State AG rules doctors can prescribe ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine

Asked to provide a legal opinion on hospitals in the state banning doctors from prescribing certain treatments for COVID-19, South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson concluded doctors have the authority to prescribe drugs for the disease "off-label," such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.

"Our doctors, as well as their patients, need to know that doctors have the right to make important medical decisions, as long as they have the informed consent of their patients," Wilson said in a statement announcing the opinion, as FITSNews reported.
