With the recent discontinuation of Vermox® or mebendazole, as the generic name is known, Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy is making this drug available as a compounded formulation. It is used to treat infestations by worms including pinworms, roundworms, tapeworms, hookworms, and whipworms. Mebendazole is considered an antihelmintic for treatment of nematode infestations.
Our Pediatric Population will benefit greatly from this drug and the parents should be content with knowing a remedy can be prepared according to their doctors prescription orders. Contact Pavilion’s knowledgeable pharmacists to discuss the best method of administration for your child.
An easy method to see if your child has worms is to take a piece of clear tape at night, while your child is sleeping, spread the buttocks, and place between, hold up to the light and visually see if you see any indication of worms. Of course your doctor or physician extender will make the positive diagnosis, but this is just a home check, if you notice excessive rectal irritation, itching, or your child complains this is a clue to a potential worm problem.
Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy provides both sterile and nonsterile custom formulations for adult, pediatric, and pets. We are your metro Atlanta resource for compounded medications.
