Sorry to hear your Turaco isn't feeling well.
Symptoms of gapeworm are very similar to symptoms of all other respiratory problems, such as bacterial infection, mycoplasma, fungal infections etc. Over the counter products are also less effective than prescription medications for gapeworm/air sac mites. Air sac mites is fairly uncommon in a turaco. I would advise that you have her seen by an avian vet ASAP so that she can receive treatment with antibiotics/anti inflammatories as appropriate. I would recommend sticking to the manufacturers guidelines for this worming product, but usually one dose should be all that is required.
