Camallanus worms

Hi all i have been unlucky enough to get 3 of my tanks infected with these horrible red worms (camallanus) have treated with ABSOLUTE+ WORMER for last 4 days and been adding Fenbendazole to thier food but i think a few are now constipated but cannot find a set amount of epsom salts to add to the tank, they are 20 gal (uk) no shrimp or snails but does have a few plants, anyone can advise on the amount per gallon for epsom salts for putting in the tank (not making a bath seperate for them) the fish in the tanks are guppies including newborns.

You want Levamisole HCI for the worm .
Fenbendazole only works if eaten . Too often the infected fish won't eat enough to get properly dosed so medicated food is hit or miss.
Here is info and where to get Levamisole HCI ;
Levamisole, Flatworm Exit active ingredient Flubendazole & other chemicals for the aquarium
Camallanus Treatment - Use of Levamisole HCl
I also have levamisole if you can't get ahold of Charles ..

Thanks for reply , the Fenbendazole is added to the food,the wormer plus has Flubendazole as main ingrediant so is added to the water, I live in uk so cannot get Hci, altho i have ordered esha ndx which i belive is Levamisole as main ingredient but until that comes (going to be around a week) i need the right dose for epsom salt for my tanks to stop the constapation.
