In brief: Let me help
Praziquantel (biltricide) Albendazole (albenza) Nitazoxanide (alinia) which medication your doctor prescribes depends on the species of tapeworm involved and the site of the infection.
These drugs target the adult tapeworm, not the eggs, so it's important to avoid reinfecting yourself. Always wash your hands after using the toilet and before eating.
