Absolutely: A number of agents are available but have yourself tested to make sure the worm in question is sensitive. Have you been to a third world country lately. This would be a vital bit of info for your physician.

Few symptoms: Most people with tapeworms have no symptoms until they see part of the worm in their stool. Rarely, the fish tapeworm can cause vitamin B12 deficiency leading to anemia.
