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...

Are combitic global caplet pvt ltd legitimate?

I received a pkg today its says albendazole tab ip. The zenlzole tablets then says albendazole ip 400mg orange oblong with no marking. Pkg from combitic global. ## @lori, Combitic Global in my opinion appears to be a legitimate drug manufacturer; and are even reputed as one of the leading manufacturers in India. The only gray area I see is based on where or how you got your prescription filled (i.e. mail-order v.s. a licensed pharmacy)... The latter doesn't dispense fake medication, albeit sometimes ineffective depending on different brands/generics. However, these days scammers have resorted to making counterfeits with pill presses they find on the internet and try to pass it off as something real. Your retailer (or whomever filled your Rx) could fall under either category. That sa...

albendazole / need to know what it is as doesn't fit description

supposed to be sunset yellow..are big oblong with rounded edges, light peach in color. no markings except a place to break them. came in silver punch individual packaging all placed in a baggy. says manufactured by specturm, a division of biochem from india. No other markings on them. ## Hi Jeannie, The only conclusion I can come to in regards to the difference in color, is that the manufacturer used different inactive ingredients as opposed to other manufacturers of Albendazole. Did you purchase these pills from a trusted source? ## That is actual what i received today (from combitic global). Did this work for you ?
