Praziquantel is indicated for the treatment of infections caused by specific parasites, such as Schistosoma and liver flukes. Praziquantel exerts a paralyzing effect on the parasites, prompting them to detach from the walls of blood vessels, facilitating their natural elimination by the body. By effectively eliminating parasitic infections, it contributes to the enhancement of overall health and quality of life. Praziquantel belongs to a pharmacological class called anthelmintics, which are known for their efficacy against parasitic worms.

Uses and Dosage

Take praziquantel orally with a meal, as prescribed by your doctor, typically three times a day, with intervals of 4 to 6 hours, for a duration of one day. Swallow the tablets or tablet segments with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 milliliters). Avoid chewing or sucking on the tablets, as the bitter taste of praziquantel may induce gagging or vomiting.

Your doctor may modify the dosing regimen, either by reducing the frequency of administration or extending the treatment duration. Strictly follow your doctor’s instructions.

If you encounter difficulties swallowing the tablets or tablet segments, you have the option to crush the medication and combine it with soft foods or liquids. Consume the mixture within 1 hour of preparation.

The dosage of the medication depends on your medical condition, weight, and response to treatment. The tablets are scored with lines, which may require breaking them to obtain the correct dose. Seek guidance from your pharmacist on how to properly break the tablet in order to achieve the appropriate dosage for your needs.

While using this medication, refrain from consuming grapefruit or grapefruit juice, unless your doctor or pharmacist has deemed it safe to do so. Grapefruit can potentially heighten the risk of side effects associated with this medicine.
