Ivermectin is constantly in the news these days. I've found everything in COVID-19 where there is so much protestation really means it is rattling the narrative.
I've included two key articles on Ivermectin mode of action for review. I am absolutely against the use of this medicine for self-administration by the public, and adamantly discourage people from using veterinary sources of Ivermectin.
However, there is, nevertheless, a clear scientific rationale for the conceptual use of this drug for COVID. As it is FDA approved, any licensed practitioner is allowed...BY FDA REGULATORY AUTHORITY... to use this medicine as they deem appropriate. Period. There is more authority by statute to use an approved FDA drug experimentally by scientific rationale than a non-FDA-approved drug by emergency use application authorization.
This is an observation of FEDERAL STATUE AND REGULATIONS FROM THE FDA. Not a particular endorsement or criticism of using Ivermectin.
This will get removed as no truth is allowed on social media. But few people understand the FDA regulations for medications. Unfortunately, as a former member of the Public Health Service who worked at the FDA... I do.
