I have taken zentel 400 for 10 days for ascaris. I finished 4 days ago but symptoms still prevail. Any reason for this?

RE: Zentel: I would agree that a 10 day course of zentel is longer than usual, and should have treated the ascariasis. I would submit another stool specimen for bacterial culture, along with ova/parasite exam. I would strongly doubt ascariasis is an active problem at this time and attempt to exclude other problems. Gastrointestinal input with possible colonoscopy might be of benefit. Good luck. ...Read more

No such thing: There are many, many different worms, and each class has its own specific best agent. There isn't one that will work for every worm, because that insinuates you don't know what the worm is; I would definitely get evaluated by a doctor to see what these worms could be.

So here's the treatment: 1/week for 3 weeks (>2yrs). ...Read more

Persistant diarreah for week strait. Fullness, bloated. Only stops w/ anit-diarreah medicine. I hope this isn't worms. Is it? I haven't seen one.
