ALBENDAZOLE+IVERMECTIN belongs to the class of medications called ‘antihelmintic’ used to treat parasitic worm infections. Parasitic worm infections are intestinal worm infections that are caused by the ingestion of contaminated food and water. ALBENDAZOLE+IVERMECTIN can be used to treat infections caused by roundworms, hookworms, threadworms, whipworms, pinworms, flukes, and other parasites.
ALBENDAZOLE+IVERMECTIN contains ‘albendazole’ and ‘ivermectin’, which work by keeping the worm from taking glucose and depleting its energy levels, leading to its immobilization. Ivermectin can kill the parasites by acting on the nervous system. It starves the worms by inducing paralysis, consequently leading them to death.
You should take this medicine as prescribed by your doctor. The common side-effects of ALBENDAZOLE+IVERMECTIN are stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, decrease in white blood cell count (leucopenia), vision problems, confusion, weakness, and difficulty walking. Inform your doctor if any of these side effects persist or get worsen.
You should not take ALBENDAZOLE+IVERMECTIN if you are allergic to ‘albendazole’, ‘ivermectin’, or any other ingredients present in it. Before taking ALBENDAZOLE+IVERMECTIN, inform your doctor if you have a medical history of meningitis, African sleeping sickness (an infection caused by the bite of tsetse fly in African countries), or illness that weakens the immune system HIV. It may make you more prone to infections, so maintain proper hygiene. It may cause dizziness, so refrain from activities that require you to stay alert.
Parasitic worm infections.
ALBENDAZOLE+IVERMECTIN contains ‘Albendazole’ and ‘Ivermectin’, which belong to the class of medications called ‘antihelmintic’. It is a broad-spectrum antibiotic used in the treatment of parasitic infections. It can kill the disease-causing worms and stop the spread of infection effectively. Albendazole interrupts the absorption of glucose by the worm leading to energy depletion. Ivermectin acts by paralyzing the worms, consequently leading them to death.

Parasitic worm infections: Parasitic worms are also called intestinal worms or helminths. They live in and feed on the hosts leading to weakness and diseases. Common types of intestinal worms are roundworms and flatworms such as tapeworms and flukes. Worm infections could occur due to consumption of contaminated water, food, or soil, contact with contaminated faeces, poor sanitization, or poor hygiene.
