Alinia is a nitrothiazolyl salicylamide (synthetic) derivative agent. It is an anti-protozoal drug. The drug is used for treating diarrhea which is caused due to Giardia lamblia, as well as Cryptosporidium parvum. The drug is used for the treatment of adult patients as well as pediatric patients who are > 1 year of age. Generic drug’s effect is a result of its interference with the electron-transfer reaction, which is dependent on an enzyme known as PFOR (pyruvate ferredoxin oxidoreductase). Thus, the drug exhibits its anti-protozoal activities. Cheap Alinia is available in any pharmacy but requires a prescription from the doctor.
