10 thoughts on “DeWine Backpeddles on Statewide HCQ Ban”

  1. Mr Dewine…Stop all testing and tracing and let this thing play out like Sars, H1N1, and all the rest…Also know that true Christians know what you are doing..if its our time to go, then God will take us, regardless if we are masked or not..

  2. I’m so tired of all things being sensationalized. Virus exist, people die, and God makes the decisions.
    You will not get my vote…You are a democrat in republican clothing..

  3. The State of Ohio is banning the use of hydroxychloroquin beginning Thursday. I want to give you a timeline of what we went through with this nasty virus.
    The first picture is myself and my family the day I returned from a work trip to Guatemala from March 9-19….4 days before my symptoms started.

    On March 23rd the symptoms started with a fever and my whole body hurt. As the days went on, my whole body would shake, then I lost my sense of smell, and I had an awful headache. At this point, my breathing wasn’t 100% but I was good.

    I tried to get tested 5 times, 2 of which my doctor tried, and was rejected 5 times because I didn’t meet testing criteria. I was tested for the flu and it came back negative. My doctor put me on azithromycin and breathing treatments but I continued to get worse.

    The night before I went into the hospital, I was struggling to breathe but I still wanted to wait to go in because I was scared.

    On the morning of April 3rd I couldn’t do it anymore. I had only eaten 2 bagels since March 23rd and I could barely drink….I had lost 19 lbs. I could barely take a shower and my wife had to dress me. We went to the hospital.
    My wife and mom had to let me get wheeled into Marion General and they couldn’t be with me….leaving them behind was scary.

    Once in the ER I found out that I had pneumonia and they started azithromycin again in my IV and gave me the Covid test. They told me I was going to be admitted because I was very sick.

    About 5 hours later I got the positive Covid test result. They started the hydroxychloroquin right away.

    Each night my wife and I would send pictures because most of the time I was too weak to FaceTime.

    The second picture is my first night in the hospital…..the third picture was taken less than 24 hours after starting hydroxychloroquin and by about 36 hours I was asking for food and they turned back my oxygen.

    I was never on a ventilator and other than azithromycin and hydroxychloroquin, I was getting a shot in my stomach each night to prevent blood clotting. I was in the hospital for 4 days and I went back to work on April 20.

    This drug may not work for everyone, but it worked for me and I know it can work for others. If it’s so dangerous, why would they give it to me in the hospital and send me home with a prescription for it??

    Banning this drug is a political game and the people suffering from covid are going to lose.

    Thank God that neither my wife or any of my kids had any symptoms and were negative for antibodies.

    SHAME ON YOU OHIO

    Thank you Dusty Privette for telling me to share this.

  4. As a nurse who has administered this medication to many patients whose physician had prescribed it, I saw no adverse effects, ever. I totally agree with Gov. De Wine, it should be between a physician and his/her patient whether is prescribed this drug. Government should never decide whats best for a patient, EVER !!!

  5. My treatment should be between my Dr and I only! The state and pharmaceutical board should have no say what so ever! DeWine better stay on top of this situation or he should pay the price for not protecting his constituents rights!

  6. Good for DeWine! This order made me so angry! How dare anyone tell my doctor he can’t prescribe this drug to me if he and I think it will work!

  7. What a huge over reach of government. NO where in America should a drug that has shown efficacy be BAND!! There are people who take this medication for various other reasons than Covid . Get some good information You have skewed all the numbers in cases. And frankly who would trust one word from you or your staff. Open Ohio up LET OUR CHILDREN GO TO SCHOOl!!
    It’s not about the Virus. ITS ABOUT AN ELECTION. Do the job you were elected to do. Stop being ALL MIGHTY MY WORD IS LAW / CABAL.

  9. Thank You, Governor Dewine. This should’ve been the initial response, nevertheless, I appreciate you taking action to reverse this ban. Again, this drug is older than Methuselah. Even if you deny the efficacy of the drug, in spite of numerous studies showing positive results, it is up to patient and doctor when deciding a course of treatment. Every patient deserves the RIGHT TO TRY this medication early if diagnosed with Covid-19. THE RISKS DO NOT OUTWEIGH THE BENEFITS. You don’t have to be an “expert” or healthcare professional to see this. Please stop politicizing this pandemic, ie. BANS and MANDATES.
    We voted for you. Protect our freedoms. Don’t let us down.
    Sincerely,
    H, RN/Conservative
