Albex (albendazole) is a potent anthelmintic medication used to rid the body of a wide variety of parasitic worms. This product's active ingredient is also used in veterinary medicine to eradicate worms.

Albex should not be used while pregnant or breastfeeding, as it is known to be harmful. It can be used in young or elderly patients with doctor approval and involvement; this is a powerful medication that can cause a range of serious complications.

How It Works

The medication helps eradicate worms in several ways:

  • Outright kills some species of worm
  • Weakens or stuns other species, causing them to be expelled from the body
  • Inhibits worm reproduction
  • Prevents eggs from hatching

With mature worms eliminated and no more eggs being produced, Albex finishes the job by ensuring existing eggs are unable to hatch into larvae. The overall goal of eradicating the parasitic infection is thus accomplished.

Albex is effective against a wide range of parasites:

  • Taenia solium, the "pork tapeworm"
  • Echinococcus granulosus, the "dog tapeworm"
  • Giardia parasites, which cause "beaver fever"
  • Encephalitozoon cuniculi, a parasitic fungus
  • Nematodes (roundworms)
  • Trematodes (flatworms)
  • Pinworms
  • Tapeworms
  • Hookworms
  • Other parasitic worms

In many cases parasitic worm infections can be very difficult to identify; even if worms are visible in stools, correctly identifying the precise parasite involved can be borderline impossible for the average person. Patients who suspect parasitic worms should have the condition verified by a doctor, as it is extremely difficult to form an optimal treatment plan otherwise.

Optimal treatment is important not just to quickly eradicate symptoms. Like bacteria, viruses, and fungus, parasitic worms can quickly develop resistance to treatments if not ideal or not fully completed. While Albex is very good at eradicating many types of parasites---particularly Taenia solium (pork tapeworm) and Echinococcus granulosus (dog tapeworm)---it is not necessarily the best choice for all parasitic worm infections. A doctor can recommend the best treatment choice.

Taking Albex

Albex comes in tablets, which should always be taken with food.

There are numerous personal variables that can influence treatment in addition to the type of parasite causing the infection; age, weight, other medical conditions, and so forth should all be taken into consideration while forming a treatment plan. Again a doctor is best able to do so and patients are strongly encouraged to consult a doctor prior to starting Albex.

Depending on the type of parasite, treatment may range from a single day to several months. It is nearly impossible to summarize the vairable treatment for the many types of parasitic worms; however, for its two most common uses---treating pork tapeworm or dog tapeworm---there are rough guidelines for otherwise healthy adults.

For hydatid disease (dog tapeworm):

  • The standard dose is 400 mg taken twice per day, for a total daily dose of 800 mg.
  • Treatment should continue for 28 days.
  • After 28 days, treatment should stop for 14 days.
  • This should be repeated for a total of three 28-day cycles.

For neurocysticercosis (pork tapeworm):

  • The standard dose is 400 mg taken twice per day, for a total daily dose of 800 mg.
  • Treatment should continue for 8 to 30 days.

While many patients complete treatment without any ill effects, it's also not uncommon for patients to develop a range of unpleasant symptoms as the medication begins to destroy parasites, including:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Gastric pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue

The above symptoms may be side effects of Albex, but they're also consistent with the death and elimination of parasites regardless of what particular treatment is used to kill them. Either way, if these symptoms become serious enough to be disruptive a doctor should be consulted.

Potential Complications

Individuals thinking about taking Albex should be aware of some of the more serious risks associated with treatment:

  • Immune function may be impaired, increasing risk of infection.
  • Blood clotting may be impaired, increasing risk of bruising or bleeding.
  • Patients treating neurocysticercosis should also be treated with corticosteroids and anticonvulsants to avoid potential neural complications.
  • The medication can cause serious harm to unborn babies. Care should be taken to use effective birth control for the duration of treatment and at least one month after treatment ends.

Taking the above into consideration, patients may not want to take Albex if:

  • The immune system is already compromised or exposure to contagions is likely.
  • There is a history of bleeding or blood clotting issues.
  • There is a history of unrelated neural conditions.
  • Pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to conceive.

The above scenarios do not necessarily preclude Albex use, but risks should be carefully considered. Albex is an effective medication but it's not the only such treatment; a doctor may be able to recommend a more suitable option for individual circumstances.

Do not hesitate to contact a doctor with any questions or concerns that may arise during treatment.
