Antiprotozoals for Giardiasis
Why It Is Used
These medicines are used to treat certain bacterial and parasite infections. They also are an effective treatment for giardiasis infection.
These medicines may be used if stool analysis or other testing shows giardiasis infection is present.
If your doctor thinks that your symptoms are caused by giardia, he or she may prescribe one of these medicines even before your test results are back.
