Take the tablets by mouth. Follow the directions on the prescription label. Vermox works best when taken with food, especially fatty foods such as whole milk, cheese, or ice cream. You can chew the tablets, swallow them whole or crush and mix with food (such as ice cream or pudding) which is an easy way to give the tablets to children. Do not take your medicine more often than directed. Finish the full course of medicine prescribed by your doctor even if you feel better. Space your doses evenly through the day and night and take at the same time each day. Parasite (worm) death can be slow. To remove all parasites (worms) from the intestines can take several days.
Contact your doctor regarding the use of this medicine in children as special care may be needed.
