LEVIWORM 200

Water soluble powder

COMPOSITION

Levamisole base 200 mg/ g (as hydrochloride)

PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Levamisole is a broad spectrum anthelmintic of the imidothiazole group. It causes irreversible paralysis and passive elimination of nematodes. At recommended doses, it is effective against mature and immature stages of a wide range of gastro-intestinal and lung nematodes:

Pigs: gastro-intestinal worms (Ascaris suum, Strongyloides ransomi, Trichuris suis, Hyostrongylus rubidus, Oesophagostomum spp.), lungworms (Metastrongylus apri) and adult kidneyworms associated with the urinary tract (Stephanurus dentatus).

Poultry: Ascaridia galli, Heterakis gallinae, Capillaria spp., Amidostomum anseris (goose).

Cattle, sheep, goats: gastro-intestinal worms (Haemonchus spp., Trichostrongylus spp., Ostertagia spp., Cooperia spp., Nematodirus spp., Oesophagostomum spp., Chabertia ovina, Trichuris spp., Bunostomum spp.) and lungworms (Dictiocaulus spp.). It is also active against inhibited Ostertagia sp. and Haemonchus contortus larvae in sheep, but not against inhibited Ostertagia-larvae (Ostertagiosis II) in cattle.

INDICATIONS

Treatment and prevention of nematode infection of the respiratory and gastro-intestinal tract.

CONTRA-INDICATIONS

Simultaneous use with anthelmintics with a similar cholinomimetic mechanism of action (e.g. pyrantel, morantel, methyridine and diethylcarbamazine) may enhance the toxicity of levamisole and should be avoided.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Individual oral dose:

Cattle, sheep, goats: 7.5 mg levamisole/ kg b.w. or 7.5 g LEVIWORM 200 per 200 kg b.w.

Group treatment:

Pigs, poultry: 25 mg levamisole/ kg b.w. or 50 g LEVIWORM 200 per 100áL drinking water. Medicate sufficient water for consumption in 24 hours.

Administer for 1 day. Repeat treatment after 2-3 weeks if animals are likely to be re-infected.

UNDESIRABLE EFFECTS

Undesirable effects are unlikely to occur at recommended doses. If pigs are infected with lungworms, intermittent coughing and vomiting may be observed soon after medication with recommended doses. This reaction is due to the expulsion of worms from the lungs and will be over in one to several hours.

SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS AND WARNINGS

Do not use in horses.
