Wants to take zentel medication, two tablets. How many doses of zentel can I take without seeing side-effects?

Hi, I just bought a dose of zentel (2 tablets) to take (for myself). I am 30 years old, female, eat healthy, have no symptoms that would lead me to think that i need zentel. However, I chose to do this because i have not done something like this for over 6 years. My question is, how many times should i repeat this procedure?

Hi Niala,
Thanks for using the HCM. I am happy to address your questions, each ZENTEL 200 mg tablet contains 200 mg albendazole. Usual dose of 400 mg (two ZENTEL 200 mg tablets) as a single dose in adults. The tablets may be chewed, swallowed or crushed and mixed with food. In heavy mixed infestation involving Strongyloides or Taeniasis, a single daily dose may be inadequate and the dose may be given for three consecutive days. If not cured after three weeks, a second course of treatment may be given. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks
