Ovex Tablet: Ovex tablets are designed to treat threadworm which can be a real burden for kids. If any member of your family has threadworms, you must purchase a family pack of Ovex to prevent re-infection. Please bear in mind that this is only a single dose so only take it if there are no other family members to worry about.

Pharmacist Tip

it is a common misconception that children can catch worms from pets. There is no need to treat animals at the same time as animals carry different worms that do not infect humans.

Threadworm is no laughing matter and if a member of your family has it, they must take Ovex immediately. Additionally, the rest of the family should also take an Ovex tablet to ensure that re-infection does not occur.

This is a single dose of the medication so you should consider a family pack. Each Ovex tablet contains Mebendazole which is an effective ingredient in the fight against threadworms.

Bear in mind that it will kill the threadworms but it may not kill the eggs which is why everyone in the family needs an Ovex tablet.

Addtional information:-

Eggs can be swallowed when they come in to conatct with the mouth and develop in to worms in the gut and lay eggs in the anus. The transfer of eggs to mouth completes the life cycle. Hand washing and hygiene regimes should be encouraged and hand to mouth contact discouraged.

Adults and children 2 years and over:

Chew or swallow 1 tablet.

You can repeat the dose after 14 days if required.

The active ingredients contained in this medicine is/are:


The medicine also contains the following inactive ingredients to make up the complete product:

Microcrystalline cellulose, sodium starch glycolate, sodium saccharin, sodium lauryl sulphate, orange flavour and orange yellow S (E110).

Not everyone will experience side effects when they take medication, however if you do they can include:

Diarrhoea, abdominal discomfort and flatulence.

If you are concerned about these effects, or if the product affects you in any other way, stop using it and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Reading the following warnings carefully will help to ensure you are selecting an appropriate product.

  • A single dose of Ovex tablets will kill threadworms but may not eradicate their eggs, which usually causes re-infection and also infection to other individuals. 
  • Treating all family members at the same time (except children under two years, expectant or breast feeding mothers) is strongly recommended in order to prevent re-infection. 
  • If a re-infection occurs, take a second dose after 2 weeks. 
  • Consult your doctor if symptoms do not improve. 
  • Keep out of reach and out sight of children. 

Please read all packaging and the Product Information Leaflet before taking any new medicine and inform your doctor of medicines you are taking or intend to take.
