Nizonide Oral Suspension is an antiparasitic medication that is used in the treatment of diarrhea and worm infections in children. It inhibits the growth of the parasite thereby treating the infection.
Nizonide Oral Suspension can be given orally, either before or after food. Prefer giving it after food to prevent chances of stomach upset in your child and to enable better absorption of Nizonide Oral Suspension. The usually prescribed frequency is two times a day. However, this may vary depending upon the type and severity of the infection as well as your child’s body weight and age. Therefore, stick to the dose, time, and way as prescribed by the doctor. If your child vomits within 30 minutes of intake, repeat the same dose but never double up the dose if it is time for the next dose.
Some children may develop minor and temporary side effects after taking this medicine. These include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, headache, dizziness, urine discoloration, and mild skin rash. These side effects usually go away once your child’s body adapts to the medicine. However, in case these side effects persist for long or start bothering your child, you must consult your child’s doctor without any delay.
Do inform your child’s doctor if your child has a heart problem, blood disorder, liver impairment, kidney malfunction, any chronic illness, or history of any prolonged antibiotic course. The doctor must also be aware if your child has ever had any previous episode of allergy. All this information will guide the doctor in planning your child’s overall treatment.
