Stromectol general information

What is Stromectol used for?

Stromectol tablets 3mg are used to treat parasitic infections caused by parasitic worms and ectoparasites.  Strongyloidiasis is an infection caused by the nematode Strongyloides stercoralis an intestinal parasite belonging to the hookwork group of roundworms.  Infection occurs by direct contact with contaminated soil and the larval worms enter the blood stream, migrate to the lungs and are then swallowed.  Once in the host intestine, the larvae mature into adults and produce eggs, which hatch and the next generation of larvae are excreted in the faeces or migrate to other parts of the body and thereby reinfect the same host.  Symptoms of strongyloidiasis include a rash at the site of larval penetration, usually the feet, gastrointestinal symptoms (diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting); other symptoms include low-grade fever, coughing and wheezing, due to the migration of larvae through the lungs.  Severe infection can be more serious if the parasite spreads throughout the body.  Stromectol tablets 3mg are also used to treat lymphatic filariasis, also known as elephantiasis caused by the thread-like nematode worm Wuchereria bancrofti carried by mosquitos.  Transmission is by a bite from and infected mosquito when the larvae enter the blood stream and migrate to the lymph vessels.  They mature into adults, mate and produce and microfilariae, which circulate in the blood ready to infect when another mosquito bites, where they grow into adults and begin the life cycle again.  Symptoms of lymphatic filariasis include lymphoedema or obstruction of the lymphatic system causing swelling in the arms, legs or genitals, which can be painful and disfiguring. Stromectol tablets 3mg are also used to treat scabies, after prior treatment has failed.  Scabies is a contagious parasitic infection, caused by the parasitic mite Sarcoptes scabiei, which is transmitted by direct skin contact. The scabies mite burrows into the skin causing itching as it burrows, which can be intense and is often worse at night.  Within two to six weeks after infection the mite can cause an allergic reaction with symptoms including a rash, seen as small red bumps on the limbs and trunk, which are usually very itchy; also nodules in the groin or armpit.  Burrow lines can also be seen at the site of infection, usually between the fingers, on the skin of the hands, feet, wrist, elbows, buttocks and genitals.  If left untreated scabies infection can cause secondary complications like impetigo (infection and inflammation of superficial skin cells) and cellulitis (inflammation of the lower dermal or subcutaneous skin layers).  Stromectol tablets 3mg work through the same mechanism to kill the parasite causing these infections and thereby treat the infection to relieve symptoms and prevent spread of infection. 

How does Stromectol work?

Stromectol tablets 3mg contains ivermectin, an anthelmintic derived from the avermectins (isolated from fermentation of Streptomyces avermitilis) that is used to treat a variety of parasitic diseases.  Ivermectin in Stromectol tablets 3mg works by interacting directly and specifically with the nervous system of the parasite but does not affect mammals.  Ivermectin binds with high affinity to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glutamate (GluCl) regulated chloride channels in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells, causing paralysis and death of the parasite.  Stromectol tablets 3mg are effective in interrupting the infectious cycle and helping to prevent spread of infection.

What does Stromectol contain?

Stromectol tablets contain the active ingredient ivermectin (3mg), an anthelmintic used to treat a variety of parasitic diseases.  They also contain microcrystalline cellulose, pregelatinised corn starch, butylated hydroxyanisole, citric acid anhydrous, magnesium stearate.
