Re: Taking the Triple Drug Therapy for Blastocystis
Yes. No problem at all.
I got my test results back from Dr. Amin's lab in Arizona and everything came back normal. This was a little concerning given my belief of blasto or d fragilis (the more I read, the more I think it's d fragilis then blasto) based on all of the literature I have read.
However, after reading up on badbugs, I should note that I only stopped taking heavy dosages of Tinidazole about 6 days prior to my samples. I'm pretty sure this, combined with the fact that these parasites
are not always present, has altered my test results.
So, nonetheless, I will be taking the triple therapy. I felt better for a very short period on Flagyl and Tinidazole certainly made my symptoms much less tolerable. I haven't been taking any meds and I've been miserable. I cannot wait to start the treatment.
Long story short, FedEx India had told me the meds (specifically Secnidazole and Diloxanide Furoate) would arrive from India in 2 days to my cottage in Washington state -- where I was staying for July 4th. This did not happen and the meds have since been rerouted to LA. I should be picking them up tomorrow and plan on starting the treatment at lunch time. Per coralreef's advice, I'll be taking it every 8 hours.
I'll be sure to post updates along the way.
