Cyclospora Infection Treatment
Diagnosis is important because for this parasite only one combination drug is the treatment of choice, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole 160/800, oral tablet, twice a day for seven to 10 days. Some immunocompromised patients may require longer treatment. If an individual is allergic to this drug, alternative antibiotics may be successful. However, these people should be evaluated by an allergist, or an infectious-disease expert.
