Niclosamide, more commonly known as Niclocide, is taken orally as a remedy for illnesses resulting from infestations of tapeworms, such as diphyllobothriasis, hymenolepiasis, and taeniasis. Unfortunately, pinworms and roundworms will not respond to this drug. Niclosamide is shipped out by the company to various parts of the world, including the Gulf states, South East Asia, Africa, the Commonwealth of Independent States, Latin American countries, Central America, and Europe.
What is Niclosamide and what is it used for?
Niclosamide is an anthelmintic medication which is used to treat infections caused by tapeworms such as Taenia saginata, Hymenolepis nana, Hymenolepis diminuta and Dipylidium caninum. It can also be helpful against Fasciolopsis buski and Heterophyes heterophyes. However, it is not effective against other types of worms such as pinworms or roundworms.
This production method has a number of advantages, high efficiency, low cost, no pollution, and a high yield. The initial reaction requires 14-15.5 percent of o-chloro-p-nitroaniline, 5 percent of xylene, and thionyl chloride. Subsequently, the weight of the xylene would be equal to that of the 11% of ethanol applied. Compared to conventional methods, this production process has the benefit of reduced reaction temperatures, which reduces energy usage and makes it easier to operate the reactor.
Dosage + Usage:
Niclosamide can be taken with no food either an hour before or two hours after meals. To avoid stomach upset, it is best to take it after a light breakfast. Before ingesting, the pills should be crushed or broken down into a powder with a little water. For children, the powder should be mixed in water to make a paste-like consistency. Niclosamide can be taken with or without food (an hour before or two hours after a meal) but be sure to consume a light breakfast to better prevent stomach distress.

- Paediatric: An analysis of a small group of children aged two and up was done to determine possible reactions to niclosamide with no difference in doses between kids and adults being present.
- Geriatric care: It has not been sufficiently researched how medications affect the elderly; therefore, it is uncertain whether the same reactions occur in this population as in younger individuals, or if heightened adverse reactions are present. At present, there is not a substantial amount of facts to make a comparison between the use of niclosamide by seniors against the use of this medicine by other age groups.
- Mothers: Investigators found that nursing mothers may present a slight risk to their babies while taking this medication.
