Praziquantel is an anthelmintic medication used to treat a number of parasitic worm infections such as trematodes (lung, liver, intestinal flukes) and tapeworms. Praziquantel is rapidly and nearly completely absorbed after oral administration, but there is a significant first-pass effect after oral administration. The acute toxicity of praziquantel is relatively low.
Storage/Stability: Unless otherwise instructed by the manufacturer, praziquantel tablets should be stored in tight containers at room temperature. Protect from light.
