Tindamax tablets contain an antimicrobial agent called tinidazole, a second generation manmade Nitroimidazole antibiotic. The drug is able to combat a variety of infectious protozoa. The drug was designed to be effective in the short term. Tindamax works by entering bacterial and protozoal cells and interfering with their genetic make-up. The drug damages DNA and prevents the bacteria and protozoa from forming new DNA thus killing them.
