Take Worm Medicine To Expel Worms Through The Stool?
Hello, I am afraid of taking worm medicine because some say if the worm comes out when the bowel is intact even some say it is still alive, it’s horrifying. If the combantrin worm medicine comes out intact or destroyed?
Thank you for the question.
As an effort to prevent worm infections, consumption of worm medicine is recommended to be done every 6 months. There are many types of worm medicine, with different mechanisms of action and indications for administration. Most of these worm medicines do not belong to the class of over-the-counter medicines, so their consumption should ideally be done after you have seen a doctor directly. So, don't consume it carelessly ...
The worm medicine you mentioned (combantrin) contains the active composition of pyrantel pamoate. With this drug consumption, several types of worms, such as pinworms, hookworms and roundworms can be overcome. This drug is able to paralyze and expel worms in the digestive tract with feces. When out with feces, worms that have been paralyzed can be destroyed, or it can still be in intact form. This certainly cannot be ascertained just by knowing the type of medicine.
At first glance, it's terrible to see a worm that comes out with feces. However, compared to the danger posed by intestinal worms, of course this terrible sensation is not much. The good thing is, you don't need to worry too much. Check yourself first to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine to be given advice on the type of worm medicine that is suitable for your condition.
I hope this helps.
