    How to Use This Medication

    This medication is taken by mouth and can be taken with or without food. It may be chewed, swallowed whole, or crushed and mixed with food.

    Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.

    For treatment of pinworm infections, the medication is usually given as a single dose. If necessary, a second treatment may be given in a few weeks. For other types of common worm infections (e.g., roundworm, hookworm), take mebendazole by mouth for 3 days, usually twice a day in the morning and in the evening, or as directed by your doctor. If necessary, a second treatment may be given in a few weeks. For other types of infections, follow your doctor's directions. Your doctor may order you to take this medication more often than twice a day and for longer than 3 days.

    It is very important to continue taking this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not skip any doses. Continue to take this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection.

    Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
