JA: The Doctor can help. To begin, what are your symptoms? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: i'm using ovex for two years (every two months or so) now and still not working...also many years ago I was told that I might have some worms or parasites that are making me keep loosing weight like in a week I can loose 5 kg if...and then I m trying to eat alot and take supplements and put my weight back...but is so exp0ensive; also, I m always bloated no matter what I eat

JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Doctor should know?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
also why is ovex not working for me?

Best test to check for parasites and worms is the stool test to check for ova, cyst, eggs or parasites in stool test.

If you have done the test, it is positive. You need antibiotics for it. Metronidazole/Albendazole are the best medicine for this.

I am so sorry that you are going through this. These are the best medications and they will kill all the parasites in your gut. And you will be fine.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
aaa...ok, thank you...I know this is not our problem but why UK only sells ovex and they are saying that you don't need anything else...even the GP told me the same...strange country

I am sorry but this is not rightly done by GP. You need medicine for it.

Do you have any other questions?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
that is why I still have problems with the parasites...I didn't know that albentazole is antibiotic...thank you for your life saving answer
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I'm happy with the answer...but where do I find Metronidazole/Albendazole? not in the uk...

Would you kindly rate this consult 5 star rating, please. It would be highly appreciated.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I will and also give you an extra 5 £
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
just that and I m happy...where do I find Metronidazole/Albendazole?

Thank you so much. You would need a prescription for it. Just call your GP and tell about the result. He will surely send prescription to nearest pharmacy.
