After several weeks riding the "lice merry-go-round", using Rid and Nix, nitpicking, vacuuming, bagging and washing everything and everyone in the house, I finally heard about Rx Ovide. It is a miracle drug!! Although the smell is atrocious (I think the lice commit suicide at first whiff), I will gladly have all my kids smell like Pine-Sol than to suffer head lice infestation again.

My 7 year old got lice for the first time in Feb. 2012. We used an OTC kit and it worked no follow up was needed, but being hyper vigilant 7 days later I reapplied.

Comment:
We have had head lice for over six months. OTC items didn't work. A dermatologist prescribe Ovide. The first time we used the medication it did kill some but not all of the lice. The second time it killed none. Since then we have tried Ovide twice, and our results have been futile. Is there any prescription medicine that is effective in killing these annoyning bugs?

This medicine works wonders for lice! I have used several different kids of OTC lice products to no avail. I have 4 kids who always seem to bring home lice a few times a year. We had it 1 time almost 2 months. Finally the doctor gave us ovide and I was amazed it work so well, it's been 2 years now and no lice here.
