I once asked a doctor friend how and if AMA recommendations are enforced. He explained that if a doctor prescribes a drug or treatment contrary to the advice of the AMA and the patient dies or has some adverse outcome as a result of the doctor's prescription, or because the doctor neglected to prescribe AMA approved medication or treatment causing the patient harm, that doctor is wide open to a malpractice lawsuit or even possible criminal prosecution.


AMA, APhA, ASHP statement on ending use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19
WASHINGTON, DC – The American Medical Association (AMA), American Pharmacists Association (APhA), and American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) strongly oppose the ordering, prescribing, or dispensing of ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19 outside of a clinical trial.

Ivermectin is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for human use to treat infections caused by internal and external parasites. It is not approved to prevent or treat COVID-19. Ivermectin is also available to treat certain veterinary conditions; medications formulated or intended for use in animals should not be used by humans. We are alarmed by reports that outpatient prescribing for and dispensing of ivermectin have increased 24-fold since before the pandemic and increased exponentially over the past few months. As such, we are calling for an immediate end to the prescribing, dispensing, and use of ivermectin for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 outside of a clinical trial. In addition, we are urging physicians, pharmacists, and other prescribers—trusted health care professionals in their communities—to warn patients against the use of ivermectin outside of FDA-approved indications and guidance, whether intended for use in humans or animals, as well as purchasing ivermectin from online stores. Veterinary forms of this medication are highly concentrated for large animals and pose a significant toxicity risk for humans.

    Ponderer,
    I remember Joe Rogan as a secondary character on the late Phil Hartman's "News Radio". I hadn't seen or heard of Rogan for about twenty years after that show ended. Then seemingly suddenly he has his own rightwing radio show.

    It's funny how conservatives will bitch and moan about Hollywood and the supposed harm Hollywood does to our moral fabric. But whenever even a minor Hollywood celebrity espouses conservative views they are enthralled. That includes the has-beens and never-weres from Reagan to Rogan.

    Thinking of changing my first name to 'Dr.' and selling herbal Covid "remedies" to red-hat dupes. There's TONS of coastal sage growing around here. See: The crystal droplets of the sea fog purifies the sage. The motion of the tide sways through it, mimicking the function of the lungs. The sage is infused with pure oxygen and natural sea salt, which acts as a powerful disinfectant. Also, there's an eagle carrying a flag on the jar! And it comes with a tiny copy of the New Testament and a pocket Constitution!! 😃🇺🇲

    Based on what I'm hearing among the rightwing, Rogan isn't considered rightwing by the rightwing.

    Every rightwinger I know of, likes Rogan, not because he is rightwing but because he resists the values of the progressive SwampMedia.
