My wife has been battling intestinal parasites for two

Customer Question
My wife has been...

My wife has been battling intestinal parasites for two months. She still identifies liver flukes. What drug will eliminate them?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Tired, loss sleep, etc. She has also been treated for Candidiasis

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

She has been doing coffee enemas with the Candida treatment. It is very slow and seems to go on even with that treatment. Is there something else?

Are you asking which prescription medication would help her with the parasites or are you looking for something over the counter? The over the counter stuff likely won't be very effective.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
