Composition and release form of the drug
"Ivermek" is a pharmaceutical antiparasitic medicine that is used to treat goats and other domestic animals. The drug is dispensed without a doctor's prescription. The main component of the drug is ivermectin, the auxiliary component is vitamin E. After application, the active substance provides a long-term parasiticidal effect, and it is excreted from the goat's body mainly with urine and milk.
Ivermectin was obtained by fermentation of the fungus Streptomyces avermitilis. It acts at the cellular level (enhances the production of an inhibitory neurotransmitter) and leads to paralysis and death of parasites living in the gastrointestinal tract, nasopharynx, lungs, and skin. It is advisable to use this toxic substance in the doses recommended in the instructions.
