Vermox is used to treat infections caused by worms such as whipworm, pinworm, roundworm, and hookworm. It is also used to treat infections caused by more than one of these worms at the same time. Vermox is an antihelmintic, or anti-worm, medication. It prevents worms from growing or multiplying in your body. Vermox is also known as Mebendazole, Ovex, Antiox, Pripsen, Mebex, Wormin.
Vermox tablets may be swallowed, chewed, or crushed and mixed with food.
It may be up to 3 days after treatment before the worm is removed from your stomach and intestines. The amount of time it takes to cure the infection depends on how susceptible the worm is to Vermox, and how quickly your own digestive system is moving. If the infection has not been cured within 3 weeks, a second treatment may be necessary.
Treatment of family members and other close contacts may be necessary. Pinworm is spread very easily to others in close contact with the infected person.
If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Vermox suddenly.
