Hello There. I can understand your concern. when was this stool test done and when was the diagnosis established. if it was done 4 months back and still you think after all these medicines you have worm infestation, then you may be wrong. it could be something else. you have loose stools , which could be due to even IBS. kindly consult a gastroenterologist near you for further evaluation and management. BEST REGARDS, Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Your symptoms may be more due to ascariasis. You can try tab ivermectin 0.2mg/kg orally once. Also check for liver function tests,serum amylase and lipase. I suggest you to undergo a endoscopy/colonoscopy.
