Don’t use ivermectin for COVID-19, Health Canada warns as poison control calls increase​


Health Canada is warning Canadians against using ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID-19, saying that calls to poison control centres about the drug have increased over the summer.

Ivermectin, an antiparasitic medication, is authorized by Health Canada to treat worm infections, not viruses like the one that causes COVID-19.

“There is no evidence that ivermectin works to prevent or treat COVID-19, and it is not authorized for this use,” Health Canada wrote in a press release.

Recently, some veterinary medicine facilities have reported that people were also taking a formulation of the drug intended for livestock.

If you are taking ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19, you should stop immediately and safely discard any remaining medication by returning it to the vendor or following municipal hazardous waste guidelines, Health Canada wrote. If you are experiencing side effects after having taken it for that purpose, you should call poison control.

Taking drugs without being monitored by a medical professional puts people at risk of harmful side effects, the department wrote, especially when it comes to veterinary products.

“Canadians should never consume health products intended for animals because of potential serious health risks, including seizures, coma and even death.”

Health Canada was also made aware that ivermectin was being marketed in Canada to treat and prevent COVID-19.

“It is illegal in Canada to sell or advertise a drug in a false, misleading or deceptive manner,” it wrote in a press release.

The department said it contacted the advertisers and directed them to remove the advertisements

Health Canada previously warned against using the drug for COVID-19 in August.

In September, B.C.’s Drug and Poison Information Centre told Global News it has had nine cases related to people taking veterinary-grade ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19 in the last six months, when it had received zero calls about the drug over the last two years. None of these calls ended in a serious adverse outcome, the agency said.

“Ivermectin toxicity can lead to abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, dizziness, low blood pressure, seizures, coma, respiratory failure, and death,” the agency wrote in a statement.

Alberta Health Services has also issued warnings about the drug.

Dr. Michael Chatenay, a general and breast cancer surgeon in Edmonton, previously told Global News that his team has had patients asking about the drug, which he calls an “unproven therapy” for COVID-19.

“There may be some studies out there that show a benefit, but those studies are flawed,” he said. “If you really look at this carefully, there really is no evidence that this provides benefit. And there’s actually quite a bit of evidence that it may, in fact, harm you, especially if you’re taking a veterinary supply that people are seeking (from) veterinary supply stores. So until there is evidence that this works, we can’t in good conscience prescribe it.”

根据指引,这药的治疗dose是马的dose的20倍,所以说吃伊维菌的人都是真的勇士。赞。
这个就跟一开始传的中药连花清瘟胶,体外实验有杀灭病毒作用,但是在体内要达到治病效果,浓度必须先杀死人

驱虫药不能治新冠!许多人向阿尔伯塔省各饲料店求购伊维菌素​

开店的人巴不得生意好。但是最近一段时间,阿尔伯塔省的一些饲料店主却因许多人求购驱虫药伊维菌素而不胜其扰。因为这些人买药不是为了给牲畜驱虫,而是听信了这种药可以治疗新冠肺炎的说法,准备买回去自己吃的。

伊维菌素也叫双氢除虫菌素,可用于人和牲畜。饲料店里出售的是给马和其他牲畜驱除肠道寄生虫用的。卡尔加里城郊的饲料店老板奥尔森(Lance Olson)说,他店里的药根本不是给人吃的。但是听信传言的人在网上查伊维菌素,登陆他家店的网站的人暴增。许多人打电话来买药。还有些人跑到店里来,他只好把货架上的伊维菌素都收起来了。

一些打电话到阿尔伯塔省饲料店的买药者来自外省。另一个店主说,许多网上订购来自BC省温哥华市。

人用伊维菌素因其安全、有效和廉价被世界卫生组织列为基本药物。但新冠病毒并不是一种寄生虫。目前还没有研究证明伊维菌素对新冠肺炎有效。此前埃及本哈大学的埃尔加扎等人发表的相关研究报告因涉嫌数据造假和抄袭被撤回。但是这并不妨碍一些相信阴谋论的自媒体和政界人士宣传伊维菌素。

还有人通过亚马逊等电商成功购得伊维菌素,或者要求医生开药。在发生多起服用伊维菌素致病的事件后,美国疾控中心向公众发出警告。这种驱虫药可以导致腹泻、呕吐、痉挛甚至死亡。
