Table of contents:

Tindamax is an antibiotic medication used to treat sexually transmitted infection caused by bacteria and parasites, including bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis, giardiasis, and amebiasis. Tindamax contains an active ingredient called tinidazole. Tinidazole is a nitroimidazole antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth and spreading of these microorganisms.

Tindamax treats only certain bacterial and parasitic infections. It cannot be used for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using Tindamax when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.
