Doctors Can Prescribe Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine Off-Label for COVID-19
Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson just shared a legal opinion that sounds extremely logical and reasonable for prosperity solutions.

N3ebraska’s AG stated that neither him, nor anyone from his legal office would seek disciplinary action against doctors who prescribe hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin as off-label medicines to treat or prevent COVID-19, as long as they are not engaging in any misconduct.
The opinion was issued on October 14, as an answer to a request from Dannette Smith, CEO of the state’s Department of Health, which licenses and disciplines doctors.
Doug, a Republican, stated that his office finds “the available data does not justify filing disciplinary actions against physicians simply because they prescribe ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine to prevent or treat COVID-19.”
Health care providers, in general, may be subject to discipline if they “neglect to obtain informed consent, deceive their patients, prescribe excessively high doses, fail to check for contraindications, or engage in other misconduct,” wrote Peterson.
The opinion continues, “Allowing physicians to consider these early treatments will free them to evaluate additional tools that could save lives, keep patients out of the hospital, and provide relief for our already strained health care system.”
to sum it up, Peterson’s statement doesn’t mean that he and his legal office are recommending any particular treatment options for COVID-19, but only the off-label early treatment options as raised by the health department “and conclude that the available evidence suggests that they might work for some people.”
