How effective are Stromectol tablets 3 mg from Japan for parasites (strongyloidiasis, scabies, ivermectin)?
Stromectol tablets contain ivermectin, an approximately 80:20 mixture of two avermectin B1 derivatives, called 22,23-dihydroavermectin B1a and B1b. It works by interfering with nerve and muscle function of helminths and insects. As the result, Stromectol tablets cause paralysis, death and extermination of the parasites.
Who should take Stromectol tablets 3 mg from Japan?
Stromectol tablets are approved in Japan for the treatment of intestinal strongyloidiasis and scabies. However, multiple studies also showed that ivermectin is effective for the treatment of:
- head lice,
- river blindness (onchocerciasis),
- lymphatic filariasis.
Furthermore, this medicine is relatively safe as it does not show any genotoxic activity and does not penetrate through the hematoencephalic barrier in mammals (A. L. Dourmishev, L. A. Dourmishev, R. A. Schwartz "Ivermectin: pharmacology and application in dermatology". International Journal of Dermatology. 2005, December, 44 (12): 981–8).
