Vermox (mebendazole)

Vermox is a treatment that treats threadworms and other types of worm infections of the gut. These worms infect the gut and cause discomfort and irritation around the anus and genitals, as well as sleepless nights, loss of appetite, and weight loss. The active ingredient in this medicine known as mebendazole gets to work straight away to kill the worms, reduce the symptoms, and clear the infection. Threadworms can be easily passed from one person to another and infect all members of your household if not they’re not treated fast. Treat the whole family when an outbreak of worms occurs, Vermox is suitable for adults and children over 2 years old and can be taken as tablets or as an oral suspension (liquid solution).

What is Vermox?

Vermox is a medication used to treat worm infections of the gut. The treatment is taken orally in either tablet or suspension (liquid solution) form. It can be used against various common types of worm infections including threadworms, whipworms, roundworms and hookworms. In either of its two forms, this treatment can be taken by adults and children aged 2 years old and above. Vermox belongs to a group of medicines identified as anthelmintics.

How does Vermox work?

Vermox contains the active ingredient mebendazole, which is able to stop worms which have infected the gut from absorbing essential sugars they need to survive. Within a couple of days, the lack of sugars will mean that the worms will die out and they are passed out of the body amongst faeces. Even when the worms have left the body, however, more Vermox may be required to avoid reinfection.

How do I take Vermox?

When taking Vermox in tablet form, the exact dosage will depend on the type of worms which have infected your gut. If your child is using this medication, then crush the tablet before giving it to them and supervise them while they take the treatment. The tablets can be either swallowed whole or chewed by adults.

When treating threadworms, you’ll take one tablet which should be enough to kill the parasites. Your doctor may instruct you to take a second tablet two weeks after you took the first in case of re-infection. When dealing with other types of worms, you’ll take one tablet on two occasions per day (one in the morning and one in the evening) for three consecutive days in total or as directed by your doctor.

If you are taking the suspension/liquid solution version of Vermox, then remember to always shake the bottle thoroughly before use. You should use the 5ml cup which should be contained in the medicine pack for measuring. Be sure to supervise your child if they are the one taking the treatment.

When dealing with threadworms, take one 5ml measuring cup (or spoonful) of suspension. This single dose will kill threadworms, but your doctor may advise taking a second dose two weeks later in case of re-infection.

If dealing with other types of worms, the 5ml measuring cup (or spoonful) of suspension is taken twice a day (morning and evening) for three consecutive days or as directed by your doctor.

What are the side effects of Vermox?

There are various side effects which could emerge as a result of taking Vermox, but the vast majority are uncommon so you may not have any such issues ever. One side effect which is commonly reported is stomach pain, but this should not last for a long time.

Rare side effects reported from users of this treatment include:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Trapped wind
  • Rash
  • Inflammation of the liver
  • Changes in liver enzymes
  • Reduction in white blood cells
  • Unusual hair loss
  • Dizziness

There is a small possibility that an allergic reaction might occur as a result of taking this medication. If this occurs, then you should stop taking the medication immediately and seek urgent medical treatment. Signs of an allergic reaction include the following:

  • Sudden swelling around the face or throat
  • Hives, severe irritation of your skin, reddening of your skin or blistering of your skin
  • Blistering around the mouth, eyes or genitals
  • Fits (convulsions)

Can I use Vermox?

Before you start using this medication, let your doctor or pharmacist know about any other medicines that you are currently taking or have recently used. This includes not just any other prescription medicine, but also any which you may have bought without a prescription, as well as herbal medicines, dietary supplements or vitamins. In particular, it’s important to mention if you are currently taking either Metronidazole (used for treating certain infections) or Cimetidine (used to treat excess stomach acidity).

Speak to your doctor for advice before taking Vermox if you are currently breast-feeding. Avoid using this treatment if you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant. Remember that this medicine (in either tablet or suspension form) is not deemed suitable for children aged below 2 years old.

You should not take this medicine if you’re allergic to any of its ingredients or if you’ve had an allergic reaction in the past to this medicine or a similar medicine. Allergy reactions can be serious so it’s important to avoid this medicine if you’re aware of an allergy to it.

What if I take too much Vermox?

If you take more tablets or oral suspension than you were meant to, then you should contact your doctor or nearest hospital emergency department right away. Take your medication and its information leaflet with you when seeing a doctor about this issue if possible.

What if I forget a dose of Vermox?

If you forget a dose of this medicine that you were meant to take during a certain time of the day, then skip this dose and take the next one at the usual time. Do not on any occasion take a double dose of this medication to make up for missing a previous dose.
