Thanks in advance for ur reply, Febin
Thank you for your query
There is no protocol which says that a child should be dewormed every year. Deworming should be done only if there are symptoms (worms in stool, anorexia, vague recurrent abdominal pain etc). As for the dose it is 200 mg for small children (15 mg/kg to be precise) but i strongly recommend you get your dosage from a pediatrician rather than self medication. And it should be given in the night before sleeping
Hope that helps
God bless you
