Biltricide Drug Information
Biltricide is used to treat infections of certain parasites (such as Schistosoma and liver flukes). Curing parasitic infections helps to improve your health and quality of life. Praziquantel belongs to a class of drugs known as anthelmintics. It works by killing the parasites. It also paralyzes the parasites, causing them to release their hold on the blood vessel walls so the body can remove them naturally.
How to Use Biltricide
Take Biltricide by mouth with a meal as directed by your doctor, usually 3 times a day (4 to 6 hours apart) for 1 day. Quickly swallow the tablets or tablet segments with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 milliliters). Do not chew or suck the tablets because the bitter taste of praziquantel may cause gagging or vomiting. Your doctor may direct you to take Biltricide fewer than 3 times a day or to take it for longer than 1 day. Follow your doctor's directions exactly. If you have trouble swallowing the tablets or tablet segments, you may crush the medication and mix it in soft foods or liquids. Take the mixture within 1 hour of mixing. Dosage of Biltricide is based on your medical condition, weight, and response to treatment. Tablets are scored with lines. You may need to break the tablet to get the correct dose. Ask your pharmacist for directions on breaking the tablet to get the right dose for you.

Grapefruit can increase the chance of side effects with this medicine. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details. Your symptoms may worsen when you start taking praziquantel. Tell your doctor right away if your condition lasts or worsens.
