Ivermectin is currently being investigated as a treatment for the coronavirus, which is the virus that causes COVID-19. Never take ivermectin in large amounts or longer than recommended by your doctor. Follow all the directions on the recipe label. To effectively cure the infection, you may need to take ivermectin again a few months or a year after the first dose. If you have a weak immune system caused by illness or taking certain medications, you may need more than one dose of ivermectin. Some people with weak immune systems need to take this medication regularly. Follow your doctor's instructions. Since ivermectin is usually prescribed as a single dose, you may not follow the dosing schedule. If you stick to a schedule, take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. Skip the missed dose if it's time for the next scheduled dose. Do not take additional medication to make up for the missed dose.

Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding because it is not known whether ivermectin will harm your baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant when using this medication. Follow all the directions on the recipe label. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or longer than recommended.
