Brief Answer: not used in humans Detailed Answer: HI, thanks for using healthcare magic Fenbendatsol is only safely used for animals at this time. Mebendazole belongs to the class of drugs called anti-helminthic agents. If you cannot obtain mebendazole, there are other options available. Other anti helminthic agents can be used to according to the type of infection present. There are different types of organisms that can be identified on a stool sample sent to the lab. NEMATODES (roundworms) respond to: ivermectin, mebendazole, thiabenzole, pyrantel pamoate TREMATODES (flatworms or flukes) respond to: praziquantel CESTODES (tapeworms) respond to: albendazole , niclosamide Many of these agents treat multiple organisms as well. Albendazole also treats hookworms, whipworms and thread worms. Some of the others mentioned can also treat multiple worms as well. Your doctor may be able to suggest one of these agents for you. I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
