Two patients intoxicated with ivermectin were hospitalized at the Louis Pasteur University Hospital (UNLP) in Košice last month. In the case of one patient, this is a life-threatening condition with impaired consciousness and other serious neurological symptoms. UNLP spokeswoman Monika Krišková informed about it on Monday.

“In these patients, we recorded more than 1000-fold exceedances of the concentration of this drug in the blood,” said the head of the Department of Occupational Medicine and Clinical Toxicology, UNLP, Marek Varga.

Doctors do not recommend it and warn against using it

Hospital doctors do not recommend the use of ivermectin. “I do not recommend taking any medicine without a doctor’s recommendation and control,” said Martin Novotný, head of the UNLP Department of Infectious Diseases and Travel Medicine.

“In the case of ivermectin, we also have veterinary products of various strengths and uses on the market. In practice, we have seen the use of drops for external use to treat operens that patients have taken orally. Not to mention horse traps. Due to lay use, ivermectin overdose can occur very quickly, “Novotný pointed out.

In addition to liver damage, ivermectin use has serious neurological effects. “The symptoms vary in severity, from fatigue to mild malaise to aggression and impaired consciousness,” said toxicologist Varga.

UNLP experts emphasize that ivermectin is not a cure for COVID-19. “She is not and will not be. No expert studies have confirmed this. The original indications that it might be helpful have been refuted. This is also confirmed by our practice, which shows that we repeatedly admit to hospitalization patients who took ivermectin and often ended up with artificial lung ventilation. Our ivermectin-intoxicated patient also developed severe covidic pneumonia, which in itself requires hospitalization. In this way, we had to hospitalize the patient for intoxication, “added the infectologist Novotný.

UNLP Košice provides only acute and urgent medical care

Louis Pasteur University Hospital (UNLP) Košice provides patients with only acute and urgent medical care. Her spokeswoman Monika Krišková informed her that all beds with artificial lung ventilation (UPV) in the UNLP were occupied.
