What is Ovex Tablets

Ovex tablets are the best choice in terms of treating threadworms effectively. This medicine contains mebendazole as its effective ingredient, which helps manage your infection ideally and prevents you from infecting other people.

How effective are Ovex tablets?

Ovex tablets contain mebendazole, which belongs to a group of medicine called anthelmintics, which is known to help kill parasitic worms, including pinworms. Taking Ovex tablets allows you to deprive the worms of the sugar they need to survive in your body. Doing that helps kill the threadworms fast hence enabling you to treat your condition effectively and reduce the chances of spreading it. 

Also, due to the popularity of the Ovex tablets, scientists decided to do thorough research to see whether the product deserved all the praise. They conducted several studies involving about 70 people with threadworms and gave a percentage of them different doses of Ovex tablets depending on the severity of their infections. These scientists also administered different medications to a number of these patients to see which was more effective. After about a week, these experts noted that the patients who used Ovex tablets had treated their pinworms faster and more effectively compared to those who used other medications. Therefore, Ovex tablets are a very effective medication for threadworms that everyone should consider using.

What dose should I choose?

This medication is usually in a packet of about four tablets and is mostly suitable for adults and children above four years old. You only need one tablet to treat your infection. So, it would be best if you observed some improvements within a few days of using Ovex tablets. If you don’t see any changes, then talk to your doctor to determine the exact reason. The doctor might offer you a different alternative or advise you to take another dose of this medication after about two weeks.

How should I take Ovex tablets?

You can either swallow or chew the Ovex tablets. If these tablets are for a child, then you should crush them to make it easier to swallow. Also, these tablets can be taken with or without food hence making them helpful during any situation. Also, since threadworms are contagious, the whole family should take Ovex tablets at the same time once one member is infected. Reading the instructions that come with these tablets is also crucial as it helps you understand how to use this medication better to help avoid side effects, if any.

How do Ovex tablets work?

Ovex tablets use the active ingredient mebendazole to kill threadworms. How? This ingredient works by preventing pinworms from absorbing the vital sugars they need to survive in your body. Doing that weakens the threadworms as they lack energy, which eventually kills them in several days. The dead threadworms are then excreted from the body in your stools.

Using Ovex tablets helps to kill the adult threadworms but not the eggs. Therefore, you must maintain good hygiene after the treatment to help get rid of the eggs and also perform other vital practices to ensure you don’t catch another infection.

How long do I take Ovex tablets for before I notice a difference?

Taking one dose of this medication allows you to notice some significant changes after about 2 or 3 days. However, some people may take even a week before feeling the full benefits of Ovex tablets. If you take these tablets and you don’t feel any improvements, then consult a doctor to get help and proper advice on what to do next to treat your condition.

What are the side effects of Ovex tablets?

Every medication can cause some side effects. However, not every user experiences side effects as they affect people differently. The following are some of the most common side effects that you might experience:

  2. Stomach pain and discomfort

When shouldn’t I take Ovex tablets?

  1. You are allergic to mebendazole, or any other ingredient in this medication

  2. You are pregnant or breastfeeding since the safety of using Ovex tablets during these stages has not been established yet

  3. Kids under the age of 2 should also not use this medication to avoid any possible side effects

What is the difference between Ovex tablets, and other similar products such as Reeses Pinworm Medicine, and Combantrin Chocolate Squares?

These three medications are similar in that they’re all used to treat threadworms. However, Ovex tablets stand out more since they have proved their efficacy and safety compared to other similar treatments. So, Ovex tablets are more effective than these two products, as they contain a renowned ingredient-mebendazole, which helps them to treat threadworms effectively and faster. Also, Ovex tablets do not cause severe side effects when used correctly compared to other alternatives hence making them safer to use and more preferable.
