New Hampshire House Votes-Ivermectin for OTC Purchase Now Onto Senate


The New Hampshire House on Wednesday passed a bill allowing the state’s pharmacists to dispense ivermectin over the counter, without a prescription.

HB 1022 also prevents New Hampshire medical licensing boards from disciplining doctors for prescribing the drug.

The bill, which passed by a 183-159 vote, now moves to the Senate.

Representative Leah Cushman (R-Weare) provided the following statement to The Defender:

“HB1022 permits ivermectin to be dispensed by a pharmacist via a standing order, effectively making it available over the counter. The evidence is growing regarding ivermectin’s effectiveness in reducing severity and duration of COVID-19. When people want access to ivermectin because they or their loved ones are ill, they will get it by any means they can.

“Since many doctors are afraid to prescribe anything off-label for the treatment of COVID-19, patients have turned to foreign pharmacies, buying it on the black market, or buying ivermectin formulated for animals. We need to pass this bill to expand access to pharmacy-grade ivermectin for the people of New Hampshire.”

Dr. Meryl Nass, a Maine physician and member of the Children’s Health Defense (CHD) Scientific Advisory board, praised New Hampshire lawmakers for passing the bill. She told The Defender:

“Yesterday, legislators in the New Hampshire House did something amazing for COVID patients … In order to save their lives using a safe and effective drug, New Hampshire residents will be able to buy human ivermectin from drug stores without a prescription.”

If the bill passes the Senate, patients will “no longer need to dread developing COVID with littleprospect of early treatment,” Nass said.

She added:

“CHD still advises that it is always preferable to get care from a medical professional, whenever possible. But when it isn’t, being able to self treat should make a huge dent on COVID mortality and morbidity.”
