What is Stromectol (Ivermectin) prescribed for?

A roundworm infection, also sometimes known as ascariasis or ascaris, can be an easy infection to treat. Roundworms can infest the human gut and live, feed, and reproduce there. They do not often cause any symptoms in the beginning, but are more likely to start causing you problems in larger numbers.

Roundworms are parasites, and they use the human body to stay alive. You can get a roundworm infection if you swallow the microscopic ascaris eggs in contaminated food or water.

Roundworm is a parasitic illness, and once infected many of the symptoms are nausea, vomiting, irregular stools or diarrhea, intestinal blockage, which causes severe pain and vomiting.

This medication is used to treat certain parasitic roundworm infections. And curing a parasitic infection help stop improve your quality of life. Within people with a weakened immune system, curing roundworm infections can reduce the risk of developing a severe or life threatening infection.

Ivermectin belongs to a class of drugs known as antihelmintics. It works by paralyzing and killing parasites.

This medication is taken by mouth with a full glass of water, and on an empty stomach at least 1 hour before a meal. It is usually taken  as a single dose or a series of doses, or as directed to you by your doctor.
