I took Praziquantel for Clonorchiasis, but I have not seen Clonorchis sinensis in my stool. Should I be able to see it, or do they die in your liver?

Too small to see: The eggs of the liver fluke are released into the stool. The eggs are approximately 20 microns in length & 15 microns in width, so not really detectable by visual examination of the stool. The good news is that the 3-times-daily-for-3-days regimen of praziquantel is more than 90% successful at curing a clonorchiasis infection. If there is any doubt, could verify by rechecking stool at some point. ...Read more

I would like to know what the effects of and overdose of amoxicillin are for a 6 yr old girl? The amoxicillin is for two different children of different ages and my daughter just drank 3bottles that were almost full.
