I got a response from the FDA compounding alias from my email to them:
Dear Mr. Curtis,
The Office of Compounding Quality and Compliance within CDER’s Office of Compliance acknowledges receipt of your email concerning ivermectin. Thank you for the information that you have provided.
If the FDA should comment further on this issue, we will do so publicly. In the meantime, please feel free to go to FDA’s Compounding website for currently available information at https://www.fda.gov/drugs/guidance-compliance-regulatory-information/human-drug-compounding.
Should you have any additional comments/questions, contact email@example.com

And so I wrote a reply back:
Dear FDA compounding alias,
Thank you very much for replying. My first email was not the most polite, but it’s frustrating to see a government agency doing the opposite of what they should be doing, while the pandemic goes out of control. If you see someone pouring gasoline on a raging fire that has been burning for 2 years, a government agency meant to protect the public from infernos, it’s a little bit hard to be extremely nice.
Copying and pasting (possibly) inaccurate information in the midst of a pandemic should weigh on your conscience. You should want to double-check and even triple-check your work. Are you certain you aren’t doing the bidding of Big Pharma? Threatening pharmacies making well-known safe and life-saving treatments may effectively cause the death of people. Another unintended consequence of your effort is more people will be forced to buy the horse paste.
I understand my blog post I sent you a link to (https://keithcu.com/wordpress/?p=4410) would not be perfectly convincing to everyone of the safety and efficacy of Ivermectin against Covid, but it is a good start. There is so much to discuss, from the purposely designed poorly-run trials, to the corrupt meta-analyses meant to downplay the signals, to the papers retracted for political reasons. For example, the Principle trial gave it up to 14 days after first symptoms. You don’t have to be an MD to realize that waiting so many days can easily sabotage the efficacy signal of a treatment. It would be a bit like waiting an average of 7 days to treat a gunshot wound, and then complaining about the bad results! Do you ever hear people talk about time to treat?
There are no big and top-dollar studies showing Ivermectin works because it threatens billions of dollars in Big Pharma money, and the vaccine EUA. In fact, the vaccines, should never have been approved. The NIH should have conducted a study in April 2020 on IVM for Covid, when the evidence first arrived. Conducting one now would be embarrassing and unethical. This is the March of Folly.
I admit it is not entirely easy to find the truth, that Ivermectin is extremely safe and effective against Covid. I said previously there were 60 studies regarding Ivermectin for Covid, but now there are actually 80! Also hundreds of doctors in the US and thousands of doctors worldwide who are using it. It’s almost insane that the most effective doctors are being threatened. It makes me think we are heading down the path of Idiocracy.
If you look closely, you will notice that the NIH wants to push only the expensive and novel but minimally tested drugs, not the proven safer and cheaper ones. The NIH is obviously corrupt, but you are only playing one small part in that.
One of the big challenges in our current medical system is that no one is experimenting anymore. No major University has created an inpatient or outpatient Covid protocol. Doctors are just following guidelines and never trying anything new or trusting their clinical judgment. Modern medicine is bureaucratic, stagnant, and sad. And being destroyed. BTW one other reason it’s being destroyed is that when you don’t treat aggressively outpatient, they go to the hospital and every admission is a super-spreader event.
If you never try anything new, you will never get better! Meanwhile there are 1300 studies of various drugs, but very few of them are being recommended or used, by the NIH or anyone else:
I could easily improve outcomes over my nearest hospital. It sucks to live in this situation where a computer scientist knows how to treat Covid far better than the NIH or the local hospital filled with experts who are actually just drones.
It would take a while to prove it, but HCQ and Ivermectin are far safer and more effective than the jabs, Remdesivir, Molnupiravir and Paxlovid.
Obviously, not all of these mistakes are your fault, or are things you are capable of fixing, but it can be helpful to see a pattern of terrible behavior around you before you realize you are screwed up at your job. It can also help you understand why the pandemic keeps getting worse.
If I were in charge of the NIH, I could have ended this pandemic last April. Some people think this virus is reverting to a more virulent form, and so humanity is in deep shit if we don’t get the replication under control by mass chemo-prophylaxis — of the kind you are threatening people over! You don’t have to spend 4 years in medical school to realize that if you want to prevent people from going to the hospital, effective treatment before the hospital is important.
The decision to mass-vaccinate in the middle of a pandemic using the full spike protein will go down in history as the worst public health decision ever. It’s like 1000s of Titanics. I have papers you could read to explain more, (such as this great one by Seneff and Nigh) but in short, it’s because the spike protein is the toxin of the disease, and it causes clotting, neurological disorders, and many other problems. It’s genocidal to encourage it or mandate it, and surely secretly within the Pfizer data is a mountain of bad evidence not published– I’d love to see the D-dimer levels which they gathered for patients, but never published.
It’s not just that the jabs are dangerous on an individual level, but also on a population level, by breeding vax-resistant and more infectious and immune-resistant strains. Mass-vaxxing during a pandemic is like a dog chasing its tail. Except far worse.
When I wrote to you in December, I said Covid was the worst it has ever been, but in that time it has gotten even worse. The best way to end this pandemic is to make Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine (and other similarly safe effective therapies) available without a prescription, next to the cough syrup in every drug store and gas station. If you did that, then Covid would no longer be filling every hospital, and people would not get long-Covid.
I’m not a medical doctor, but I’ve spent time working on mind-bending computer science problems, and this is not one one of them. India is distributing Covid home-treatment kits in some places right now: https://www.hindustantimes.com/cities/others/covid19-medicine-kits-distribution-begins-in-varanasi-101641063721395.html
As I wrote in my blog post, testing without treatment for an infectious disease is madness, but who complains?
You are downstream from these terrible decisions. But you are also a sentient being who has the possibility to learn and complain to your manager.
So anyway, it kind of sucks for me to watch a big organization flounder for 2 years and act in a way that can only be explained bureaucratic incompetence combined with regulatory capture. If you’d like me to explain any of this in more detail, I’d be happy to.
At some point, you should get frustrated with the number of waves, and hospitalizations, and deaths, and want to do much better.
