Hello there. . I can understand your concern. You can take flagyl twice a day for 3 days after food. Drink lots of water and have smaller frequent meals. No need to take albendazole again . It's a single dose but you have already taken for 4 days. All the taenia would have gone. You can take a rantac 150 if you have any acidity. Consult a general physician in person for further help. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.

Hello, zentel (albendazole) 400mg is a single dose tablet to treatment worm infestation. Since you have already taken no need to repeat it. And frazyl (metronidazole) 400mg,is antibacterial to treat or to prevent anaerobic infection, you continue your frazyl tablet twice a day as your doctor adviced and complete the full course. No need to take zentel tablet again.
