How can parasitic infections be treated?

I have had parasitic infections before, but was not treated as one dose of several meds at once. I was treated with daily meds for 2 months before the parasites had died. Since my case was hard to treat, is this one time treatment really going to be successful?Tracy

Hello,my name is dr.Dorina Gurabardhi.I understand your concern.

The treatment of a parasitic infection should be repeated thre times in an interval of 21 days.The one time treatment is not sufficient.

Hope my answer was helpful.If you have any other question Ill be glad to help.
