Ivermectin dosage advice
My family and I decided not to get vaccinated and now I want to get prepared.
Ivermectin is proving extremely hard to get here in Europe but I got my hands on some: Iveraxiro 3 mg – 8 Pills for 10€ so the question is if i follow the I-MASK+ PLCCC protocol and my current weight is 100KG a whooping 40MG a day? That would mean 13 pills in this case. Is that right or do I have something backwards?
Also a question about Fluvoxamin.. what is it and where do i get it ? Is it also hard to get?
Thanks for helping us!
Lynx9284, if your weight is 100 kg (about 220 lbs), then you would take 40 mg of ivermectin per the FLCCC I-Mask protocol. Page 3 of the protocol has a helpful table to show you the amount of ivermectin and the number of pills. That table assumes a dose of .2 mg/kg which is the dose recommended for the original SARS-CoV-2. Double those amounts for the delta variant now circulating.
Fluvoxamine is a prescription drug used as an antidepressant and for the treatment of OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder). It is commonly available when used in psychiatry, but you might find some resistance in obtaining and filling a prescription for it to treat COVID-19 because of the resistance to any form of early treatment outside a hospital setting.
Calculating a dosage is just one step. You need to follow the typical frequency. I read somewhere that daily is too frequent, a dose lasts for at least a couple days. I’m no authority so read and follow the instructions.
Virtually all IVM for human consumption is labeled to take on an empty stomach. This is because a fatty meal increases absorption by 2.5 times that of empty stomach dosing. To avoid confusion between fatty meals and a meal with perhaps little fat, they simply say IVM is an empty stomach med.
FLCCC have advised, you want that increased absorption, so dose your IVM with a fatty meal. I don’t know why, but they do not advise adjusting the dose lower for fatty meal dosing.
A 40mg dose, with a fatty meal would equal 100mg empty stomach dosing, which is a bit spooky in my book. Personally, I would never take this high a dose for simple prophylaxis, though if I got sick, short term high dosing might be warranted.
For me, 18mg with a fatty meal would be about as high & I would feel comfortable with; particularly if I was dosing weekly or twice a week. This would equal nearly a 50mg empty stomach dose, which is fairly high.
From what I understand, the new FLCCC protocol for prophylaxis is twice a week and NOT daily. 40mg/day, particularly with a fatty meal is way too much… Don’t do it!
If I had a limited supply of IVM, I would err on conservative dosing for prophylaxis, and keep some powder dry in case I fell ill. You don’t want to gobble down your entire stash for prophylaxis, only to wind up high & dry if you fall ill down the road.
Thank you all for your input! I am still confused about the exact dosage. I mean I will not use ivm in prophylaxes but only when I am beginning to show strong symptomes.
What dosage would you recommend in that case? I will definitely not take an SSRI Antidepressant to treat covid as SSRI have their own problems.
Thank you so so much for your help!
My husbands doctor has him on 0.4mg/kg for five days. He can continue this dose for 14 days if he is not feeling better by day five, or adjust to 0.2mg/kg every 72 hours. That is 13 pills for the first 5-14 days, and then 6.5 pills every 72 hours until his subscription is completed. He hasn’t been eating much so I have been giving him about a 1/2 cup of nuts and some fruit.
He is also on fluvoxamine. You have to get it through prescription. He has a doctor from the FLCCC list and we had no trouble getting it filled at the pharmacy here in the US. Ivermectin is difficult to get.
The FLCCC.net protocol for those infected with SARS-CoV-2 virus is found on page 2 of their latest protocol. To view on the web, go to https://covid19criticalcare.com/covid-19-protocols/i-mask-plus-protocol/ . To download to whatever folder you’ve told your browser to accept downloads, use https://flccc.net/flccc-alliance-i-maskplus-protocol-english/ .
Their instructions for ivermectin are:
0.4–0.6 mg/kg per dose (take with or after a meal) — one dose daily, take for 5 days or until recovered.
Use upper dose if: 1) in regions with aggressive variants (e.g. Delta); 2) treatment started on or after
day 5 of symptoms or in pulmonary phase; or 3) multiple comorbidities/risk factors.”
A 100 kg person would take 40 to 60 mg per day for 5 days or until recovered. Be sure you have enough on hand to treat for at least five days (i.e. a minimum of 200 mg)!
Please consider also doing the oral/nasal sanitization with povidone-iodine, unless you have a thyroid condition.
These new changes to the protocol were discussed in the first half of this video. The oral/nasal sanitization starts around 13:00 in the video.
I have enough IVM for a five day course at the previously recommended lower dose. I think I should use the current guidelines but I would not have quite enough. I could finish the course with 🐴 paste. I also have the fluvoxamine although I really don’t look forward to a two week course of this. Apparently it can cause anxiety and insomnia even if you eliminate all caffeine as recommended.
What I’m trying to figure out is how to know when my symptoms indicate an infection with any certainty. What is my trigger and how bad do I have to feel. If I wake up with anosmia that’s easy but if I wake up feeling generally lousy with a headache, with no definite cough or fever, do I wait? With a limited supply I can’t afford to do false starts but according to Dr. Marek’s recent video, Delta is very serious and should be addressed as early as possible. So, is there any home testing that can provide an immediate result?
Yes there are home test kits which will give you an immediate answer. Do a web search for “coronavirus home test kits.”
I immediately found this link: https://www.cvs.com/shop/home-health-care/home-tests/home-covid-test
I have no experience with using any of them.
The two at-home tests approved by the Food and Drug Administration are Abbott Laboratories’ BinaxNow and Ellume’s COVID-19 home test. But at least in the Bay Area, it’s challenging to find a drugstore that isn’t sold out of BinaxNow, though Ellume is far easier to get.
I am also living in Europe and I wonder if you would mind telling me where you got the Ivermectin? Did you have a prescription for your order?
I found a blog for a doctor in Slovakia (which has approved of Ivermectin for treating Covid). He described writing a prescription for 4 packages of Scabioral (it is also Ivermectin) and prescribed the following for a 50 kg patient, and said he would double it for someone who is 100 kg. He also said to take it after eating.:
Scabioral 3mg tbl
(Ivermectin 3 mg tbl; 4 tbl in one orig. pack)
D.S. 3 tbl day 1.; 3 tbl day 2. 3 tbl day 3.; 3 tbl day 4.; 3 tbl day 5
