Albenza is indicated for the treatment of infections caused by dog tapeworm and pork tapeworm. The generic name of this drug is Albendazole. It belongs to a category of drugs referred to as anti-worm drugs. Albenza is meant for oral administration only.
This drug works by inhibiting the growth and reproduction of worms in the body. The active ingredient used in this drug is Albendazole. Albenza also contains the following inert ingredients: hypromellose, carnauba wax, monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium sterate, sodium saccharin, povidone, starch, lauryl sulfate, and sodium starch glycolate.
Side effects of Albenza
Patients who are allergic to Albendazole or to any other constituent present in the formulation should not buy Albenza. If you are a first time user, immediately report the occurrence of any allergic reaction to your doctor. An allergic reaction, if left untreated, can lead to serious complications. The following symptoms mark the occurrence of an allergic reaction: hives, facial flushing, skin rashes, itching, and trouble swallowing and/or breathing.
Less serious side effects of Albenza are: nausea, stomach ache, vomiting, dizziness, temporary hair loss, and mild headache. Consult your doctor if any of these side effects become a cause for concern.
The serious side effects of Albenza are: flu-like symptoms, body aches, sore throat, severe headache, unusual weakness, easy bruising, and easy or unusual breeding. If you experience any of these side effects, consult your doctor immediately.
The administration of Albenza in pregnant women should only be considered if the benefits to the mother are greater than any potential risk to the fetus.
The safety of this drug in lactating women has not been confirmed fully. You must consult your doctor before using Albenza if you are nursing a baby.
Dosage of Albenza
Albenza is available in the form of oral tablets. It comes in one strength only, that is, Albenza 200 mg. Usually, patients need to take one or two Albenza oral tablets daily. However, the actual dosage may vary from case to case. The exact dosage depends on the kind and severity of the infection, a patient’s medical history, weight, and his/her response and tolerance to the treatment.
Albenza is to be taken with a full glass of water (8 ounces). Young children may have difficulty swallowing the oral tablet whole. If this is the case, crush the tablet and ask the child to take the medicine with water. Taking Albenza with food may reduce epigastric stress that some patients may experience as a side effect of this drug.
It is imperative that you take Albenza for the full prescribed period. Stopping the medication beforehand, even when the symptoms have disappeared, may increase your risk of a re-infection.
Your doctor may prescribe other drugs to be taken along with Albenza. It is important that you take all the medications prescribed for your treatment as directed by your doctor.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
