In the case of hookworms, doctors prescribe anthelmintic drugs, such as Mebendazole or Albendazole. Triclabendazole may help treat flukes, while pin worm infections often respond well to both over-the-counter and prescription drugs.

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

I believe I have worms and have treated with pin x and the evening after I took the medication I could visually see what I believe to be worms in the stool in comparison to the google pics. Also, that evening I began to have hemroids and now I think I can see little white things moving in the hemroids. What do I do? I have searched and searched for what to do to eradicate them from other places in my body other than the digestive tract and there seems to be no answers. Will this pin x kill all of them or should I try something else? It has been 4 days since I took the meds.

hello i have a hunch that i have tapeworms. I am seeing white looking seeds in my stools. My cat just went through an episode with tapeworms, I hadn t noticed for a while but there was tapeworm segments all over my house from the cat. I went to a clinic and i was given pyrantel pamoate yet from what i read its useless against tapeworms. My cat was treated with praziquantel, Its been several days now and I am still seeing white seeds in my stools. will I need a different medication?
