I have done much reading about worm killers....it is said that pyrantel is very safe....one could drink the whole bottle and nothing would happen....unlike many of the other remedies...however if you have a worm infection that is systemic...in blood, etc....start w/half dose and work up because can be detrimental to kill too many too quickly...coulld block up veins etc
