Chemical composition and pharmacological properties1 ml of Reptilife® suspension contains albendazole - 25 mg and praziquantel - 10 mg (as active ingredients), as well as excipients.
The drug has broad-spectrum nematodocidic and cestodocidic effect on gastrointestinal roundworms (Alaeuris numidica, Alaeuris iguanae, Angusticaecum holopterum, Macracis prolixa, Tachygonetria conica, Tachygonetria dentata, Tachygonetria macrolaimus, Tachygonetria robusta, Tachygonetria dentata, Ozolaimus megatyphon, Oxyuris cirratus, Pseudalaeuris spp.) and cestodes (Oochoristica spp.) parasitizing reptiles.
Mechanism of albendazole action (a component of the drug) includes disorder of carbohydrate metabolism and microtubular function in worms causing death and excretion of parasites.
