It is not essential but can be done for safety. Do not ever give cats products not meant for them like dog or human medication unless prescribed by a proper vet because these can be fatal to cats. And if you do test yourself for worms do not use cat or dog products unless prescribed by a proper doctor. Thankyou.

It is never safe to give someone medicine without a doctor's advice. I would strongly suggest contacting poison control if this happens.

That said, generally the dose of medicine in a deworming tablet for a cat is pretty small; a typical cat weighs about ten pounds, a typical human fifteen times as much, so a human would need fifteen deworming pills to get the same effect a cat gets from one. However, this is not a good thing to try, even with only one pill; there are medicines, largely harmless to humans, that kill cats, so it is possible that a medicine specific to cats could harm humans.
