Thanks for your query.

Mebendazole (Mebex) do not have any adverse effects on the pregnancy.

Though the drug may cause mild pain and discomfort in the abdomen which is not seen in all.

The symptoms you mentioned are seen in pregnancy and other symptoms like dizziness, skin changes, breast tenderness, craving, constipation, mood swings etc are typically seen in pregnancy.

I suggest you to go for a Home pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy in you.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.
