Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Well the best tapeworm medication to use are any of the following,

  • Praziquantel
  • Albendazole
  • Nitazoxanide

Of these the most effective drug has been shown to be praziquantel, this has the highest ratio of getting rid of infections however it does have some side effects. Albendazole is the next best drug as its side effect profile is extremely good. but praziquantel is the recommended drug to be used in severe infections.
