Why recurring?: Issue might be why you get recurrences. Contaminated well water? Drink from streams when backpacking? Sexual activity (oral/anal)? Are you sure that it is giardiasis causing the problem? Immune disorder (iga deficiency, hiv)? See infectious disease doc if recurring or rx is not effective.
