Ivermectin has not been shown to be a safe or effective way to prevent or treat COVID-19. It is a livestock dewormer. Clinical effects of ivermectin overdose include gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Overdoses are associated with hypotension and neurologic effects such as decreased consciousness, confusion, hallucinations, seizures, coma, and death. Ivermectin may potentiate the effects of other drugs that cause central nervous system depression such as benzodiazepines and barbiturates.
If you are worried about COVID-19, please talk to your doctor.
