Oflin Tz Tablet Description

Oflin Tz Tablet is a combination of Ofloxacin and Tinidazole, which are antibiotics used to treat bacterial and parasitic infections. It is used for conditions such as giardiasis, amebiasis, vaginal

infection, kidney or bladder infection, and respiratory infection. Symptoms of infection may include fever, chills, tiredness, vomiting, and stomach upset. Ofloxacin works by blocking DNA enzymes to kill and prevent the growth of bacteria, while Tinidazole reduces the nitro group to destroy bacteria's DNA. Before taking Oflin Tz Tablet, inform your doctor if you have genetic disorders, seizures, muscle weakness following antibiotic treatment, diabetes, abnormal blood pressure, heart disease, kidney diseases, intestinal inflammation, severe skin problems, muscle-weakening diseases, nerve pain, liver disease, or psychiatric illness. It is not recommended for use in pregnant or breastfeeding women. Common side effects may include changes in taste sensation, nausea, weakness, stomach upset, vomiting, weight gain, headache, dizziness, difficulty sleeping, itching, diarrhea, or constipation. Contact your doctor if any symptoms worsen.
