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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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.

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. ...Read more
?? 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. ...Read more
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.
Took Vermox monday night. Thursday now, a few hours from the time that I first took it. I still see pinworms. Is this normal? What do I do?
Possibly: The worms you saw may be dead or you may be seeing other dietary debris that appears to be worms. Most of us will treat using 2 doses a week apart to take care of stragglers. The vermox is a nerve toxin & very effective. Discuss with your pcp to be sure you are on the right track. ...Read more
