Brand : Stromectol Generic
Composition : Ivermectin (eye-ver-MEK-tin)
Stromectol[Generic Ivermectin] belongs to a class of semi-synthetic anthelmintic medication, derived from avermectin which is a broad-ranging anti-parasitic agent, and is used in the treatment of infections caused by most worms.
Compounds of this anti-parasitic agent bind themselves to glutamate-gated chloride ion channels, increasing the permeability of the cell membrane to chloride ions with hyperpolarizaiton of the nerve/muscle cell, which results in paralyzing and ultimately killing the parasites that attack the human body.
Stromectol (Ivermectin) is used to treat diseases such as Onchorcerciasis, Strongyloidiasis, Ascariasis, Trichuriasis and Enterobiasis. It is also used for getting rid of most mites, and some lice.
The greatest benefit of treatment with Ivermectin lies in the fact that it does not readily cross the blood-brain barrier in human beings.

Onchocerciasis [“River Blindness”], is caused by the bite of infected blackflies [a filarial nematode], that abound by rapidly flowing rivers. When these worms move around in the body and die, they can cause skin rashes, intense itching, disfigurative skin diseases, depigmentation, and eye lesions that can cause inflammation or bleeding and lead to blindness. Stromectol kills the developing worms, but for the adult worms additional doses after 3, 6, or 12 months may be required.
Strongyloidiasis affects the intestines when filariform larvae penetrate the skin. When people come into contact with soil which has been contaminated with human feces [or other waste matter], the parasites enter the body, traveling through the bloodstream to the small bowels where they mature and multiply. If the parasites spread to the heart, urinary tract, or endocrine organs, they can even cause meningitis or polymicrobial bacteremia, and prove to be fatal. This disease occurs in all age groups, but children are more prone to get it. Stromectol [Ivermectin] kills the worms in the intestines.
In places where human feces is used as fertilizer, an infection – Ascariasis, is caused in people [particularly children] who consume food or liquids contaminated by the eggs of the parasitic roundworm, Ascaris lumbricoides. The movement of the roundworm eggs in the lungs, can lead to eosinophilic pneumonia – which is uncommon.
Trichuriasis, is a whipworm infection of the large intestines, caused by a roundworm, Trichocephalus trichiura. It is a common infection in children, who are prone to getting it when they swallow soil which has been contaminated with whipworm eggs or feces.
Enterobiasis is caused by swallowing pinworms by children –the commonest worm infection in USA. The eggs of the pinworm which are present in food or other contaminated items, mature in the colon, and move to the child’s anal area, especially at night, causing intense itching. When the child scratches, the eggs can get under the child’s fingernails and be transferred to anything he/she touches, as well as other members of the family.
Ivermectin is used to treat all these ailments – Ascariasis, Trichuriasis and Enterobiasis.
Consult the doctor before taking stromectol for any worm-related infection. Stromectol has to be taken with water on an empty stomach.
For the treatment of Onchocerciasis a single dose of about 150mcg of Ivermectin/kg of body weight is given. For Strongyloidiasis, a dose of 200mcg of Ivermectin/body weight is administered.

Stromectol [Ivermectin] is usually a one-time dose.
Before starting stromectol medicine, inform your doctor if you have a brain condition that could alter the blood-brain barrier [such as swelling of the brain – meningitis] or epilepsy.
Inform your doctor if you have recently lived in/traveled to west or central Africa, for if you have been exposed to certain parasites there such as Loa-loa or trypanosomiasis, it could interfere with Ivermectin treatment [though effect is supposed to be rare, but if it occurs it can have a fatal effect on the brain].
Inform your doctor about your complete medical history, the ailments you have suffered from, any allergies you have and all the drugs – prescription and OTC [including herbal products] – you are taking.
Ivermectin is capable of influencing certain lab results, so whenever you go for any test, the doctor and laboratory personnel should be informed that you are taking Ivermectin.
Limit your intake of alcohol and alcoholic beverages.
The drug may cause dizziness or drowsiness, so stay very alert when driving, handling heavy machinery, or performing hazardous tasks.
Keep all your lab appointments: Stromectol might cause changes in the body metabolism, or the doctor may want to keep a tab on your progress, so go for all blood/stool tests as advised.
Pregnant women, or those planning to conceive, or nursing mothers, must consult their gynaecologist before taking this medicine.
If a patient presents severe symptoms of Onchocerciasis, the doctor might prescribe a corticosteroid [something like cortisone] to help in reducing the inflammation caused by the worms, which has to be taken alongwith Stromectol.
In HIV patients, repeated courses may be required to get rid of the problem.
Stromectol should not be taken without a doctor’s advice. If repeated doses are required, take them.
If a child in your family has been infected, consult a pediatrician. Do not treat anyone on your own.
