Description

For treatment of intestinal worm infestation.

Vermox has a drug name of Mebendazole  and belongs to the family of medicines called anthelmintics  . Anthelmintics are medicines used in the treatment of worm infections.

 

Mebendazole is used to treat:

 

Common roundworms (ascariasis);

Hookworm infections (uncinariasis);

Pinworms (enterobiasis; oxyuriasis);

Whipworms (trichuriasis); and

More than one worm infection at a time.

This medicine may also be used for other worm infections as determined by your doctor.

 

Mebendazole works by keeping the worm from absorbing sugar (glucose). This gradually causes loss of energy and death of the worm.

 

For patients taking mebendazole for hookworms, roundworms, or whipworms :

 

To help clear up your infection completely, take this medicine exactly as directed by your doctor for the full time of treatment . In some patients a second course of this medicine may be required to clear up the infection completely. Do not miss any doses .

For patients taking mebendazole for pinworms :

 

To help clear up your infection completely, take this medicine exactly as directed by your doctor . A second course of this medicine is usually required to clear up the infection completely.

Pinworms may be easily passed from one person to another, especially in a household. Therefore, all household members may have to be treated at the same time. This helps to prevent infection or reinfection of other household members. Also, all household members may have to be treated again in 2 to 3 weeks to clear up the infection completely.

For patients taking mebendazole for infections in which high doses are needed:

 

Mebendazole is best taken with meals, especially fatty ones (for example, meals that include whole milk or ice cream) . This helps to clear up the infection by helping your body absorb the medicine better. However, if you are on a low-fat diet, check with your doctor .
