Re: Help me get rid of Flukes!
Hi, treatment depends on which type of flukes do you have. I had intestinal flukes and I treated them with praziquantel which I took for a very long period in heavy doses.
Now I assume that I have liver fluke (more likely Fasciola hepatica) and I can't wait to order Nitazoxanide.
It's the only effective drug against liver flukes. They don't respond on Prazi and can be tolerant to Triclabendazole.
Got this information from the article:
"Children diagnosed as positive to liver fluke infection and/or to intestinal protozoans and helminths were treated with a course of nitazoxanide of 7.5 mg/kg of body weight each 12 hours (in breakfast and dinner) during seven days. This dose was considered adequate to treat the different protozooses and helminthiases found and the low intensities of the latter, according to the instructions of the medicinal product manufacturer. Post-treatment follow-up was made weekly until disappearance of parasite
stages in stools, including blood testing focusing on eosinophilia and anaemia, and additionally negativization of coproantigen test results in the case of fascioliasis, for which a second treatment course was needed only in a relatively few cases."
