Often the cause of frequent problems with the gastrointestinal tract are parasites. A person does not pay attention to stomach problems, believing that the cause lies in the wrong diet and you need to choose the appropriate diet. However, he does not hurry to the doctor. Hinder employment at work, at home, rest and much more, because of what the trip to a specialist is postponed and further, until the state of the intestine does not worsen at all.
And in the meantime, parasites destroy useful bacteria and lead the body to intoxication and reduce immunity products of its vital activity. But still you can get rid of them, and one of the most effective means for this is "Mebendazole", instructions for use, patients' testimonials about which indicate that he is really able to help.
In what form is produced "Mebendazole"
This drug is produced in the form of conventional or chewable tablets under the trade name "Mebendazole Amed." They are packaged in blisters of six pieces, which, in turn, are packed in a cardboard box. In each box there is one blister-standard with instructions for using the drug.
Indications for use
"Mebendazole", the patients' reviews are only positive. They note the effectiveness of the drug against all known types of parasites.
Indications, which require the use of this drug, demonstrate its capabilities:
- Enterobiasis - the presence of pinworms in the body;
- Ascaridosis - the presence of ascarids (roundworms);
- Trichocephalus - the presence of other species of roundworms - withers;
- Strongyloidiasis - the presence of parasites of the strongyloid species;
- Echinococcosis - with the detection of tapeworms.
Experts on the preparation "Mebendazol" indicate that when ingested in the stomach and intestines, it creates an obstacle to the formation of tubulin and other substances that create favorable environments for the development of parasites. The drug practically does not enter the blood and is eliminated from the body in a natural way.
With a high level of parasite concentration in the body at the beginning of the medication, the following phenomena can occur:
- abdominal pain;
- Nausea with or without vomiting;
- Headaches are possible.
Rarely, when taking increased doses, there may be a decrease in the neutrophil count in the blood.
Do not use the drug:
- Children up to two years;
- Pregnant and lactating mothers;
- With Crohn's disease;
- With ulcerative colitis;
- With renal failure.
Schemes of application
First of all, it should be borne in mind that the recommendations for taking the drug vary. It depends on the type of parasites, the age of the patient and the length of the course of treatment. But in any cases, "Mebendazol", the feedback we offer you, can save a person from parasites.
Next, exemplary treatment regimens will be presented. However, only a physician should select a regimen for a specific patient. He is called upon to examine the materials submitted for analysis and, based on the results of studies, to prescribe a certain dose of the drug, the frequency of its administration and, of course, the duration of the course of treatment.
So, in the presence of such parasites as pinworms, "Mebendazol" is applied once and, as a rule, operates without fail. The difference is in dosages only. Adults - 100 mg, for children - 25-50 mg.
In the presence of parasites more serious (ascarids, vagal heads) should be taken the same 100 mg, but already twice a day. In addition, the duration of treatment varies, which is three days. The same treatment order for trichocephalosis, ankylostomiasis. With STRONGILLIOIDISE and TENEOSE, the treatment regimen does not change, in addition to the dosage, 200 mg for adults and 100 mg for children.
Echinococcus is considered the most dangerous parasite. From this species the manufacturer recommends the highest dosage in comparison with the previous ones - 500 mg of the drug twice a day for the first three days. The next three days apply the same amount, but three times a day.
If a person lives in such an environment, when there is a possibility that infection with parasites can occur repeatedly, it is necessary to repeat the course of treatment for prevention after two to four weeks.
We will make a reservation that all the family should follow the parasites with strict adherence to the dosage and the frequency of taking the drug for each family member. And, of course, you must also consider the length of the course of treatment.
As experts say on the "Mebendazol", tablets are best swallowed whole (it's not about the chewing form of the drug), you can add them to your food. After that, be sure to drink plenty of water.
Duration of treatment and the order of dosage should be set by the doctor on the basis of the studies. With the repetition of symptoms, indicating the presence of helminths, another treatment course is being conducted.
In the case of an overdose of Mebendazole, the following can be observed:
- stomach ache.
A severe overdose is characterized by a violation of liver function, the development of hepatitis and a decrease in neutrophils. Since there is no antidote against Mebendazole to date, it is recommended to cancel the drug and take the necessary measures to remove it from the body - gastric lavage, activated charcoal, symptomatic treatment.
The analogue of the described means is "Farmland". It also differs considerable efficiency. Like "Mebendazol", "Farmland", whose reviews are noted for its quick help, is in great demand.
Interaction with other drugs
According to the researchers, it is not necessary to take additional medications during the course of treatment, as well as adhere to certain diets. But at its reception it is forbidden the use of alcohol and application of ethanol-containing preparations. The use of alcoholic beverages is allowed only a day after the completion of the course of treatment.
The drug "Cimetidine" slows down the absorption and excretion of "Mebendazole", causing the accumulation of its substances in the body. Preparations "Carbamazepine" and "Phenytoin" reduce the amount of "Mebendazole", especially when using the above drugs in the complex.
In patients with diabetes mellitus, the use of this drug is characterized by a decrease in the need for insulin. Although this is a positive thing, but still need to monitor the level of sugar in the blood.
In the first place - to be removed as far as possible from children to an inaccessible place, preferably with a temperature of 15 to 25 ° C. Shelf life of the drug is four years. The same rule applies to chewing tablets, but the recommended temperature for them is 8 to 25 ° C, and the shelf life is two years.
A few words about pinworms
Pinworms are worms that occur quite often both in children and in adults who ignore hygiene. Fortunately, today these parasites are thoroughly studied and perfectly treatable, so if you find them, do not worry, but do not need to let it go. First of all, consult a doctor who will prescribe the appropriate treatment.
Pinworms are the causative agents of enterobiasis. A characteristic symptom of their presence in the body is itching in the anus, aggravated in the evening or at night. In addition to this there are creaking teeth, fatigue, poor appetite. If these signs are found, you should consult a doctor who will prescribe the necessary tests and treatment.
The analysis consists in taking biological material from the anus with a cotton swab or a special adhesive tape. Taken material is examined under a microscope and on its basis it is possible to conclude about the disease.
Pinworms are removed from the body, usually with a short course of treatment - a single use of the medication "Mebendazole" (patient feedback is fully confirmed). After taking the drug, you must again pass the test to exclude the presence of pinworms. However, if the doctor recommends, for prevention, you can repeat taking the drug after a couple of weeks.
With other types of parasites, as the instruction is available to the drug "Mebendazol" (patients' reviews also confirm it), a different course of treatment is prescribed. We wrote about all this above.
About high level of hygiene
Despite numerous positive responses about the drug "Mebendazole", one should not forget about the prevention of the appearance of parasites. First of all, keep the body clean. The main rules should be known to everyone:
- Antibacterial hand hygiene before meals and after the toilet with water and soap;
- Maintenance of cleanliness of nails (they should be cut regularly);
- Careful temperature processing of meat, fish and other food products when preparing food.
With the regular observance of these rules, the risk of infection with worms is minimal. Otherwise, a person risks acquiring more severe ailments, which then are difficult to get rid of. And if you get infected, it's important to start taking Mebendazol on time. The testimonies of parasitologists confirm its high efficiency and wide spectrum of action.
