Ivermectin 12mg was discovered in the late 1970s and is a prescribed medicine used to treat certain internal and external infections.
It is commonly used to treat intestinal strongyloidiasis (it is a type of worm that enters the body through skin lice in the intestines.) and onchocerciasis (river blindness), two parasitic worm-caused diseases.
The FDA has approved this medication (Food And Drug Administration). It kills the developing worms in strongy loidiasis and onchocerciasis. It has no effect on the developed worms.
This medication is safe when taken exactly as prescribed.
