A chocolate flavoured wormer.
Each Combantrin chocolate square contains pyrantel embonate equivalent to 100mg pyrantel and is used for the treatment of pinworm / threadworm. One packet of 24 Combantrin chocolate squares contains enough squares to treat approximately two adults and two children.
Other worms: Roundworm and hookworm infections can also be treated with Combantrin chocolate squares but you should seek medical advice before beginning treatment if you suspect that you have either of these worm infections because they are often difficult to diagnose.
Each Combantrin chocolate square contains pyrantel embonate equivalent to 100mg pyrantel.
Combantrin chocolate squares contain no gluten or artificial colours, to the equivalent to less than 0.3% W/W. The chocolate squares do contain lactose, sucrose and artificial flavours. The appearance of the chocolate squares may alter slightly with storage but this does not affect the quality or effectiveness of the product.
Dosage: Adults and children should take one 100mg square for every 10kg of body weight (the equivalent of 10mg of pyrantel per 1 kg of weight). This should be taken as a single dose, with fluid, after food.
