Pharmacy Magazine, ivermectin article

https://www.pharmacymagazine.co.uk/ivermectin-for-covid-19-a-cheap-drug-with-a-remarkable-effect

Introduced in 1981

Antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties

Some 4 billion doses have been taken over the past 40 years

Good safety record with minimal toxic effects

WHO Model List of Essential Medicines as a 3mg tablet

Countries now including ivermectin in their Covid-19 management strategies

Greece, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Slovakia, Czech Republic

Front Line Covid-19 Critical Care (FLCCC) Alliance

Called for the rapid introduction of ivermectin to stem the tide of infections

Prophylactic treatment can be given with two doses of 0.2mg/kg, 48 hours apart, once a month.

For early out-patient treatment, a daily dose of 0.2mg/kg for a maximum of five days is recommended

In the UK, the best way forward would be for the MHRA to authorise use of ivermectin for prophylaxis and treatment of Covid-19 on the basis of the published evidence to date.

Next, the drug could be made available through community pharmacies either using a PGD or by making ivermectin a P medicine

Ivermectin would then help to save lives and reduce suffering until the majority of the population can be vaccinated

Failure to use a cheap, safe drug that reduces the severity and duration of infection as well as the risks of death and transmission seems incomprehensible

Facebook, Partly false information

Ivermectin isn’t a highly effective drug for treating COVID-19
