Whenever a new drug is introduced there are always rules about how it is to be prescribed. Well, usually.
Some drugs must be taken with food, others need to be taken on an empty stomach. Some drugs must be taken in the morning, others at night. Some drugs are suitable only for adults, others are best avoided by the elderly or by pregnant women.
The rules about when drugs should be taken are put together after the various trials have been performed. Sometimes, the rules change as doctors watch how a drug affects different groups of people.
For example, it was only after the terrible experience with pregnant women that it was found that thalidomide may be safe for some patients but unsuitable for women who are expecting a baby.
The rules are always devised by observation and experience and a doctor who ignores the prescribing rules can get into terrible trouble. He might lose his licence to practise and he might be sued.
I’ve been studying and writing about drugs since 1970 and I have never known an exception to these simple rules – until now.
The covid-19 experimental so-called vaccine is being treated quite differently to all other prescription drugs now available and ever made. It is now the most lethal medical product in history. And that means that it is also the most lethal man-made product of any kind. If the covid-19 jab were a car or a kettle it would have been withdrawn from sale a long time ago.
Here are just some of the ways in which the drug is getting unprecedented special and very dangerous treatment.
First, it is usual for drugs to be prescribed with caution to begin with. Drugs may be tried on specific groups of people. Trials usually continue for a few years before drugs are made widely available. However, the covid-19 experimental jabs are being rolled out to over seven billion people while the trial continues. Actually, in the past, no prescription drug would have been allowed on the market with the appalling early testing record of the covid-19 jabs.
