How to use

Check the foil is not broken before use. If it is, do not give that tablet.

This medicine will kill threadworms. However, it may not destroy their eggs, which can cause reinfection and also infect other people. In cases of reinfection, a second tablet may be given or taken after 2 weeks.
It is therefore recommended that all members of the family (except pregnant or breastfeeding women or children under 2 years), living in the same house, are treated at the same time and that precautions are taken to prevent reinfection.
