    WHAT IS OVEX?

    Ovex is a branded medication used to treatment threadworm infection. It contains the active ingredient mebendazole. Threadworms (also known as pinworms) are tiny worm parasites which infect the gut.

    Ovex tablets are available in single packs or a family pack containing four tablets.

    How DO I TAKE OVEX?

    One tablet of Ovex should be to treat threadworm infection. All household members, including those without symptoms should also take one tablet at the same time.
