Albendazole is a medication used to treat a variety of parasitic infections, including infections caused by tapeworms, roundworms, and hookworms, among others. Albendazole works by interfering with the metabolism of the worms, which can lead to their death and elimination from the body.
Albendazole is usually taken orally in tablet form, and the dosage and duration of treatment can vary depending on the type and severity of the infection. Side effects may include nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, among others. It is important to consult a healthcare professional for appropriate diagnosis and treatment of parasitic infections and to follow their instructions for taking medications such as albendazole.
