Ovex Tablets are specifically for the treatment of threadworm.
This is a single tablet pack, for the treatment of 1 person only.
A single dose of Ovex will kill threadworms, however, it may not destroy their eggs, which can cause re-infection and also infect other people.
It is therefore strongly recommended that all members of the family (except pregnant and breast feeding women and children under two) are treated at the same time and that precautions are taken to prevent re-infection.
Adults and children over 2 years: 1 tablet chewed or swallowed whole. Not to be given under 2 years.
You should make sure that you carefully read all product packaging and labels prior to use
Orange flavoured tablet containing: Mebendazole 1mg. Ovex also contains microcrystalline cellulose, sodium starch glycolate, sodium saccharin, sodium lauryl sulphate, orange flavour and orange yellowS (El 1).
Side effects are rare but should you experience any side effects report to your doctor or pharmacist.
