What Ovex Suspension is

Ovex Suspension is a treatment for threadworm, a contagious infection which can affect the whole family. If you’re suffering from threadworm and need a solution that will work for everyone in your household, Ovex can help. Ovex is available in packs of one tablet, a four tablet Family Pack, or this liquid suspension which provides 6 doses. One treatment is all you need to treat a threadworm infection and ease your symptoms within just a few days.

What threadworm is

Threadworm, or pinworm, is a type of infection that affects your digestive system. It happens when you come into contact with threadworm eggs and swallow them. The eggs will then hatch into tiny, thread-like worms your gut and begin to lay more eggs around your anus. When you have threadworm, some of the most common symptoms you’ll experience include:

  • White worms in your poo which look like strings of white thread
  • Itching around the anus or vagina, especially at night
  • Irritability
  • Waking up during the night
  • Weight loss
  • Wetting the bed
  • Irritation around the anus

How will the mebendazole in Ovex Suspension treat my threadworm?

Mebendazole is the active ingredient in all Ovex threadworm treatments, including Ovex Suspension. It’s a type of medication called an ‘anthelmintic’, which means it treats threadworm by depriving the worms in your system of the sugars they need to survive. Once you’ve taken a dose of mebendazole, you should see an improvement in your symptoms within just a few days, as the worms begin to die out.

Can I use this product if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

You should not take Ovex treatments if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you think you have a threadworm infection at this time, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
