Mebendazole is a highly effective antihelminthic. It acts on various types of helminths, but is most effective for enterobiasis and trichocephalosis. It can also be used for ascariasis, hookworm, teniidoz and mixed invasions.
The drug selectively affects cytoplasmic helminth microtubules, inhibits the assimilation of glucose by worms and inhibits the formation of ATP in their bodies.
The drug is poorly absorbed in the intestines and is almost completely excreted in the feces (only in small quantities in the urine).
Assign mebendazole inside. Pre-starvation, special diets and the use of laxative is not required.
When enterobiasis, adults and adolescents take a single dose of 0.1 g (1 tablet), children 2-10 years old - 25-50 mg. When re-invasion treatment is repeated in the same doses after 2 and 4 weeks.
When infected with other worms or mixed invasions, 0.1 g is prescribed 2 times a day for 3 days. With teniosis and strongyloidosis adults give 0.1 g 2 - 3 times a day, children - 0.1 g 2 times a day for 3 days.
When using mebendazole, allergic reactions can occur.
The drug is contraindicated in pregnancy.
