Combantrin Pirantel Pamoat is for treatment infection caused by worms. For adults and children.
Pyrantel exerts its anthelmintic effect by interfering with the neuromuscular function of the parasite. It is also a cholinesterase inhibitor and a ganglionic stimulant.
Indications And Clinical Uses: For the treatment of infection with any of the following gastrointestinal parasites when these are present either alone or as a mixed infection. Enterobius vermicularis (threadworm, pinworm) Ascaris lumbricoides (roundworm), Ancylostoma duodenale (hookworm), Necator americanus (hookworm), Trichostrongylus colubriformis and T. orientalis.
Pyrantel should be used for the treatment of infection with one or more of these parasites in both adults and children. It is well tolerated and will not stain the oral mucosa upon ingestion or the clothing by fecal contamination. The presence of an infection with any of the 5 parasites in one member of a family or group of persons in close proximity may indicate unidentified infection in other members. In these circumstances, pyrantel administration to all the family or group members is recommended. (Rigorous cleaning of living quarters and clothing to destroy helminthic ova will help prevent reinfection.)
