Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) has shown to be very effective as a defense against Covid-19 when given at the right time and at the right dose. Frontline doctors have reported great sucess when using a combination of HCQ, Zinc and Zithromax early in disease progression or as a profilactic. This combination must be prescribed at the onset of symptoms and is not as effective once a patient requires hospitalization/intubation. For profilacsis use, only a small doseage of 200 mg /2 times per week is required which poses little to no danger to the patient.  

HCQ has been proven safe when prescribed by a doctor and has been safely used for decades by millions of patients.  Some countries, where malaria is prevelent, actually sell HCQ over the counter just as we buy tylenol here in the U.S. 

Studies ran on HCQ were not performed in the same manner as  physicians who are finding success with this protocol.  Again, this protocol is not successful once a patient is seriously ill and that is the only way double blind placebo studies on HCQ have been done. Also, large doses of 400 mg 4 times a day were used in these studies which can be seen as over medicating the patient, in light of that, of course you will begin to see complications. Due to the irresponsible decisions on timing and dosage of HCQ in these studies, it is unfounded for this drug to be listed as dangerous by the FDA sighting risks to heart, liver and kidney.   

People are dying. People are dying in the hospitals, just under 20% of patients survive post ventilation. That means the people in charge of these decision have let 153,757 Americans die as of today 08/03/2020 because of a concern this drug may harm people, a concern that is almost non existant when HCQ is given at the low dose of 200 mg/ 2x week. FDAs recommendations on this drug are irresponsible at best and the governers who have banned this drug in thier states sighting the FDA reccommendations are responsible for 153,757 deaths of the american people!

We the people demand this drug be made universally available and they FDA retract thier previous statement regarding HCQ and publish a new standard of guidelines. FDA and government should not be allowed to come between a physician and his patient. They should not be allowed to dictate to a trained physician what they can and cannot prescribe. Governers should not be allowed to ban the prescription of this drug for Covid -19 use, they have no medical background or expertise in this area.  This CAN help save lives, front line doctors have proven this over and over. 

This needs to stop now! Hydroxychloroquine has been an FDA approved drug for decades. Our doctors need to be permitted to prescribe it when they believe it would be medically beneficial to their patient in the treatment and prevention of Covid-19.
