Vermox (Mebendazole) is a used to treat infections that are caused by worms such as whipworm, pinworm, roundworm and hookworm. This medication prevents newly hatched insect larvae from growing or multiplying in your body. It is also used to treat infections caused by more than one of these worms at the same time. Mebendazole belongs to the class of medications called anthelminthics. It works by preventing the worms from absorbing sugars which they need to survive. This kills the worm within a few days. Mebendazole kills adult worms only; it does not kill the eggs.
