Q:

Small Tip for kids 1 year and above.
Kid who have turned one... as your doctor ( Paediatrician) to suggest baby syrup for deworming. Kids won't eat properly if they have worms in their stomach. so, as they turn 1 year old, deworming syrup should be given. After that...every 6months once give them.
( As I am not a doctor..its not right to suggest particular medicine /syrup. So please consult your doctor about dosage and syrup name)
Happy Monday...



Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Deworming is safe with very least side-effects, we shud ensure that our children are dewormed atleast once in a year to prevent Helminthiasis. (worm infestation)..
for 13-23months- single dose of 200mg z given
children above 2years-single dose of 400mg z given..
Again dosage and dose,both depends on severity of disease prevalent in environment..
