Stromectol Usage

Patients having parasitic infections like loiasis apart from nematode parasites, Strongyloides stercoralis and Onchocerca volvulus are generally not prescribed for Stromectol. African trypanosomiasis and similar parasites are found in West and Central Africa. The presence of these parasites has very severe (even fatal) side effects with Ivermectin. A thorough body checkup should be carried out to detect the presence of these parasites.

Drugs could limit overall reaction time and affect decision-making ability. Tasks requiring complex decision-making or very alert reactions should be avoided.

If used for the treatment of strongyloidiasis, stool infection should be carried out regularly to check the effect of the treatment. Users should not miss any physician or lab appointments. When Ivermectin is used for treating onchocerciasis, users may need retreatment as adult Onchocerca parasites can survive Stromectol.

Nursing mothers and pregnant users should use Stromectol under strict Physician supervision. Children should use Stromectol only after Physician use.
