What's the best medication for Chagas disease? I've tried Ozone treatments and mild antibiotics, but still going down hill quick! If anyone knows how to kill this off, please let me know where or how, or both! Thank you

From what I could gather, Nifurtimox and Benznidazole are the two front-line drugs used to treat Chagas disease.

Referenced from: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002348/#adam_001372.disease.treatment

Have you tried either of these medications yet? Apparently they are only recommended during the acute phase of Chagas disease. Once Chagas disease reaches the chronic phase, medications aren't effective for curing the disease. Instead, treatment depends on the specific signs and symptoms:

If you are experiencing heart-related complications, then treatment may include medications, a pacemaker or other devices to regulate your heart rhythm, surgery, or even a heart transplant.

If you are experiencing digestive-related complications, then treatment may include diet modification, medications, corticosteroids or, in severe cases, surgery.

I hope this info helps!

Have they had you try any anti-parasitic treatments?

There are several medications that have been shown to help, though a complete cure/eradication of the parasites usually only works for about 85% of people treated.
