Alinia (nitazoxanide)

prescribed for giardia ## The price of Alinia (nitazoxanide) is more than I can pay. I have taken many rounds of drugs for h-pylori that I've had for over 4 years. Please help! ## Alinia is an antiparasitic medication that is used to treat various parasitic infestations that cause diarrhea, as deemed appropriate by your doctor. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and stomach pain. Ann, why has this been prescribed for H. Pylori? Have they made sure that it is still present?

C-Diff

I have had c-diff for 10 mos now. I started on flagyl, did a combo of Flagyl and Vanco, and spike treatments of Vanco at 125mg and 250mg. I recently heard that a Gastro doctor prescribes a drug called "Alinia" for his pediatric patients. I only heard the name, is this the right drug??If it is would I be a candidate for it??Do you combine it with Vanco ? I heard it kills the spore, but I thought that wasn't possible. ## Alinia contains the active ingredient Nitazoxanide and it's only listed as being effect against Cryptosporidium and Giardia, so it's not used to treat Clostridium Difficile. You can learn more about C Difficile and the treatment options here: Does anyone else have advice or ideas to add?
