Brief Answer:
no interaction between them

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to health care magic.
The pain killer drugs you have mentioned doesn't have any significant interaction with albendazole.
Albendazole is effective against commonly found worm infections and should be taken as a single dose for most purposes. If the worm infestation is prolonged and serious then you should get the evaluated by your physician and get a particular prolong time regiment. You should avoid taking sugar containing edibles and other sweet edibles during the treatment with albendazole because it affects its efficacy on the worm.
I hope the advice will be helpful for you.
