Hello doctor,

I am a 21 year old male suffering from chronic amebiasis for the past two to three years. I had tried Flagyl (Metronidazole ), Fasigyn (Tinidazole ), Ciplox-TZ, Oflox-OZ, Bandy and many other ayurveda medicines. But, nothing seems improved. So, could you provide any other drug? Please suggest medicine to be used for amebiasis. I have taken the above medicines for the past one year.

Hi doctor,

The symptoms are sticky stools three times per day, back pain, loss of appetite and weakness. The colonoscopy and stool test were normal. But, my doctor told me that I am suffering from amebiasis. Can you tell the brand name of the medicines that you suggested above.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • It is not advisable to start such medicines without consultation as these are not first line medicines for amebiasis.
  • Does any blood test confirmed presence of amebiasis? If colonoscopy was done, then was biopsy taken along with that?
  • Sticky stool and increased frequency of stool may suggest the possibility of inflammatory bowel disease, which can be detected on biopsy.
