COMMENT: Dear Mr. Armstrong,
As you know I’m a long time subscriber and prominent US physician. I am also a vigorous advocate of early treatment of COVID-19. You are spot on but there is more.
I have treated hundreds of patients with Covid-19. Starting yesterday nearly every pharmacy has blocked myself and others form prescribing ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine for Covid-19. They are saying the CDC is preventing them.
What happen to the well codified off label use in the US. What happened to right to try. It’s gone. And our professional leadership are in lock step. Sickening.
REPLY: As I have said, I had a respiratory issue and was tested 5 times for COVID all negative. I ended up going to a specialist at Tamp Hospital in charge of pulmonary. He told me the tests were invalid. He also said the ONLY thing they had to treat COVID patients was hydroxychloroquine. Two doctors said they believed I had COVID despite the fact all the testing was NEGATIVE. So I personally have no idea.
