“It worked for me. After the first dose I saw the worms coming out. It’s really gross, I was traumatized at first but you get desensitized to the horror. My Dr prescribed it to me for 14 days in rotation with ivermectin and biltricide. Parasites are insanely hard to get rid of and you need pharmaceutical medications to do it.”

Reese's Pinworm Medicine (pyrantel): “I have had this infection along with my 2 year old for 4 months now, this medicine does not work. We have taken several doses and have had no relief. They have since migrated to the vaginal area. I'm afraid I will die with this infection. Nothing helps.”

Pin-X (pyrantel): “We found pinworms in our 6 y.o. son first then later I started to feel the symptoms myself. We treated all family. It seems to help my son better than me - I still have symptoms. I took it three times already, but it doesn't really work that well. ”

Pin-X (pyrantel): “Tastes like cake batter... not as bad as other medicines... works as long as you wash & thoroughly clean your house for several days after treatment as well as treat your ENTIRE family even if you think they have it or not!”
