The US CDC just warned of a 5X increase in ivermectin poisoning cases from a 24X surge in ivermectin prescriptions!

Here is what you need to know about why ivermectin is causing so many poisoning cases!


CDC : 24X Increase In Ivermectin Prescriptions!

On 26 August 2021, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a critical warning.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic started, there was only an average of 3,600 ivermectin prescriptions per week.

It has now reached 88,000 ivermectin prescriptions in the week ending 13 August 2021 – 24X higher than the pre-pandemic baseline.

This does NOT even include the use of ivermectin-based veterinary products.

CDC : 5X Increase In Ivermectin Poisoning Cases!

Coupled with the massive increase in ivermectin use from prescriptions and veterinary products, is a huge 5X increase in ivermectin poisoning cases.

According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC), there was :

  • a 3X increase in the number of ivermectin poisoning cases in January 2021, and
  • a 5X increase in the number of ivermectin poisoning cases in July 2021.

These reports of ivermectin poisoning were associated with adverse effects and visits to emergency departments or hospitals. The CDC shared two examples :

  • An adult drank an injectable ivermectin formulation intended for use in cattle in an attempt to prevent COVID-19 infection. This patient presented to a hospital with confusion, drowsiness,  visual hallucinations, tachypnea, and tremors. The patient recovered after being hospitalized for nine days.
  • An adult patient presented with altered mental status after taking ivermectin tablets of unknown strength purchased on the internet. The patient reportedly took five tablets a day for five days to treat COVID-19. The patient was disoriented and had difficulty answering questions and following commands. Symptoms improved with discontinuation of ivermectin after hospital admission.

CDC : DO NOT Take Ivermectin For COVID-19!

The CDC wants everyone to understand that ivermectin currently has NOT been proven to prevent to treat COVID-19.

They stress that ivermectin that is formulated for skin or veterinary use, must not be consumed.

In addition, people taking ivermectin should watch out for signs of poisoning, and immediately seek medical attention :

  • gastrointestinal effects : nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhoea
  • neurological effects : tremors, seizures, hallucinations, confusion, loss of coordination and balance, decreased alertness, and coma
  • headache, blurred vision, dizziness, fast heart rate, low blood pressure

Instead of taking ivermectin for COVID-19, they are asking that people get vaccinated against COVID-19, because it is a proven and effective way to prevent COVID-19, including the Delta variant.
