    Lawsuit drops bombshell on FDA’s Orwellian lie about Ivermectin.

    Court Revives Doctors' Lawsuit Saying FDA Overstepped Its Authority With Anti-Ivermectin Campaign HERE!

    A federal appeals court in New Orleans has revived a lawsuit by three doctors who say the Food and Drug Administration overstepped its authority in a campaign against the use of a drug that is not approved to treat COVID-19.

    The agency did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

    Friday's ruling from a panel of three judges on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal in New Orleans focused on various aspects of an FDA campaign against ivermectin as a COVID-19 treatment.

    The ruling acknowledged FDA's receiving reports of some people requiring hospitalization after self-medicating with ivermectin intended for livestock. But the ruling said the campaign — which at times featured the slogan “You are not a horse!” — too often left out that the drug is sometimes prescribed for humans.

    “FDA is not a physician."

    "It has authority to inform, announce, and apprise—but not to endorse, denounce, or advise,” Judge Don Willett wrote for a panel that also included Jennifer Walker Elrod and Edith Brown Clement. “The Doctors have plausibly alleged that FDA’s Posts fell on the wrong side of the line between telling about and telling to.”

    Drs. Robert L. Apter, Mary Talley Bowden and Paul E. Marik filed the lawsuit last year. All three said their reputations were harmed by the FDA campaign. Bowden lost admitting privileges at a Texas hospital, the ruling noted. Marik alleged he lost his positions at a medical school and at a hospital for promoting the use of ivermectin.

    'Blood on its hands': FDA loses battle against ivermectin, agrees to remove COVID-related anti-drug social media posts

    After losing its battle against ivermectin, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has agreed to remove webpages and its social media posts urging people to avoid the usage of drug for COVID-19 treatment.

    The FDA has already taken down a page that stated: “Should I take ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19? No.”

    It will also delete posts, including one that reads: “You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it.”

    According to a settlement agreement filed with federal court in Southern Texas, the FDA will also remove another page titled – "Why you should not use ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID-19” within 21 days."

    FDA faces ire from proponents of ivermectin

    Ivermectin has long been approved for uses in both animals and humans. In cases of humans, the drug is recommended to treat parasitic infections such as river blindness disease, thread worm infestation, tropical eosinophilia, round worm infestation, whipworm infestation, filariasis (also called elephantiasis), and loiasis.


    Ivermectin is not an exceptional case. The FDA is biased against many low-cost, generic, and/or natural therapies with low profit potential. Could it be because half its funding comes from Big Pharma?

    I have complained about this from day one!

    The FDA does have the authority to approve/disapprove, a drug for human consumption that is where it ends.

    The FDA does not have the authority of prescription yet their negative comments about Ivermectin prevented the world from using a drug (through fear of suit) that doctors were using with excellent success and treatment was literally as cheap as a bottle of aspirin with up to 67% efficacy.

    In the FDA, CDC, NIH WE TRUST!

    NOT!

    From what I've read it only causes problems if the dose is too high. And it when the dose is too low, it seems to be ineffective. It seems to be safe and effective when the dosage is right.

    FDA Concedes on Ivermectin, But Deeper Concerns Persist

    (excerpts)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ivermectin has different formulations for humans and animals, and the dosage for animals is significantly higher. People should be cautious and avoid mistakenly taking large doses of ivermectin, as it may cause unnecessary harm.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A recent pre-proof study of ivermectin published in the Journal of Infection had at least two critical problems with the study design: Firstly, the recruited patients were at a relatively later stage—two weeks from the onset of symptoms. Secondly, ivermectin was used only once per day for three days, which is much lower than recommended by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance, whose guidelines are based on the experience of many critical care doctors using ivermectin off-label to treat COVID-19 patients.
