FDA Settles Ivermectin Case, Agrees To Remove Controversial 'Stop It' Post

• https://www.zerohedge.com, by Zachary Steiber

The FDA has already removed a page that said: "Should I take ivermectin to prevent or treat COVID-19? No."

Within 21 days, the FDA will remove another page titled, "why you should not use ivermectin to treat or prevent COVID-19," according to the settlement announcement, which was filed with federal court in southern Texas.

"The FDA has not authorized or approved ivermectin for use in preventing or treating COVID-19 in humans or animals," the page currently states. It also says that data do not show ivermectin is effective against COVID-19, despite how some studies it cites show ivermectin is effective against the illness.

The FDA in the settlement is also agreeing to delete multiple social media posts that came out strongly against ivermectin, including one that stated: "You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y'all. Stop it."

In exchange, doctors who sued the agency are dismissing their claims, the filing states.

"FDA loses its war on ivermectin and agrees to remove all social media posts and consumer directives regarding ivermectin and COVID, including its most popular tweet in FDA history," Dr. Mary Talley Bowden, one of the doctors, said in a statement. "This landmark case sets an important precedent in limiting FDA overreach into the doctor-patient relationship."

"We are extremely pleased with the outcome of the settlement as it is a victory for every doctor and patient in the United States," added Dr. Paul Marik, chief scientific officer of the FLCCC Alliance and another plaintiff. "The FDA interfered in the practice of medicine with their irresponsible language and posts about ivermectin. We will never know how many lives were affected because patients were denied access to a lifesaving treatment because their doctor was 'just following the FDA.'"

An FDA spokesperson told The Epoch Times in an email that the agency "has chosen to resolve this lawsuit rather than continuing to litigate over statements that are between two and nearly four years old."
