I have not had personal experience with this problem but from all the posts I have read it seems you are doing things just right.
One thing that has been suggested to help is a couple hours after giving the meds, give her some yogurt. It contains the good bacteria gliders need in their digestive system that the meds might kill off. Besides, if your glider is like mine, she'll love it!
Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.

Giradia is spead through the glider's wet droppings. So, the glider's cage along with all it's accessories need to be washed in very Hot water with 10% Bleach and an antibacterial soap. Rinse thourghly and then dry. As to things made of material...wash in very Hot water with antibacterial soap, then rinse and dry in a hot dryer.

Keep cage and all things very clean inside it. IF need clean the area several times during the evening and morning of any fecal matter.

Wash your hands well with a good antibacterial soap and hot water after handeling the glider.

If you have more than one glider...all need to be treated to avoid further outbreaks of Giardia from cross contamination.
