Albendazole is an anthelmintic (an-thel-MIN-tik) or anti-worm medication. It prevents newly hatched insect larvae (worms) from growing or multiplying in your body. Albendazole is used to treat certain infections caused by worms such as pork tapeworm and dog tapeworm. Albendazole may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Albenza is a drug created from albendazole, which works by killing certain types of parasites. This clears out the body of infestation and allows the patient to start healing from the damage. Other medication may be prescribed in addition to Albenza to deal with certain conditions.
