Reviews for Albendazole
Albenza (albendazole) for Pinworm Infection, Enterobius vermicularis: "My son, husband and I all took this and it certainly works! Yuck! We knew we had them, but we were even blowing them out of our noses, eeeuuu, so gross! Side effects have been all had a rash, 2 had/have headaches, 2 GI upset with diarrhea, & all 3 spent more time in the bathroom then we want to admit even here. Is it worth it? YES, yes it is, especially if you consider the thoroughly disgusting alternative."

For Cutaneous Larva Migrans: "treatment with zentel (albendazole) very effective with 27 parasites dug out of leg between ankle and knee.No side effects,B/p normal and diabeties type 2 not affected,took 3 pills then 2 weeks later a follow up dose of 3 more pills.No biopsy could get a diagnosis.Very happy with treatment as 7 different creams worked for 2 days each then itch all the time and no sleep."

For Ascariasis: "Works fairly well when taken for 20+ days, and prescription is repeated at least a few times in close succession to reach all life cycles and those pockets which have poor circulation. According to the NIH coinfection is much more common than non-coinfection, perhaps this is the reason such a broadbased anthelmintic has so many success stories. Combined with praziquantel is best."
