Members that don't mind being catechized as long as the religious art is great,
Any of you have more information on the safety of this drug?
(It's sold over-the-counter, and people take it without any worry.)

Nitazoxanide - Wikipedia

Trade names: Alinia, Nizonide, and others

"Nitazoxanide is a broad-spectrum antiparasitic and broad-spectrum antiviral drug that is used in medicine for the treatment of various helminthic, protozoal, and viral infections.[4][5][6] It is indicated for the treatment of infection by Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia in immunocompetent individuals and has been repurposed for the treatment of influenza.[1][6] Nitazoxanide has also been shown to have in vitro antiparasitic activity and clinical treatment efficacy for infections caused by other protozoa and helminths;[4][7] emerging evidence suggests that it possesses efficacy in treating a number of viral infections as well.[6]

Chemically, nitazoxanide is the prototype member of the thiazolides, a class of drugs which are synthetic nitrothiazolyl-salicylamide derivatives with antiparasitic and antiviral activity.[4][6][8] Tizoxanide, an active metabolite of nitazoxanide in humans, is also an antiparasitic drug of the thiazolide class.[4][9]"

"Salicylamide (o-hydroxybenzamide or amide of salicyl) is a non-prescription drug with analgesic and antipyretic properties. Its medicinal uses are similar to those of aspirin"

Interesting.

What is interesting is all of the anti parasite drugs work in a similar fashion on cancer. Microtubule disruption, P53 activation, and glucose inhibitor. And they WORK. Repurposing these drugs as anticancer agents has caused massive price hikes on some of the "soles" Fenbendazole is still easy to obtain since it is marketed as a canine dewormer like Panacur c. $15 for a box of 3-1 gram packets taken 3 days on/4 days off. Starting my 4th week this Sunday.

That's a joke. Where I live it's solded over-the-counter, a generic option costs less than $7.00 for 6x 500 mg (tablet), so it's like no more than $3 for that same amount.
