Biltricide (Praziquantel) is used to treat infections caused by certain parasites, such as Schistosoma and liver flukes. Treating parasitic infections with Biltricide helps improve health and quality of life.

Praziquantel belongs to a class of drugs called anthelmintics, which work by killing parasites. Additionally, it paralyzes the parasites, causing them to release their hold on the blood vessel walls, allowing the body to naturally eliminate them.

Do’s

  • Take it exactly as prescribed: Follow your healthcare provider's instructions on dosage, frequency (usually 3 times a day, 4-6 hours apart), and duration (typically 1 day).
  • Take it with a meal: Biltricide works best when taken with food.
  • Swallow quickly with water: Swallow the tablets whole or crushed segments with a full glass of water. Avoid chewing or sucking on them due to the bitter taste.

  • Ask your healthcare provider about breaking tablets: If needed, the tablets can be broken for accurate dosing. Consult your healthcare provider for proper breaking instructions.
