The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was investigating reports about Ivermectin prescriptions written on a blank bond paper.

FDA Ivermectin prescription

In a report on GMA News Online, FDA Director-General Eric Domingo on Friday said that the Food and Drug Administration was investigating reports that ivermectin prescriptions were written on a blank bond paper and not on a prescription pad during the distribution of the said drug in Quezon City last Thursday.

Our regulatory enforcement unit is looking into the situation,” Domingo told GMA News Online in a text message.

Prior to this, Health Secretary Francisco Duque III said that the Food and Drug Administration must investigate reports of “token” prescriptions that were issued during the ivermectin distribution project of Representatives Mike Defensor and Rodante Marcoleta.

Duque stressed that under the law, prescriptions must contain the name, address, professional registration number, and tax receipt number of the prescriber as well as the patient’s name, gender, age, and date of prescription, among others.

Defensor, Marcoleta, and some physicians from the Concerned Doctors and Citizen of the Philippines distributed the said drug despite repeated warnings of the Department of Health and the Food and Drug Administration that it was unregistered and not a treatment for COVID-19.

However, Duque said that any ivermectin distribution can’t be considered illegal if it was done under a “compassionate special permit” or was prescribed by a doctor and compounded by a duly licensed pharmacist.

This had led the Quezon City government to encourage the Department of Health and the Food and Drug Administration to make a clear stand on the use of the said drug.
