Furazolidone Tablets are an antibiotic drug used to prevent and treat bacterial infections.

Furazolidone is classified as a nitrofuran antibiotic. It works by interfering with the enzyme system of bacteria, but the mechanism of action against protozoa isn't well understood. This drug shows efficiency towards certain strains of Giardia, Vibrio cholerae, Trichomonas, Coccidia, and many strains of E. coli, Enterobacter, Campylobacter, Salmonella, and Shigella.
