Can anyone please help source Ivermectin?
In case of disease – what dosage should one use?
Chris mention “400 micro gram per kilogram…..”
Is that per kilo of body mass?
I weigh 85 kilogram. So 0,4 miligram * 85 kg = 34 mg
Yes, that’s the correct interpretation. However, the 400 ug/kg dose was the one used in Egypt study, not necessarily the one recommended elsewhere. I don’t have any data to suggest or support using that over 200 ug/kg, which is the more typical upper dose used (by EVMS, et al).
So, 17 mg if someone your size were going to take IVM at that dose.
The “standard dose” of ivermectin for parasites (worms, scabies, refractory head lice) is 0.15-0.20 mg / Kg of body weight.
Some studies have used 0.4 mg/Kg, a “double dose.”
One study used 0.6 mg/Kg, a “triple dose,” and repeated this daily for [Edit: 5] days which will give an even higher peak blood level as the drug is not completely eliminated from the body in 24 hours, so it accumulates with daily dosing.
Another study (Krowleweiski) correlated higher serum concentration of ivermectin with higher efficacy, so higher doses makes sense.
Finding the toxic upper limit of ivermectin has been tough as, like most research in toxicology, no human studies can be done, and animal species differ significantly in sensitivity. In addition, concentration found to inhibit 50% of SC2 infections in cell cultures are tough to relate to living animals. For example, ivermectin is concentrated in lung tissue, is highly bound to serum proteins giving serum levels a complex and unknown relationship to tissue levels. Lots is not known.
It looks like most animals can take up to 10 mg/Kg before neurologic symptoms become apparent–obtunded mentation, in-coordinated and unsteady walking, slurred speech (in humans). Coma is produced at a single dose of 15 mg / Kg (75 times the “standard dose.”)
These are very very rough numbers and compare different species–which is not a good idea. But they give rough ball park numbers.
Hay, thanks. Good to know.
Valley Vet Supply was still offering it when I just checked. So far I see no sign of restrictions.
Be ready with a cup of coffee if you’ve never done an overseas transaction. You’ll be provided easy instructions and your US bank may make you jump through an extra hoop. ALSO, be very cautious about online stores claiming to be Canadian price gouging. 20 tablets ought to cost around $35 with shipping. Yes, shipping cost more than the compound itself.
Just as an update: I did place an order with https://www.indiamart.com/saenterprises-nagpur/ and the package finally arrived. It took a full month for the “new-normal shipping” but it arrived nevertheless and I can sleep better now.
Thank you again all for valuable hints!
Here’s a bit more about Ivermectin theoretical dosing, just to keep it in one thread. There is a ton of excellent information here, I suggest really suggest reading it through:
I copied the entire webpage… I’m getting paranoid.
If you’re not a fan of the horse paste. You can get a human prescription in the US. Hopefully it’s available in your state, but this is what I did.
I went to the FLCCC website in the FAQ section: https://covid19criticalcare.com/i-mask-prophylaxis-treatment-protocol/faq-on-ivermectin/
There FLCCC doctors suggest (uner FAQ question #2) this website to find doctors in the US that will prescribe IVM https://www.exstnc.com/
Click & Scroll down to the bottom.
Choose your doctor of choice. I went with Dr. Miguel Antonatos (IVM) https://text2md.com, they follow the I-Mask+ protocol. Went through the 54 questionnaire survey & paid a $35 consultation fee.
The doctor prescribed me with covid prophylaxis IVM and I stopped by my local walgreens. I paid with insurance and the price went down to $32. Original retail price is $62. Not sure if I paid more then what is normal but I was fine with it.
How can you tell if you received real IVM and not a placebo from these untrusted sources?
For animal products, you have to be aware that may also contain other active ingredients that might be harmful or risky for humans. Also, I’m not sure if they have the same purity as human IVM.

Ivermectin – So that’s what David Paymer needed ?
