If you limit yourself to buying in the US, it is an expensive one for sure without a generic or compounded possibility, unless you are getting good coverage from an insurance company.

 

It is used sometimes for C-Diff, sometimes for parasites following other parasite/worm meds, and sometimes in rotation with a cyst-buster like tindamax, such as 2 weeks tindamax then 2 weeks alinia. I used it a few times but really don't remember doses, it might have been 500mg a day or 1000mg a day.

So is it an alternative cyst buster? I think that's why it's being considered, but I wanted to make sure.

My son was prescribed Alinia as an 'antimicrobial' but I believe it has several different properties so does does a lot of different things at once. This was at the end of worm/parasite treatment. Dosage was 500 mg 2xday with meals (probably adult dosage). The first time ds was on it for 14 days after worm/parasite treatment. The second time, after worm/parasite treatment again, he was on it for 4 weeks.

 

Our insurance only paid for 6 tablets! So we ordered it thru: Marks' Marine Pharmacy in Vancover BC 1-877-888-9265 and was able to get a generic version from the UK thru them for $95 for 1 month. It was way more reasonable than the US. Currently checking into getting a generic version of Valcyte (anti-viral) possibly thru them as well at 1/4 the cost of US.

 

Hopes this helps.
