Hi Parasite Warriors ~~
I used the following protocol, with good results, for a pinworm infection:
Mebendazole (Vermox) Protocol:
1 tab, 100mg, twice daily.* Chew or grind tabs. Take ea dose w/40g fatty meal. 7 days on, 7 days off to rest the liver. Repeat for 2 or more cycles, as needed, to cure infection.
*Note: For hyperinfection cases only, increase dosage to 2 tabs, 100mg, twice daily.
If taking 500mg tabs, split ea tab into 4 doses, 125mg ea.
Mebendazole is poorly absorbed in the gut, so you must chew tab very well.
You must consume 40g fat with each dose
Hi, I'm not a doctor but this is what worked for me.
Posting from ************ – 200 mg Vermox, 2 times per day worked for me – (after all the usual herbal, and prescription med dosages did not - they would diminish the number of pinworms for a day or so but never completely get rid of them until I used the higher dosage of Vermox as suggested below).
