  • Mech of action

    Ciprofloxacin is bactericidal against enteropathogens like Shigella, Salmonella, E coli, C jejuni, Vibrio cholerae etc.It acts by inhibition of DNA synthesis. Tinidazole is a potent anaerobicide. It is also effective against Entameba & Giardia. It acts by damaging DNA strands. This combination has the advantage of being effective against both bacteria & protozoa. Entameba requires normal faecal flora for its survival; ciprofloxacin kills the pathogenic intestinal bacteria & alters intestinal flora, & tinidazole directly eradicates Entameba. This combination can also be used in other systemic infections caused by susceptible organisms.
