What’s behind Iowa doctor’s push to license alternative COVID drugs?

An Iowa doctor is seeking a court order requiring pharmacies to fill the prescription drugs hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin to treat COVID-19.

Dr. David Hartsuch, an emergency physician in Bettendorf, is seeking the order as part of a civil lawsuit against the Iowa Board of Medicine and the Iowa Board of Pharmacy in Scott County District Court.

Hartsuch, a former Republican state senator, accused two licensing boards of trying to prevent patients from receiving certain legal prescription drugs. His lawsuit addresses ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19.
