  1. Wait, doctors are prescribing this?

    Insurance companies should state that if someone gets seriously ill or dies from taking this the prescribing doctor will not be covered by their insurance if they get sued. That should put the brakes on it.

  2. They do make it for humans, in a pill, not a “horse paste”. The pic chosen for the article is deliberately misleading. No doctors would prescribe the horse version to a human, because they can’t, because it’s for horses.

  3. I read an article where a feed shop/vet pharmacy owner had a sign up saying she wouldn’t sell ivermectin without a vet rx and pic of them w their horse showing that it was for their horse. The guy snapped that he had already been taking it and his “only side effect is I can’t see in the morning.” 😳

  4. Here’s a little more info on why people thought it might be useful:

    It’s sort of like hydroxychloroquine where initially there was some small studies that showed it *might* be useful but it didn’t pan out plus there were side effects.

    edit: here’s the original study that said it might be useful https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32251768/

    edit2: hmmm this meta-analysis seems to suggest quite a few studies show ivermectin does indeed reduce risk of dying from covid https://journals.lww.com/americantherapeutics/fulltext/2021/08000/ivermectin_for_prevention_and_treatment_of.7.aspx

    edit3: Dr’s appear to be prescribing it like crazy

    >A recent study cited by the CDC found that ivermectin dispensing from outpatient retail pharmacies in the U.S. increased from an average of 3,600 prescriptions per week at the pre-pandemic baseline to a peak of 39,000 prescriptions in the week ending Jan. 8, 2021.

    >Then, since early July, outpatient ivermectin dispensing was on the rise again, rapidly increasing to more than 88,000 prescriptions in the week ending Aug. 13. According to the CDC, this represents a 24-fold increase. This growing interest in ivermectin to treat humans with COVID-19 has led to an increase in calls to poison control reporting overdoses and adverse effects.

  5. I think the russian disinformation farms must be pushing the horse paste through facebook chain letters, and of course the boomer MAGAheads are Fwd:fwd:fwd’ing it all over and actually believing it. “Hey Boris, look what I make stupid American do, ha ha!”

  6. What the hell kind of logic failures does it take you to think heart deworming medication is going to help a disease like Covid. Even a basic understanding of this disease should make you go, yeah that’s a stupid fucking idea.

  7. A family member, whom I love very much, posted yesterday on social media that they are taking ivermectin to to fight their current COVID infection. In fact, they’ve been taking it for a YEAR now. A fucking YEAR. They don’t believe COVID is that dangerous, don’t trust the vaccines, but trust fucking ivermectin? I knew they were a lost cause but this is bad.

  8. Who ever said it worked? Is there any research at all? I’m just… so confused why people would take this.

    The fisttank cleaner I kinda got. Not so smart people see a president say its good and you believe it. But this stuff just spawned in a facebook group as far as I can tell…
