What warnings can my pharmacist give me about diet and tinidazole?

Your pharmacist is one of your best resources on possible dangers between tinidazole (Tindamax) and any foods and beverages. With this drug, grapefruit or grapefruit juice shouldn't be taken at the same time as your medicine. It's therefore wise to avoid grapefruit altogether. If you can't, try to minimize your intake of grapefruit products while on tinidazole. Also ask how far apart the drug and these food products need to be taken. Do not take liquid medications or beverages that contain ethanol within three to five days of tinidazole.
