I am terrified of my meds not working. I am terrified of passing the worm. I have heard horror stories. Oh god I'm having a panic attack. My cat had tapeworms and a week b4 she ws diagnosed I noticed worm like things. Coincidence. Ribbon flat but prolly 1 mm wide and an inch in length. Obvious segments. But they would my dr give me Albenza (and only 2 2oomg tabs?) When I've heard people taking meds daily for weeks? And why not gove me Biltricide which is praziquantel..the known tapeworm med. Please help I'm freaking out so much he gave me some clonopin to calm down but still. Its gunna take weeks to come out??why does it say it treats infections caused by tapeworm? It doesn't kill it?? Omg panic attack please help.

Hello. Looks like you got overlooked. How are you doing now? Tapeworms are scary creatures. I am afraid of very little but that is one that freaks me out. So I get the panic you feel. However, the reality is you got it. And you can get rid of it. Hope you have called the doc or a pharmacy to get better info on this drug. There is a chance the doc wrote the wrong med down. Ask him/her and see what is what. We can scare ourselves better than the condition. Taking action will get rid of a lot of the anxiety. Hoping all is going better for you.
