Is it safe to take deworming medicines while breastfeeding?

Hi I think my four year old son has tummy worms I m noticing this from couple of days that his tummy is swelling and he grinding his teeth at nite, now the problem is that I also have 15 month old daughter and I nurse her so can she get the worms too. And if a doc ask us all to go on deworming medicines so is it safe for me to take it cuz I m breastfeeding her.

Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.
Yes! you should deworm your son and if required then you can also take deworming tablet but after consulting your doctor and dose should be regulated.
Good luck.

Dr. Richa
