This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

How Combantrin Works

Combantrin is effective against threadworm as well as the rare worms roundworm & hookworm, in a single dose. It contains pyrantel embonate, which works as a "neuro-muscular blocking agent" - effectively paralysing worms. Unable to move, worms are passed out in the faeces.

All human worming products will treat only adult worms present in the intestine at the time of taking the medication. They will not treat the eggs or immature worms & will not protect you or your children from contracting threadworm if you are exposed to it again. So it's advisable to check roughly 2 weeks after the initial dose to ensure a second dose is not required.

Preventing reinfestation

Here is a handy checklist to help prevent reinfestation of threadworm in your home:

As threadworm are highly contagious, ensure the WHOLE FAMILY has been treated with Combantrin - including Mum & Dad.

Threadworm eggs may be left on common household surfaces, so give your home a thorough clean. Vacuum carpets & wash floors, clothes & bedding with hot water, to kill any remaining eggs. Don't forget the favourite teddy or security blanket, & take care not to shake linen when removing bedclothes - you could be spreading infectious eggs into the air.

Shower rather than bathe for several days after treatment, to dislodge any remaining eggs from the anal region.

Snug underpants fitted to children at night may make it harder to scratch, therefore reducing the risk of eggs transferring to fingers.

Wash hands thoroughly & encourage children to do the same, especially after going to the toilet Ensure fingernails are kept short & scrubbed clean.

Discourage children from sharing food & placing objects in their mouths.


- Notify your friends & the school / kindy that you have treated for threadworm. Informing others will help to break the cycle of threadworm infestation.
