I am taking bitricide for Bilharzia.
I have taken 3.5 tabs x 3 times today - can i take anymore?
Hello,
Welcome at JA.

for bilharziasis the recommended doses is 20mg per kg of body weight.Its mean that if your weight is 70kg then your total dose is 1400mg .This should be taken at about 4 hour apart but with in 6 hour.

Hope this will help you.

I realise that and that is what i have done but i really would like to kill the parasites once and for all and therefore want to know if my doctors recommendation of 3.5 tabs x 3 times for 3 days will do me any harm?

I replied to you and never heard back!

Hello,
Sorry for my bioavailability as Iwas unable to see the reply.
The lethal dose of bitricide is more then 2000mg so the doses given to you will not harm you.
But please take care and consult to your doctor if you feel excess of joint pain,abdominal pain etc.
Hope this will help you.
