· Ivermectin is used to treat infections in the body that are caused by certain parasites.
· Ivermectin is currently being investigated as a treatment for coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which is the virus that causes COVID-19. The trials so far have shown ivermectin reduces the number of cell-associated viral DNA by 99.8 % in 24 hours. Further studies are needed to determine the effectiveness of this medicine in humans with COVID-19.

Ivermectin is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved antiparasitic drug that is a medication used to recover many types of parasitic infections. Includes Head lice, Scabies, River blindness, Diarrhea, and worm infections.
Here’s the reason you’ve been hearing more about ivermectin lately: the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC).
The group – led by three physicians with a knack for making headlines – posted its own review and meta-analysis of the global ivermectin literature on its website.
In early December, these doctors held a press conference, and one testified at a Senate hearing on early treatments for COVID-19.
… Too good to be true? Not in the mind of FLCCC co-leader Paul Marik, MD, chief of pulmonary and critical care medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, who co-authored the review and meta-analysis based mainly on studies from outside the U.S…
… Group members, who are mostly critical care physicians, don’t see a need for more data and argue it would be unethical to give placebo to patients given the established safety of ivermectin. But that’s raising more than a few eyebrows among others in the field. …
… Marik is known in the field for developing the HAT protocol for sepsis, which also hasn’t been without controversy. It’s a combination of hydrocortisone, ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and thiamine. His group’s 2017 observational study of the protocol, published in CHEST, garnered excitement about the combination.
But that hasn’t been borne out in subsequent trials, including the ADRENAL study (which looked at steroids alone), the CITRIS-ALI study (which looked at vitamin C alone) and the VITAMINS trial, which randomized patients to the full protocol but was open-label. The VICTAS study has completed enrollment but hasn’t yet reported data. …
… “We need to do something in the meantime,” Marik said.
Much of the rest of medicine believes that “something” should be a randomized trial. …
That is medication for horses and cows, not humans. Humans who take it are dying. The only ones who should be taking it, if any really are, are those under a doctor’s supervision, which, at this point, is with humans being lab rats. This is not for the general public.
Do you think viruses are parasites?
If you do, then rethink that bad information.
Bacteria and viruses can live outside of the human body (such as on a countertop) sometimes for many hours or days. But parasites need a living host to survive . Bacteria and parasites can often be killed with antibiotics. But these medicines can’t kill viruses.
Ivermectin can be used by humans but not for viral infections.
Here’s What You Need to Know about Ivermectin
The FDA has not authorized or approved ivermectin for use in preventing or treating COVID-19 in humans or animals. Ivermectin is approved for human use to treat infections caused by some parasitic worms and head lice and skin conditions like rosacea.
Currently available data do not show ivermectin is effective against COVID-19. Clinical trials assessing ivermectin tablets for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in people are ongoing.
Taking large doses of ivermectin is dangerous. If your health care provider writes you an ivermectin prescription, fill it through a legitimate source such as a pharmacy, and take it exactly as prescribed.
Never use medications intended for animals on yourself or other people. Animal ivermectin products are very different from those approved for humans. Use of animal ivermectin for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in humans is dangerous.
What is Ivermectin and How is it Used?
Ivermectin tablets are approved by the FDA to treat people with intestinal strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis, two conditions caused by parasitic worms. In addition, some topical forms of ivermectin are approved to treat external parasites like head lice and for skin conditions such as rosacea.
Some forms of animal ivermectin are approved to prevent heartworm disease and treat certain internal and external parasites. It’s important to note that these products are different from the ones for people, and safe only when used in animals as prescribed.
Triolex69, if you recommend Ivermectin against Covid, you are placing people lives in danger. Do you want this on your conscience?
I am not a biochemist and neither are you. I do not advocate using Ivermectin to kill viruses. You do without any qualification to make such recommendation.
So who is on a high horse? You are a danger to the medical world, just as the people refusing to wear masks are a danger to others as well as themselves.
If you believe you know better than a scientist (doctor) who has spent 8 years of intense medicinal study to become qualified to practice medicine, then it is you who is on a high horse and when you fall off, you may take a bunch of people with you , like Trump did, when he became a walking spreader.
What is the most common way the coronavirus disease is spread?
Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
I don’t care who you are responding to. You have no standing to make any medical response about Ivermectin. If you are a vet, your license may be in jeopardy.
YOU ARE WRONG IN ADVOCATING IVERMECTIN AS A CURE FOR COVID.

Strawman. The claim was ivemection is not for humans Get off your high horse
You can’t even spell the drug’s name properly.
Learn your medicines, before you play at doctoring and placing people’s lives at risk.
As an important step in becoming a doctor, medical students must take the Hippocratic Oath . And one of the promises within that oath is “first, do no harm” (or “primum non nocere,” the Latin translation from the original Greek.)Oct 13, 2015
Blockquote The FDA has not approved ivermectin for use in treating or preventing COVID-19 infection in humans. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommend not to use ivermectin in patients with COVID-19 to reduce viral replication, except in clinical trials.
So please take your horse medication and give to someone who doesn’t care whether or not it is an approve medication or not.
