    My parents are in India and last time they went there they got worms in their stomach, this time when going they forgot to take deworming tablets with them from the USA.

    Due to all the cheating and lies going on in India I don't trust the chemists to what they suggest there and would rather rely on the forum to suggest what deworming tablets for adults in India are available or effective.

    A quick response would be appreciated.

    For prevention of worms, the deworming medicine in India is called Albendazole sold by the brand name Zental.
    I would suggest that if there is doubt of worms then consult a doctor first.

    Even before taking the deworming tablets I would strongly recommend consulting a doctor, in case your parents are taking any other medication they need to make sure that when taking the deworming tablets they don't have an adverse effect on them.

    Make sure that your parents check the expiry date of the medication when they purchase it.
