Entamaxin Syrup 100ml

Entamaxin is a medication used to treat amoeba infections. In places where infections are not common, it is a second line treatment after paromomycin when a person has no symptoms. For people who are symptomatic, it is used after treatment with metronidazole or tinidazole. It is taken by mouth. Metronidazole is used in the treatment of susceptible protozoal infections such as amoebiasis, balantidiasis, Blastocystis hominis infections, giardiasis, and trichomoniasis; it has also been tried in leishmaniasis and microsporidiosis. Diloxanide furoate, a dichloroacetamide derivative, is a luminal amoebicide acting principally in the bowel lumen and is used in the treatment of intestinal amoebiasis in Kenya in combination with Metronidazole. Dicycloverine, also known as dicyclomine relieves muscle spasms in the gastrointestinal tract hence relieving stomachache.
