Toxoplasmosis Treatment

Patient Comments

Toxoplasmosis can be treated medically. There are several agents, usually used in combination, to treat infection by this parasite. The individual circumstances of each patient determine the optimal drug combination, dosage and duration. For example, patients who are pregnant or with HIV/AIDS require special treatment considerations. The best way to determine individual medical treatments, based on the patient health situation, is in consultation with an infectious diseases expert.
