New Hampshire bill allows pharmacists to dispense Ivermectin WITHOUT the need for a prescription – Dr. Eddy Bettermann MD

A new bill by the New Hampshire House of Representatives seeks to make this possible. The Republican-sponsored House Bill (HB) 1022, which aims to make ivermectin available over the counter (OTC), passed last March 16 in a 183-159 vote. Following its passing in the lower chamber, HB 1022 was sent to the New Hampshire Senate for review.

In a January 2022 legislative hearing, GOP State Rep. Jim Kofalt noted ivermectin’s good safety profile and the fact that it is available as an OTC drug in 79 countries. Meanwhile, GOP State Rep. Leah Cushman pointed out that making ivermectin easier to obtain through pharmacies is “safer than having to go to the farm store.”

“We still have patients who don’t know how to find the doctors who will write prescriptions for ivermectin,” said Cushman, who is also a nurse. (Related: New Hampshire seeks to make ivermectin available as an alternative COVID treatment.)
