    Pharmacology:

    Metasol TK 100 is a fungicide and parasiticide. Metasol TK 100 is also a chelating agent, which means that it is used medicinally to bind metals in cases of metal poisoning, such as lead poisoning, mercury poisoning or antimony poisoning. Metasol TK 100 is vermicidal and/or vermifugal against Ascaris lumbricoides ("common roundworm"), Strongyloides stercoralis (threadworm), Necator americanus, Ancylostoma duodenale (hookworm), Trichuris trichiura (whipworm), Ancylostoma braziliense (dog and cat hookworm), Toxocara canis, Toxocara cati (ascarids), and Enterobius vermicularis (pinworm). Metasol TK 100 also suppresses egg and/or larval production and may inhibit the subsequent development of those eggs or larvae which are passed in the feces.

    Metasol TK 100 for patients

    Because CNS side effects may occur quite frequently, activities requiring mental alertness should be avoided.

    Metasol TK 100 Interactions

    Thiabendazole may compete with other drugs, such as theophylline, for sites of metabolism in the liver, thus elevating the serum levels of such compounds to potentially toxic levels. Therefore, when concomitant use of thiabendazole and xanthine derivatives is anticipated, it may be necessary to monitor blood levels and/or reduce the dosage of such compounds. Such concomitant use should be administered under careful medical supervision.

    Metasol TK 100 Contraindications

    Hypersensitivity to this product.

    Thiabendazole is contraindicated as prophylactic treatment for pinworm infestation.
