Re: Egaten/Triclabendazole

I had no knee pain; mostly the usual abdominal pains and eventual mild gallbladder attacks from stunned f. hepatica moving out of my liver.

One side effect that was not a side effect but a die-off effect that I did have that is not normally associated with tricla -- but makes perfect sense -- was of lung-fluke die-off. That manifested as a rapid-onset bout of spitting compulsively from a constant tickling sensation in the back of my throat. I filled a quarter of a coffee cup with what I can ony describe as lung-fluke spit-up. (The sputum was yellowish, then light tan -- no doubt from blood -- and extremely thick, to the point I had to yank string of it off my lips manually at times. It was also quite bubbly.)

That went on for a few hours. I then started coughing, and had that "must hack for my very life" sensation of when you really need to get something out of your lungs/throat. Finally, up came two big, greenish ovals that I spat onto a paper towel. When I went hunting for image matches online at the CDC parasite Image Library, my specimens perfectly matched the posted photos of lung-fluke ova. I also noticed some lung flukes plastered on my stool a few days later -- they look like bright red blood blotches, about the size of a nickel and perfectly flat and damp-looking.

So the tricla mostly gave me die-off symptoms of f. hepatica, which I was hoping for, and also killed some lung flukes my prazi dosing had not; an un-guessed-at side benefit. Well worth the spitting/coughing. That only lasted one evening, anyway.
