Ovex Family Pack - Threadworm Tablets

Threadworm, sometimes called pinworm is a very common problem in children. It can spread easily to adults and other family members. Common threadworm symptoms include an itchy bottom or vagina, particularly at night.

Ovex is a single dose medicine used in adults and children to treat threadworm of the intestines. Its active ingredient mebendazole works by starving the worms in the gut of glucose, which they need to thrive. A single dose of the treatment kills off the worms but doesn’t destroy their eggs. The eggs can survive for up to two weeks outside the body, so it is often recommended that the whole family is treated to help avoid recurring infections.

If symptoms continue, tell your doctor. In the case of re-infection, a second tablet can be taken after two weeks.

How to Use Ovex Threadworm Tablets

Take one tablet only. A single tablet is sufficient for killing off all the worms. An overdose will not be more effective. Chew or swallow the tablet whole. Crush tablet before giving to young children 2 yrs and over

A single dose of one Ovex tablet or one 5ml spoonful of Ovex suspension is usually all that is needed, but a second dose can be taken after two weeks if the infection comes back. It is recommended that the whole family are treated at the same time.

Ovex Side Effects

Side effects are rare, although stomach pain is relatively common. Uncommon side effects include diarrhoea and wind. Rare side effects that have been reported include unusual hair loss, dizziness, convulsions or allergic reactions. If you do experience any side effects, you should consult your doctor straight away.

Keep this medicine out of the sight and reach of children. Do not give to children under the age of 2.

How Long Does Ovex Take to Work?

Ovex works by preventing the threadworms absorbing sugar, which means they should die within a few days. This medication is 90-100% effective at killing the threadworms, but it doesn't kill the eggs. This is why the hygiene measures outlined below should also be followed for 6 weeks.

Ovex works by preventing the threadworms from absorbing glucose (sugar) which results in the threadworms dying off within a few days. It does not kill the eggs which is why treatment needs to be continued for as long as it takes to successfully treat the infection.
