Ivermectin Being Withheld In Wilmington From ICU Patient

Ivermectin Being Withheld In Wilmington From ICU PatientThis was just sent to us with a request to pass it on. There is absolutely no reason to withhold ivermectin from someone suffering from Covid-19. And why wouldn’t “right-to-try” apply, especially if the patient has a prescription?

Wilmington Hospital won’t let David Demarco take one of these pills for just five days we are told.

My husband David DeMarco is a passionate 54-year-old man who was healthy and strong before contracting COVID. He is an accomplished video editor and has won four Emmy awards for his broadcast television work as well as awards for a feature-length documentary. He loves life and people! But today he is fighting for his life in the ICU at Wilmington Hospital (Delaware).

The care team has been compassionate and is doing everything in their power to help David and we sincerely thank them for their hard work and sacrifice in this terrible fight. But we are asking for one simple thing that they will not provide, and that is the ability to give him a medication that we believe will save his life: Ivermectin.

I am holding in my hand a legitimate prescription from a compounding pharmacy for Ivermectin/Vitamin D321 mg/5000U, in David’s name, and I just want to be able to give it to him. We have a right to try this medication since David is in dire need and suffering from a life-threatening disease!

  1. From the FDA website: https://www.fda.gov/patients/learn-about-expanded-access-and-other-treatment-options/understanding-unapproved-use-approved-drugs-label

    Why might an approved drug be used for an unapproved use?
    From the FDA perspective, once the FDA approves a drug, healthcare providers generally may prescribe the drug for an unapproved use when they judge that it is medically appropriate for their patient.
    You may be asking yourself why your healthcare provider would want to prescribe a drug to treat a disease or medical condition that the drug is not approved for. One reason is that there might not be an approved drug to treat your disease or medical condition. Another is that you may have tried all approved treatments without seeing any benefits. In situations like these, you and your healthcare provider may talk about using an approved drug for an unapproved use to treat your disease or medical condition.

  2. This is sad. How are we supposed to trust any medical facility? If I were able to get the Ivermectin or other drug that has been shown to combat COVID, I would either take it without the permission of the hospital or sign myself out. I don’t know what the choices are for this man. Or if he is able to do either of those, but I definitely would try to work it out one way or the other.
