Potential Risk for Carcinogenicity
- Carcinogenicity has been seen in mice and rats treated chronically with metronidazole, another nitroimidazole agent. Although such data have not been reported for tinidazole, the two drugs are structurally related and have similar biologic effects. Limit use of TINDAMAX to approved indications only. Avoid chronic use.
- Use should be reserved for conditions described in indications and usage
