Levamisole is a veterinary pharmaceutical used primarily to treat worm infestations in livestock. It has also been used experimentally and historically to treat various autoimmune disorders and cancers in humans. Most recently it has been used as an adulterant in cocaine, which is an excellent “cutting” agent because it is white, cheap, available in powder form, easily purchased, and thought to increase the euphoric effects of cocaine.

What is Levamisole Hydrochloride?
Levamisole Hydrochloride (Levamisole HCl), is an anthelmintic (anti-worm) agent commonly used in large livestock such as cattle, pigs and sheep.
In 1971 it was found to have immunostimulatory properties and investigation into its use in humans began to expand.
Levamisole is an often recommended medication for treating parasites, especially camallanus worm. Unfortunately this medication must be dosed low enough to keep the fish safe and it does not always kill the parasites. More often than not it will only paralyze the parasite. This is why it is critical to dose carefully and to do the recommended deep gravel vacs to clean up paralyzed parasites. One added benefit of treating with Levamisole is that it gives the immune system a boost and the fish may appear to be healthy suddenly.
Treats: Stomach worms–Haemonchus spp; Ostertagia spp; Trichostrongylus spp; Roundworms– Nematodirus spp (which include threadworms); Cooperia spp; Nodular worms–Oesophagostomum; Chabertia spp; Hookworms–Bunostomum spp; Necator spp; and Ancylostoma spp; and Lungworms– Dictyocaulus spp.
Does NOT treat Cestodes (tapeworms) or Trematodes (flatworms or flukes)
Safe for invertebrates and plants.
Treatment Plan: Dose 90mg/10 gallons or 1/4 teaspoon per 100 gallons. In 24 hours do a 75-100% water change with deep gravel vacs. Repeat for a second treatment. Then repeat both in 3 weeks. May need a 3rd round as well to break the parasite reproductive cycle. Keep lights off during treatment as this medication is light sensitive.
Levamisole hydrochloride has beneficial effects on host defense mechanisms and restores depressed immune responses in animals and human.Another interesting use of levamisole in humans is as a treatment for common warts (verruca vulgaris).
