The discovery of Ivermectin in 1975 was awarded the 2015 Nobel Prize in Medicine. Numerous studies report low rates of adverse events, with the majority mild, transient, and largely attributed to the body’s inflammatory response to the death of parasites and include itching, rash, swollen lymph nodes, joint paints, fever and headache. Very few treatments have been demonstrated to reduce the burden of morbidity and mortality from COVID-19. Although corticosteroids have been proven to reduce mortality in severe disease, there has been little convincing evidence on interventions that may prevent disease, reduce hospitalizations, and reduce the numbers of people progressing to critical disease and death. Ivermectin is an anti-parasite medication. Ivermectin is used to treat infections in the body that are caused by certain parasites. Ivermectin is approved for use in humans to treat intestinal strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis.
Ivermectin has been found to have antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties, leading to an increasing list of therapeutic indications. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, both observational and randomized studies have evaluated Ivermectin as a treatment for, and as prophylaxis against, COVID-19 infection. Effects of Ivermectin for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 infection, concluding that ivermectin “demonstrates a strong signal of therapeutic efficacy” against COVID-19.9 Another recent review found that ivermectin reduced deaths by 75%. Because Ivermectin has 5 different mechanisms of action against COVID-19 variants, the medication is also effective with the different variants of the virus.
When taking Ivermectin please take the medication with or after your meal. Ivermectin is a fat-soluble drug and the absorption of Ivermectin is enhanced in the body’s tissues with a fatty meal. This medication comes in 3 mg – 6 mg and 12 mg. FDA-approved drugs, like Ivermectin, may be prescribed for an unapproved use “off-label” when the physician believes it to be medically appropriate for their patients. The FDA affords clinicians the freedom to prescribe and treat using medications that they deem to be in the best interest of the patient. The practice of prescribing drugs “off-label” is so common that 1 out of 5 prescriptions dispensed in the U.S. is for an off-label use. The reason why off-label prescriptions are issued so frequently because there might not be an approved drug to treat a specific disease or medical condition. Also, patients may have tried all approved treatments without seeing any benefits. Providers can access and prescribe investigational drugs or agents that are approved or licensed for other indications through various mechanisms, including Emergency Use Authorizations (EUAs), Emergency Investigational New Drug (EIND) applications, compassionate use or expanded access programs with drug manufacturers, and/or off-label use. The panel also stipulates that the treatment recommendations in their guidelines are not mandates; but rather that “the choice of what to do or not to do for an individual patient is ultimately decided by the patient and their provider.” Good medical practice and the best interests of the patient require that physicians use legally available drugs, biologics and devices according to their best knowledge and judgement. Doctors may prescribe what they wish as long as they believe themselves to be well-informed and basing their decision on sound medical evidence. It should be noted, however, that individual institutions may set their own standards for off-label prescriptions if they so choose.
