Piperazine in the treatment of threadworms



Piperazine in the treatment of threadworms



British Medical Journal, 2: 4848, 1272-1273



Mild side effects occurring in some adult cases of enterobiasis after treatment with piperazine hydrate syrup included giddiness, lack of co-ordination, sickness, inability to focus vision and a sense of detachment. These effects are attributed to excessive dosage resulting from variations in the size of the tablespoon in which the dose was measured. When filled to the maximum with the syrup, the contents of nine different spoons varied from 6 drachms 10 minims to 9 drachms 50 minims.
