Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Cryptosporisiosis
Luvox, Flagyl And Cryptosporisiosis [posted 8/7/98]
Answer: Flagyl is fairly useless for cryptosporisiosis. Usually, the infection is self limited. There are some fairly expensive medications that we use in immuno-compromised patients, but usually only supportive treatment in immuno normal patients. As to the interaction, if you elect to take flagyl, I'd stop the Luvox. No data, but one week off the Luvox is not a big deal.
