Brief Answer:
Albendezole

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
De worming is not routinely recommended to school children and women in childbearing years. I is not routinely recommended in adults. Hoever if you have contact with soil or have anemia or abdominal symptoms you can take a medicine for deworming
I Prescribe Albendazole to my patients. I advise my patients to take 400 mg as a single dose and to repeat after a month.
I would advise you to visit your doctor and get a prescription for the same and confirm the correct dose and frequency.
Regards
