Should The Deworming Be Used Up Once?

Hello Irma, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

First of all, giving deworming to children under 1 year of age should always be consulted with a pediatrician first. Routine deworming (every 6 months), recommended for children 1 year and over. For children 1 year and under, usually deworming is only given if there is evidence of worm infection in the child.


Second, you should describe the deworming dosage form, whether the deworming syrup or tablets. The medicine in the form of syrup has a shorter shelf life when it is opened. Depending on the type of medicine, the opened syrup can only last between 2 weeks to 1 month. Sometimes there are certain syrups that can last up to 3 months. There are syrups that must be stored in the refrigerator after opening, some do not need to be stored in the refrigerator. You should read how to store this drug in the information on the medicine package. Medicines in tablet form can last longer, but just like syrup drugs, how long depends on the type of drug and how the medicine is stored.


If you want to give deworming medicine for routine administration only to your child who is over 1 year old, you can buy worm medicine in a single-use package so that the rest of the medicine is not wasted.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
