If you suffer from an acute liver disease you should not use this product. Those with allergies to the ingredients should not take Combantrin Adult strength tablets.

How to Ensure You Get Free of Worms

Once you and your family have taken the correct dosage of combantrin chocolate squares you will also need to take the following steps to rid your home environment of worm eggs and prevent reinfection:

  • hotwash all bed linen and clothes (don't shake linen as it will spread the eggs)
  • vacuum the home thoroughly - especially around the bed, wash floors
  • keep fingernails short, wash hands and ensue your children do too, especially after going to the toilet
  • try and stop your children from sharing food and placing objects in their mouths

 

A Second dose of Combantrin may be Needed

All worm treatments only kill adult worms present in the gut at the time the medication is taken. They do not kill eggs or immature worms and will not protect you from contracting Pinworms/Threadworms if you are exposed to them again.

For that reason, it is a good idea to re-check for worms 2-4 weeks after the first dose to ensure a second dose is not required. This second dose will kill the remaining worms that were eggs at the time the first dose was taken.

 

Are there any Side Effects?

Side effects form Combantrin-1 are unusual but can include diarrhea or abdominal pain. These are often only short term side effects and are possibly be related to the size of the threadworm infestation. See your doctor if the symptoms persist.
