Mebendazole - Overview
Mebendazole is a medication sometimes prescribed to patients who are thought to have a gastrointestinal infection consisting of worms (e.g. pinworms) that are presumed or proven to be susceptible to treatment with mebendazole. People who might need a mebendazole medication prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe mebendazole, including mebendazole 100 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.
Mebendazole - Mechanism of Action
Mebendazole, sold under the brand names Emverm and Vermox, belongs to a class of medications known as anthelmintic drugs - similar to albendazole and praziquantel. Mebendazole is typically prescribed for the treatment of certain types of gastrointestinal infections and, like ivermectin, parasitic infections. Specifically, mebendazole has been found to have efficacy against infections caused by certain types of hookworms, roundworms, pinworms and whipworms. Mebendazole is thought to have a mechanism of action that involves disrupting the formation of tubulin in the cells of the helminth. Via this mechanism of action, mebendazole disrupts glucose metabolism, ultimately leading to interference in reproduction of the helminth. Unfortunately, resistance can occur to mebendazole prescription tablets. Mebendazole is also being investigated for potential uses in cancer treatment.
Mebendazole - Price and Dose
Branded mebendazole is an expensive medication in the United States, often costing hundreds of dollars per mebendazole 100 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States for people paying out of pocket. Some insurance plans may help cover costs associated with a mebendazole medication prescription and mebendazole coupons may be available from various sources. The prescribing instructions for mebendazole depend on the condition being treated, the health needs of the patient and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider but often range from mebendazole 100 mg one time to mebendazole 100 mg twice per day for three days. Given this, mebendazole is typically available in the form of mebendazole 100 mg tablets. When taken orally, mebendazole can generally be combined with food or crushed prior to taking but consult the package insert for exact instructions. Mebendazole is also under investigation as a single dose treatment.
