Ivermectin in the Equine form – is it SAFE?
Thanks Mike from NJ… I do recommend that anyone planning to depend on horse paste do a test first. I am not sure if I mentioned it or not, but I have also taken a few 0.4 mg/kg doses in the past – no noticeable side effects at all. Again, if you are at all worried, have Benadryl at the ready – it helps in any kind of anaphylactic reaction.
Back to PEG allergy.. here is one data point I found – noting that it’s publication was apparently motivated by concerns regarding the PEG in the vax;
How common is PEG allergy?
A review of the scientific literature reported 37 cases of an allergic reaction to PEG from 1977 to 2016. However, only 28 of these cases actually met the criteria for a severe allergic reaction (i.e. anaphylaxis).
Authors from a recently published report on PEG allergy concluded that the risk of developing an allergic reaction increases when the molecular weight of the PEG is high. None of the patients in this report reacted to PEG 2000, which is the molecular weight of PEG in the COVID-19 vaccines.
In other words, a PEG allergy is very rare!
You can search the Inactive Ingredient in this FDA database.
To answer OP’s question on ingredients:
the 1% ProMectin Injectable is “a clear, ready-to-use, sterile solution containing 1% ivermectin, 40% glycerol formal, and propylene glycol, q.s. ad (translated: enough to make) 100%.
Let’s all use some common sense and do just a bit of research…
Foods that Contain Propylene Glycol
Baking mixes for foods like cakes, muffins, cinnamon buns, biscuits, cupcakes, and pancakes.
Powdered drink mixes.

On to glycerol formal
I have been taking IVM twice a month for nearly a year, and except for a tendency to canter at times, which is difficult with only two legs, I seem to be fine.
This is not medical advice, but I and some close friends from the hot zone in Queens have been using it for a while, prorated by body weight. None of us have noticed any bad effects. Apple flavored with an applesauce chaser makes it more palatable. Tastes great compared to the Desitin I accidentally started brushing my teeth with once when my kids were in diapers. I did hear Dr. Tenpenny suggest that it’s a damn sight better than following the Fauci Death Protocol of remdesivir with a follow-up intubation while immobilized, a sure way to build up enough fluid in the lungs to kill you. That’s the way the only friend I’ve lost to “COVID” died. His wife, poor woman, got priority access to a vaccine, and now has a heart condition. She’s twenty years younger than I am. Just stress I’m sure. My doctor, brave soul, did prescribe a small amount of ivermectin which I used and I have some backup from FLCCC which I’m saving. I’m afraid it will soon be unavailable at the Farm Store unless I am a licensed horse owner or can prove I am part centaur. No, horse owner licenses have not yet been issued by the state, but I’m sure they’re working on it. Once again, I am not a doctor and am in no position to be giving medical advice to anyone. I do know enough to distrust any recommendations coming from Fuaci or the serial liars at the CDC and FDA.
At the most fractional gram dose and frequency of the paste required, it’s pretty far down on the list of concerns. One magic of IVM is the tiny dose for results.
We had a friend here in town that used the horse paste for what she thought was covid or delta or whatever, she got better immediately with no side effects whatsoever.
Can anyone give any advice on which brands to go for? Any experience with Bimectin?
Also why do the data sheets always include something along these lines:
(ii) Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals
Do not eat, drink or smoke while handling the product. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. If accidental skin contact occurs, wash the affected area immediately with soap and water. If accidental eye exposure occurs, flush the eyes immediately with water and, if necessary, get medical attention.
Wash hands after use.
This put me off when I was looking into it before.
Bimectin is the same as Durmectin (relabelled Bimectin). Both manufactured by Bimeda in Canada. These seem to be the brands most likely purchased in the US and Canada.
The precautions are probably because the drugs were not tested on humans. CYA
