About Iverlax-12 Tablet 10's

Iverlax-12 Tablet 10's belongs to the class of anti-parasitic medicines, also known as anthelmintics. It is a widely used medication to treat various infections caused by parasites, including strongyloidiasis (a roundworm infection) and control onchocerciasis (a worm infection that affects skin and eyes). These parasitic infections can affect the quality of life and lead to life-threatening conditions if left untreated, especially in people with weakened defence (immune) systems.

Iverlax-12 Tablet 10's contains ivermectin, which works by attaching to the inside of the parasite. It finally paralyzes and destroys the parasite or it prevents adult parasites from creating larvae for a while. Thus it effectively treats parasitic infections.

Take this medication as advised by your doctor. Do not alter the dose without your doctor’s advice. Common side-effects of Iverlax-12 Tablet 10's are headache, dizziness, muscle pain, nausea, or upset stomach. You may also experience orthostatic hypotension (dizziness when getting up too quickly from a sitting or lying position). Most of these side effects of Iverlax-12 Tablet 10's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Before starting Iverlax-12 Tablet 10's, inform your doctor if you are allergic to ivermectin or other medications. Do not consume Iverlax-12 Tablet 10's if you are pregnant and breastfeeding without consulting the doctor. Tell your doctor if you are taking sedatives, anti-anxiety, or anti-epileptic drugs. Tell your doctor if you have a medical history of meningitis, human African trypanosomiasis, African sleeping sickness (an infection caused by the bite of tsetse fly in African countries), or illness that weakens the immune system, such as HIV or AIDS. Before taking the Iverlax-12 Tablet 10's, inform your doctor about your medical history and other medications you are currently taking to rule out any potential negative effects.

Uses of Iverlax-12 Tablet 10's

Parasitic infections [Strongyloidiasis (a threadworm infection), onchocerciasis (a worm infection)]

Medicinal Benefits

Iverlax-12 Tablet 10's is an anti-parasitic medication. It can kill the parasites by acting on the nervous system. It starves the worms by inducing paralysis, consequently leading them to death. In the case of strongyloidiasis, it kills the parasites present in the intestine, completely treating the infection. In the case of onchocerciasis, it can only control the infection as it can kill the developing worms but not the adult worms.

    Diet & Lifestyle Advise

    • It is important to have a healthy diet high in nutrients and low in refined sugars and processed foods. Fibre is precious because it keeps your intestines constantly working while washing.
    • A nutrient-rich diet is also essential to improve your immune system, as parasites are flushed out of your body.
    • Garlic, honey, pumpkin, and papaya seeds are all labelled as anti-parasitic foods to be included in your diet. 
    • Try to choose a sugar-free, grain-free diet. 
    • Suggest limiting fruit consumption to reduce dietary sugars further.
    • Avoid eating raw or undercooked meat and seafood to prevent more parasitic infections after cleansing.

    Special Advise

    • To reduce dizziness upon standing, avoid standing up too quickly from a sitting or lying position. Get up slowly and rest your feet on the floor for a few minutes before standing up.
