Re: Where to buy ivermectin?

It is not registered here - so you cant.

If you are close to the german or french border you could nip over. In Germany it is sold under Driponin & France under - Mectizan or Stromectol - prescription only!

I used to bring it from the US in the form of 1.87% equine wormer in paste form. It seems to be unavailable now, even from that source. The pill form you shouldn't touch with a barge pole.

One can indeed still purchase Ivermectin dewormer in paste form for horses in the US. Whether or not one can get it shipped here I donít know, but it is for sure still available even if most equine dewormers now use combination drugs or other active ingredients. Ivermectin seems to be falling out of favor with animal dewormers, not sure if there is some resistance building or what but itís not often recommended for dogs anymore.

Re: Where to buy ivermectin?

Seems like something a vet would be able to sell you?

Not in Switzerland!

Also OP didnt state if it was for a pet.
Ivermectin is also authorised for use in humans.

But either way you are right in that doctor should be consulted (vet or human)
Ivermectin is not something one should use without medical supervision.

Isn't it amazing how people need this kind of stuff spelling out to them, that they shouldn't take drugs intended for animals and instead use drugs intended for humans? Maybe its better to just let people use all of these things and let natural selection take its' course.
