Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Biltricide
Answer:Biltricide(plaziquantel) is a drug used in the treatment of schistosome and liver fluke infections. These are parasites usually picked up in underdeveloped countries and are uncommon in the United States except among immigrants. I have not used this drug, the PDR cites its side effects as mild-mainly nausea, headaches and dizziness.
