Objective Assessment Required for Stopping the Medication
Q: Dear Doctor, since last 10 months I have been taking Albendazole 400mg for tiny calcified granuloma in the brain. I was getting very tired in the evening. So I decided to stop that tablet. Does it give any side effect during withdrawal? I think 10 months are more than enough to cure the granuloma. After 2 months, I have plan to assess the condition of granuloma by CT scan.
It is recommended that you leave the medication only after an objective assessment by CT scan, not before that.
You have already taken the drug for a sufficient period of time. This should be adequate. Talk to your doctor about it.
There are no withdrawal symptoms of this medication.
