Biltricide (praziquantel) for Schistosoma haematobium: “I tested positive for bilharzia I was give six of Biltricide - those bad boys I guess because I weighed 155kg. It’s a tough one, they had me dizzy and sleepy and disoriented luckily I took them at night . Remember guys this stuff is strong I couldn’t taste or feel my mouth or throat when I swallowed but as the sleep set in all was well in the morning .”

For Paragonimus westermani, Lung Fluke: “This patient in our clinic was diagnosed by our lab technicians of S. haematobium and paragonimus westermani in his urine. When he was given Praziquantel, he said he realized some greenish substance coming out when he was urinating after drug administration. This however, disappeared in 3 days. This could be the result of the disruptive effect of the drug on the calcium homeostasis of the parasite. Specialists, am I right?”
