Can you tell me what the risks of deworming tablets are to my baby?

Hi Alex,
I have just bought some worm tablets and they say to check with a doctor befor taking while pregnant. Can you tell me what the risks of deworming tablets are to my baby?

Answer: Hi, It is best not to take any medication that is not recommended during pregnancy. You need to visit your GP for a check up to see if you really need to be treated for worms as the medication more than likely has not been tested for any complications during pregnancy. Best wishes, Alex
