RATIONALE OF NOROSOL GROUP COMBINATIONS :
There have been many studies on the antimicrobial activity in vitro of Norfloxacin, Metronidazole and Tinidazole and some have been subject to detailed reviews (S.W.B. Newsom, J. antimicrob. Chemother., 1984, 13, Suppl. B,25; B. Holmes et al., Drugs, 1985, 30, 482). It has been shown that all are Bactericidal and Anti- Protozoal. Metronidazole and Tinidazole in particular are active against several protozoa including Balantidium Coli, Blastocystis hominis, Entaamoeba histolytica, Giardia intestinalis (Giardia lamblia), and Trichomonas vaginalis. (Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 29th Edition)
The point to be noted in the therapy with NOROSOL GROUP is that the basic therapy is of Norfloxacin in all cases and as an adjuvant we are including Metronidazole and Tinidazole. For Mild to Moderate Infections NOROSOL 400 mg tablets are suggested for best action. For Moderate to Severe Infections NOROSOL-M Suspension (Norfloxacin with Metronidazole) has shown to be most effective. For Severe Infections NOROSOL-T TABLETS (Norfloxacin with Tinidazole) has shown the best results.
In NOROSOL-T TAB. the half lives of both Norfloxacin and Tinidazole are quite suited to a daily dose of 2 tablets. As for NOROSOL-M Susp. it has noticed that Metronidazole has a synergistic action in conjunction with Norfloxacin and hence lower doses are most suited for Moderate Infection as are most prevalent in India. The lower dose of Metronidazole in a 12 hourly dose has shown appreciable results. Doctors are therefore requested to try the free samples given by our representatives in their patients and judge for themselves the remarkable therapeutic action of this dosage form. Kindly also note that this dosage form is the most effective in the Moderate Infections which are most prevalent in Indian Conditions.
For Pediatric Patients NOROSOL-M SUSPENSION has shown excellent to life saving response since its launch in all Moderate to Severe Infections in children. The dosage varies from 5ml three to five times daily depending upon the severity of the patient.
