TGA warns doctors over ivermectin script surge

A fringe group called the Covid Medical Network is continuing to promote the drug as a treatment for COVID-19

The TGA is issuing fresh warnings to doctors prescribing ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19 following a surge in scripts.

In July, a Cochrane review found there was no evidence to support the drug’s efficacy or safety for treating or preventing SARS-CoV-2 infection, concluding the evidence base was made up of small studies, few of which were high quality.
