A man in San Antonio, Texas, went into a Walgreens to have a prescription filled that a licensed doctor wrote for him. He began videoing the encounter after one of the pharmacy techs apparently would not take the prescription. The prescription the doctor wrote was for ivermectin.
The video begins when the man asked to speak to the pharmacist. The pharmacist on duty came to the counter to speak with the customer who told him he has a prescription for ivermectin to pick up. The pharmacist replied, “We won’t fill ivermectin for COVID.”
The man told the pharmacist that a licensed doctor wrote the prescription for him. Pharmacist guy didn’t care.
The man countered him by saying it’s against the law. A back and forth then ensued, with no it isn’t, yes it is.
Interestingly, the customer said that a pharmacist does not have the right to come between a doctor and his patient. The pharmacist fired back that ivermectin is not approved for COVID. I think that’s where the pharmacist and Walgreens have screwed up.
Apparently, some pharmacies have fallen for the lies and misinformation being spread by the Biden administration. The Democrats do not want a therapeutic to treat COVID-19. What would be the point of vaccines?
The FDA says that drugs are used for what’s called “off label” which means that a doctor may prescribe a drug that has been approved for one particular disease to be used to treat a different disease.
From the FDA’s website:
Understanding Unapproved Use of Approved Drugs “Off Label”
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.
You may be asking yourself why your healthcare provider would want to prescribe a drug to treat a disease or medical condition that the drug is not approved for. One reason is that there might not be an approved drug to treat your disease or medical condition. Another is that you may have tried all approved treatments without seeing any benefits. In situations like these, you and your healthcare provider may talk about using an approved drug for an unapproved use to treat your disease or medical condition.
When you think about it, COVID-19 fits the very reason for the FDA’s take on off label prescriptions. It is a drug that doctors judge as medically appropriate for their patients and there is no approved drug to treat a patient’s medical condition, in this case, COVID-19.
The Walgreens customer in this case was correct. The FDA says that a drug that has been approved by the FDA can be used to treat a different disease (off label) if the doctor judges it is appropriate medically for the patient. With the large number of doctors successfully treating COVID infected patients with ivermectin and posting their results online, it is well known that ivermectin is an effective treatment for COVID-19 for most patients. Many people wouldn’t know that because the social media tech tyrants are censoring that kind of information. They are in on the scam with the Biden administration.
The pharmacist was told by his superiors to not fill prescriptions for ivermectin. Who told his superiors?
Representative Andy Harris (R-MD), who is also a practicing anesthesiologist, said he has prescribed ivermectin as an off label prescription to treat COVID-19, and he slammed pharmacies for not making the drug readily available, according to a recent radio interview, reported the Washington Post.
“I wrote a prescription for ivermectin, I guess it’s now three weeks ago, four weeks ago, and yeah, couldn’t find a pharmacy to fill it,” he said on the “Casey & Company” show September 17. “It’s gotten bad. . . . The pharmacists are just refusing to fill it.”
Harris went on to say that the national pharmacy organizations are “saying pharmacies shouldn’t do it. It’s ridiculous.”
The Walgreens customer was challenged by the pharmacist who told him he needs to do research on ivermectin and the law, and the customer fired back a series of data on the treatment of COVID-19 using ivermectin. He knew what he was talking about. The customer pointed out to the pharmacist that we can use ivermectin off label and the pharmacist kept saying that it was not approved for COVID. According to the FDA’s website, ivermectin does not have to be approved for anything since it is already an approved drug, so long as a doctor judges that the medicine will be good for their patient.
This trashing of ivermectin is purely political. The Biden administration has an irrational goal of getting everyone vaccinated for COVID to the point where they are issuing unconstitutional vaccine mandates. Having a therapeutic available that is successful in treating COVID-19 makes it unnecessary to have everyone get vaccinated. And according to federal law, you cannot do a vaccine mandate if there is an alternative treatment available. That’s why the Biden administration and left-wing organizations are reaching out to people in the medical community to tell them to block the use of ivermectin for political reasons.
Once you learn of the history of ivermectin being used to treat COVID patients, you will realize that the majority of the hundreds of thousands of American deaths were needless.
The following video is a news story produced by One American News Network that goes over the history of ivermectin and how it has been a lifesaver for COVID patients lucky enough to get it. The video will shock and anger you when you learn of the benefits of treating COVID-19 patients with ivermectin, knowing that woke politicians are now trying to ban its use for treating COVID for political purposes.
Folks, we are being lied to by our government. An effective treatment for COVID-19 patients is being talked down and treated like it doesn’t work. Thousands of doctors worldwide beg to differ. Why would the Biden administration do this? Why are they blocking doctors from being able to treat their patients?
