Hello. My child is 3 years old. Can I give deworming medicine after my child has taken the cold cough medicine? If possible, how long is the distance from the cough medicine to the worm medicine? thank you

1 Answer:

Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Some drugs are not allowed to be taken at the same time or close to the time because in the body, drug interactions can occur, where the interactions between these drugs can make the drug less impactful, have multiple effects, eliminate each other, strengthen each other or even become toxic to the body. So that your attention to the consumption of two or more drugs at once is right.


But what is difficult for us is because there are various types of deworming drugs, such as those containing albendazole, mebendazole, ivermectin, praziquantel, pyrantel pamoate, piperazine and niclosamide. And so it is with cough medicines as well as cold medicines in children. So because there are so many possible drug combinations that you are referring to, we cannot say for sure whether there are interactions between these drugs.


So to be safe, leave a minimum distance of a few hours between administering the drug, or you can ask a pediatrician about whether to take the two drugs together, or you can also make a new question, this time by including the contents of the two drugs.


What is clear, if after taking one of the two drugs your child causes symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, fever, abdominal pain or so on, immediately take your child to the doctor for further treatment. Meanwhile, keep your children healthy by providing them with footwear, especially if they are playing outside, giving them nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables, fruit and milk, getting enough fluids, and limiting their activities. We wish you and your family good health.


That's all, hope it helps.
