can take Tab. Praziquentral 600 mg single dose after consultation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I can understand. As you have tapeworm infection, for that you can take Tab. Praziquantal 600 mg single dose or Tab. Albendazole 400 mg once a day of 3 days after physician consultation. Avoid raw or undercooked meat. Freeze well before use. Maintain proper hygiene.

You can check if any of the above medicines are available over-the counter. In order to get a written prescription, you will need to see a local doctor and he will prescribe medication.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.Thank you.
