Ivermectin is an effective medication used for the treatment of a variety of parasitic diseases and is distributed under various brand names. It can treat mild to severe parasitic worms including most of the severe ones, hookworms, and whip worms. It is a prescription-based drug and only a few authentic online sites sell them under reliable and standard laboratory processes. The cream or lotion of Ivermectin is distributed freely and may not need a written prescription yet all other forms need a prescription from a medical practitioner as it can cause severe side effects on patients. It is particularly effective for people suffering from river blindness and also against a wide range of RNA and DNA viruses. If you haven’t heard of river blindness then it is a skin disease that is transmitted by the bite of black flies usually seen in tropical regions of the world. The transmission happens when the parasitic filarial worm enters the human body. The parasites breed fast in the fast-flowing rivers of the region and it is mainly seen among tourists who have visited such areas. The larvae of the parasite easily make their way into the human eye and cause blindness.
Ivermectin can also be used for other treatments like yellow fever, dengue, Zika, etc, and it is your doctor who can prescribe the medication after going through your past and present medical conditions. You cannot self-medicate Ivermectin as its side effects are pretty severe.
Dosage of Ivermectin Drug
It is your doctor who will recommend the dosage if you are suffering from one or more parasitic infections. Generally, the medication varies as per the individual’s body immunity and according to their age. Ivermectin is taken according to the advice of your doctor or as per the label printed on the package. It should be taken on an empty stomach at least one or two hours before a meal. You must also drink a full glass of water after taking the medication.
In case you are suffering from some particular disease and have weakened immunity or if you are under medication for other symptoms, your doctor may ask you to take a larger dose. It is because parasites tend to multiply faster when the human body is weakened. You may also need to take the Ivermectin parasite-killing drug for several months or a year if your doctor thinks so.

For some people, the treatment may stretch for 3 months while for others it may stretch up to 6 months or a year.
