Now I receive 5 tablets praziquantel once a year, administered twice in 4 hours interval. I wonder if there is any other way to treat schistosomiasis. I feel bad during the treatment since the tablet has a very foul smell. I keep on vomiting.

I received praziquantel 60 mg per kg body weight, 3 doses 4 hours apart for schistosomiasis. And now I feel worse and need to go back to the doctor.
