For more information on the prescription medication patients should refer to the Ovex Tablets patient information leaflet.

Ovex contains the active ingredient mebendazole, an anthelmintic medicine. It works by preventing worms from absorbing sugars that they need in order to survive. This results in the depletion of the energy stores of the worms, leading to their eventual death within a few days. The dead worms will be excreted from the guts in the stools.

The medication can kill the adult worms but not their eggs. It is necessary to practice good hygiene after the Ovex treatment. You should avoid swallowing eggs, which will cause a new infection.

You should take the following measures to avoid swallowing eggs of worms:

  • Wash your hands and scrub under the nails after going to the toilet, and before preparing or eating food.
  • Wear underwear or pyjamas in bed.
  • Keep fingernails short and clean. Avoid biting your nails or sucking your fingers.
  • Bath or shower in the morning instead of doing it before bed. This will wash any eggs that were laid in the anus area overnight.

Ovex is effective in controlling infections caused by worms. It effectively prevents the worms from absorbing sugar, leading to their eventual death.

The use of Ovex should be accompanied by practising good hygiene because the medicine can kill adult worms but not their eggs. Practising good hygiene will prevent the swallowing of worm eggs, which will eventually grow within the body and cause an infection.

Ovex tablets may be taken with food or without food. The tablet may be swallowed whole or may be chewed. When the tablet is given to young children, it should be crushed.

For the treatment of threadworm, not only the person who has infection should take Ovex. The whole family should take Ovex because threadworms easily spread. The whole family should take the medicine at the same time even if they do not have symptoms.

If symptoms do not disappear or improve within a few days of taking the medicine, you should consult your doctor.

People who are allergic or intolerant to any of the ingredients of Ovex should not take the medications. Check first the ingredients of the medicine listed in the leaflet that comes with Ovex to find out if there is something there that you may be allergic to.

For the treatment of pinworm infections, Ovex is usually given a single dose. If needed, a second treatment may be given in a few weeks. For other types of common worm infections, Ovex should be taken by mouth for 3 days, usually twice a day in the morning and in the evening, or as directed by your doctor. If necessary, a second treatment may be given in a few weeks.

For other types of worm infection, take the medication as directed by your doctor. In some cases, your doctor may order you to take Ovex more than twice a day and for longer than 3 days.

Take Ovex as prescribed by your doctor. Do not skip any dose. Continue taking the medication until the full course of treatment is completed. Stopping the medication too early may result in the return of the infection.

You can safely buy Ovex online at UK Meds. You will need to have first an online consultation with a pharmacist independent prescriber before your order will be supplied. The online consultation will ensure that Ovex is the right medication for your medical condition.
