Possible drug and/or health conditions interactions with Ivermectin. Link --- Please help with more info.
If a person was considering taking oral Ivermectin, what warning would a competent honest doctor give?

Just wondering.

Here is a start...

"“Is ivermectin safe and are there any contraindications for use?”
The discovery of Ivermectin in 1975 was awarded the 2015 Nobel Prize in Medicine given its global
impact in reducing onchocerciasis (river blindness), lymphatic filiariasis, and scabies in endemic areas of
central Africa, Latin America, India and Southeast Asia. It has since been included on the WHO’s “List of
Essential Medicines with now over 4 billion doses administered. 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. In a study which combined results from trials including over 50,000 patients, serious
events occurred in less than 1% and largely associated with administration in Loa Loa infected patients.
Further, according to the pharmaceutical reference standard Lexicomp, the only medications contraindicated for use with ivermectin are the concurrent administration of anti-tuberculosis and cholera
vaccines while the anticoagulant warfarin would require dose monitoring. Another special caution is
that immunosuppressed or organ transplant patients who are on calcineurin inhibitors such as tacrolimus or cyclosporine or the immunosuppressant sirolimus should have close monitoring of drug levels
when on ivermectin given that interactions exist which can affect these levels. A longer list of drug
interactions can be found on the database of [link to www.drugs.com (secure)] with nearly all
interactions leading to a possibility of either increased or decreased blood levels of ivermectin. Given
studies showing tolerance and lack of adverse effects in human subjects given even escalating, high
doses of ivermectin, toxicity is unlikely although a reduced efficacy due to decreased levels may be a
concern. Finally, ivermectin has been used safely in pregnant women, children, and infants."
