Ivermectin, given in a single dose for 1 or 2 days, has become the medicine of choice. Albendazole, given in two courses 10 days apart, is also effective. Thiabendazole (Mintezol), given twice daily for 2 or 3 days, is an alternative treatment as well. Disease that has spread through the body often requires longer treatment.
