My son is 1.6 years old can I give him bendex? If yes, how much should be dosage.

1 Doctor Answered
Bendex is given when child suffers from Worm infestation. Government also supplies it and gives it to children every six months. If you are giving it for precaution from worms then give 5 ml (200 mg) once. (In this case if your baby has received any worm medicine in last 6 months then better not to give) If your baby is having worms in the stool then give one more dose after 14 days.
