Because taking Zentel Medicine while pregnant carries dangers for the growing fetus, it is typically not advised. Albendazole can be harmful, particularly in the first trimester when the developing baby's organs are being affected. The FDA has classed it as a Category C medicine, which indicates that while there are sufficient human trials, animal research have revealed negative consequences.

Weighing the advantages and disadvantages of any necessary treatment, it should be administered under close medical supervision. It is recommended that women who are fertile adopt appropriate contraceptive measures both throughout their treatment and for a month following the end of their medication. Always seek individual guidance from your healthcare provider.
