Starting Thursday, pharmacies, clinics and other medical facilities in Ohio will be banned from dispensing or selling a malaria-based drug, hydroxychloroquine, to treat a new coronavirus.
Regulations were updated on Wednesday to reflect the change, but also included some warnings, for example, if it is a pet prescription or if a clinical trial includes an evaluation of the effectiveness of the medicine when used to fight COVID-19.
“A pharmacist need not prescribe or retail prescription to a licensed distributor of dangerous medicines, including prescriptions for patients resident in Ohio, who issue or sell at retail to non-resident distributors of dangerous medicines within the meaning of Rule 4729.: 5-8-01administrative code, if the prescription does not contain a written diagnostic code of the prescribing doctor or a statement stating his veterinary medical purpose, “read the website of the state.
“Regulations issued for chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine for prophylactic use concerning COVID-19 or for the treatment of COVID19 are strictly prohibited unless the Executive Director of the Board, after consulting the Chair of the Management Board, approves otherwise when he issues a resolution,” the statement continued. “On the date of entry into force of this rule, all previous approvals for the use of chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine shall be considered invalid and shall be approved in accordance with the procedure referred to in this paragraph.”
The Pharmaceutical Council further stated that the ban does not apply to prescriptions that are issued as part of a documented clinical trial approved by the Council to evaluate the safety and efficacy of drugs in the treatment of COVID-19. Regulations must include documentation that the patient is enrolled in a clinical trial. ‘ “
