Re: Praziquantel

Fyi. 1/8th teaspoon may not be enough - molecular weight of "pure" prazi in powder form varies - this is where it becomes shooting in dark. I find that the average molecular weight for fine powder prazi calculates to 380mg per 1/4 teaspoon - 1/4 treaspoon at that converted amount is far below the avg. recommended dosages for cestodes (25mg/kg) - some treatments (ie shistosoma) call for a single dose at 75mg/kg. For myself, I'd rather error high as prazi has low toxicity and i want to avoid building resistance. But one must do their own research and math, and of course I will state for the record to always get advice/treatment from a currently informed specialized clinical professional proactively engaged in the process for their patients.
