Careful friend lest the anti HCQ/Ivermectin brigade will surely roast you. 😁This is considered heresy. No cheap widely available drug can treat CV19 according to the forum medical police. Only big pharma profitable medication pushed by MSM and cyber overlords is allowed. You've been warned! 🤣

Ever since I first mentioned Ivermectin back in March, I have been following the progress on a regular basis just to see where it's going.

There has been remarkable progress in India, a country with 210 million inhabitants but yet now only averages 30 deaths per day since they began using it.

It does not appear that ivermectin is being used on a large scale here in the DR. If anyone knows of several hospitals/clinics where ivermectin is being used as a principle treatment or preventative for CV19, I'd be interested in hearing about that. I remember the story about Doctor Redondo of the Rescue health group of private clinics being an advocate but I haven't heard much else from within this country about ivermectin use here.

It’s being used in hospitals 6 months ago you could buy in pharmacy now hospitals control it, many friends bought it as insurance friends who tried couple weeks later to buy no supply Went under hospital control.

The pharmacy next door to me still has it. It's such a common drug I think they'd have a difficult time trying to control it.

Maybe it was a supply management issue at time it was impossible to find, good to hear they have stock on shelves !

We still need a doctor to detail the treatment protocol. None of the news items indicates dosage, or frequency with any sort of definitive medical advice. Ivermectin tablets (of varying dosages) are still available in some pharmacies but without knowing how much to take and when, self medicating can lead to bigger problems than you are trying to prevent or cure.

This is not a medical advise.

it states it there. They started with 100, 200, and ended with 400 mcg per kg of weight, applied onece and followed by another dose 24 hours later.

I would imagine 300 mcg/kg 1*24hrs*2 would be a safe dosage even without being hospitalized.

That's how docs do it with other meds. Estimate based on body weight and adjust up or down if needed. It's really not that difficult. There's tons of data out there to look at. You can also control for gender, age, and ethnicity.

Encouraging news and opinion. I'm still confused about the conversion of 6 mg pills to the dosage of 300 mcg/kg of body weight. and have yet to see the dosage for the accompanying Azithromycin. All of which is why I think being under a doctors care for this treatment is so important. If one wishes to seek out this treatment. perhaps the Rescue Group running Bournigal in Puerto Plata is the place to go. I've also hear of doctors using Ivermectin as a preventative treatment against initial infection but have not seem much written about that use for this drug.

All in all more studies and clearer recommendations regarding ivermectin are clearly needed. If it works as suggested in the early stages of illness or as a preventative treatment, this drug could indeed be a game changer. I'm not at all interested in Big Pharma discussions just how to knock down a CV19 infection before it gets so serious that the patient is considered critical and in need of advanced treatment and therapies just to survive or risks any of the long term after effects of this disease. I will begin asking my doctor about this protocol from now on.

6 mg = 6000 mcg
if you weight 80 kg, using 300mcg value would be 300*80= 24000
24000/6000 = 4 tabs

Azythromicin usually has a dosage as another similar antobiotics (e.g. cyprofloxacin, cephalofloxacin), all have usual dosage 500 mg e/8 hrs

Don't forget Vitamin C, zinc, and Aspirin.

I'm clearly missing it. I've read the article several times and I see where Dr. Redondo recommends 400 mcg but I do not see where it says that dose is repeated 24 hours later. Can you get me to that info? Thx.

Dosage is rated by weight so it depend how fat you are ;) to how much you take! standard formula pharmacist will tell you, if you start barking like dog and chasing cars cut back a bit!
