Pharmacological properties

Pharmacokinetics

Mebendazole is poorly absorbed when administered orally.

In the recommended (average therapeutic) dose, the drug has low bioavailability due to a pronounced first pass metabolism and a very low solubility of the drug substance. 90% of the drug binds to plasma proteins. Bioavailability increases while taking the drug with fatty foods. It is excreted mainly unchanged in the feces.

Vermox is a synthetic broad-spectrum anthelmintic drug. The agent affects the formation of tubulin in helminth cells, which leads to disruption of glucose uptake and normal digestive function in the helminth to such an extent that autolytic processes are triggered
