pre eclamsia treatment
I realize this answer is very, very late ... but am just searching for answers. Did you mean to say whether Praziquantel was used to treat pre-eclampsia or if it caused pre-eclampsia?
Praziquantel does not treat pre-eclampsia.
Praziquantel is an anthelmintic or anti-worm medication. It prevents newly hatched insect larvae (worms) from growing or multiplying in your body.
Praziquantel is used to treat infections caused by Schistosoma worms, which enter the body through skin that has come into contact with contaminated water. Schistosoma worms are found in Africa, South America, Middle Eastern countries, the Caribbean, and parts of Asia.
Praziquantel is also used to treat infection with liver flukes, caused by a type of worm found in East Asia. This worm enters the body while eating contaminated fish.
Praziquantel should only be given during pregnancy when need has been clearly established so am not sure whether it could cause pre-eclampsia.
