About NOR TZ TABLET

NOR TZ TABLET belongs to the group of medicines called antibiotics used to treat diarrhoea and dysentery of bacterial, amoebic or mixed origins. Diarrhoea is a condition which is characterized by loose and watery stools. Dysentery is an inflammation of intestines accompanied by bloody diarrhoea.
 
NOR TZ TABLET is a combination of three drugs, namely: Norfloxacin, Tinidazole, and Lactobacillus. Norfloxacin prevents the bacteria from repairing and reproducing themselves. Tinidazole kills the bacteria by damaging their DNA. Lactobacillus helps balance the number of beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract (gut) to manage water loss (diarrhoea) due to antibiotics or infections. 
 
You can take NOR TZ TABLET with or without food. Swallow NOR TZ TABLET as a whole; do not crush or chew it. In some cases, NOR TZ TABLET may cause certain common side-effects such as abdominal cramps, nausea, headache, dry mouth, and dizziness. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.
 
Consult your doctor if you experience pain in tendons, swelling, and inflammation as NOR TZ TABLET is associated with an increased risk of tendon rupture and tendonitis. Maintain a minimum gap of two hours between NOR TZ TABLET and antacid, vitamin and mineral medicines containing zinc and iron. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. NOR TZ TABLET may cause dizziness and vision problems, so be cautious while driving. 

Uses of NOR TZ TABLET

Diarrhoea and dysentery

Medicinal Benefits

NOR TZ TABLET belongs to the group of medicines called antibiotics used to treat diarrhoea and dysentery of bacterial, amoebic or mixed origins. NOR TZ TABLET is a combination of three drugs, namely: Norfloxacin, Tinidazole, and Lactobacillus. Norfloxacin prevents the bacteria from repairing and reproducing themselves. Tinidazole kills bacteria by damaging their DNA. Due to antibiotic intake, a large amount of beneficial bacteria gets destroyed, so Lactobacillus helps in balancing the number of beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract (gut) to manage water loss (diarrhoea) due to antibiotics or infections. Lactobacillus also helps in the treatment of diarrhoea (water loss) and cramps caused due to harmful E. Coli bacteria. NOR TZ TABLET is a broad-spectrum antibiotic which is effective against a wide range of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.

Directions for Use
