This is in response to your PM to me. Am posting on the forum since other members may benefit from an alternate drug treatment for chronic helminth infections.
Since you've battled roundworms for an extended period of time with hit-and-miss results, it's possible your parasites have mutated or become drug-resistant.
Also, your chronic eye infection may indicate a lingering tapeworm co-infection.
In cases such as yours, I recommend rotating drugs & attacking them via other pathways.
The drug Nitazoxanide/Alinia is a thiazolide antiparasitic agent that shows excellent in vitro activity against a wide variety of protozoa & helminths, including roundworms, tapeworms, filariasis, & strongyloides.
I'd really value you your insight into my parasite battle
I picked them up in 2012 after a 3 month long antibiotic course. Started expelling sesame seed looking things, and eventually with the help of medicines, roundworms. I took herbs which scattered the infection everyone, including ear canals and eyes.
In 2012 I did my first 3 courses of albendazole/ivermectin w/no visible evidence of clearance except for one night I took 3mg of ivermectin alone and expelled tons of fat roundworms. Im not sure why it worked that night and not the others. I have also done tapeworm/fluke protocol.
I had given up for a while until at the end of 2014, started up albendazole again and to my surprise, this time it seemed to expel quite a lot of roundworms from the GI tract. On other days though, it didn't seem to work as well. For example, the first night I resumed albendazole I expelled tons of them, nothing for another 8 days (though I could tell they were alive and well), and again once more. Also occasionally ill get one stray big adult. I'm not sure why this is because the infection is still present
Whenever I go off the meds, all symptoms seem to return worse than before, the grumbling in my stomach, hunger, systemic wiggling, etc. No medicine seems to affect the eye ones either, or their eggs
I've taken a month and a half break from all meds except ivermectin (though I wasn't dosing properly) got my liver checked before resuming, and am on day 7 of a new cycle of albendazole. I want to extend the courses. Would 3 1-month long courses w/2 weeks in-between each cause resistance as you mention in the protocol? What would you recommend?
