Ivermectin pro and con

With the emphasis on the the word con in all its various meanings: New restrictions on prescribing ivermectin for COVID-19. Dated September 10, 2021.

Today, the TGA, acting on the advice of the Advisory Committee for Medicines Scheduling, has placed new restrictions on the prescribing of oral ivermectin. General practitioners are now only able to prescribe ivermectin for TGA-approved conditions (indications) – scabies and certain parasitic infections. Certain specialists including infectious disease physicians, dermatologists, gastroenterologists and hepatologists (liver disease specialists) will be permitted to prescribe ivermectin for other unapproved indications if they believe it is appropriate for a particular patient.

There is then this one might consider: From Glasgow protesters gather for ‘right to try’ different treatments.

Tonya Adams says she was treated by Dr. Turner using ivermectin and claims the treatment saved her life.

“I almost didn’t make it. He prescribed me the ivermectin–without the regimen he gave me I wouldn’t be here today,” said Adams.

Bureaucrats are people with no skin in any game they oversee. That has got to change.
