Is there any side effects of Amoebriz ?

I am an American currently living in Mexico, started having bleeding when having a BM and stools looked like worms sometimes, so the doctor here, after first treating me with a probiotic and same problem is still with me, so he said maybe a parasite and gave me Bactim and 2 pills of Amoebriz. If still sick after treatment with this to see a specialists for further tests. Just need to know side effects of Amoebriz, never took it before. I am 65 yrs old and i do suffer from diverticulitis .

Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Amoebriz is a formulatio containing Mebendazole and Quinfamide and acts against intestinal parasites and worms.Normally well tolerated in all age group but occassionally like all medicines in few people it can cause side effects like allergy to the ingredients can cause rash;abdominal pain;diarrhoea;long term use can cause neutropenia;disturbed liver functions;steven johnsons syndrome;and even anaphylaxis.Quinafamide also causes stomach upset;nausea;abdominal pain flatulence etc.Commonly side effects are not seen so you can take it and you should feel better.
Thanks
