How does Ivecop 6 mg work?
The medicine contains Ivermectin in significant amounts. It is a semi-synthetic, anthelmintic agent.
The drug selectively binds to the Glutamate-gated Chloride ion channels in the nerve and muscle cells of the organism.
This binding results in the cell membrane becoming more permeable to Chloride ions.
The excessive ions cause the cell to Hyperpolarize, which results in the paralysis and death of the parasite.
