LARA instruction clarifies the intent of Michigan to keep its citizens SICK
This is not a drill.
In the email inbox today is an instruction to physicians to REPORT any use outside of the ‘normal’ (accepted use) of hydroxychloroquine or lose their licenses. The following is the exact text: and available on their FB page as well
Dear Licensed Prescribers and Dispensers:
The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs has received multiple allegations of Michigan physicians inappropriately prescribing hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine to themselves, family, friends, and/or coworkers without a legitimate medical purpose.
Prescribing hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine without further proof of efficacy for treating COVID-19 or with the intent to stockpile the drug may create a shortage for patients with lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or other ailments for which chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are proven treatments. Reports of this conduct will be evaluated and may be further investigated for administrative action. Prescribing any kind of prescription must also be associated with medical documentation showing proof of the medical necessity and medical condition for which the patient is being treated. Again, these are drugs that have not been proven scientifically or medically to treat COVID-19.
Michigan pharmacists may see an increased volume of prescriptions for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine and should take special care to evaluate the prescriptions’ legitimacy. Pursuant to Michigan Administrative Code, R 338.490(2), a pharmacist shall not fill a prescription if the pharmacist believes the prescription will be used for other than legitimate medical purposes or if the prescription could cause harm to a patient.
It is also important to be mindful that licensed health professionals are required to report inappropriate prescribing practices. LARA appreciates all licensed health professionals for their service and cooperation in assuring compliance in acting responsibly while continuing to provide the best possible care for Michigan’s citizens during this unprecedented and very challenging time.

Ask yourself, is this at all appropriate, and/or is it an attempt to keep infection levels high?
Shame on our regulatory agencies for interfering with the physicians and their well reasoned efforts to provide relief to those suffering from the Chinese Virus, Covid-19. Is this the way to question the efforts of our caregivers?
F**K you LARA!
Put the pressure on.
"Unintentional consequences" is looking even less "unintended".
Democrats following democrat philosophy.
The end results should be patently obvious.
For weeks now, been watching Malaria prone countries where CQ is given routinely to prevent suffering of Malaria. These areas also have a huge population of G6PD Deficiency, the A- version. The protocol is testing for this deficiency before administering CQ as a preventive. Further, G6PD-D folks are thought to have a natural immunity to Malaria and several other viral infections. This enzyme is the life enzyme and feeds viruses and cancers. There are 140+ versions of this hereditary defect. Some countries have 45% to 50% folks with this hereditary defect. It is actually tested on refugees when receiving their physical examination when entering the country. That means many of our refugees are coming from areas where this deficiency is prevalent. WHO actually rates the G6PD-D in levels, 1-5 with 5 being not deficient.
Been flooding twitter with my observations, seeing low incidence of CHINA-Con in countries where a large group of the population are either on CQ or have G6PD-D and the incidence is relatively low. .Well, imagine when POTUS stated yesterday that COV-19 incidence is low in African countries where CQ is given as a preventative measure against malaria. Was thrilled that someone on the task force was thinking this. Now, if they can start thinking that G6PD-D especially level 1 and 2 are also immune against this virus. My thinking is lowering the level of this G6PD enzyme in a body, stops the feeding of this virus. Since CQ is toxic to G6PD-D, (triggers life-threatening hemolytic anemia) it may well do just that. So two things, BEFORE administering CQ, if possible, check for G6PD deficiency, AND, would G6PD-deficiency blood products (plasma, etc) help produce a cure for this and other viruses as well as CA? Just thinking out loud here.
Isn't that cute.... 'ol double-dipping Deb retired out of the AG's office, conveniently tucked away at LARA and oversees small business loans, is activated by nitWhitmer and Nasty Nessel to prohibit a 70 year old malaria drug that the entire world knows it works to combat the Communist Party of China Virus.
Democrats don't just hate you- they want you dead.
It was unnerving when our state was placed in a illegal form of House Arrest without due process, all for our own good of course, but when I received this email threatening me with legal action against my license if I didn't rat out those who dare to treat sick patients with the latest information, I was hit with flashbacks of WWll history. I think we all looked at Germany and that era and told ourselves that we wouldn't get on the train but here we are, hiding in our homes, hording toilet paper, and trying to figure out how to remove the battery in our cell phones.
Don't get me wrong, social isolation is the competent and educated choice at this time. I pulled my kids out of school weeks before they shut down. Before this is over we will have health care workers making the desperate choice to let one go to save two others. I don't want my family anywhere near someone forced to make that decision.
LARA should be ashamed. They should also remember that it is these same health care professionals, that face this global pandemic every day, that will be deciding which course of treatment is best for them should they end up taking a spin with the Chinese Virus themselves.
Just wanted to share some ideas here: Tonic Water contains quinine, the main ingredient of CQ. DO NOT USE THE DIET version and Faygo and Canadian Dry products researched were the best. Orange Juice has been shown to be helpful. Oregano 1500 MCG a day may also help to keep all viruses at bay. And KnitWhit has clearly exceeded her authority by banning the use of CQ. Her actions have been abominable.
