I have never advocated taking a medication compounded for use with animals. Ivermectin has been use by humans and compounded for human for many years.

Actually, both terms are used for the same thing, somewhat like
"flammable" and "inflammable".

But for those objecting to the term "horse medicine" (et al.) as being
political... while there is some loading to the term, many of the idiots
who are taking it on the basis of -- let's call it "poor advice" --
are taking literal horse medicine, versions that are distributed for
veterinary purposes, because it's relatively available without having
to deal with a doctor as gatekeeper.  Some aren't even adjusting the
dosages properly, based on the differences between the larger animals
and humans, and are getting quite ill as a result.
