I don't believe there is any scientific evidence that Nitozaxanide assists with treatment for Cyrpto. 

Most people rid the parasite after a brief period but your weakened immune system is delaying this.  Staying hyrdrated and increasing your CD4's is the recommended course.  Adding an anti diarrhea medication might also be needed to reduce dehydration.

Take care and best wishes.

To steal someone else's comment;  "how long is a piece of rope"?

There are too many variables to accurately predict the course of your CD4 increase.  Length of infection, VL, genetics...etc. 

Some respond quickly to medication and have awesome results quickly, while others of us take a LONG time to reach ok numbers.

I was in the hospital for almost 2 months with Cryptosporidium Muris. Was treated with Paromomycin (Humatin). Doctors told me that the Paromomycine was their last "rabbit in the hat" .   I'm talking about 1996.
