Did you read the link you posted to dispute me?
These drugs are poorly absorbed
by the digestive system and
work by dissolving or attacking the adult tapeworm. Be aware that these drugs target the adult tapeworm, not the eggs
, so take care to avoid
reinfecting yourself. Always wash your hands after using the toilet and before eating.
Stool samples are generally checked at one month or three months after you've finished taking your medication, depending on what species of tapeworm
you have. Successful treatment should render your stool free of tapeworm eggs, larvae or proglottids. The success rate is greater than 95 percent in
people who receive appropriate treatment.
Anti-inflammatories if you have cysts
In cases in which the tapeworm infection has migrated to tissues outside your intestine, your doctor may prescribe an anti-inflammatory steroid to
reduce any swelling caused by the development of cysts.
Surgery if you have life-threatening cysts
Surgery may be required to remove cysts that have deveoped in your liver, lung or other organs, and organ transplantation may be your last
in some cases.
(bolded text is my emphasis)
So, again, antihelmetics and a blood-brain barrier disruption to get them out of your brain or surgery. Best to do a regularly scheduled prevention
program. Just assume that you probably have some parasites and give yourself an annual cleansing.
And who is Dr. Rufus Red? I keep hearing that name but google just turns up something about cats. ????
