"The veterinary version of ivermectin, especially at high doses, can be dangerous for humans and may cause serious health problems such as vomiting, diarrhea, low blood pressure, allergic reactions, dizziness, seizures, coma and even death," said Health Canada in the release.
The federal agency also confirmed there have been multiple reports of people in the U.S. needing hospitalization after using the horse medication.
