Albendazole is a drug from the group of benzimidazoles. Its principle of action is to inhibit the absorption of nutrients by worms, causing the worms to die and be excreted in the stool.
The extent to which albendazole is absorbed from the digestive tract into the blood vessel system depends on whether this anthelmintic is taken during the meal and on the composition of the food.
Albendazole should always be taken exactly as your doctor has told you. Take it orally with meals (morning or morning and evening depending on the dosage), preferably with a glass of water. The dosage and duration of treatment depends on the type of worm infestation.
Treating a dog or fox tapeworm infestation is more time-consuming. Albendazole should be taken twice a day for 28 days, followed by a 2-week break. The treatment cycle should be repeated one more time. If necessary, a third treatment cycle is added. For other worm infections, the duration of treatment is usually 3 or 6 days.
