Is Zentel effective at treating stomachache due to worms?
My 4 year 10 month old son is grinding his teeth and is complaining of stomach pain occasionally especially during nights. Should i deworm him..if yes i have zentel(albendazole IP 400 mg) syrup with me. Can i give and if yes pls let me know about the dosage. His weight is 18 kg
Note : He's on three AEDs lamictal frisium and sodium valproate twice a day. Does that interfere with the above medicine.
First of all get the cause ruled out.
Thanks for the query..
Teeth grinding can be due to his underlying medical condition for which he is taking anti epileptic drugs.
Secondly stomach ache can be due to infection, in digestion or worms in stomach.
But you should not proceed with deworming until you get him diagnosed.
So first consult a Paediatrician and get him evaluated and a stool culture and microscopy can be done for confirmation..
Hope this helps..
Any level of stress in body can also be a cause.
Teeth grinding can also be due to stressful conditions.
If your son has pain in any part of body like he has stomachache, it can also be a cause for teeth grinding..
So once you should get him examined properly.
He can get better once the pain subsides..
