Does anyone know anything about Antibiophilus (lactobacillus) or Parasitin? My wife’s brother in law is a pharmacist and he and his wife own a couple of drugstores in Tainan. They keep giving my wife drugs to administer to our 3 year-old daughter.
Each time I have no idea what the drugs are and I’m adamantly opposed to even opening the bottles as: (a) there’s nothing wrong with our girl’s health, and (b) the drugs have no English explanation, and © I have no confidence whatsoever in my sister in law or her husband. No, that’s giving them too much credit. I think they’re complete morons and incompetent parents. (They left their daughter FT with the grandparents for the first 3 years, rarely visiting, they haven’t done such a swell job since taking her back, and their daughter consequently has serious behavioral problems, but that’s another story.)
Fortunately, my wife recognizes that her brother in law’s a dummie and she has some respect for my healthy suspicion. So I believe she’ll refrain from feeding the unknown, unprescribed, unneeded drugs to our girl until I report back. So that’s why I’m here.
My initial research reveals that antibiophilus, of which they gave us 2 bottles of 250mg capsules is for acute diarrhea. In other words, it’s completely off base; our girl is not suffering from diarhea at all. :loco:
But apparently Taiwanese have a thing for it, as a google for antibiophilus 250mg turns up almost all Taiwan websites:

What’s the deal? Why are Taiwanese fixated on this anti-diarrhea medicine?
As for Parasitin, here’s a dealer selling the exact stuff they gave her and what that dealer says about the stuff:
[quote]It is highly likely that you are infected by one or more of over 1000 known parasites. Unfortunately, most parasiticides are highly toxic and specific for only one particular parasite. The ingredients in this Multi-Dimensional formula support the bodies abilities to naturally:
- Help attack and remove most major gastro-intestinal parasites, including tapeworms, roundworms, flukes and protozoans
- Help remove the temporary and toxic levels of ammonia secreted by dying parasites
- Help alleviate any feelings of nausea or headache caused by dying parasites. [/quote]

WTF? Sounds like complete BS. And again, another intestinal disorder elixir? Is this a common fixation of the Taiwanese or a madness particular to my inlaws? :loco:
Now I just hope I can convince my wife to respect my better judgment and inquiry over that of her wacko relatives (always hard to know). Or at least for now I can just throw out the drugs.
