Surprising symptoms, in-home isolation and experimental drugs – Amy Herzog has had a whirlwind of a month.

She was plagued with concerns about the health and well-being of her family, including wondering if they would get sick. Other thoughts swirling in her mind, Herzog said, were how she would homeschool her children, how she was going to be able to make sure her house was sanitized and concerns about if she would go into respiratory distress or have to be hospitalized.

When Herzog called her doctor to let him know the diagnosis, he called in a prescription for Plaquenil, also known as Hydroxychloroquine.

“I was advised on the side effects and how to take it,” she said. “Being a nurse, I had read about this drug and knew it was being tried on coronavirus patients with success.”

The medication is an immunosuppressant anti-parasite drug used to treat malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

“It’s a drug that’s been around for a long time, so it’s not an investigational drug,” she said. “Since there is little known about covid I figured I had to at least give this medication a try … I’m nervous to take any medication and don’t typically take antibiotics unless I really need them, but I knew there wasn’t anything else I could take, so I figured why not.”

A Judge Stands up to a Hospital: “Step Aside” and Give a Dying Man Ivermectin

The judge’s finest moment may have been when he dashed the most glaring myth about ivermectin—that it is not safe, despite decades of use that shows otherwise. Noting that all drugs have side effects, Judge Fullerton listed ivermectin’s effects from a government website.
“(N)umber one, generally well tolerated; number two, dizziness; number three, pruritus; number four, nausea/diarrhea. These are the side effects for the dosage that’s being asked to be administered,” he said. “The risks of these side effects are so minimal that Mr. Ng’s current situation outweighs that risk by one-hundredfold.”
