PHARMACY ONLY MEDICINE
DeWorm Extra Strength is a broad spectrum anti-worm medication, used for the treatment of threadworm, hookworm, whipworm, and roundworm infestations.
DeWorm Extra Strength works by inhibiting the uptake of glucose by the susceptible worms, leading to glycogen depletion and reduced generation of ATP required for survival. As a result, the parasites die or are immobilised slowly, and their clearance from the gastrointestinal tract may not be complete until the third day after treatment.
Available in packs of 6.
DeWorm Extra Strength contains lactose (dairy).
