Retarded growth - 2.5 year old baby girl
My 2.5 year old baby girl weighs 11.3 kgs and measures 87 cms. My pediatrician found that there are worms in her stomach as result of which she has not been gaining weight and growing and has become anaemic. She prescribed zentel ( Albendazole Oral Suspension IP ) 10 ml and asked me to start her on iron supplement Raricap L Strides Shashun - 5 ml per day. I want to know how long can I continue giving her the same. Does it have any side effect on prolonged use ?
