A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Vermox is a prescription anthelmintic medication used to treat intestinal worm infections for hookworms, roundworms, pinworms, and whipworms. The active ingredient in this medication – mebendazole – works to quickly kill the worms and the worm larvae and prevent the continuing of the infection and additional health risks that come with it. Vermox dosage can vary based on the patients age and the extent to which the infection has progressed, and it is important to take the medication exactly as directed and at the right frequency in order to eliminate the worms entirely.
Standard Vermox dosage is to take the medication twice a day in the morning and evening for 3 days. If needed a follow-up treatment will begin in a few weeks, and this determination will be made by your doctor. Always take medication exactly as indicated in your prescription.
Dosage may be lowered for children.
The active ingredient in Vermox is Mebendazole.
Let your doctor know if you have any history of anemia (low blood count), liver disease, or intestinal conditions like Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis before starting on Vermox 100mg.
Use medication only when pregnant if your doctor approves it.
Medication should be kept in a cool, dry place and out of reach of children.
Side effects from using Vermox are possible, and some users may experience stomach / abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, dizziness, or drowsiness. If Vermox side effects are seen, you may want to stop use and speak to your doctor again regarding intestinal worm killer medication alternatives.
