What Are Ovex Suspension and Tablets?

Ovex is a licensed medication that can be used by children over two years of age and adults for the treatment of contagious worm infections of the gut such as threadworm.

How Does Ovex Work?

Threadworms are tiny parasitic worms that infect the colon or rectum of human beings. Threadworms spread when a person comes in contact with their eggs and swallows them. They can be spread when an uninfected person comes in contact with surfaces such as toys, clothes or food that was touched by an infected person. These worms affect a person’s digestive system, causing them to suffer symptoms such as weight loss, irritability, or itching around the anus. Ovex belongs to a class of drugs known as anthelmintic that work by preventing worms from absorbing the sugars that are vital for their survival, thus depleting the energy in the worms, causing them to eventually die. You should be able to notice the improvement after a few days of using Ovex when the worms begin to die.
