Zolat Solution is a prescription medicine that is used to treat tapeworm infection that affects the brain, muscles and body tissues (neurocysticercosis). This medicine works by destroying the growth of parasitic worms. This medicine helps by preventing the production of energy (adenosine triphosphate) which is essential for the growth of parasitic worms. Zolat Solution is also used to treat parasitic infection which affects the liver, lungs, and peritoneum (hydatid disease).
Zolat Solution may also be used along with other medicines in the treatment of certain conditions as recommended by the doctor. It is used with Corticosteroid to prevent the increased pressure inside the skull during the first week of treatment. It is also used together with anticonvulsants to prevent brain-related symptoms such as seizures while undergoing treatment with Zolat.
Zolat belongs to the Antihelminthic class of medicines. Antihelminthics are a group of antiparasitic drugs that treat people who have a condition called helminthiasis. These medicines remove parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by killing the parasites such as roundworms, flukes, and tapeworms.
