Q.

Vermox SD

Hi doctor

Hope you are doing well.

The chemist gave me Vermox SD to deworm my 2 year old. He doesn''t have any worms - its just for the normal " once-a-year"  routine. Is it okay to use and is there any side effects I can expect?

Thank you so much.
MM

I am not happy about giving your 2 year old this form of Vermox. Children 2 years and under must have the regular Vermox Syrup and not the SD form. Please take the Vermox SD back to your pharmacist and change it for the regular Vermox Syrup.

Hi, I am concerned about my 2 year old not eating, he has no appetite, and hardly eats when he is hungry. He hates milk therefore I am still breastfeeding during the night (I am working during the day). It's not easy giving him syrups as he tends to throw up afterwards. your assistance is appreciated!

I HAVE FOUND A GREAT HERBAL DE-WORMING SYRUP CALLED HERBAMOX, MY CHILD WOULD NOT EAT, AS I STARTED TAKING HERBAMOX HE WAS HUNGRY AGAIN AND FULL OF ENGERGY.

Sorry doctor, I forgot to add - he finished a course of anitbiotics this morning for ear and throat infection. Is there a certain time limit before I can give him this deworming treatment.

Thank you once again
