What is Mebendazole?

Mebendazole, like albendazole and praziquantel, is an anthelmintic drug (that kills the worms in the GIT), interfering with the helminth’s reproduction by disrupting its glucose metabolism and killing it. Some of the most common brands of Mebendazole are Vermox and Emverm.

What are the uses of Mebendazole?

Mebendazole is used for the treatment of infections like:

  • Pinworm (causing anal itching)
  • Whipworm (intestinal parasite)
  • Roundworm (leads to infections and diarrhea)
  • Hookworm (intestinal, blood-feeding parasites) 

How does it work?

Mebendazole works by inhibiting the ability of a parasite to absorb glucose necessary for its survival. After inhibiting the glucose absorption of a parasite, it makes it difficult for a parasite to grow, survive, and multiply, eventually leading to death. 

Your healthcare provider will determine the dose and frequency of mebendazole based on the type of parasites you are being treated for. 

What are the different dosage forms and strengths of Mebendazole?

Mebendazole comes in 3 different dosage forms. 

  • Oral tablets  (100mg-500mg/tab)
  • Chewable tablets (100mg/tab)
  • Oral suspension (100 mg per 5mL to 100 mg per 10 mL)

How to take it?

Your doctor will prescribe Mebendazole according to your medical condition and the specific parasites you are being treated for. It can be taken with or without food. Usually, 500mg is prescribed to be taken once a day.  

What are the side effects of Mebendazole?
