Q.

Zentel

Dr my son is 2jr 8 months old. His Pead has prescribed Zentel for him, 20ml. I tried to give it a week ago, he gave it a little sip with a straw and said it tastes bad, then I''ve put the rest in his milk, he smelled and gave little sip and said no...I don''t think he got much in...So I baught a new bottle of 20ml, must I try and give the whole 20ml now? Do I need to give less because he had a tiny bit a week ago? Can I overdose if I give 20ml now, again?

The problem is you have no idea how much your son has teken of the Zentel, so it would be safest to leave this medicine now. Wait 4 weeks and then give him Vermox Syrup 5ml twice daily for 3 days.
