Abstract


The anticonvulsant effect of ivermectin was noticed at 5 ntg/kg, 7.5 mg/kg and 10 mg/kg in picrotoxin induced convulsion. In maximal electroshock induced convulsion, ivermectin at 7.5 mg/kg and 10 mg/kg body weight controlled only the tonic component of convulsion but had no effect on clonic component
