Iverheal 12 mg contain ivermectin 12mg as an active ingredient.

Iverheal 12 contains Ivermectin which belongs to the group of medicines called anthelmintics. It is used to treat various parasitic infections such as onchocerciasis, intestinal strongyloidiasis, filarial worm infestations (e.g. lymphatic filariasis or microfilaraemia), hookworm infestations, scabies, pediculosis (head lice) and helminthiasis (such as Ascariasis (roundworms), Trichuriasis and Enterobiasis.

Onchocerciasis (also known as river blindness) is a parasitic (worm) infection mainly affecting the skin, lymph nodes and eyes. It is characterized by skin rash, itching, bumps under the skin, enlarged glands in the neck, armpits and groin, painful eyes or blindness. Intestinal strongyloidiasis  is a parasitic infection mainly affecting the skin and the intestines. It is characterized by skin rash, itching, stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea. Lymphatic filariasis is a worm infection that affects the lymph nodes and lymph vessels, while microfilaraemia is a filarial infection affecting the blood.

Scabies is a communicable skin infection that can spread from person to person via direct skin contact, including sexual contact and contact via exposure to the clothing or furnishings used by the infected person. It is characterized by intense skin itching (mainly at night) with irritating blisters or lumps on the skin mainly affecting the regions between the fingers, underarms, breasts, penis, buttocks, scalp, palms and soles.

Iverheal 6mg cannot be used prophylactically against all these infections and it does not work against adult worms. To avoid the spread of infection (e.g. scabies), frequently wash your clothing and bedding in hot water and keep all your non-washable items in a tightly sealed plastic bag for at least 3 days. Trim your nails frequently. People who come in contact with you (e.g. friends, family members and relatives) should also visit the doctor as soon as possible as a safety precaution. This medicine is generally safe and well tolerated. However, it may cause nausea, vomiting, stomach pain and muscle pain in few individuals. Contact your doctor if it bothers you. It is not recommended for use in pregnant or lactating women and in infants (weighing less than 15 kg). Consult your doctor before taking this medicine.


Ivermectin is an antiparasitic agent. It acts against the parasite by selectively binding to the glutamate-gated chloride ion channels present in the nerve and muscle cells of the organisms. Binding of ivermectin to glutamate-gated chloride ion channels increase the influx of chloride ion which results in hyperpolarization, leading to paralysis and death of the parasite.



Take IVERHEAL 12 as directed by your physician. It must be taken on an empty stomach either 2 hours before or after meals. Swallow the medicine as whole with a sip of water. In case of dispersible tablet, disperse the tablet in a teaspoonful of boiled and cooled water before administration. Your doctor will decide the correct dose and duration for you depending upon your age, body weight and severity of the infection. Continue to take this medicine, as long as your doctor tells you to do so, to obtain better results.
