Vermox is a synthetic oral anthelmintic drug with a low effect over the whole body and a broad spectrum of activity.
It is prescribed for the treatment of several types of infectious diseases (including severe ones) caused by multicellular parasitic helminths (worms).
The safety of Vermox has been studied in over 40 scientific studies involving human subjects. The drug has been proven to be highly effective for infections caused by one or more types of worms that live in the intestines.
- Brand Name: Vermox;
- Active Ingredient: Mebendazole;
- Manufacturer: Janssen Pharms.
Vermox and its drug substance Mebendazole
Vermox is also known by the name of its active substance, Mebendazole. The drug is available in the form of tablets intended for oral intake.
Known effects of Mebendazole:
- It provides a destructive effect over the intracellular structures of worms;
- It interferes with the production of energy necessary for the survival of the parasite;
- It completely and quickly eliminates the parasites from the body;
- It is highly active against whipworms, pinworms, roundworms (Ascaris) and some other varieties of parasitic worms.
The active ingredient is poorly absorbed in the intestine and almost does not get into the bloodstream (no more than 10% of the dose). Thanks to this unique property, the drug remains in the gastrointestinal tract, where it provides the main therapeutic effect. At the same time, Mebendazole gets into various body fluids, where it also ensures an antiparasitic effect.
Indications for use
According to its licensed indications, Vermox is prescribed to people who have contracted the following helminthic infections:
Treatment regimens and dosages
Depending on the type of disease, there are two different Vermox dosage regimens with different intervals between doses:
- One 100 mg tablet approximately every 12 hours (for example, 8 am and 8 pm);
- Taking a total daily dose of 200 mg for 3 days in a row (total of 6 doses);
- With the diagnosis of enterobiasis, the patient is prescribed a single dose of 100 mg at any time of the day.
It is important to repeat the 100 mg dose after 14 days to prevent the development of new parasites.
Recommendations for use
- During the treatment, fasting or other special procedures are not required;
- If you are giving Vermox to a child, make sure he or she swallows the tablet;
- The tablet can be taken whole or chewed;
- You can crush the tablet and mix it with food;
- Fatty foods increase the absorption of Mebendazole, but do not significantly affect the expected therapeutic effect.
Under certain conditions, parasitic infections can be easily transmitted from one person to another. If a family member has an infection, the doctor may recommend a simultaneous course of treatment for the whole family.
Do not double doses and try not to forget taking them. If you forget to take a pill and it has been up to 4 hours since you normally take it, take the dose. If more than 4 hours have passed, skip this dose and follow the recommended dosage regimen.
- Don't take this medicine if you have a hypersensitivity (allergy) reaction to Mebendazole;
- The drug is not recommended for children under 2 years of age;
- With impaired liver function, take with caution;
- To prevent re-infection, follow the hygiene rules.
Use of Vermox during pregnancy
Pregnant women and young mothers did not take part in clinical trials of Mebendazole. So, it is not known what effect this active substance has on the fetus and baby. That's why if you are trying to conceive, breastfeeding or pregnant don't take Vermox.
Possible side effects
- Abdominal distension;
- Abdominal pain;
- Skin redness.
Many body reactions may not be the result of Vermox action, but the symptoms of a helminthic infection.
Mebendazole: interaction with other drugs
- The antiepileptic drugs Cerebyx (Fosphenytoin) or Dilantin (Phenytoin) may decrease blood levels of Mebendazole;
- Mebendazole may slow down the elimination of the cancer drug Otrexup (Methotrexate) from the body;
- Combination therapy with the antibacterial drug Flagyl (Metronidazole) increases the risk of skin adverse events, so do not take them together;
- Mebendazole with alcohol can be harmful for your liver.
Store Vermox in its original packaging at a room temperature. Don't store the medicine in the bathroom and any other place where temperature and humidity may vary.

Do you have a problem with pinworms in your family (itchy ass)? Vermox will solve this problem. I have three children, two are in kindergarten and one is a teenager. I have known about Vermox for many years and oh yes, IT WORKS.
I advise it for helminthic infection, tested on myself.
I'm very satisfied with the price. I will surely use this pharmacy again, but I hope for a different occasion.
Hello! I bought Vermox 100 mg, the pills work very fast and efficiently. I would recommend them to anyone with worms, and I hope I will never have these problems again.
A very good cure.
The best remedy for Ascaris. I gave Vermox to my 6-year-old child. No physical side effects, only a slight decrease in appetite.
Helpful service and such an easy ordering process.
I'm glad to see we're not alone. All adults and children in my home took 2 doses for 3 days. Children felt better on the second day. Everyone complained a little about feeling bad, but I don’t know if it was due to the drug or the infection. The price of the pills is affordable, so if you have to take them for all family members, you will not have any problems.
Very fast delivery.
Pinworms made me itch like hell at night. And I followed all the instructions step by step. On the first day of taking Vermox, the itching decreased, and on the third day the itching stopped. My biggest complaint is frequent nausea and one episode of vomiting.
I took Vermox with my husband and kids and it certainly helped!
I bought Vermox online. No problems, no prescriptions, and the drug works.
Vermox eliminated whipworms within 3 days. I had stomach cramps and nausea. Would I recommend taking it even if there are side effects? Yes, I would, especially considering the absolutely disgusting symptoms of the infection.
Fortunately, Ascaris treatment is cheap, safe and affordable. Thanks to Vermox.
I'm a student, and I'm 23. When the doctor said I had worms, I fucking hated him. Then I realized that no one can avoid it 100%, it's just life. Two tablets a day for three days helped me. I’m not a paranoiac, but now every time my butt itches, I worry.
I took Vermox for 3 days like most of us. All I felt was a slight nausea.
I was attacked by pinworms. I had an itchy anal area and other disgusting symptoms. First, I thought that the treatment would be difficult, but Vermox worked wonders. Just two pills and all problems were solved.
It works well. I'm happy.
The price of Vermox made me very happy.
I'm satisfied with the result, very effective for pinworms. I took one pill and one more pill 2 weeks later.
