Olworm Plus Oral Suspension is an anti-worm medicine given to treat a multitude of parasitic worm infestations such as roundworm and tapeworm infections in children. It works by paralyzing and restraining the worms from absorbing the body’s energy, leading to their eventual death.
Give Olworm Plus Oral Suspension to your child by mouth, preferably with a fat-containing food such as milk. This will help your child’s body absorb this medicine better. In case your child vomits within 30 minutes of taking Olworm Plus Oral Suspension, give the same dose again. Do not double the dose if it is time for the next dose. The duration of the treatment will depend on the type of worm your child is infected with.
Usually, it is given as a single dose. Your child’s doctor may prescribe repeating this dose after two weeks to prevent re-infection. However, some specific types of infections may require you to give this medicine to your child for a few days to weeks. In such a case, you must give this medicine for the exact prescribed number of days as stopping it too soon may cause re-infection.
Nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headache, abdominal pain, flatulence, loss of appetite, hair fall, mild fever, and sore throat are some of the common yet temporary side effects of this medicine. In some rare cases, this medicine may cause bleeding which is a serious side effect of this medicine. Make sure to report to your child’s doctor if these side effects persist or become bothersome or if your child experiences bleeding.
