Hi everyone,
I am going to find out for sure if my giardasis is cleared..I started on flagyl 250 mg, then humatin and unfortunately I don't remember the third drug I took..went back to flagyl..the tropical disease specialist put me on Quinacrine Hydrochloride 100mg three times daily. I noticed a difference..no more of that gut pain..I had it for six months..apparently it treats malarya..
Anyway, wanted to share..I wanted to find the right answer and I found all these sites frustrating..hopefully you read this and consider this..

Hey, I am new to the forum. I have been experiencing some crazy symptoms since I got back from the Virgin Islands and the dr.'s really have not helped me out at all. I drank some unfiltered water when i was on a boat in the Virgin island from its holding tank.(Just to brush my teeth though)
Two weeks after returning from my trip I had crazy horrible, yellowish diarrhea two weeks. Followed by stints of feeling extreme hunger and feeling very full even if I had nothing to eat. I have been on an antidepressant for years so the diarrhea wiped that out of my system and I had really rough withdrawl symptoms, confusion, shaking, etc... I just convinced my doctor to give me a prescription for Tinazdonle. I am starting on tinidazole 500 mg for three days. Hopefully it works... I have been going through hell the last 6 weeks. I have headaches, heart pulpitaions, stomach pain, fatigue, nausea, difficulty urinating, and loss stool. I have been pooping around 7-8 times a day.
The dr. seem so clueless. Does this sound like giardia? I already tried a round of metronidazole for 7 days, I felt better for two days and then got way worse. Any suggestions, should I try to go to a

Yes, It sounds like it but there are many other things that do the same symptoms. Has your doctors done any tests at all? If not find a good Gastroenterologist and start the process of diognostics. Cyclosporiasis is also a bug that you can get on fruit and salads. There was an outbreak of cases this past summer
