Zelenko Strikes Back: Nebulized HCQ!!
Dismayed because HCQ takes too long to get into the system during the viral replication phase? Which it does?
Powder it, dissolve it in water (I’m guessing about that part), then breathe it in via a nebulizer! NEBU HCQ!!

How fast does it work? “In about an hour.” (Chris! Time to change ponies again! At least for the anti-viral phase).
It also works as a PEP.
Nebulized hydroxychloroquine as 150 mg HCQ in 6 ml (25 mg/ml) of isotonic sterile solution within the first five (5) days of COVID-19 symptoms (“Nebu HCQ”) has resulted in immediate improvement (<1 hour after use) in breathing in COVID-19 infected patients. Nebu HCQ served as a rescue medication with an 80x improvement in time and efficiency when compared to HCQ tablet (400-600 mg per day) combination therapy or Ivermectin combination therapy. No adverse events were reported outside of a bitter taste that quickly subsided.
The protocol used is as follows: 6 ml (25 mg HCQ per ml) per nebulizer session (15 minutes). Two sessions (12 ml total) in the first hour for patients with mild to moderate pulmonary symptoms from COVID-19.
Well that is cool.
The time-to-tissue-levels issue is a STRONG argument for pre-exposure prophylaxis (PEP)–take your antiviral medicine before the exposure when possible.
nice if it works but one still has to get hold of the HCQ first, which is a problem for us folks north of the border in Primitive Land. It’d be cool to see this efficacy compared with nebulized hydrogen peroxide.
Tablets will contain other substances you don’t want in your lungs. Nebulized hydrogen peroxide or chlorine dioxide already works wonderfully, there’s hardly a reason to use a 2-day half-life drug that strains the liver and doesn’t turn into useful nutrients. However, if this makes it look like a “new drug”, it might be useful in that way, similar to how the MSM attack people for using oral chlorine dioxide but once it’s nebulized and used by some hospital, then it’s somehow OK.
I’m assuming you have some sort of study that shows efficacy with that chlorine dioxide and/or hydrogen peroxide for COVID19, yes?
Nebulized hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is well-known (to people like us anyway) and has its own thread. Chlorine dioxide (ClO2), even moreso in residue-free water solution form, is much softer (has lower oxidative/electron-sequestering properties) than H2O2, so if one works there’s little reason to think the softer one won’t. We know it works systemically as well, although only Bolivia has approved it officially for Covid and if you try to run a controlled trial anywhere else (with a possible exception in Ecuador), your career will be over, so no forthcoming studies should be expected. I’m thinking of getting a nebulizer to try this, as I’ve come across a case in which even as he spent almost 2 weeks with fever and spent most of each day sleeping and sometimes shaking, he refused or wasn’t able to take any pills (a ridiculous unforeseen handicap) and would hardly drink any water (much less the CDS that we prepared for him LOL).
