Two simple and sensitive visible spectrophotometric methods (A and B) have been developed for the quantitative estimation of nitazoxanide, in bulk drug and pharmaceutical dosage forms. Methods were based on the formation of reddish yellow coloured and green coloured chromogens, which were measured at 544 nm and 715 nm, respectively. The results obtained with the proposed methods are in good agreement with the labelled amounts when tablet dosage forms were analysed.
