Stromectol (or the second name of it — Ivermectin) is a medicinal agent for curing such parasitic disease of humans as myiasis and helminthiasis of different etiologies: onchocerciasis, strongyloidiasis, ascariasis and others. Stromectol is also often used for curing scabies, especially its Norwegian form, head lice of humans. It’s also widely used in veterinary medicine for curing diseases of cattle, horses, pigs and sheeps. 

In 2015 for the discovery of stromectol Irish scientist William Campbell and japanese scientist Satoshi Omura got the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. They managed to find not just a new drug for curing parasitic diseases but the whole series of medicinal agents, based on avermectins generated as fermentation products by a soil actinomycete Streptomyces avermitilis. This discovery helped to reduce many times the morbidity of onchocerciasis (river blindness) and elephantiasis that made hundreds of thousands of people suffer all around the world!

How does stromectol work? 

Stromectol has a strong antiparasitic effect on larvas and mature individuals of nematodes of the gastrointestinal tract and lungs, also on larvas of skin, oropharyngeal and gastric botflies and others. Ivermectin significantly increases the production of gamma-aminobutyric acid neurotransmitter that causes a disruption of the transmission of nerve impulses, paralysis and death of parasites. Stromectol also causes a weakening of the throat muscles of parasites preventing its nourishment and it also causes a disruption of embryogenesis of helminths due to  intrauterine damages.

How to use stromectol?

For the treatment of people stromectol should be prescribed to take orally, meanwhile in veterinary stromectol is used mostly parenterally avoiding the gastrointestinal tract. Ordering stromectol in our pharmacy, be sure that you take the right form of it. 

After taking the drug, active substance Ivermectin rapidly soaks into the blood reaching a maximum concentration in plasma in 4 hours. Depending on the prescription of the attending physician the medicine should be taken once or twice with a 7-14 days break. The drug is excreted from the body in faeces mostly and its half-life goes about 28 hours. 

What contraindications stromectol has?

Since the active substance Ivermectin increases gamma-aminobutyric acid activity a patient should avoid using stromectol at the same time with drugs which have the similar effect such as barbiturates, benzodiazepines and valproic acid. Ivermectin should not be used by people with the disruption of the blood-brain barrier permeability, which are often encountered during meningitis and sleeping sickness. It also shouldn’t be taken during pregnancy.
