After using the drug by mouth, tetramisole is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal system, reaching the maximum concentration in tissues and organs after 60 minutes after administration and maintaining the concentration level during the day. Excretion of the drug from the body occurs mostly with urine and to a lesser extent with fecal masses.
