But if you have severe symptoms, call 911 (or your local emergency number) immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.

What should I do if I miss my dose?

There are occasions when people forget to take their medication at correct prescribed times. This may not only have an effect on potentially making the medication less effective but it may also inadvertently lead to taking doses too close together, thereby increasing the risks of side effects.

Conditions treated by albendazole

Albendazole treats various parasitic infections, including neurocysticercosis (a brain infection caused by pork tapeworm), cystic hydatid disease (caused by dog tapeworm), and other intestinal infections caused by certain parasites.

How does albendazole work?

Albendazole works by inhibiting the growth and reproduction of parasites. It prevents newly hatched insect larvae (worms) from growing or multiplying in your body. The principal mode of action for albendazole is by its inhibitory effect on tubulin polymerisation which results in the loss of cytoplasmic microtubules impeding glucose uptake by the worm leading to their immobilisation and eventual death.

Forms of albendazole available

Albendazole is available in the form of oral tablets.

Dosage of albendazole

The dosage of albendazole may vary depending on the specific infection being treated, the severity of the infection, and individual patient factors. The dose of albendazole is determined by the healthcare provider.

Directions for albendazole use

Albendazole should be taken exactly as directed by the healthcare provider. The tablets should be swallowed whole with a glass of water and may be taken with or without food. Use albendazole for the full prescribed length of time, even if your symptoms quickly improve. Albendazole tablets are normally given as a single dose.

Warnings and contraindications for albendazole

  • Albendazole may cause liver disease/problems, so regular liver function tests may be necessary during treatment
  • It may also interact with certain medications, including antiretroviral drugs used to treat HIV
  • Albendazole can cause bone marrow suppression. Patients with liver disease and patients with hepatic echinococcosis are at increased risk for bone marrow suppression and require more frequent monitoring of blood counts

Interactions with other drugs

Albendazole’s drug interactions include antiretroviral drugs, cimetidine, and dexamethasone. It is important to inform the healthcare provider about all prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications and supplements being taken.

Use of albendazole during pregnancy

Albendazole is generally not recommended during pregnancy, particularly in the first trimester. Consultation with a healthcare provider is necessary to weigh the potential risks and benefits.

Use of albendazole while breastfeeding

Albendazole should not be used while breastfeeding, as it may pass into breast milk and may have adverse effects on the nursing infant. Consultation with a healthcare provider is necessary to discuss alternative treatment options.

Possible side effects of albendazole

In clinical trials common side effects of albendazole may include abdominal pain, nausea, headache, dizziness, and temporary hair loss. Serious side effects are rare but can include liver problems, blood disorders, and allergic reactions.
