Vermox How to Take

Mebendazole belongs to the class of medications called anthelminthics. It is used to treat infections of several types of parasitic worms that live in the digestive system. These parasites include pinworms, roundworms, whipworms, and hookworms. Mebendazole has also been used to treat threadworms and large tapeworms. These parasitic infections are most common in the rural and developing regions of tropical and sub-tropical areas around the world.

Mebendazole is believed to work by preventing the worms from absorbing sugars, and by doing so, prevents the parasite from getting the energy needed for survival. Gradually, the worms die off, getting rid of the infection.

Vermox may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Vermox may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Vermox may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Vermox for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Vermox, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Vermox without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Vermox to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Vermox if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Free Delivery

Your medication is delivered directly to you at no added cost. We even offer same-day delivery in select locations.

Vermox Dosage

The dose of mebendazole depends on the type of worm you are treating.

To treat pinworms, adults and children greater than 2 years old should take 1 tablet on the first day, then 1 tablet 2 weeks later and a third tablet 4 weeks after the first tablet. The first dose will get rid of the worms, but not the eggs that the worm may have left behind. The second dose will get rid of the second batch of worms that may have hatched from the eggs. The final dose ensures that all the worms are gone.

To treat other types of infestations, 100 mg (1 tablet) of mebendazole should be taken twice a day for 3 days. If symptoms remain after 3 weeks, your doctor may suggest a second treatment.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Mebendazole may be taken with food or on an empty stomach. Tablets may be crushed or chewed if necessary to make it easier to take the medication.

It is important to take Vermox exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Vermox at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
