Levamisole alternative...

Searching for a med available with the UK that contains Levamisole is proving interesting. Can anyone give me any guidance on the do's and dont's please?

Ive searched for all of 5 minutes and come across Piperzine, Tramisol, IVOMEC/Ivermectin and Target Drench - the first 3 I got off a website with info on how to worm your doves(!) and the second one was a sheep dip. I suspect that other ingredients within sheep dip would be unadvisable for loach dipping but the price of 48 per 2.5 litres was attractive! :P

I intend to call a vet tomorrow and ask if they can supply me with as pure an injectable form of the drug as I can get - if offered a combination med, should I take it?
