Once inside, they begin their vital activity, changing the work of internal organs or entire systems, which greatly suffers from immunity. You can fight them with the help of special deworming drugs. What kind of remedy for parasites to choose and how to use it will help an infectious disease parasitologist.

Varieties in composition

All antiparasitic drugs can be divided into several groups.

  1. For parasites, drugs based on synthetic components can be prescribed to humans. It is possible to drive away helminths after taking 2-3 tablets. But all drugs are highly toxic, and if the correct dosage is not observed, the risk of side effects increases.

Some drugs may be active in adults, so treatment is repeated two weeks later. During this time, the larvae emerge from the eggs, which transform into an adult organism. There are universal drugs that work at any stage of the development of helminths.

Antiparasitic drugs for humans are produced separately, which are able to get rid of one or more of their types. Broad-spectrum drugs can eliminate all parasites.

Division into groups

An examination by a doctor will help identify the causative agent of the disease and prescribe effective drugs. How to cleanse the body of parasites largely depends on the identified species. The human body can be inhabited by three types of parasites: roundworms (nematodes), tapeworms (trematodes) and tapeworms (cestodes).

The following best pest control remedies help with roundworms.

  1. Effective medicine albendazole. Available in the form of tablets and suspensions, it acts at any stage of the development of the parasites that live in the intestines and internal organs. Glucose transport is interrupted, the supply of nutrients to the parasitic organism stops and its death occurs. The drug can be prescribed as part of the course with a two-week break.

Antiparasitic agents for trematodes.

  1. You can remove parasites from the human body with the help of a medicinal extract of belladonna with ichthyol. It leads to neuromuscular paralysis of helminths, the destruction of their shell and disruption of metabolic processes. This is a broad-spectrum drug for humans, but more often it is prescribed for rare pathogens of trematodosis.
  2. Hydrotalcite. Causes helminth paralysis. It is taken after meals with a little water. If the drug is prescribed to drink several times a day, the interval should be at least 5 hours.

Preparations for parasites in the human body, belonging to the group of cestodes.

  1. Mepacrine. Before use, people are prescribed a diet, laxatives are required. It is enough to take one dose for a positive effect to appear.
  2. The antiparasitic agent Albendazole negatively affects metabolic processes inside the parasites, disrupts the absorption of glucose. The tablets are taken after meals, no diet or laxative is required.
  3. Niclosamide. The pharmaceutical drug reduces the resistance of the parasites to digestive enzymes, and they begin to be digested with food. Neuromuscular paralysis occurs, helminths lose their ability to move and attach to the walls of the mucous membrane.

Herbal preparations are very popular. One of them is Riol, which cleanses the body of parasites. In addition, the agent removes toxins formed as a result of their vital activity, normalizes the intestinal microflora and restores reduced immunity.

The most popular are drugs against parasites of the human body, which are active against many types of helminths.

Consider a wide range of drugs included in the list of the most popular and effective.

  4. Niclosamide. This broad-spectrum antiparasitic drug is available in tablets. The active substance paralyzes the neuromuscular system, and the helminths come out with the feces.
  5. The effective remedy Pirantel affects all stages of the parasite's development, except the larvae, so the treatment is repeated after 2-3 weeks.

Parasites can settle not only in a person's internal organs, but also outside - for example, under the skin. How to remove the disease in this case? It is advisable to treat with ointments, sprays, creams, gels.

  1. Sulfuric ointment. When applied to the skin, it has an antiparasitic effect, is not absorbed into the general bloodstream, and kills germs and fungi.
  2. Benzyl benzoate is used to kill parasites - the drug not only has an antiparasitic effect, but also stops the multiplication of bacteria. Apply on the affected area with a thin layer.

For parasites in the human body, drugs can also be prescribed prophylactically - especially for those who have pets, as well as for children who attend kindergarten and school.


Antiparasitic drugs often have negative effects on the body. Most often, the brain, liver, kidneys, intestines and nervous system are affected, so it is important to observe the dosage and take into account a person's age and body weight.

To reduce the development of the risk of side effects during the recovery period, it is better to accompany the treatment with adsorbents (they are prescribed to cleanse the body of toxins), enzyme preparations (improve the functioning of the digestive system), complex vitamins and minerals, immunostimulating drugs.

The most common side effects resulting from taking antiparasitic drugs are:

  • allergic manifestations in the form of rash, cough, edema;
  • abdominal pain;
  • nausea and vomiting;
  • the appearance of loose stools;
  • heart rhythm disturbances;
  • headache;
  • convulsions.

If the dosage is not observed, the person develops hepatitis, cirrhosis of the liver, the processes of hematopoiesis and the work of the urinary system are disturbed.

Often, drugs against parasites are contraindicated in women during pregnancy and lactation. They are used with extreme caution in childhood. Piperazine is considered the safest drug. The drug is approved for use from a year, but the active substance can only relieve roundworms and pinworms.

Single-celled protozoa (Toxoplasma, Giardia, Trichomonas) can also live in the human body. In the fight against them, the drug Metronidazole helps. The active ingredients are able to kill not only parasites, but also microbes and should be taken for at least 5 days.

By observing the recommendations of a specialist, you can quickly and easily get rid of unwanted residents.
