|Nah.. it's just taking some pills, that's it. Your humans may have an "interesting" time though - the pill makes the worms come out through your poo (sometimes alive). If you already have quite a bit of worms, your poo will look like aliens for a few days.
If your parents are extra paranoid (like my parents) or if you have exquisite doggie taste and like gobbling up unusual objects (like poos of various domisticated and wild animals), you might want to talk to your vet about putting you on a scheduled deworming. I take an all-dewormer every three months whether I have worms or not just as a safety precaution. This method is pretty popular in Europe, and if you can stick to schedule, you can avoid the hassles of visiting your vet EVERYTIME you need to get dewormed. It gives my parents a peace of mind because they don't need to freak out every time I lick stuff from the ground. If you think about it, parasites can exist anywhere - you can get it from licking the butt of a dog that has parasites, eating their poo, from dirt on the ground, etc.
