Is anyone taking Albenza? What are your side effects? I have severe chest pain, I had to back off. Maybe the parasites are in my heart. Sounds crazy but there are parasites that go there.

Albenza just makes me herx after a few days. I'm with you, parasites go everywhere, even the heart. I think they scramble once I take the meds. I think it's good you backed off though.

Are you taking binders too? I know it sounds weird but DE has helped me with chest pain in the past. Maybe it was just pulling all the toxins out.

What are you treating here with Albendazole?
I'm going to take it with other dewormers to treat filariasis ( Morgellons).
Do you know that you should take it with high fat meals to help with absorption?
Also, long term use can cause bad hair loss(baldness).

I've been taking it for several years, no hair loss here.

Haley, if you can't do albenza, salt/c and anti parasitic herbs helped clear them for me too (heart).

What's the dosage you've been on?
Do you mean salt/c can kill heartworm(filariasis)?
Thanks

I take 2 pills 3x/day. Salt/c plus anti parasitic herbs (combined) killed something, not sure what it was.
