The link brings you to the web site. By entering the a medication and disease in the search menu you can find study results. Since there are a large number of people on DR peddling scientific misinformation regarding ivermectin, let's look at a study. now that we have a list of studies on Ivermectin and Covid, let's look at the first one What did that study conclude??? PATIENTS WITH MILD-TO-MODERATE COVID-19 INFECTION TREATED WITH IVERMECTIN PLUS DOXYCYCLINE RECOVERED EARLIER, WERE LESS LIKELTY TO PROGRESS TO MORE SERIOUS DISEASE, AND WERE MORE LIKELY TO BE COVDI-19 NEGATIVE BY RT-PCR ON DAY 14.

How does the usual DR know-it-all tell the difference between one greedy government teat sucking scientist from another scientist they insist is trustworthy - - all from one glance at a URL?

Seems awful convenient

AGAIN, it's stupid for people to self medicate with animal grade medications but if a physician prescribes Ivermectin as part of a drug regimen for the treatment of covid, anyone refusing to take it is letting partisan politics cloud their judgement. They are acting in an unscientific way, just like those taking animal medications.

No Doctor should be prescribing Ivermectin to treat COVID with the exception of those in a clinical trial.
Refusing an unproven drug isn't partisan.
It's intelligent. It's being responsible.

"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.

...Ivermectin has not been shown to be safe or effective for these indications."

So where did you get your medical degree?

Seriously, you must have one if you are telling me to trust one study rather than another set of studies or to tell me you can promise this study was properly done and is accurate.

The study you cite had only 400 participants and failed to account for a huge number of factors.

Here is the more recent study using nearly 3000 participants and finding Ivermectin doesn't help.

Even the meta analysis papers I've read have listed benefits of ivermectin as low or moderate certainty data.
