An important message from Express Chemist

In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.

Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. We are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries as quickly as possible. Unfortunately it is currently taking a little longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow 2-3 working days for shipment.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus stay at home and self-isolate for 10 days.

Ovex Tablets 1

Product code: 0028266
  • Pharmacy Only Medicine
(incl VAT)
[quicklink Ovex] Single Pack - For the treatment of enterobius vermicularis ([quicklink threadworm]).
  • Ovex chewable tablets are orange flavoured and contain Mebendazole 100mg.
  • This Ovex pack provides treatment for 1 person.
  • Adults and children over 2 years old.
  • Orange flavoured.
Once you have taken [quicklink Ovex], the Mebendazole gets to work immediately and kills the worms. However, Ovex tablets may not destroy their eggs which can then cause re-infection.
  • If re-infection does occur, a second Ovex tablet can be taken 14 days after the first dose, therefore it may be prudent to purchase a second pack with your initial order.
It is therefore strongly recommended to treat the whole household at the same time. If you prefer, there is an Ovex Family Pack available which contains 4 tablets. It is also important to wash hands before eating and after every visit to the toilet, wash linens frequently and bathe daily, concentrating around the anus. This will ensure eggs are removed and not spread.

Adults and children over 2 years: 1 Ovex tablet chewed or swallowed whole.
Crush the Ovex tablet before giving to young children.
Not to be given to infants under 2 years.

If you are pregnant or breast feeding, consult your doctor before taking Ovex.
If re-infection does occur, a second Ovex tablet can be taken 14 days after the first dose.
