Alodok, I want to ask about worm medicine. Is it OK to take Albendazole like a worm medicine that is routinely taken every 6 months? Suddenly I was presented with Albendazole for consumption, but when I searched, it was more of an infection than a routine worm medicine. Please educate me.

1 Answer:

Hello Lia,


Thank you for the question.

Need to clarify, who gave you the medicine?


Albendazole is one type of anti-helmintic drug that is useful in treating worm infections, especially cysticercosis and echinococcosis. This drug works by damaging the cells in the intestine of the worm, thus causing the worm to not absorb nutrients properly and eventually die.


Albendazole can be used as a curative measure (ie to cure worm infections that are happening) or preventive (ie to prevent worm infections in the future, usually consumed every 6 months). But clearly, albendazole is not appropriate to be consumed carelessly without a prescription and direct supervision from a doctor.


Therefore, in connection with your question, if you can get the medicine directly from your doctor, you should take it as suggested by the doctor who examined you. But if it turns out that the one who gave the medicine was not a doctor, you should not take it first, and check yourself first to the doctor huh ..


I hope this helps.
