62 year old US citizen now living in the Philippines, has amoebiasis - for 3rd time since returning here to live - previously here for 2 years with Peace Corps (2010-2012) with only minor occurences. Also on Rosuvastatin for cholesterol and note many drug interactions - for metronidazole. However, also on citalopram which seems to interact with Ciprobet. Doctor prescribed Ciprobet, but the 14 tablet dose did not seem to get all the amoeba, which now erupt after a bite of mango for instance. Am going on vacation tomorrow and am terrified! help! (thanks!)
What is my best drug to amoebiasis, given that I take rosuvastatin?

There is a treatment for this though, which will help to cure it slowly but it is absolutely full proof and permanent.
1)For starters take probiotics like The drink yakult after food two times a day.
Or take a probiotic capsule which are supposed to be taken empty stomach. Take that pill in the morning before food and wait for at least 30 minutes before consuming any food.
2) Do not consume any food item that contains even a medium amount of fat, it will increase the infection even more, do not drink milk, coffee or even chocolate.
3) Take a lot of cold fruit juices. And a very small amount of ice cream is suggest, as cold food helps kill the protozoa.
4)Put Ice packs on your stomach atleast for 10-20 minutes in a day. If u want to. This will help in making the treatment more effective and the infection will get cured faster.
5) Consume a lot of Black tea. And eat lots of green vegetables. And eat a lot of apples and fruits.
And make sure you eat at least 2-3 bananas in a week.
This treatment is full proof but the infection will take time to get cured depending on your body and the good bacteria in your body. Try it out and this is one of the most effective and natural ways of curing this treatment. And as someone suggested below of using antibiotics, im suffering from loose motions and infections for 2 years and antibiotics have done nothing but make it worse, as a lot of antibiotics are prescribed the good bacteria which are required to reduce the infection and make us immune and improve digestion are killed to a large extent. The probiotics and good bacterial pills will improve digestion and help in speeding up the treatment.
And look for yoga exercises to improve digestion and liver functioning on youtube.com. The Results are amazingly shocking.
Get well soon for all the people with this infection.
