Some of the hospitals and pharmacists around the country are truly SICK, denying a possible cure to their patients, not allowing the use of the drug Ivermectin off-label to combat COVID-19.
Off-label means to use medications for something else other than what they were developed for. And it happens all the time. Plenty of doctors in the United States (and veterinarians) use drugs off-label.
Even the FDA website says, “From the FDA perspective, once the FDA approves a drug, healthcare providers generally may prescribe the drug for an unapproved use when they judge that it is medically appropriate for their patient.”
Why then, do hospitals and pharmacies have the power to deny the usage of a drug, using their own judgement to override a doctor’s prescription?
Well, because of politics, of course.
Countless media outlets have been going after the drug Ivermectin, falsely labeling it as only a horse dewormer (which it can also be used for) and ridiculing it because republicans support it and because the leftists need to push failing vaccines instead.
Never mind that Ivermectin is one of the most widely prescribed medications in the entire world and is the fourth most commonly prescribed medication in the United States.
Never mind that it’s been around since the ’70’s.
Never mind it’s a cheap drug and only costs about $3.57 a day (and that’s a big problem to those who want to make money off the pandemic.)
Never mind that the drug has been shown to be successfully used to treat people with COVID-19.
Never mind that the FDA says it’s the doctor’s place to decide what medications should be used yet they are still going after Ivermectin as a COVID-19 therapeutic and have horse photos on the FDA website to dissuade people from using it.
Excuse me if I trust my own research and my doctor’s opinion over the fake news media, the democrats, Fauci and the politicized Biden FDA.
It’s a ludicrous world that we live in when people who are dying can take advantage of Trump’s “Right to Try” legislation and use experimental (and non-FDA approved) drugs to save their lives but leftist hospitals and pharmacies are denying the off-label use of an FDA approved drug.
The Right to Try Act allows patients diagnosed with life-threatening diseases or conditions who have tried all approved treatment options and who are unable to participate in a clinical trial to access certain unapproved treatments.
The FDA’s website says that they care about you if you have a life-threatening disease.
They say “for patients with serious or immediately life-threatening diseases or conditions, the FDA remains committed to enhancing access to promising medicines for those unable to access investigational medical products…”
They don’t seem committed to me to be able to enhance access to anything unless their politics allows it and Biden and Fauci gives them the green light.
And it’s pretty obvious that the FDA will not seriously and objectively study Ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19 because of their “hatred of Trump” says Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
That along with their laser focus on vaccines instead of treatments has led the leftists to discredit and reject many therapeutics including Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, Regeneron and Monoclonal Antibodies.
Meanwhile, people are dying, being denied therapeutics that might be able to help them.
Meanwhile, people are dying because of politics.
62-year-old Colleen DeLuca died of COVID-19 in October in New Jersey before her husband David was able to get a court order to administer Ivermectin.
The hospital she was in refused to use the drug because it’s not part of their COVID-19 protocol.
Colleen and David met in 10th grade and had been together ever since, eloping in 1977. They had six kids over the years and 10 grandchildren.
Colleen had already beat cancer twice and had other conditions including asthma. They wore masks and disinfected, taking precautions, knowing that they were both at high risk from COVID-19 because of their health conditions. The ambulance took her to the hospital at the end of September after she was infected with COVID-19 and that was the last time David saw her awake.
Because his own doctor would not prescribe Ivermectin, David got it through a telehealth meeting with a doctor in Oklahoma. He took the medication himself and starting getting better. Then he asked the hospital to give Colleen the same thing and they said no.
David said this about the hospital and the legal system: “I trusted the system to help and they didn’t care.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed many greedy, controlling and evil people in politics, the media and even in the medical world – and now we know who and what they really are.
