Tapeworm infection Albendazole Zentel

Uses
Zentel (Albendazole) is an anthelmintic (anti-worm) drug that is used as a treatment for certain tapeworm infections (such as neurocysticercosis), as well as other infections caused by parasitic worms. This medicine works by preventing the growth of newly hatched worms in the body and killing the worms responsible for the infection. Other used include treating giardiasis, liver fluke, microspordiosis and other conditions.

Dosage and Administration
Zentel (Albendazole) tablets contain 400mg of the active ingredient. This medicine can treat a wide range of infections, and because of this, the dosage required can differ for each individual. In all cases, a medical assessment is necessary to determine the required dose. Adults treating neurocysticercosis caused by tapeworm are sometimes told to take 400mg twice per day, together with a meal. The prescribing doctor will determine the length of time for which treatment is required. The treatment period can range from 8 to 30 days.

Patients affected by ascariasis and trichostrongylosis may be told by their doctor to take a single 400mg dose. It is possible that adult patients who are undergoing treatment for giardiasis will be instructed to take 400mg by mouth, once per day, with treatment lasting for a period of 5 days. Other conditions may require different dosage regimens, and in all cases patients must only take the amount prescribed by their doctor.

Side effects
Patients taking Zentel (Albendazole) may experience side effects, such as:

  • Headache
  • Vomiting
  • Spinning sensation
  • Pain affecting the stomach
  • Hair loss that is temporary

Patients should tell their doctor if any side effects occur when taking this medication. Although less common, there is still a possibility of severe reactions occurring. You will need medical attention immediately if you notice fever, bleeding, peeling of the skin or any other symptoms indicative of a serious reaction.

Precautions
Patients who are undergoing treatment for neurocysticercosis may be prescribed other drugs by their doctor to prevent their nervous system from becoming damaged.

This drug can reduce the blood cells which the body needs to fight off infections, which may result in it being easier to bleed or get sick. Regular blood tests may be required during treatment.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Zentel (Albendazole) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
  • If you are using any supplements, vitamins, or herbal products of any kind.
