Caught on Tape: Texas H-E-B Pharmacist Refuses Safe Prescriptions

It’s time pharmacists soul-search about what ‘safe’ means.

H-E-B Pharmacy
H-E-B Baytown, Texas

Drive around San Francisco, Philadelphia, and New York, and one thing is clear – there are waves of addicted and overdosing opioid victims living in squalor and destroying our communities. There’s one thing they have in common in every city: None of these people are dying from Ivermectin.

Someone should get that message “Nikki” in Baytown, TX.

Big chain pharmacies have been blocking prescriptions nationwide

Nikki is a pharmacist at the Baytown, TX grocery store H-E-B. H-E-B has 380 stores across the US state of Texas and northeast Mexico. The company also operates ‘Central Market’. On September 16, 2023 ‘Nikki’ refused to fill an ivermectin prescription for Dr. Mary Talley Bowden in Houston, TX. This process has been playing out nationwide for the past three years, with pharmacies refusing to fill medical prescriptions like hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin repeatedly with no consequence. Until now.

For those of you who don’t remember, Dr. Bowden was a target of Shots Heard, the online harassment group operated by Public Good Projects, a non-profit operated by liberal democrats and funded in part by BIO – a pharmaceutical lobbyist company. Dr. Bowden was attacked via medical license board complaints as well as being removed from twitter, all for prescribing ivermectin, a safe and affordable ‘miracle drug’ that Merck gives away to African countries.

Ivermectin could have threatened the continued use of EUA’s

Ivermectin is also a medication whose uses could have threatened the Emergency Use Authorization for the outrageously overpriced and by some accounts deadly remdesivir, paxlovid, and all the vaccines and tests that were green-lit under the “EUA”. According to the wording of the FDA’s rules on EUAs:

“For FDA to issue an EUA there must be no adequate, approved, and available alternative to the candidate product for diagnosing, preventing, or treating the disease or condition.”

FDA Emergency Use Authorization of Medical Products and Related Authorities

Dr. Bowden recently sued the FDA, lost her first trial and then won her appeal. The result is that Dr. Bowden has been vindicated and can continue her lawsuit against the FDA’s misrepresentation of Ivermectin, an action which caused pharmacists like Nikki to feel emboldened to reject prescriptions across the country. A significant number of prescriptions are used off-label, a standard practice upheld by the fifth circuit court in Dr. Bowdenw’s appeal.

The FDA is accused of poisoning public sentiment about ivermectin in an August 21, 2021 tweet where it called the human medication ‘Horse Paste’.

FDA You are not a horse.

You’d think Nikki would be up to date on Dr. Bowden’s wins of late, but she wasn’t. This is how we learn.

Unfortunately for H-E-B and the young Baytown, TX pharmacist, Dr. Bowden recorded her exchange with Nikki. In this recorded call, Nikki:

  • disrespected Dr. Bowden’s credentials
  • misrepresented the risk/benefits of Ivermectin
  • incorrectly accused Dr. Bowden of only seeing the patient by phone (which is legal)
  • was ignorant of the LD50 safety profile of Ivermectin
  • hung up on Dr. Bowden

Here’s the video of Dr. Bowden’s call with “Nikki”

Pharmacist Nikki: We’re not comfortable with the risk vs benefit based on the toxicity from the ivermectin when it’s being used for COVID treatment.

Dr. Mary Tally Bowden: Oh, ok. So tell me about that.

Pharmacist Nikki: Ms. Bowden?

Dr. Mary Tally Bowden: It’s Doctor Bowden.

Pharmacist Nikki: Doctor, Ms., I’m not gonna fill this prescription, no matter what you tell me right now. That’s my judgment that I’m using. I have the right to do that. Whatever you want to do with that, feel free.

Dr. Mary Tally Bowden: Can you just tell me what, um, what’s the plan if he gets COVID and he goes downhill. Can I send him to you? Will you take care of him?

Pharmacist Nikki: Sure. Go for it.

Dr. Mary Tally Bowden: So you’re gonna take care of him?

Pharmacist Nikki: Are you gonna take care of him? Are you seeing him in-house or are you sending prescriptions based off of telephone?

Dr. Mary Tally Bowden: Um, excuse me I saw that person in person, and telemedicine is allowed by the way.

Pharmacist Nikki: HEB (ACD?) does not usually fill this medication. It’s up to the pharmacist’s discretion based on the dosing that you’re doing but we are not comfortable filling it.

Dr. Mary Tally Bowden: Do you know what the LD-50 is?

Pharmacist Nikki: Yes I do.

Dr. Mary Tally Bowden: Ok, what’s the LD50 of ivermectin?

Pharmacist Nikki: Oh my goodness.

Dr. Mary Tally Bowden: What is it?

Pharmacist Nikki: Doctor

Dr. Mary Tally Bowden: It’s 25 milligrams per kilogram. Do you know what the dosage is I prescribed? It’s .4 milligrams per kilogram. Did you learn that in pharmacy school?

Pharmacist Nikki: (hangs up).

Media Request Email for H-E-B Pharmacy

We heard about some other disturbing issues regarding the pharmacy and contacted H-E-B about their policy on basic prescriptions like ivermectin. Email below.


I’m a journalist looking for an official policy statement from HEB. 
We’ve received reports with evidence that HEB Pharmacists have been blocking prescriptions for drugs prescribed by doctors. When doctors attempt to discuss the issue with your pharmacists (in particular “Nikki” from Baytown TX H-E-B Pharmacy), your pharmacist hung up on the medical doctor in question. 
You can view and hear a recording of the interaction with Dr. Mary Talley Bowden and ’Nikki’ here. 

We also received whistleblower information from a pharmacist inside HEB stating this:

The FDA has recently been reprimanded by the Fifth Court of Appeals for its deceptive references online regarding Ivermectin. Access restrictions to 4-aminoquinolines like Hydroxychloroquine and cinchona alkaloids have repeatedly been employed in biological warfare affecting civilian populations since as far back as the United States Civil War.
The Nuremberg Code requires informed consent stating that the voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.

Is HEB corporate behind these policies or are your pharmacists uneducated and simply going rogue?

We will be publishing an article on this today.

Thank you

We did not receive a response from H-E-B by press time.

What is LD50?

LD50 is the median lethal dose that would kill any one person in about half of a population. Basically, it’s the toxic dose of a drug. Dr. Bowden is prescribing .4 mg per kg of body weight for her patient. That would be approximately 1/60th the LD50 for ivermectin. In other words – it’s a ridiculously safe level and there would be no risk.

The word ‘safety’ is used a little too loosely in medicine these days. According to this website you can get some great discounts on highly addictive fentanyl at H-E-B pharmacy.

H-E-B will sell you fentanyl for a toothache, but not hcq or ivm with hardly any side effects. Make it make sense!!

The Texas AG is investigating pharma companies

Over the weekend Texas AG Ken Paxton was cleared of any impeachment charges over the weekend. In May, Paxton initiated investigations into pharma companies for deceptive practices as well as gain-of-function charges for developing COVID in a lab. 3 weeks later he was brought up on impeachment charges by a piss-drunk Texas speaker of the house Dade Phelan. Now that he’s cleared, expect investigations into these pharma companies to begin again in earnest.

One can’t help but wonder if the Texas Attorney General will be investigating pharmacies, too.

If you have encountered pharmacies that have refused basic prescriptions like Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin, report them to us to be added to our “Broken Pharmacies” Map of Pharmacies that refused medications in America in one of our darkest hours.

"What we priests were forced to endure under the Nazi regime, especially in Dachau concentration camp, is no more than a cup filled from the vast sea of human suffering in the world today," wrote Fr. John Lenz. "It is not this suffering as such that is important. The important thing is to show those who have crosses of their own to bear in life just what the grace of God can do for those who follow faithfully in the footsteps of Christ the Crucified. It is no less important to reveal the wickedness of Hell."

The Nazi hellhole Dachau concentration camp held the largest number of Catholic priests -- more than 2,400 -- in the Nazi camp system. They came from two dozen countries, from every background -- parish priests and prelates, monks and friars, teachers and missionaries. More than one-third were killed.

Among the survivors was Fr. Lenz, who was asked by his superiors to write an account of what he saw -- and experienced -- so that it would not be forgotten. This book, filled with gripping real-life stories and eighty photos, was the stunning result and became an immediate sensation.

This work is unique among those written on the Holocaust; it reveals how, by tireless sacrifice amid barbaric suffering, the Church was victorious in one of the darkest times in human history. When the Nazis entered several European countries, many people were afraid to speak up. Numerous priests, however, continued to preach the gospel and the truth about the dignity of life and freedom. Through their courageous witness you will learn about:

The arrest and imprisonment of priests and other faithful citizens
What really happened at Dachau and the horrific treatment of prisoners
How priests ministered to fellow prisoners and prayed unceasingly in the camps
Ways in which priests secretly brought the Blessed Sacrament to the people and heard confessions
Spiritual lessons learned in the face of death and despair

"Only when we are forced to endure the most profound suffering and hardship do we learn how to catch hold of God's hand in our misery," Fr. Lenz reflected. "We learn to pray."
