Warnings and precautions:
Bone marrow suppression: fatalities have been reported due to bone marrow suppression; monitor blood counts in all patients at the beginning of each 28-day cycle of therapy, and every 2 weeks while on therapy.
Discontinue Albenza if clinically significant changes in blood counts occur.
Embryo-fetal toxicity: may cause fetal harm. Pregnancy testing is recommended for females of reproductive potential prior to therapy. Advise females of reproductive potential of the potential risk to a fetus
and to use an effective method of contraception.
Risk of neurologic symptoms: neurocysticercosis patients may experience cerebral hypertensive episodes, seizures or focal neurologic deficits after initiation of therapy; begin appropriate steroid and anticonvulsant therapy.
Risk of retinal damage in retinal cysticercosis: cases of retinal involvement have been reported; examine the patient for the presence of retinal lesions before initiating therapy for neurocysticercosis.
Hepatic effects. Elevations of liver enzymes may occur. Monitor liver enzymes before the start of each treatment cycle and at least every 2 weeks while on Albenza or Zentel (Albendazole) tablets therapy and discontinue if clinically significant elevations occur.
Adverse reactions, side effects:
Adverse reactions of albendazole tablets 1% or greater in hydatid disease: abnormal liver function tests, abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, reversible alopecia, headache, dizziness/vertigo, fever.

Dexamethasone: steady-state trough concentrations of albendazole sulfoxide were about 56% higher when dexamethasone was coadministered with each dose of albendazole.
Praziquantel: in the fed state increased mean maximum plasma concentration and area under the curve of albendazole sulfoxide by about 50% in healthy subjects.
Cimetidine: increased albendazole sulfoxide concentrations in bile and cystic fluid by about 2-fold in hydatid cyst patients.
Theophylline: albendazole induces cytochrome P450 1A in human hepatoma cells; therefore, it is recommended that plasma concentrations of theophylline be monitored during and after treatment.
Patient counseling information:
Patients should be advised that:
Some people, particularly children, may experience difficulties swallowing the Albenza, Zentel (Albendazole) tablets whole.
