Albendazole is a first line treatment against pork tapeworm infections, which can cause neurocysticercosis, a condition marked by swelling in the brain, seizures and vision problems.
Albendazole can also treat dog tapeworm infestations that cause cystic hydatid disease marked by organ damage.
Albendazole is effective against flatworms that cause trematodes and fasciolosis; tapeworms that cause cysticercosis and echinococcosis; pinworms, whipworms, hookworms and other nematodes that cause enterobiasis, trichuriasis, toxocariasis, ascariasis, strongyloidiasis, trichostrongyliasis, capillariasis, cutaneous larva migrans, filariasis; and fly larvae that cause myiasis.
Albendazole treats parasitic worm infections by preventing the worm from absorbing glucose, so the parasite eventually dies.
Dosage will vary depending on patient weight and physician recommendation. The length of treatment will vary depending on the type of infection being treated.
Albendazole is usually taken two times a day with meals. Tablets can be crushed and mixed in with food or water if a child has trouble swallowing a tablet whole.
Albendazole should be taken exactly as prescribed without missing doses for the infection to clear out. Dosage should be followed even when feeling better to prevent the infection from returning.
