    Mswillie, your original calculation came up with 0.16 MG, not 0.16 GM. That's what confused me.

    The question was "how do you convert the 1.87% paste into 3 mg doses"

    0.16 mg of paste (provided it is homogenous) contains 3 mg of ivermectin.

    Oops. You're right, that should have been 0.16 grams or 160 mg. My mistake. And I do this for a living. Geesh. I'll edit.

    Everyone's high school math and science teachers should be ashamed right now.

    This whole thread is scary to think about!!
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    Why would ivermectin work on human lyme, and not on our horses?

    Maybe a higher concentration of ivermectin is needed? For both human and horse?? Anybody know?

    How long of a duration is the human to take the 3mg of ivermectin for lyme?

    There is ivermectin in many of the heart worm applications for dogs/cats. Not sure you would like the beef/liver flavor though. But maybe that is a cross to bare since it may be the correct dosage for you. Maybe the dosage # for a dog is correct for a human?

    Ivermectin is not effective against the Lyme organism. Not in any way, shape, or form. It is NOT used to treat actual Lyme disease. There is a subculture in the chronic Lyme community that believes that Lyme sufferers are also afflicted with parasites, like "microfilaria" and liver flukes and all manner of worms. That is the (I use the term loosely) "rationale" for using dewormers. It is not supported by ANY actual medical evidence, but there sure are a lot of blogs about it, many of which make one wish they had a tinfoil hat. The world of "alternative thinking" about Lyme disease is a JUNGLE, top to bottom and side to side.
