Yeah, my "7" was an exaggeration. Doctors aren't gods, they aren't omniscient, and they can fold under pressure like most people. There are doctors, we've seen speaking on television, who recommended hydrochloroquine. Same for this. And if the patient comes in and demands the stuff, well, given that it doesn't do any harm to humans in normal doses, some of them are likely to give them rather then get into a fight or risk losing a patient.Where's this data coming from, btw? I was trying to figure out how many people are getting prescriptions vs getting the veterinary version, and found stuff like this, where there are like 88,000 prescriptions per week vs 3,600/week prepandemic. Those 7 doctors must be getting hand cramps! Guess there are a fair number of people trying to get the veterinary version, too, but I don't think we can say that the amount of people using the human version is insignificant.
Prescriptions for ivermectin have jumped to more than 88,000 per week, some pharmacists are reporting shortages and people are overdosing on forms of the drug meant for horses.www.nytimes.com
Before California made it straight up legal, certain doctors would write you a scrip for weed if you stubbed your toe, or felt a little stressed in the afternoon, or misplaced a new John Grisham novel while on vacation. Doctors write stupid scrips when there isn't a downside.
Buuuuuuuut... many wouldn't. And then you had idiots writing their own scrips effectively, only using the equine version available in feed stores.
