Levamisol is a broad spectrum antihelminthic which acts against the adult and immature forms of roundworms with pulmonary or gastrointestinal location in cattle, sheep and swine. Levamisole stimulates both parasympathetic and sympathetic ganglia in parasitic worms, causing succinate dehydrogenasis blockage and the rapid, irreversible paralysis of the parasites which are then eliminated by feces or by cough, respectively.
