    The most common treatment for tapeworm infection is an oral medication that is toxic to the parasite.  These drugs will only affect the adult tape worms, not their eggs, so it is imporatant to have a follow-up visit with your doctor to ensure you are not harboring any more parasites.  See the Mayo clinic website for specific drug names and alternative treatments for more invasive infections.
