Thank you for the question.
Worms often do not have typical symptoms. In fact, this disease is quite a high prevalence in our country. In addition, the late handling of intestinal worms can disrupt the activity and productivity of sufferers, for example due to anemia, malnutrition, intestinal obstruction, and many other complications. Therefore, even though they do not experience the typical symptoms of intestinal worms, both children and adults are advised to consume worm medication regularly every 6-12 months.
Regarding your question, if there is an appropriate medical indication, it is no problem taking worm medicine more than 1 time. It's just that, you need to understand, not everyone understands what is called worms. Not only that, most worm medicines are not included in the class of over-the-counter medicines, so their use is only appropriate when prescribed by a doctor.
Therefore, it would be more appropriate if before consuming any worming medicine, first check yourself to the doctor.
I hope this helps.
