In brief: OTC antiminth (pyrantel)
Over-the-counter medicine such as antiminth (pyrantel) is very effective.
For an adult, 2-3 tabs taken once and repeat in 2 weeks.

Vermox is the medication for pinworms.
In the U.S., vermox is by prescription only. I have heard that in some other countries, pinworm medication is over-the-counter.
