Ivermectin pro and con


With the emphasis on 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.

The data seems clear when you compare Uttar Pradesh and Kerala: ivermectin not only works but probably works better than any of the vaccines, especially for the Delta strain.

This decision by the TGA appears to be an actual crime against humanity. I am quite serious about that.

Australia is backwards and anti-scientific.

22 June 2021 Editor’s Note: Readers are alerted that the conclusions of this paper are subject to criticisms that are being considered by the editors and the publisher. A further editorial response will follow the resolution of these issues. (LOL!)

Considering the urgency of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, detection of various new mutant strains and future potential re-emergence of novel coronaviruses, repurposing of approved drugs such as Ivermectin could be worthy of attention. This evidence-based review article aims to discuss the mechanism of action of ivermectin against SARS-CoV-2 and summarizing the available literature over the years. A schematic of the key cellular and biomolecular interactions between Ivermectin, host cell, and SARS-CoV-2 in COVID-19 pathogenesis and prevention of complications have been proposed.

It beggars belief that our “betters” have determined that Doctors may not deliver what they consider to be an effective treatment, to sick people.

Agree 100%. It seems unbelievable that the very organisation put in place to ensure the safety and efficacy of medications et al for the Australian population should be making decisions that are diametrically opposed to their so called mission. Assessing risk at the behest of the government and via ‘feelings’ while completely ignoring the real ‘science’.

Vile and despicable, captured by group think and without sufficient intelligence or insight to see past short term impact to the unforeseen consequences beyond.

The Leftards really hate that Orange Man.
Once you had the Looney Left as extremists.
Now they all are raging rampart loons.
It’s like a borg.
Inhumane bastards.

I agree, but why? Who or what has captured our government and bureaucrats to such an extent that Australia has become the talk of the world? What on earth have the police been told to make them turn against their own people?

How can Scomo possibly justify the tyranny and coercion either as a Liberal Party member or a Christian? Who is pulling his strings? Why haven’t more Lib pollies walked? Are they being threatened, bribed, drugged or what?

And then when all my exasperation has been spent banging up against those walls, I have to ask how any sane, sensible, thinking Australian can believe this is “all about the ‘rona” and roll up their sleeves and wait for their passports to be allowed to do all that, as Australians, we have a right to do without the government’s tracking or say-so?

One consolation is the knowledge that good doctors of the old school *will* prescribe it regardless.

Just for starters, I bet the director of the TGA is working from home on full pay.

The response to the virus – formulated by health bureaucrats – has created a two tiered Australia.

Ironically, the long term consequences to health are going to be far worse than anything the virus has wrought.

We need to talk constantly about Nuremberg 2.0, we shouldn’t just dream about it, we should do it. An awful lot of people need to spend time in prison.

It only takes one lefty incompetent to get into a senior position in any of these organisations and then they recruit like-minded people. And here we are.

Now why would John Skerritt deny the dying life saving Ivermectin . Have Scabies invaded the the super markets and lice are marching up the school desks encrusting every child in the nations hair? If John Skerritt,Jeanette Young ,Brett Sutton and Kerry Chant are the public faces of the medical proffession there needs to be a rethink on our health system before they destroy the entire system.
The Brisbane Childrens hospital doctors and nurses with Palliative care doctors on call 24/7 are this families main supports.

Is it that the secret contracts with AZ et al expressly prohibit the use of any prophylactics or alternative treatments?

That sounds suspiciously like a recommendation in favour of flensing of civil servants who misuse a regime’s assetts or powers. Wiki tells me “ According to Herodotus, Sisamnes, a corrupt judge under Cambyses II of Persia, was flayed for accepting a bribe.”

The old ways are best is sometimes true but this seems a little extreme. Just a little. Not a lot.

Mater put up a post the other day (Mater’s Musings #27 – Don’t Catch Cancer) that explained the original focus of emergency authorisation for medicines was to allow experimental medicines to be administered to cancer patients who are quite clearly at the end of their road.

There are five clauses that are associated with the provisional authority. In the case of the vaccines, two of those clauses have been stricken from the requirements for emergency authorisation. One of those clauses is that before authorisation can be given, there can be no alternate treatment available.

By getting rid of Ivermectin, that seems to deal with alternative treatment regimes.

  1. The State is always talking about ‘keeping you safe’. Clearly the State is incompetent. How is a murderous lunatic like…
