Who can use it?
Combantrin-1 can be used by both adults and children over 2 years of age. If you are Pregnant you should consult your doctor before using combantrin-1.
Important: As worms are highly contagious, you need to ensure that your whole family or household takes the worm treatment, whether they have shown the symptoms of worms or not.
Those with allergies to the ingredients should not take this medication. Caution should be taken if you suffer from acute liver disease or are taking the Cimetidine anti-ulcer medication. In either of these cases, long-term use of mebendazole can lead to excessive plasma concentration in the blood when the liver does not break down mebendazole sufficiently. If you use the anti-convulsant Carbamazepine, caution should also be taken.

How to Ensure You Get Free of Worms
Once you and your family have taken combantrin-1 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-1 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.
