a treatment kills all living bilharzia and apparently 6 weeks later the left over eggs hatch > is this when i take 2 treatment
Here is what I found when I looked it up. For schistosomiasis, the dose is 20 milligrams/kilogram by mouth every 4–6 hours for one day. And from another source here is more:than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.
Take this medication with a full glass (8 ounces) of water.
Praziquantel is usually taken 3 times in one day. Your doses should be taken 4 to 6 hours apart on that day.
Praziquantel should be taken with a meal.
You may need to break a praziquantel tablet in order to get the correct dose. Follow your doctor's instructions.
Do not crush or chew the praziquantel tablet or portion of a tablet. Swallow the pill whole. Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
