Ivermectin overdose death probed in NM: “I don’t want more people to die”

A second person is in intensive care, a health official with the state says.


...In a press briefing Thursday, New Mexico Human Services Secretary Dr. David Scrase said he took a "calculated risk" in announcing the suspected overdose death "without firm documentation" that ivermectin was to blame. An investigation into the cause of death could take weeks, he said.

But word that ivermectin was the cause of the death was "reliable," Dr. Scrase said. "I don't want more people to die of an ivermectin overdose in the next four weeks while we're gathering data."

"I'd just like people to know that—if there are people out there taking it—it can kill them," he added.

...the drug comes with serious side effects, such as severe skin rashes that can require hospitalization, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, facial or limb swelling, neurologic adverse events (dizziness, seizures, confusion), sudden drops in blood pressure, and liver injury, according to the FDA.

The latest from my anti vaxer friends is that CNN is wrongly using comparison of the veterinary Ivermectin, when they should be looking at the "human" version of Ivermectin...which is the exact same drug prescribed for the same exact reasons.

They will never be convinced.

it's weird to admit that I have anti-vaxer friends...

Well, that's great, except the veterinary version is what people are self-dosing with.

It's weird that all my life, everyone in the world made fun of the old-timey snake oil salesman and wondered how people could be so stupid as to buy what he was selling.

We were told that before modern medicine, people would be desperate for cures and that made them susceptible to chicanery. What will the excuse in the future be?

Every hospital/Er/urgent care around here has big signs out saying they don't perscibe it. Used to be only dilauded (powerful opiate) they did that for.

Except for some compounding or packaging, most veterinary medications are just the same as that sold for human usage.

Like those old-timey folk, the cult is only interested in the a cure, understanding a thing causes headaches, something that the good reverend has already figured out so you can rest easy knowing he/she/it has taken that ache for you.

Of course it's photo-shopped, who said it wasn't? It would make a really great adjunct to a billboard campaign in rural TeJas, would it not?

Yeah, I took it as Photoshopped. I still think it's got some punch.

Yes, put that on a billboard near the state capitol. (DOT regs state common carriers cannot have political endorsement signs on their vehicles.)

That's the kind of image that I wish would be filtered to resemble artwork. Because it does make a good statement, but in its current form I feel the main point is to dupe us.

I've got a Fb "friend" who posts all kinds of antivaxxer nonsense, trying to use "science" to justify her views.

Just some examples of some stuff she just posted recently:

[journals.lww.com]
[journals.lww.com]
[www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

I only looked at the last one because it has an nih.gov link (which doesn't mean it's actually an NIH study). It has nothing to do with Covid-19 and just talks about historical use of ivermectin.

I posted that one because it's sometimes getting used by the antivaxxers as the basis for the newer ones (the first two links I posted).

2 people and that's news worthy? Think about how many people have no chance of being infected by intestinal worms now. Look on the positive side

LOL! I can see the Fox News ticker now: "National intestinal worm infestation pandemic narrowly averted!"
