It starts working with the first pill.
I read that it takes around five to seven days. I picked up my prescription yesturday and took it then as well. Itching is better today but not completely gone. Albenza works by preventing the worms from taking in glucose which is how they survive and they eventually die out from not being able to get sustenance from it. It doesn't work immediately, they will slowly die so you just have to wait a few days and stay in contact with a doctor. It will also help to eat less sugar in your diet for about a week.
I took mine on the 28th of July and i still feel a little itching on the 2nd of August. So it's working for sure but i dont think it's done
