    Video link:Doctors urge FDA to consider hydroxychloroquine as OTC option

    Just like it is all over the world. Doctor says it works.
    Fauci would not agree! Suppress this drug, hunker down locked in at home and wait for the promised vaccine.

    Could you have ever imagined a drug becoming politicized in such a way?
    The response is further proof of TDS. Make me think the country is infested with demons, who are controlling people's emotions.

    yes, awful, it was though worse before the flood of Noah, got a little better after, then got worse again, Jesus promised us His returning will be like the time of Noah, when the flood washed away all the wicked with a sudden destruction.

    Genesis 5:29 And he called his name Noah, saying, “This one will comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord has cursed.”

    Afterwards God promised the harvest will come in everyyear until the end and He said would never again curse the ground.
    But, God says man is evil from his youth. The heart of unredeemed, unrepentant man has been proven evil countless times throughout history.

    Then the Lord said in His heart, “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done.
    22 “While the earth remains,
    Seedtime and harvest,
    Cold and heat,
    Winter and summer,
    And day and night
    Shall not cease.”

    I think that HCQ should be OTC.

    Bad idea to make it OTC. Getting the truth out about its effectiveness is good idea. Promoting its use with doctors and hospitals would be good idea.

    peace to you

    Curious. Why not OTC?

    If Aspirin was recently discovered, they would make it a prescription only drug.
    HydroxyChloroquine is available for cash buyers OTC in most of the world.
    Some people will go to another country to get medical drugs cheaper and no doctor bills.
    My thinking is the medical establishment wants their consult fees.

    Even worse, the Democrat governors withheld the medicine from people deliberately in a scheme to allow the death toll to rise.

    Safer than Aspirin, Tylenol and Advil. Ridiculous how this drug is being suppressed.

    It’s a very strong drug, though safe when used as directed under Dr. supervision. OTC would lead to misuse, imo.

    peace to you

    Does OTC availability lead to misuse of other drugs, Tylenol, Motrin, Aspirin, which are more dangerous?

    Don’t know that they are more dangerous if misused.

    The hydrox- drug is mainly a malaria drug, if I understand it. To use it for some purpose not tested, under doctor supervision, is a big step, which I support based on limited reports of effectiveness.

    It’s a much bigger step to allow OTC which leads to self diagnosis and treatment for anything a person hears it might help them with.

    OTC is a bad idea at this point.

    peace to you

    Do you know the effects of misuse of the hydroxi drug? Please share and compare to the misuse of the OTC drugs you mentioned. Then I will know. Thanks

    peace to you

    Can people with heart conditions take Tylenol and aspirin safely? Can people with heart conditions take hydroxychloroquine safely?

    Asking for a friend.

    There are a lot of heart conditions. He should ask his personal doctor. If you are worried about possible drug interactions, consult a pharmacist - it is cheaper and easier. Your friend can probably make it to his pharmacist - even on Sunday.

    Yes. I've listened to several experts who have been prescribing HCQ for decades. They laugh at this charge. Said they've never encountered in a single case.

    Unfortunately, you refuse to listen to any news outlets that speak the truth. TGP often features this information, but we know you'll never go there. Laura Ingraham also features HCQ experts often. None of them understand this silly charge you're making.

    Oh, you know what, my bad. I incorrectly read "ask a friend" and took as sarcasm. Thanks for clearing that up and not ripping me for it. Probably deserved it.

    Certain heart conditions require medications that preclude the use of aspirin, or additional aspirin if being prescribed, because aspirin acts as a blood thinner. Your friend should consult not just a pharmacist but a doctor before taking any aspirin.
