Bandy is used to treat neurocysticercosis, an infection of the nervous system caused by pork tapeworms. Bandy is also used to treat cystic hydatid disease of the liver, lung, and peritoneum, an infection caused by dog tapeworms.
Bandy is used to treat infections caused by worms. It works by keeping the worm from absorbing sugar (glucose), so that the worm loses energy and dies.
Bandy is available only with your doctor’s prescription.
Once a medicine has been approved for marketing for a certain use, experience may show that it is also useful for other medical problems. Although these uses are not included in product labeling in the U.S. Bandy is used in certain patients with the following infections:
Cutaneous larva migrans.
Common roundworms (ascariasis).
Hookworms (ancylostomiasis and necatoriasis).
Pinworms (enterobiasis or oxyuriasis).
Tapeworms (taeniasis).
Whipworms (trichuriasis).
For patients taking Bandy for hookworms:
In hookworm infections, anemia may occur. Therefore, your doctor may want you to take iron supplements. If so, it is important to take iron every day while you are being treated for hookworm infection. Do not miss any doses. Your doctor may also want you to keep taking iron supplements for at least 3 to 6 months after you stop taking Bandy. If you have any questions about this, check with your doctor.
For patients taking Bandy for pinworms:
In some patients, pinworms may return after treatment with Bandy. Wear pajamas and underwear to sleep, take a bath every day, and wash (not shake) all bedding and nightclothes (pajamas) after treatment to help prevent reinfection. Treatment may be repeated after 3 weeks.
Pinworms may be easily passed from one person to another, especially among persons in the same household. Therefore, all household members may have to be treated at the same time to prevent their infection or reinfection.
