Ovex Suspension

Ovex Suspension contains 6 single dose treatments for threadworm infections of the gut. Ovex Suspension is a banana flavoured liquid containing an ingredient called mebendazole, which belongs to a group of medicines called 'anthelmintics'.

Ovex Suspension is suitable for adults and children aged over 2 years. As threadworms can spread very easily, it is strongly recommended that all the family (except pregnant or breastfeeding women or children under 2 years) are treated at the same time and that suitable hygiene precautions are followed to prevent re-infection.

The most obvious sign of threadworms, sometimes known as pinworm, is intense itching in the anal area, especially at night, although this does not affect everyone. If your children frequently scratch their bottoms, suffer from disturbed sleep or become irritable, it is worth checking their motions and the anal area for tiny white threads. If one member of the family has threadworms, the rest of the family may already have picked up the infection, even if they do not have obvious symptoms. 

  • Adults and children aged 2 years and over:  Take one 5ml dose per family member, using the measuring cup provided.
  • Children under 2 years: Not recommended.
If symptoms do not disappear within a few days, speak to your doctor. If you are re-infected your pharmacist may recommend that a second tablet is taken after two weeks.
  • Active Ingredient: Mebendazole 100mg per 5ml.
  • Other Ingredients: Sucrose, Microcrystalline Cellulose and Carmellose Sodium, Methylcellulose, Methylparahydroxybenzoate (E218), Propylparahydroxybenzoate (E216), Sodium Laurilsulfate, Banana Flavour, Citric Acid Monohydrate and Purified Water.
 Do not use Ovex Suspension:
  • If you have ever had a bad reaction to any of the ingredients.
  • If it is for a child under 2 years.
  • If you are pregnant or think you are pregnant.
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using Ovex Suspension:
  • If you are taking any other medicines, including: metronidazole (a drug used to treat bacterial and protozoan infections) and cimetidine (a medicine used to treat excess stomach acidity).
