Vermox is an antihelmintic, or anti-worm, medication. It precludes worms from growing or reproduction within your organism.
Use Vermox for treatment of infections caused by worms precisely as your doctor directs.
- Follow the instructions on the pack, unless your doctor prescription is different.
- Vermox tablets may be swallowed, chewed, or masticated and blended with meal.
- The treatment may take up to 3 days until the worm is removed from your stomach and bowels. The duration of treatment of the infection depends on worm’s susceptibility to Vermox, and on the rate of your digestive system. In the case the infection has not been cured in 3 weeks, there is a strong possibility that a recurring Vermox course is necessary.
- It may be necessary for your family members and other intimate contacts to undergo a Vermox course as well, for pinworm is transferred very easily to those who in relations with the infected person.
Consult your health care provider about Vermox usage if you do not understand how to use it.
