Solas Drugs Information
Description: Solas (Mabendazole) is an effective and versatile broad spectrum anthelmintic agent; it eradicates warms by inhibiting nutrition uptake irreversibly. It is safe even in anaemic and mainutritive patients due to its negligible absorption rate.

Dosage: Children and adults are to be given same dosage. 100 mg tablet or 1 teaspoonful suspension bid for three days. For thread worm infestation doses should be double. For intrahepatic hydatid cysts 4-6 tablets or 4-6 teaspoonfuls suspension i.e. (400-600 mg) three times daily for 21-30 days.
