Discussion of treatments for Trichinosis:

Trichinosis: DPD (Excerpt)

Several safe and effective prescription drugs are available to treat trichinosis. Treatment should begin as soon as possible and the decision to treat is based upon symptoms, exposure to raw or undercooked meat, and laboratory test results. (Source: excerpt from Trichinosis: DPD)

Parasitic Roundworm Diseases, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID (Excerpt)

A doctor can prescribe medicine only to relieve symptoms. There is no treatment for the infection. If the doctor diagnoses infection while the patient is still having digestive symptoms, standard antiparasite drugs can be used to dislodge some of the worms. Once encystment of the parasite has begun, treatment is for any symptoms. In most cases, the chances of recovery are good.

Thiabendazole may help patients with trichinosis if treatment is begun very early, during the incubation state. Corticosteroids can relieve the inflammatory reaction during the larval migration state, and the patient should take them with thiabenazole. Steroids could, however, prolong the intestinal phase of the infection. (Source: excerpt from Parasitic Roundworm Diseases, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)
