Oklahoma Physicians Are Not Prohibited From Prescribing Off-Label Medicines to Fight COVID-19



Souce



The Attorney General’s office finds no legal basis for a state medical licensure board to discipline a licensed physician for exercising sound judgement and safely prescribing an FDA-approved drug – like ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine – for the off-label purpose of treating a patient with COVID-19 Attorney General John O’Connor I stand behind doctors who believe it is in their patients’ best interests to receive ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine Our healthcare professionals should have every tool available to combat COVID-19. Public safety demands this. Physicians who prescribe medications and follow the law should not fear disciplinary action for prescribing such drugs The Attorney General’s office neither condones nor condemns a specific course of treatment for COVID-19. Our office maintains that proper healthcare decisions are to be made between a patient and his or her physician, and the government should not interfere with their relationship. FDA position unchanged
