Ovex Suspension 30ml

Threadworm (Enterobius vermicularis) is a parasitic worm that infests the intestines of humans. Both children and adults can be infected, although it's mostly found in children. They look like small pieces of white thread, hence the name threadworm. The first symptom is usually anal and/or vaginal itching. Without treatment, threadworms may give rise to vaginitis (inflammation of the vagina) in girls and women. You can often see threadworms, a 1cm thread-like worm, wriggling in your child's stools or their bottom. In addition, this is only 1 of the malicious worms that can harm the body.  So thank you science for the existence of Ovex suspension, Ovex suspension is a medicine that is specifically designed to treat and combat threadworm in adults and children over the age of 2. However, if you need it to address someone under the age mentioned above, you will need to see a doctor. It is recommended that the whole family should be treated with Ovex at the same, even if only some members are showing symptoms. Ovex prevents the growth and multiplication of newly hatched insect larvae in your body. Ovex treats infections caused by works such as pinworm, whipworm, hookworm, and roundworm. The ingredients that Ovex suspension is comprised of are Sucrose, Microcrystalline cellulose and carmellose sodium, Methylcellulose, Methylparahydroxybenzoate (E218), Propylparahydroxybenzoate (E216), Sodium laurilsulfate, banana flavour, citric acid monohydrate, and purified water.

How should I take Ovex Suspension and what dosage? 

Before use, Ovex suspension is for oral use only. For adults and children, you should take a 5ml spoonful of Ovex suspension as a single dose, it is as simple as that. If symptoms have not disappeared after 72 hours, you should consult a doctor. A second dose of 5ml should be taken once more after 2 weeks if the threadworm infection comes back. Do not overuse as there is a potential risk of overdose if used irresponsibly.

How does Ovex suspension work? 

The way Ovex suspension does its wonderful job is via its main active ingredient, mebendazole, which in itself is a medicine explicitly designed fo treat nefarious internal worms. Mebendazole works by stopping the worms from being able to absorb the body's internal sugars that are essential for survival. By doing this, it depletes the energy stores that the worms need, eventually leading to their death within just a few days. The dead worms are then extracted from the gut in the stools. Although Ovex suspension kills the adult worms, it doesn't do the same to their eggs, so it's extremely important to be very thorough with hygiene, even after the initial treatment. Doing this avoids the risk of a new infection.

How long do I take Ovex suspension? 

As previously stated, Ovex suspension combats multiple malicious worms, if the worm is a Threadworms, the length of the dosage should be just 1 single dose, and that's it. If symptoms haven't disappeared after 72, you should consult a doctor. Also, if the threadworm appears once more after 2 weeks, take another single dose. For other worms such as whipworm, roundworm, and hookworm, follow a doctors' instructions on how to take mebendazole. You need to take a dose 2 times a day for 3 days.
