I am an Ivermectin believer and started a thread on Ivermectin back in March of last year (I think). I also have the same regimen you have and have read about various doctors who take Ivermectin prophylactically with no side effects.Ivermectin is recommended for mild to moderate cases when the patient is still ambulatory (at home, self-care) and not for the more advanced runaway cytokine response. I have ivermectin, doxycyline, a pulse oximeter, and graph paper for charting oxygen saturation and temps. in my First Aid kit. If I even have cold/flu symptoms, and I'm not sure if it is COVID, I will take a low dose of ivermectin prophylactically. I cannot cite the report but one physician in a hospital in the D.R. recommends 400 mcg per kg of bodyweight. (Multiply mcg by kg, then divide by 1000 to get mg). For me this would be about 33 mg. Still investigating whether this is a single dose or distributed among divided doses. If anosmia or other indications of COVID, I will ramp up the dosage. If my O2 saturation starts heading south, I'm calling 911.
I have read the four or so original research articles on ivermectin, and I have them. Later, I want to add to the ivermectin thread by introducing and summarizing these articles. When I look at the posting menu, I can find no way to attach documents. Is the only way to share by private PM?
As far as the articles, you can do a simple copy/paste and post it here.
You may want to revise previous threads here first. I'd bet the articles you possess have already been posted.
