Brief Answer:
Overall safe.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Bandy (Albendazole) is a deworming agent which is safe to be given in children of this age provided that there is no active gastrointestinal infection. So, unless there are manifestations like diarrhea and vomiting, you can feel free to give it at night.

Regards,
Dr. Diptanshu Das, Pediatrician
