Why are Vomirid and Zofran prescribed for a toddler?

Hi Doctor, my three year old son has been scratching his rectum, and some times grinding his teeth since last week. I doubted it to be due to worms in his stomach and on the 9th of this month gave him 10ml of Bendex syrup. Still I could see him having discomfort when sitting down, he constantly moves his buttocks and scratches his rectum. Yesterday that is the 16th I took him to a doctor , who prescribed few tablets - vomirid-MD, zofton-OZ, sporlac-DS and Epispas. Now I want to know if these are for worm eradication?

Hello,

I have gone through the drug list you have mentioned. Yes, all these drugs are directly or indirectly used for worm infection. So better to continue with same drugs for atleast 3-4 weeks.

Get done stool examination and ultrasound abdomen after 3 weeks. Avoid outside food.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,

Dear Doctor, I’m a very frustrated mother as my 18th months old baby is suffering from cold for the past 4 months. No matter what medicine my doctor prescribes, he never responds to any. All these 4 months time I have been experiencing sleepless nights. He suffers a lot during day time with stuffy and runny nose. He’s weight is 10kg and has no appetite at all. He hardly eats but surviving on my breast milk. My main concern is that he does not get sleep in the night due to blocked nose. He scrolls all over the bed and finally cries. I am greatly being thankful if any of you can give me advice on this matter as I no longer be able to watch him suffering.

My Daughter is now 2 Years and 12 Days Old. Last Few days, She is suffering from Cold & Cough. Our Doctor prescribed ‘Cefoprox’ and Cough Syrup and also advised to take Inhaler “BUDECORT-200” regularly. My question, is it really required to take the Inhaler regularly as she has no Asthma problem ? Also, is it safe for a 2 years old Child ?
