Antiprotozoal / Anthelmintic Overview

Anthelmintics or antihelminthics are a group of antiparasitic drugs that expel parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by either stunning or killing them and without causing significant damage to the host. They may also be called vermifuges (those that stun) or vermicides (those that kill). Anthelmintics are used to treat people who are infected by helminths, a condition called helminthiasis. These drugs are also used to treat infected animals. Pills containing ...

D+ 30 round white pill for dogs

I found a pill bottle from the vet and it has 2 pills in it. They are round and white with D+ above the break and 30 below it. I'm just trying to figure out what it was prescribed for. I've looked it up a few different ways, but can't find anything. Thanks in advance for your help! ## It’s drontal which is for worms such as hookworm and tape worms. ## Hello Faaron, As Jen said I looked up the pill and it comes up as Drontal + which is a medication used to treat worms.

I have worms in my stomach and it really hurts. I tried vermox compresse tablets 500 mg but it wasn't effective. My doctor recommended me mintezol tablets, but I can't find them anywhere. Please can someone help me cause I really need help as soon as you can respond to this question because my stomach really hurts. ## Omg!! I know this is too little too late.

Use of 1% Ivermectin solution for horses etc instead of SOOLANTRA

Why wouldn't this work? 1% Ivermectin solution is commonly available from feed stores. ## Hi ralft, From what I could gather, Soolantra is just another brand name for Ivermectin, but is reported to come in the form of a topical cream as opposed to the generic liquid solution you're describing. What purpose are you using it for though? The MayoClinic lists Ivermectin as being used for treating worm infections, diarrhea, and onchocerciasis (also known as river blindness). However, some other sites go on to note that the topical form may be used for rosacea as well. So being that there are two forms of Ivermectin, my guess is that a vet would probably be your best bet for determining which form of Ivermectin is better suited for the horse, including the type of condition, dosing, a...

Yellow heart shaped tablet from the vet with an R

I have a puppy weighing 2.5 pounds and was given a triwormer that they say is Drontal. It looks like a heart shape that was scored in half but has an "R" imprinted, pale yellow in color. ## Hello Cindy, I did just a bit of research on the pill you described and I found a Drontal pill that is a freeform bone shapped pill with a score in the middle. I can see how the bone shape looks like two hearts, is that what you're describing or is it a heart shape with a score down the middle of the heart? Here is some addition info I sourced from the NIH. NDC: 0859-2180 Active Ingredients: Praziquantel 22.7mg Pyrantel Pamoate 22.7mg Febantel 113.4mg Color:Brown Score: 2 Shape: Freeform (Bone) Size: 20mm Let me know if this is what you were describing. If not I can continue my search.

white pill no23 round

I found this small round white pill with no 23 in the bottom of my purse. Can't remember what it is, can anyone help. ## Hello Jodi, Is the number 23 the only imprint that is on the pill? If so then I was able to identify the pill. I believe what you have is a Praziquantel 23 MG Oral Tablet. According to the National Institute of Health this medication is used to treat worms, specifically Schistosoma worms. Here is some additional information I was able to source from the NIH on this pill. NDC: 0859-2397 Imprint: 23 Manufacturer: Bayer HealthCare, LLC Animal Health Division Color(s): White Shape: Round Size (mm): 10.00 Score: 2 If there is something else imprinted on the pill let me know and I will revise my post to what you have. If you have any further questions feel free to ask.

Albendazole Tabs ip (Zenzole)

I've been to several doctors with no results helping for parasites so I went and got a mail-order prescription filled for Albenza from Combitic Global. The package came in and I received albendazole tablets ip with the brand name zenzole. They are peach and oblong tablets with a score line to split but has no markings. I'm at my wits end for help and not sure what to do, so frustrated. ## Hi Lori, sorry to hear about what you've been dealing with. So it sounds like you got your prescription filled from a manufacturer in India which should TECHNICALLY contain the same active ingredient as a domestic drug. While I can't give you medical advice I have heard of individuals being just fine with generic equivalents from out of the country. The challenge, however, is that forei...

Albendazole side effects - lips sores.

I tool this medication for one does. 10 days later I started to get pimples on my lips and around my mouth. My lips and around the mouth are covered with these sores. Is this a side effect? I never had these before and I do not have oral herpes. ## Hello, SChan! How are you? Are you certain you don't have oral herpes, as in, has one of these lesions actually been cultured by your doctor to check? A herpes simplex virus can lie dormant in the body for many years, then some medications, including this one, can suddenly wake it up and cause an outbreak. And for anyone worried, there is nothing to be ashamed of, if you have oral herpes. It just happens and, by the time we are elderly, over 85% of the population is infected with it, it's just that many don't break out in the sore...
