    Albenza is a reliable medication available as 200 mg standard tablets and approved by the FDA to treat the following parasitic infections:

    bullet_ball_blue Cystic hydatid disease of the lung, liver, and peritoneum resulted by dog tapeworm larvae;
    bullet_ball_blue Parenchymal neurocysticercosis caused by the active lesion and pork tapeworm larvae.

    This medication also has off-label uses because doctors often prescribe it to treat different infections caused by other parasites.

    Possible Albenza Side Effects

    They happen rarely, and most of them are mild. When taking this medicine, a few patients may experience the following side effects:

    bullet_ball_blue Stomach pain and liver problems;
    bullet_ball_blue Vomiting and nausea;
    bullet_ball_blue Dizziness and headache;
    bullet_ball_blue Meningeal signs and fever;
    bullet_ball_blue Increased intracranial pressure;
    bullet_ball_blue Reversible hair thinning and loss.

    If any of these unwanted symptoms get worse, it’s necessary to call your doctor at once. Furthermore, there are some very rare severe side effects that can be resulted by this treatment, including:

    bullet_ball_blue Blood disorders and itching;

    If you notice any of these troubling symptoms, report them to your doctor, stop taking Albenza and get emergency help when needed.

    Recommended Albenza Doses

    The right dosing of this medication depends on a specific parasitic infection that must be treated. For young children, tablets can be chewed, crushed and swallowed, while adult patients are advised to take this medication with meals. To treat hydatid disease, it’s necessary to take Albenza for 28 days, and regular doses are calculated based on the body weight of each patient. To treat neurocysticercosis, the right duration of any treatment ranges from 8 days to 1 month. Most patients are prescribed with corticosteroids and anticonvulsants, too, and their regular doses also depend on their body weight. When it comes to pediatric patients, they doses vary, and they can be prescribed only by qualified doctors.

    Mechanism of Action

    How does Albenza work? This medication is an oral anthelmintic agent with a broad spectrum of action. It’s often taken to eradicate different parasitic worms from the human body, and it’s very effective when treating different infections caused by a number of parasites, including roundworm, pork tapeworm, threadworm and others.

    After its oral administration, its active ingredient prevents the formation of microtubules in the cells of parasites. They are found in both host and parasite cells, because they are necessary for their survival. They serve different functions, including organizing intracellular structures, cell division and intracellular transport. Albenza works by effectively destroying these microtubules, and that’s why it was approved by the FDA to treat parasitic infections 20 years ago.
