Description

Ivermectin is a prescription medication that belongs to the class of anthelmintics. It is used to treat and prevent various parasitic infections such as onchocerciasis (river blindness), intestinal strongyloidiasis (roundworm), scabies, head lice and lymphatic filariasis. It works by binding to the muscle and nerve cells of the parasites, causing their paralysis and death. This clears the infection from the body and prevents further transmission.

Uses and Benefits of Ivermectin

Ivermectin has been approved by the FDA and the WHO for human use since 1987. It has been widely used in many countries to control endemic parasitic diseases that affect millions of people, especially in tropical and subtropical regions. Some of the benefits of ivermectin are:
  • It is effective against a broad spectrum of parasites, including nematodes, arthropods and ectoparasites.
  • It is safe and well-tolerated by most patients, with few and mild side effects.
  • It is easy to administer, as it can be taken orally or applied topically.
  • It is affordable and accessible, as it is available in generic forms and donated by the manufacturer to some countries.
  • It has potential antiviral activity against some RNA and DNA viruses, such as dengue, Zika, yellow fever and others.

Ivermectin and COVID-19

Recently, there has been a lot of interest in ivermectin as a possible treatment or prevention for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Some studies have suggested that ivermectin may have antiviral effects against SARS-CoV-2 in laboratory settings or in animal models. However, these studies are not conclusive and do not provide enough evidence to support the use of ivermectin in humans for COVID-19. The FDA, the WHO and other health authorities have not approved ivermectin for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19 in humans. They recommend that ivermectin should only be used for its approved indications or in clinical trials under strict supervision. They also warn against the misuse or overdose of ivermectin products intended for animals, as they can cause serious harm to humans. Therefore, it is important to consult your doctor before taking ivermectin for any reason. Do not self-medicate or buy ivermectin from unverified sources. Follow the official guidelines and recommendations for COVID-19 prevention and treatment.

These side effects are usually mild and transient, and do not require medical attention. However, if they persist or worsen, you should contact your doctor immediately. Some rare but serious side effects of ivermectin are:
  • Allergic reactions such as hives, swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat, difficulty breathing or anaphylaxis.
  • Severe skin reactions such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome or toxic epidermal necrolysis.

If you experience any of these side effects, you should seek emergency medical help right away. Before taking ivermectin, you should tell your doctor if you have any allergies, medical conditions or other medications. Some of the precautions to take are:
