Is Albendazole effective in eradicating intestinal flukes?
Added 23 Mar 2010:
Which is the best drug in eradicating intestinal flukes and in what dosage etc. I have already taken Praziquantel and it did not eradicate flukes. I also took Albendazole at 400 mg and Vermox (on a separate occassion), and those did not eradicate the flukes. Which Drug will eliminate them completely?
Praziquantel is the drug of choice for treating intestinal flukes. The recommended dose is 40-60 mg/kg for 1 dose.
Albendazole 400 mg every 12 hours for 3 days could also be tried. (Adult dose)
