For treatment of intestinal worm infestation.
Vermox is a worm treatment containing the active ingredient mebendazole, which is used to control threadworm infestations. With very few exceptions, Vermox can be taken by the whole family and features a very simple dosage system. A spoonful in of the liquid (suspension), is all that is required for each family member,providing they are over 2 years of age.
The active ingredient in Vermox is mebendazole. This is an anthelmintic agent, meaning an agent designed to destroy parasitic intestinal pinworms / threadworms, that acts to inhibit the absorption of sugars by the worms. It does this by interfering with the proteins in either the worm’s intestine or its absorptive cells, therefore starving it of the energy necessary to survive.
What else should I know?
The active ingredient Vermox is mebendazole. 100mg/5ml
For the banana-flavoured liquid suspension, the dosage is one 5ml spoonful each. Shake the bottle well before use. If threadworm reinfection occurs after two weeks, then repeat the treatment.
It should not be taken by children under two years of age and it should not be taken during pregnancy.
