Re: Albendazole & Ivermectin Treatment Protocol for Strongyloidiasis
The duration/frequency of treatment depends on your condition. If it's uncomplicated strongyloides infection, that should work.
For hyperinfection/disseminated disease the recommendations I've found are continue taking ivermectin until the infection is cleared.
I've been taking ivermectin for three weeks now and albendazole for one week. I think I'll be done next week. If not, I'll have to stop taking them anyway because I don't particularly want to fry my liver. So I'll take a break and do it all again.
Life cycle is 28 days in uncomplicated infection.
What are your symptoms?
Mine included crushing chest pain, swollen lymph nodes on my head, hair loss, stopped sweating, retained a LOT of water, swollen belly, joint pain, skin issues that wouldn't heal, blurry vision, intensely itchy rashes that started between my fingers and spread all over my body followed by 'lines' of rashes - larva currens rashes. Those are absolutely the worst.
