Hello, thank you for reaching out to us regarding your concern about Albendazole tablets.

From what I understand, Albendazole is used to treat neurocysticercosis (infection caused by the pork tapeworm in the muscles, brain, and eyes that may cause seizures, brain swelling, and vision problems). Albendazole is in a class of medications called antihelmintics. It works by killing the worms.

To start any new medications, you may need a consultation with a doctor first, we need to know about your health status and other related conditions to determine wether this tablet is suitable for you or not.

I would highly recommend you to speak with our doctor via teleconsultation who can assess your health status.

I hope that I managed to give you the answer you’re looking for. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Thank you.
