Hetrazan 100 Side Effects

I am using it since last 3 months. 2 tablets daily. ## Hetrazan contains the active ingredient Diethylcarbamazine, it is used to treat infections of different types of worms. As to the side effects, they usually only last for the first 4 to 6 weeks of using the medication, so you really shouldn't be experiencing many, after 3 months. However, they can include: nausea, facial itching and swelling of the eyes. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I am treating a Bancrofti infection in the US. I am using DEC. I am trying to gather information from other users of this medication.
