Pet medicine not intended for humans
You may have heard claims on social media or the news that ivermectin, a medicine used for dogs, cats, horses, and cows, can treat or cure COVID-19.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns people not to take drugs to treat or prevent COVID-19 unless prescribed by their doctor. Humans should never take ivermectin, which is intended for animals. Several people have tried taking ivermectin for horses and have been hospitalized.
Ivermectin, which is labeled for animals, contains ingredients that are not safe for humans, according to the FDA. It could also contain more ivermectin than people should be taking. Too much ivermectin can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, low blood pressure, allergic reactions, dizziness, imbalance, seizures, coma, and death.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced the recall of the following products. Consumers should stop using recalled products unless otherwise stated. Due to the pandemic, some of the funds may not be available. Contact the recalling company for details. Submit damage reports to CPSC’s online searchable product safety database at www.SaferProducts.gov. A searchable database of food and medical product recalls can be found at www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/default.htm.
