Human Hosts and Hostesses,
I've been expressly forbidden to prescribe ivermectin for COVID, using the address and phone number of my clinic.
This lies within the context of my seeking to care for my established patients and those who present ill with COVID through October.
The assumption is that I will not work after the end of October, due to being fired for refusal to accept SARS-CoV-2 mandatory vaccination..
I don't have a workable alternative to provide this specific service. I can advise the OTC supplements I posted 2 days ago in "OTC COVID Rxs".
I can prescribe doxycycline or azithromycin as part of a balanced treatment approach, with vitamin-D, Quercetin (& lecithin) and zinc.
I can prescribe azelastin nasal spray, which is OTC-approved, but not OTC-available yet.
Aspirin and inhaled steroids can be added for some higher risk patients with inflammatory conditions like diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease.
Monoclonal antibody infusions are available locally, and may well be of benefit in the first 5 days of symptoms. (They are approved to 10 days.)
There is a fundamental objection that I am presenting to patients that these things have been shown to help on-average, with COVID.
I have seen that to be the case for over a year with the ivermectin-based treatment protocol, having only one patient progress to need hospitalization on treatment, the day after he started, last weekend, early in his second week of illness. To another, that experience is "anecdotal", but while following patients closely over time for a year, it is confirmatory of the hypothesis that this treatment is beneficial. https://covid19criticalcare.com/ivermectin-in-covid-19/
Studies, many studies support that hypothesis, as does the experience of nations which have employed this treatment as a public health measure. Peruvian and African experiences of benefit are dramatic in graphic form.
Peruvian national data with, without, with, then again without ivermectin treatment policy after 2020 presidential election:
Why COVID-19 is not so spread in Africa: How does Ivermectin affect it? This is the source of the graphic posted yesterday, showing peaks of total deaths per 100,000, corresponding to waves of COVID infections, in African countries that do not routinely use ivermectin to suppress parasitic worms, but no death peaks in countries that do use ivermectin as a routine public health measure. There is also more obesity in the countries not using ivermectin. A risk for worse outcomes.
I don't have more to say or present. I seek to help my patients in their transition to care with other doctors, nurse practitioners and Physician Assistants, while standing morally with Vaccine Conscientious Objectors, and treating patients who have COVID to the best of my remaining ability.
