||Intravenous or intramuscular use.
||Ivermectin acts by binding selectively and with high affinity to glutamate gated chloride channels which occur in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells. This leads to hyperpolarisation of these cells, resulting in paralysis and death of the parasite. Compounds of this class may also interact with other ligand gated chloride channels, such as those gated by the neurotransmitter γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
