Ovex Suspension Family Pack 30ml


Banana flavoured with Mebendazole. Specifically for the treatment of threadworm. This family pack provides six single 5ml doses and it is recommended that all members of the family are treated at the same time to prevent re-infection.


Ovex suspension treats threadworm by containing the active ingredient mebendazole. Mebendazole belongs to a group of medicines called anthelmintics.

The active ingredient works by preventing the worms from absorbing glucose which they need to survive in your intestines.

Threadworm is sometimes called pinworm and can affect both adults and children. One of the main symptoms of threadworms is an itchy bottom (around the anus or the vagina) at night. Young children can seem irritated and wake up more often during the night.

It is strongly recommended that all members of the family are treated with Ovex Suspension Banana at the same time and that precautions are taken to prevent re-infection.


  • Take one 5ml dose only. The suspension can be dispensed in the measuring cup provided.
  • Not recommended for children under 2 years.


Ovex Suspension Banana Family Pack should not be given to children younger than two years of age, unless recommended by your doctor. Always tell your pharmacist if you are taking any other medicine because some drugs should not be taken together. If you are taking a cimetidine(a medicine used to treat stomach acidity), then you should check with your doctor before taking this medicine. If you have been told by your doctor that you have an intolerance to some sugars, you should also check with your doctor before taking Ovex Suspension Banana.


Ovex Suspension Banana Family Pack contains 6 x 5ml treatments of 100mg mebendazole for the treatment of threadworms.
