General Information On Albenza
Albenza is used to treat specific parasitic infections. The generic name of the drug is Albendazole. It is used to treat diseases caused by pork and dog tapeworm. The medication is available in the form of a tablet. Albenza works to stop the glucose intake of worm species. The worms die because they are not able to get enough energy for survival. You can buy Albenza if you or your child is suffering from parasitic infections. However, a consultation with your doctor is necessary before using the drug to decrease the risk of side effects and to ensure it is the proper treatment for you.

Albenza may cause less serious side effects such as nausea, stomach pain, vomiting, temporary hair loss, dizziness and headache. The drug may also cause serious side effects such as unusual weakness, sore throat, body aches, severe blistering, fever, or a red skin rash. Immediately notify your doctor if you experience any severe side effects after taking the medication. It is not necessary that every patient taking the drug will experience side effects. Many patients taking Albenza do not complain about any side effects.

You should not take Albenza if you are allergic to any ingredient in it or to similar medicines such as Vermin. The drug may not be right medication for you if you suffer/have suffered from specific medical conditions. Your doctor may have to adjust the dosage or perform special tests to determine if the drug is safe for you. You should inform your doctor about your medical history, especially if you’ve had liver disease or if you have undergone any abnormal liver function test. Albenza may cause harm to an unborn baby, so pregnant women should not take this drug. Women should use birth control methods during treatment and continue using them for one month after the treatment ends. Nursing mothers should talk to their doctor before taking Albenza. The drug may also decrease you body’s capacity to fight infections. Therefore, you should not miss any scheduled visit with your doctor. You should buy Albenza only if your doctor has prescribed it for your treatment.
Albenza comes in Albenza 200mg tablets. The dosage of Albenza depends on the weight of the patient, medical condition, and response to treatment. A patient suffering from hydatid disease caused by dog tapeworm may need to take 400mg of Albendazole twice a day with meals. The treatment is given in three cycles. The patient is given a recommended dose for 28 days. This is followed by a 14 day drug-free interval. Patients suffering from neurocysticercosis (caused by pork tapeworm) are required to take a 400mg dose of Albenza twice a day with meals for 30 days. Your doctor will give you specific instructions regarding the dosage. You should not stop taking Albenza during these days as it may cause the infection to return.
Albenza can interact with other drugs and cause side effects. The drug may interact with Dexamethasone, Cimetidine, Praziquantel, Theophylline, and several other medicines. You should inform your doctor about every drug you are taking, which includes prescription, non-prescription, and herbal drugs or supplements.
