Metodine DF Syrup Uses

Metodine DF is an antiprotozoal medication used to treat and prevent infections caused by protozoa, a type of microscopic parasite that can infect the intestines. It is commonly used to treat amoebiasis, a parasitic infection of the intestines caused by Entamoeba histolytica, and other intestinal infections caused by protozoa.

It contains Diloxanide which works by inhibiting the growth and replication of the parasite in the intestines. It also contains Metronidazole, which helps kill the parasite by interfering with its DNA.

This medication is only effective against infections caused by protozoa and is not effective against bacterial infections or viruses.
