Vermox is ab abtugeknubtuc, used to cure the effect of worms like whipworm, pinworm, roundworm, and hookworm. It prevents the worms from multiplying within the body.
How to consume?
Follow the instructions of the doctor. Vermox tablets can be consumed with water, or you can even crush, chew or mix it with food to consume. Never discontinue the dosage even if the symptoms have disappeared, or until the doctor advises. It takes around three days for the worm to
be eliminated from your body. However, the duration may vary depending on the worm and its susceptibility to Vermox. It may be up to 3 days after treatment before the worm is removed
from your stomach and intestines. The amount of time it takes to cure the infection depends on how susceptible the worm is to Vermox, and how smooth your digestive system is. In case the infection is not completely cured after three weeks of medication, you may need to
resort to alternative medicines as well. Fasting, using laxatives, or purging does not cure this infection. In case one person of the family is infected, then we recommend the other family members also to undertake treatment as a precautionary measure. This is because Pinworm is contagious and may spread to people close to the patient.
In order to avoid reinfection or relapse, one needs to ensure that the toilets are disinfected regularly. Clothes, towels, and nightwear needs to be changed every day.
In case you skip a dose of Vermox, you need to consume it immediately. However, it is close to the time of your next dose; then you should skip it and go ahead with your regular dose. Never take a
double dose, as it may trigger side effects. For further queries regarding the dosage and duration of medication, speak to your doctor.
Never consume an overdose of Vermox. Never consume it for more than the duration prescribed by your doctor.
Store Vermox at room temperature, between 59 and 86 degrees F, away from the reach of children and pets. Never keep it in the bathroom. Avoid storing in places which are too hot or moist.
