a little about ivermax 12


The chairman of the PAN faction of the DPR RI, Saleh Partaonan Daulay, urged the Food and Drug Monitoring Agency (BPOM) to immediately complete clinical trials of Ivermectin as a Covid-19 drug. "If it has been used, what needs to be done is a follow-up study. Including clinical trials and Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)," Saleh said in a press release, Monday (19/7). Indonesia has become a polemic when many countries have used it. Based on existing reports, Saleh said, Ivermectin has so far been considered effective for curing people exposed to the Coronavirus. "There must be an acceleration and unnecessary bureaucratic cuts. It would also be good if benchmarks were carried out with other countries that had already succeeded and had issued EUA," said Saleh Partaonan Dailey. In a situation like this, there must be a sense of emergency. The pandemic cannot be overcome in a business as usual format," he continued. The legislator from North Sumatra was previously very happy to hear that clinical trials of Ivermectin were being carried out in eight hospitals. Meanwhile, SOE Minister Erick Thohir said the government-owned pharmaceutical company, PT Indofarma (Persero) Tbk has received a distribution permit for the Covid-19 therapeutic drug, Ivermectin, from the Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM).

SOE Minister Erick Thohir said 4 million Ivermectin would be produced per month for Covid-19 therapeutic drugs. "We have started production, and God willing, with a production capacity of 4 million (tablets) per month, this drug is expected to be a solution for Covid-19," said Erick. Strongyloidiasis and Onchocerciasis). BPOM also said this drug still requires clinical trials to be used as a treatment for Covid-19.

Need clinical trials

The head of BPOM, Penny K Lukito, emphasized that further scientific support was needed for the use of Ivermectin as a Covid-19 therapeutic drug in Indonesia. By scientific support, he meant clinical trials.

Remember, Ivermectin contains harsh chemicals that can cause various side effects. Although there are indications that it helps to heal, Ivermectin cannot yet be categorized as a Covid-19 drug. "If we say a Covid-19 drug product must go through clinical trials first, but this drug of course with a doctor's prescription can be used as one of the therapies in treating the disease. protocol for the treatment of Covid-19" said PennyBPOM in a press statement regarding the confusion over the use of Ivermectin as a Covid-19 therapeutic drug in Indonesia. Here are the facts regarding Ivermectin:

1. There is potential

BPOM said that research for the prevention and treatment of Covid-19 had stated that Ivermectin had antiviral potential in in-vitro tests in the laboratory. However, there is no more convincing scientific evidence regarding its safety, efficacy, and effectiveness as a Covid-19 drug. The scientific evidence can only be done through further clinical trials.

2. Worm medicine

So far, the circulating license for the use of the drug Ivermectin is only for indications of worm infection (Strongyloidiasis and Onchocerciasis). Ivermectin 12 mg caplet is registered with the BPOM.

This drug is given in a single dose of 150-200 mcg/kg body weight with use once a year. Ivermectin is also a strong drug that must be purchased with a doctor's prescription and its use under the supervision of a doctor.

3. Side effects

Ivermectin used without a medical indication and a doctor's prescription in the long term can cause some side effects. These side effects include muscle or joint pain, skin rash, fever, dizziness, constipation, diarrhea, drowsiness, and Stevens-Johnson syndrome.

4. Expired

The production of Ivermectin for treatment in humans in Indonesia is still relatively new. Therefore, the POM Agency gave an expiration date of 6 months for the drug. The public is advised not to use the drug for more than 6 months from the production date stated on the packaging.

5. Don't buy online

BPOM found a lot of Ivermectin that is sold freely through online platforms. As a form of caution, BPOM asks the public not to buy Ivermectin drugs freely without a doctor's prescription, including through online platforms.

Ivermectin should only be used as prescribed by a doctor. If you get a doctor's prescription, you can buy Ivermectin at official pharmaceutical service facilities, such as pharmacies and hospitals.

Those are the facts about Ivermectin. Before using Ivermectin for Covid-19 therapeutic drugs, consult your doctor.
