Do I Need Prescription To Buy Vermox
How many times can I take mebendazole, if I already took 3x1 dose for the prescription. (like weeks after) but I still have worm infection?
No limit, but: If the treatment is not working, the assumption that you have pin worms may be wrong. Peri-anal itching is common to many food intolerance and other problems. It might be worth a real PW test to see if they are there. Mebendazole is a simple neuro-toxin to the worm and is given for prolonged periods at higher doses to treat other types of infections.
Do you need a prescription to get Ivermectin or mebendazole, or any other antibiotics that kill pinworms? Australia.
Very different: Flagyl is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. Commonly used for infections that involve gut bacteria or infections in pelvic region, including some STD's. Vermox in an antihelminthic medication, which means it treats parasites, mainly worms of various types. We don't have lots of worm infestations in the U.S. except for pinworms, but worldwide worm infections are common.
No: Metronidazole has been used but most times the organism is a commensal not a pathogen. That is, it eats with you, not you.
Icky worms...: Give it until day seven, then retreat at day seven if they are still a problem. Wash hands! Antihistamines can help for the itchiness! Best of luck!See 1 more doctor answer
I took vermox, its the drug that kills worms so I took two a day for three day. How long does it stay in your system as I have terrible side effects.
1/2 life 6 hours: The half life is short, 3-6 hrs. It should be largely cleared 1-2 days.See 1 more doctor answer
I gave Vermox to my 28 mnth daughter to deworm. Forgot to give her last dose an instead gave after a day in the night. Will it affect the deworming?
No problem: It should have no effect on her deworming.
Likely safe: We use much higher doses for a long period to treat some conditions. However, I would wonder why it would be needed. An adult rarely gets pin worms, which is one of the few things this dose would treat. They also rarely get re-infected. However, some assume that an itchy bottom must be due to this agent, while there are many other possibilities.See 1 more doctor answer
Same ingredient: Ovex and Vermox are both brand names of a drug uses to treat pinworms. Vermox has been discontinued in the US. I find a listing of Ovex in the UK, apparently not available here either. Mebendazole is not available in the US, so pyrantel preparations (Pin-X or Reese's pinworm) are available OTC (no prescription needed). Hope that helps
Don't scratch: The pinworms will die quickly. However, the problem with having an itchy butt is the "itch-scratch" cycle: you scratch, which makes you itch, which makes you scratch, and so on. The key is to leave your butt alone: don't scratch, don't overwipe, and don't wash with soap. Easier said than done, but it will get better.See 1 more doctor answer
?? pinworms??: Itching has little to do with live pinworms. It is caused by a skin reaction to the glue like material in which PW eggs are deposited around the anus. That reaction, like any allergic dermatitis can cause itching until it heals, which may be weeks. Application of hydrocortisone cream to the area can reduce itching and speed healing.See 1 more doctor answer
I have been experiencing terrible side effects of Vermox for the last 8 days. I took 2 a day for 3 days. I do not live in usa.
When should 2nd dose of Vermox be taken? One doctor told me 2 weeks after the first and another told me 10 days. Should I take an average and do 12?
Vermox: 2nd dose is recommended after 2 wks. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
