We are not a recognized health authority and we advise you to contact your doctor regarding usage of medication.
  • Secnidazole is used to treat certain amoebas and giardiasis trichomoniasis. It is administered orally by a prescription.

According to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secnidazole the drug has an 80 to 100% success rate of killing off the bacteria or amoebas with a single dose of 2g. Studies used to provide information to Wikipedia have shown certain bacteria or diseases may require a longer treatment of five to seven days. This information is not provided as a replacement to a doctor's medical specifications regarding the dosage. It is provided to give you a background on the drug. Before taking the medication Secnidazole please seek a physician's advice about the dosage. In the US a pharmacist may be able to provide you with the prescription information that should have been on the pill bottle.
  • Albendazole is a drug used to treat worm infestations.

Albendazole has not been approved by the FDA for the use as a worm treatment, though it is commonly used as such in the USA. It is shown to be effective against roundworms, flukes, and tapeworms in animals and humans. The following link en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albendazole presents data about the drug. It should be used for your benefit of knowledge and not as an answer to your question.
The research used to create the Wikipedia page states that 400mg is usually given twice daily for adults. This is not on doctor's advice however, and should not be taken as such. Instead, seek proper GP/medical advice.

My doctor gave me the same thing and said to take them both at the same time with food.  It should take care of the problem.

Good luck

You take one tablet today and the second one 2 weeks later. Do not drink ANY alcohol for 3-5days after each treatment.
