Mebendazole is a highly effective anthelmintic. It acts on various types of helminths, but is most effective for enterobiosis and trichocephalosis. It can also be used for ascariasis, hookworm infection, teniidosis and mixed invasions.
The drug selectively affects the cytoplasmic microtubules of helminths, inhibits the absorption of glucose by helminths and inhibits the formation of ATP in their body.
The drug is poorly absorbed in the intestine and is almost completely excreted in the feces (only in small amounts with urine).
Assign mebendazole inside. Preliminary fasting, a special diet and the use of a laxative are not required.
With enterobiasis, adults and adolescents take once in a dose of 0.1 g (1 tablet), children 2-10 years old - 25-50 mg each. With repeated invasion, the treatment is repeated in the same doses after 2 and 4 weeks.
When infected with other helminths or with mixed invasions, 0.1 g is prescribed 2 times a day for 3 days. With tenyidosis and strongyloidosis, adults are given 0.1 g 2 to 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.
