Banocide Forte Information

R Swaminathan Says:

I am 80yrs old. Have been prescribed Banocide Forte 100mg 3 times a day for increased swelling for old filariasis. Does the medication bring down the swelling in the left foot? How many days should I continue treatment? Does it produce any side effects? I am a diabetic and am regularly on insulin.

Banocide Forte contains the active ingredient Diethylcarbamazine, it is an antihelmintic, so it is intended to eradicate the filariasis, but not it won't directly work on the swelling.

As to how long you should take it, you should follow whatever instructions your doctor provided.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Thanks for your information given by Verwon regarding banocide forte 100mg which acts only on filariasis. I fully appreciate his views on the subject. However, I would like to know if there is any other form of treatment for increased swelling? Using creped bandage, raising the affected leg over 2 pillows while sleeping is another.

My doctor prescribed this medicine (100 mg at a time) for my daughter who is at the age of sixteen, weighing 41 kg. I think it's a high dose for her. Can you please answer me? Is it safe for her health? Thank you.
