The US FDA is back and uses their usual antics to smear Ivermectin and compare people taking the medication to horses.
“Hold your horses, y’all. Ivermectin may be trending, but it still isn’t authorized or approved to treat COVID-19,” the agency tweeted.

The FDA reported:
COVID-19. We’ve been living with it for what sometimes seems like forever. Given the number of deaths that have occurred from the disease, it’s perhaps not surprising that some consumers are turning to drugs not approved or authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
One of the FDA’s jobs is to carefully evaluate the scientific data on a drug to be sure that it is both safe and effective for a particular use. In some instances, it can be highly dangerous to use a medicine for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 that has not been approved by or has not received emergency use authorization from the FDA.
There seems to be a growing interest in a drug called ivermectin for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in humans. Certain animal formulations of ivermectin such as pour-on, injectable, paste, and “drench,” are approved in the U.S. to treat or prevent parasites in animals. For humans, ivermectin tablets are approved at very specific doses to treat some parasitic worms, and there are topical (on the skin) formulations for head lice and skin conditions like rosacea.
However, the FDA has received multiple reports of patients who have required medical attention, including hospitalization, after self-medicating with ivermectin intended for livestock.
Here’s What You Need to Know about Ivermectin
- The FDA has not authorized or approved ivermectin for use in preventing or treating COVID-19 in humans or animals. Ivermectin is approved for human use to treat infections caused by some parasitic worms and head lice and skin conditions like rosacea.
- Currently available data do not show ivermectin is effective against COVID-19. Clinical trials assessing ivermectin tablets for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in people are ongoing.
- Taking large doses of ivermectin is dangerous.
- If your health care provider writes you an ivermectin prescription, fill it through a legitimate source such as a pharmacy, and take it exactly as prescribed.
- Never use medications intended for animals on yourself or other people. Animal ivermectin products are very different from those approved for humans. Use of animal ivermectin for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19 in humans is dangerous.
Twitter users criticized the FDA for the terrible campaign.

We don’t need your approval. “Y’all” acknowledge a role for off label prescribing of safe medications & encourage it. Doctors are trained to treat individuals, not follow algorithms. Let doctors be doctors. We will inform pts & get consent @Covid19Critical @P_McCulloughMD https://t.co/zNe1cPg0Fl

Still with the horse imagery. It is LITERALLY A MEDICATION FOR HUMANS. This alone disqualifies the FDA. It's part of their mission to destroy trust in medicine – it has to be. https://t.co/Syc1lPHlSG

Ivmmeta.com reported: ‘’Ivermectin reduces the risk for COVID-19 with very high confidence for mortality, ventilation, ICU admission, hospitalization, progression, recovery, case, viral clearance, and in the pooled analysis.
We show traditional outcome-specific analyses and combined evidence from all studies, incorporating treatment delay, a primary confounding factor in COVID-19 studies. Real-time updates and corrections, transparent analysis with all results in the same format, consistent protocol for 40 treatments.’’
The legislation moved to the NH State Senate.
We will share new updates when available.

HB 1022 has passed the House, 183-159! This bill would allow Ivermectin to be dispensed by pharmacists by standing order by a licensed health care provider. It will now head over to the Senate. #NHPolitics https://t.co/60i93l6Yhp

You will hear the truth about Ivermectin, only facts!
Two separate doctors claim that more than 100 Congress members were treated with Ivermectin. Someone sent this to me, where it is explained what this medicament really is. The source would remain anonymous.
Take a look at the video on Rumble:
We aren’t doctors, and we won’t share with you medical advice. I am a reporter, reporting what other people stated.
Now, we’re going to share with you one video of a woman who documented her C-19 journey and treatment with Ivermectin. It wasn’t very long because she recovered very fast.
Take a look at the video below:
We don’t want the MSM to share more misinformation about C-19 and Ivermectin. We will share the results of the research that MSM doesn’t want to release.
You have to know that MSM shares lines. They share that Ivermectin is for animal/ horses use only.
Politifact tried to say that the actual statement is a little bit fake.
This post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Facebook.)
It is true that ivermectin was approved by the Food and Drug Administration that year — but not to treat the coronavirus. The drug was approved for strongyloidiasis, a disease caused by a roundworm, and onchocerciasis, or river blindness, which is caused by a parasitic worm.
The drug was approved for humans under the brand name Stromectol, National Geographic reported, and since then it’s been recognized as a safe treatment for several tropical diseases caused by parasites. In 2015, two scientists even won a Nobel Prize for their discovery of ivermectin and its use to treat diseases caused by parasites.
But unlike, say, river blindness, COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus, not by parasites. And as PolitiFact recently reported in a story exploring ivermectin, there’s no conclusive evidence that ivermectin is effective against COVID-19.
Sharing lies is what makes me angry! If you give me one year, I will share all the twists and turns that the MSM takes to transform the truth into a lie!
WIV Channel 4 News reported:
After a recent resurgence in several states, health officials are warning residents to be aware of a dangerous of an unauthorized “treatment” for COVID-19 — often being taken with dangerous consequences.
It’s called ivermectin and it’s used to treat and prevent parasites in animals, the Food and Drug Administration explains. The tablets are not FDA approved for treatment of COVID-19 in humans and isn’t even an anti-viral drug — meaning it has no impact on the coronavirus. And because the large-concentration tablets are intended for large animals, these can be treacherous for humans.
In addition to not being authorized for treatment, there’s no evidence ivermectin treats COVID-19.
“There’s a lot of misinformation around, and you may have heard that it’s okay to take large doses of ivermectin. That is wrong.”
The FDA and several state officials say they’ve seen an uptick in calamitous use of the drugs, particularly tablets used to treat parasitic worms in horses. While ivermectin is approved for humans to treat certain skin conditions (rosacea) and certain external parasites like head lice, the FDA warns this ivermectin is different than the one used in animals.
On Friday, the Mississippi Department of Health was forced to send out a warning to residents about the dangers of the drug after several poisonings.
The Mississippi Poison Control Center said at least 70% of recent ivermectin-related calls are tied to people taking livestock or animal formulations they bought a livestock supply stores or through online markets.
Eighty-five percent of callers had mild symptoms — these include rash, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain — but one person needed evaluation because of how much they’d taken.
More severe dangers of ivermectin ingestion include neurologic disorders, seizures, coma and death.
Use of ivermectin should only be taken if prescribed by a doctor for an FDA-approved use. Regardless of the usage and prescription, the FDA warns ivermectin overdose is still possible. Possible interaction with other medications is also a possibility.
There’s a 70% surge in Ivermectin poison Center calls sounds, and that’s a lot!
NPR reported a 145% surge. It’s just too much!
According to the National Poison Data System (NPDS), which collects information from the nation’s 55 poison control centers, there was a 245% jump in reported exposure cases from July to August — from 133 to 459.
Out of 333 million people, there were 459 calls to poison centers, 0, 00000137%.
85% of the people called had mild symptoms like a rash.
We will continue sharing the truth about this!
Ivermectin was on the list of the best drugs of the WHO.
They lay it out in black and white and even a non-medical person like me can understand it.
Now let’s go down to Section 7.2 of their report which is about Toxicity in Humans:
I’m going to bold the key part:
7.2 Toxicity 7.2.1 Human data 220.127.116.11 Adults Amounts approaching the therapeutic doses in animals (100 to 200 ðg/kg bodyweight) are not hazardous to humans. Ingestions of large quantities (10 to 100 times the animal therapeutic dosage) may produce symptoms resembling those observed in animal toxicology studies at high toxic levels. An adult female accidentally self-injected a small quantity (approximately 200 ðg/kg) subcutaneously. Twelve hours later she experienced colicky pain with nausea but recovered within 12 hours (MSD, 1988). Clinical studies of oral ivermectin given in doses from 2 to 200 ðg/kg (maximum 12 mg) have shown a pattern of adverse experiences that included only one serious event (transient stupor). The remaining adverse experiences were considered not serious and were chiefly of the type expected based on the characteristics of the underlying disease and the responses seen after treatment with other microfilaricidal drugs, except for reports of "depression" (not psychiatrically tested) in four patients in open studies (MSD, 1988). 18.104.22.168 Children A 16-month-old boy weighing 15 kg ingested approximately 100 to 130 mg of ivermectin (as an injectable solution). Ten hours post-ingestion he had mydriasis in one pupil, with frequent vomiting, pallor, 35°C temperature, tachycardia, somnolence and variable blood pressure. He developed urticaria the following day, and had recovered after three days (MSD, 1988).
