What was the dosage?

My dosage as written on the prescription bottle was to take 1 600 mg tablet 3 X's a day for 2 days a week.
I didn't even make it to the second week. I have never been so sick in my life!! It took me a month to recover.
I later found out that some LLMD's think this med might work on lyme cysts.
I think I heard from someone else who has lyme but did not have this type of reaction.
I continue to fight parasitic infections. 3/ 2 week courses of albenza where the first course caused my liver to swell up so bad I could hardly walk. I ended my last course of albenza at the end of June and did great and thought they were gone until the symptoms and elevated EOS came back in October.
Now trying Ivermectin. The herbals that I've tried have done nothing for it.
I have the MTHFR (methylation) mutation that causes more severe parasitic infections. Perhaps that's why I can't get rid of babs or this other parasitic infection.
Anyway, be very cautious with biltricide. I would love to hear how you fare if you try it.

I took it. It didn't do a thing for my parasitic infections. Same with Albenza. Nada. Although now I have a pharmacist who looks at me verrrrry funny when I come in. LOL Guess this stuff is supposed to bepretty hard core. But as I have mentioned in eaqrlier posts, the only thing that has worked for me for flukes, etc. has been Humaworm.

The salt/c (sea salt) has worked well for me and is still working on Lyme and co.
I did take some very strong Chinese and South American herbs for 6 months before that. The drugs for parasites are very hard on the liver, that's why I never took them.
LLMD said take all three pills at once and only once. The pharmacist outer pamphlet as on the bottle take all three at once as one dose. The extra pamphlet that goes more into detail said to take 1 pill wait 4 to 6 hours take another then 4to6 hours later take the third and final pill.
I was checking on the net and most all of them say the 4to6 hour regime but there treatnig just liver flukes we think i have a tapeworm because I saw something in the bowl after you know. I have had a upset stomach and the poos once a month for quite awhile seems like about every thirty days? Stomach first burns then pinching the whole way down through then a couple of days later squirt only this time I saw a milky white stringy thing that came out of poo into a sorta ribbon translucient white floating I should of grabed it I know but this was 530am before work whish I had now. I will do this doseage this week but waiting till all mepron and clarithromycin clears out of my body.
