Giardiasis Medications and Treatment
Medications are used effectively to treat giardiasis.
Pregnant women with giardiasis are treated somewhat differently because of the possible risk to the fetus by some of the medications.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends for daycare outbreaks that all employees and children improve their hand washing techniques and sanitation. All children, workers, and family members with symptoms of giardiasis should be treated. Children and staff members should be kept away from the center until they no longer have symptoms.
