Spinosad - Overview
Spinosad, marketed under the name Natroba, is a medication used in treating head lice. People who need a spinosad topical suspension prescription for humans can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Natroba when appropriate to do so.
What Is Spinosad Used For?
Spinosad belongs to a class of medications known as pediculicides and is made by the bacterium, Saccharopolyspora spinosa, in the soil. While spinosad itself is used in treating a variety of pests, Natroba topical suspension is specifically used in treating head lice infestations. Spinosad is thought to work because it excites the neurons in the parasites. In doing so, spinosad causes the neurons to be excessively excited, eventually resulting in death after paralysis. One of the benefits of spinosad when compared to other lice treatments is its relative safety and the ease with which it can be applied when treating an infestation.
