Zentel

(albendazole)

Tablets and suspension

 

How do common worms enter our body ?

Common worms enter our body through 2 main ways :

 - contamination of food by worm eggs

 - penetration of our skin by worm larvae

 

Who gets common worm infections ?

The incidence of worm infections varies in different countries from as high as 90% to as low as 5%. Incidence tends to be higher in areas where farming is widespread and untreated sewage is used as fertilisers.

 

Children are particularly easy targets for common worm infections as being active, they are outdoors most of the time.

 

Common types of worm infections

IN Malaysia, the most common worm infection is whipworm, followed by roundworm, hookworm, pinworm and threadworm.

 

Whipworm is also one of the most difficult to kill.

 

Because the soil conditions for the breeding these common worms' eggs (except pinworm) are rather similar, often a patient is infected with more than one type of worm at the same time. Therefore the deworming medicine chosen should preferably be one that can kill all types of common worms.

 

What is Zentel ?

Zentel contains Albendazole which is methyl [5-(propylthio)-1H-benzimidazol-2-y1] carbamate compound resulting from over 15 years of research by SmithKline & French.

 

How does Zentel help if you have a common worm infection ?

Zentel can kill the difficult-to-treat whipworm. Not all deworming medicines can do this.

 

Zentel can also kill all the other common worms. This means you do not have to take more than one type of deworming medicine to treat your worm infection.

 

Zentel kills both the larvae and the adult worm. Other deworming medicines only kill adult worms. If you use other deworming medicines, you have to take medicine again when the unkilled larvae mature into adult worms. With Zentel, you do NOT have to.

 

Zentel has been successfully used on more than 5 million patients worldwide.

 

Zentel can be taken anytime of the day. No special fasting or purging procedure is required. Other deworming medicines may require special mealtimes or procedures.

 

How much Zentel must I take & for how many days ?

Roundworm, whipworm, Hookworm & Pinworm infections :

For adults and children above 2 years, 1 full bottle of 10ml Zentel suspension (400mg) or 2 Zentel tablets (400mg altogether). You only need to take this once.

 

For children 12-24 months, take half the adult dosage.

 

Threadworm and Tapeworm infections :

For adults and children above 2 years, take 1 full bottle of 10ml Zentel suspension (400mg) or 2 Zentel tablets (400mg altogether ) once a day for 3 consecutive days.

 

Zentel tablets are chewable and can also be crushed and mixed with food.

 

Who should not take Zentel ?

Albendazole should not be administered during confirmed or suspected pregnancy, or to children below 12 months.

 

* RECOMMENDATION

It is recommended to repeat Zentel 2-3 times a year to stay worm-free.
