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and fatigue. Patients should seek medical help if these side effects persist or worsen. The severe side effects of Tindamax include hives, chest pain or pressure, dyspnea on exertion, face swelling, fevers or chills, seizures, or bleeding. Patient should seek the immediate attention of their doctor if any of the above-mentioned symptoms surface. These is not a complete list of the side effects of Tindamax.
Carcinogenic properties of Tindamax have been reported in animals like mice and rats. Due to these potential risks, you should buy Tindamax only after consulting your doctor about the risks and benefits of this drug. It is advisable for patients to discontinue the medication if they suffer from seizures or numbness and paresthesia in any extremities. Tindamax should be used with caution by patients with blood disorders as it may result in leukopenia and neutropenia. In case of a pregnancy, Tindamax is not to be used within the first three months. Pediatric patients should be monitored closely if treated with Tindamax for more than 3 days.
This drug is available in Tindamax 250 mg (pink and round) and Tindamax 500 mg (pink and oval) strengths. It is recommended to be taken with meals to reduce the incidence of gastric problems. For patients who have a problem swallowing tablets, Tindamax should be given in crushed form mixed in artificial cherry syrup. The recommended dose of Tindamax for conditions like trichomoniasis, giardiasis, amebiasis, and bacterial vaginosis is 2g for 3 to 5 days.
Alcoholic beverages and preparations containing alcohol should be avoided for 3 days following the completion of Tindamax treatment. Patients are on anticoagulation with Coumadin or protime should be monitored. Antifungal agents like fluconazole tend to increase the half-life of Tindamax, resulting in decreased clearance. When used concomitantly with Tindamax, phenobarbital and Rifampin result in increased elimination and decreased plasma concentrations. No formal drug interaction studies have been conducted on Tindamax, though the above-mentioned interactions have been reported with metronidazole, a chemical similar to tinidazole. Inform your doctor about all the drugs you’re using before you buy Tindamax to be on the safe side.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
