Oramectin Oral Solution
Composition: Each 1 ml contains: Ivermectin 0.8 mg.
Properties: Ivermectin is an endectocide with activity against a wide range of internal and external parasites. It enhances the release of gamma amino butyric acid (GABA) at presynaptic neurons. GABA acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter and blocks the post-synaptic stimulation of the adjacent neuron in nematodes or the muscle fiber in arthropods. By stimulating the release of GABA, ivermectin causes paralysis of the parasite and eventual death.
