Interesting article published in India on gerd and eh treatment suggesting "that the length of treatment of protozoal in­fection should not be less than one month and not for three or 7 days as suggested in western text books." This study claims successful treatment with 1-2 months of metronidazole, though I can't see the dosage used. Anyone try taking an antibiotic long term besides iodoquinol for 20 days? Any thoughts?

I am sure they are closer to the treatment length than Western Med - some recommendations say as little as 3 days which seems absurd  -   another factor would be with the sole use of metronidazole (Flagyl) in which in some variants of e histo can have resistance to, so perhaps if the right drug combination would be used then a shorter course could be administered.
