my my, look who just about the only people in america getting ivermectin right now are…
now granted, this is for intestinal parasites, but it’s also explicit in the CDC guidance and mandates.
so perhaps one might be forgiven for taking FDA claims that “ivermectin is unsafe” with more than a few grains of salt…
this drug has been taken by billions (with a B) of people globally. it’s a literal wonder drug for which the developers won a nobel prize.
perhaps if the FDA were not so busy issuing political fatwas and driving out their non-politicized vaccine people, they might see data like this and think “huh. maybe we should investigate rather than vilify this.”
because maybe it would save some lives and improve some outcomes.
but they probably won’t and schools and hospitals and doctors will keep being forced not to trial or use it despite many studies showing efficacy (especially as a prophylactic) while total failures like remdesivir remain on the market clogging up hospital space, running up huge bills, and doing nothing.
and people will mistake this political posturing for health policy and propaganda for evidence based medicine.
there is zero consistency here and less honesty.
i mean, what can one really say apart from:
I identify as an Afghan refugee.
Antiviral (e.g. HIV, dengue, encephalitis)
Recent research has confounded the belief, held for most of the past 40 years, that ivermectin was devoid of any antiviral characteristics. Ivermectin has been found to potently inhibit replication of the yellow fever virus, with EC50 values in the sub-nanomolar range. It also inhibits replication in several other flaviviruses, including dengue, Japanese encephalitis and tick-borne encephalitis, probably by targeting non-structural 3 helicase activity.97 Ivermectin inhibits dengue viruses and interrupts virus replication, bestowing protection against infection with all distinct virus serotypes, and has unexplored potential as a dengue antiviral.98
Ivermectin has also been demonstrated to be a potent broad-spectrum specific inhibitor of importin α/β-mediated nuclear transport and demonstrates antiviral activity against several RNA viruses by blocking the nuclear trafficking of viral proteins. It has been shown to have potent antiviral action against HIV-1 and dengue viruses, both of which are dependent on the importin protein superfamily for several key cellular processes. Ivermectin may be of import in disrupting HIV-1 integrase in HIV-1 as well as NS-5 (non-structural protein 5) polymerase in dengue viruses.99, 100
What?! You mean it has other uses than as a horse wormer? (Sarcasm) looking at msm for the last few days and all the hysteria over ivermectin one would never know this. 🙄
yup- have been telling people, and even those with a MASTERS IN PUBLIC HEALTH that people have been taking this drug for 40+ years. Why don't they know this and why is it being kept from being prescribed by Drs. I hear pharmacies won't fill the Rx. Guess I am headed to the Feed/Tractor store if I get sick! (I had some on hand as I was giving it to a mangy coyote for a long time- needed to replenish my stock much earlier I guess!)

Over 5000 C19 cases successfully treated in the pandemic (HCQ/doxy or Azithromycin/ZN months 3/20 to 9/20 and HCQ/IVM 10/20-present). They use IVM since 9/20 and have 1/50 mortality compared to Imperial County i.e.
I read that it fills the receptors that the spike proteins would attach to before the spikes can do so. Pretty amazing for horse worming med. Pretty clever those horses.

Scroll down and you will see. It is not the CDC saying, give them ivermectin as a precursor to Covid. I am from Brazil and we use Ivermectina maybe once a month or for a gut cleanse if we have eaten shell fish, or any river fish, or traveled to the jungles (Pantanal, Amazon) or the Northeast where sanitation can be so so and water --- not so good.
Don't really go for single-variable explanations that don't at least consider confounders.
The jury is still out regarding IVM esp concerning its risk profile. There are safer alternatives that are readily available for now https://t.me/vaccinereversal
us government is untrustworthy.
For anyone in Pennsylvania who might want or need Ivermectin...
I ordered from a drop shipper on India Mart. I’ve heard stories that ivermectin is being seized at US customs- anyone have any info on that?
