Alice, your dosages are misleading. They are based on 0.2 mg/kg and that may not be the dosage you want. Folks need to keep track of what flccc.net is recommending. They have increased the recommended dosage if you have been exposed or are showing symptoms.
I would recommend not buying ivermectin from India
Three questions on use type and dosage of Ivermectin.
1. Can I use ivermectin as a prophylactic for COVID that is sold by Tractor Supply used as injection for Cattle and Swine (Noromectin 1% 50ML by Norbrook)?
2. Can I take this orally rather than by injections (if so presume with 8oz. water per I-MASS FLCCC)
3. Question on dosage of a Ml. version versus a Mg. version. Conversion ratio of Ml/Mg is 1 Ml. = 1,000 Mg. FLCCC recommends 18 Mg. but that is only equal to 0.018 Ml. Does not make sense. Cattle dose is 1 Ml. for every 120 Lbs. I am 200 Lbs guy.
Thanks for the help!
I raise sheep and goats and have used ivermectin and similar meds for worm killers for years. Livestock owners routinely use ivermectin formulations labeled as “injectable” but give it by mouth. The active ingredient is the same. Different “carriers” in oral vs. injection formulations. Your dosage calculation needs to include the 1% concentration of the injectible drug. Your number would be correct if it were 100% ivermectin, but it’s not. So multiply by 100 to compensate for that.
Thanks very much, Julie!
For a ‘math guy’ I did not take into account the 1%. So for the benefit of others on the thread, FLCCC recommendation of 18Mg = 1.8Ml. This ties out to the dosage for cattle of 1.0Ml per 120 Lbs as would equal 1.7Ml per 200 Lbs.
There was a veterinarian on another forum I frequent who was using Noromectin orally. I’m no math whiz, but the horse paste is supposed to be 1.87%, which I calculated to be 18.7mg per cc/ml.
Noromectin at 1% would be 10mg per cc/ml by my reckoning. Measure twice, cut once (anyone remember Ross Perot?)
I got a 1cc syringe (without needle) from my pharmacist. Told him I needed to give my cat some medicine. He slapped it on the counter & said “no charge”. It might be nice to have a syringe with needle to draw Noromectin through the rubber port, without having to pry the port off. Don’t know if bacteria can breed in Noromectin if you contaminate the whole jug by opening it improperly, but best to pull out what you need with a sterile syringe & needle if you can.
If you’ve got any nurses in the family, they should be able to provide a 1cc syringe with needle that would be ideal. Needless to say, do not inject this stuff, but squirt it into a shot of water, & down the hatch. 1.2cc should give a 12mg dose. 1.8cc, 18mg.
If you’re taking IVM with a fatty meal, you’re supposed to get 2.5 times better absorption than the standard empty stomach dosing. This would put 12mg with meal equal to 30mg empty stomach dosing, which is a high a dose as I’m comfortable taking in one go.
I know the FLCCC is saying 18mg with meal is OK, but YIKES, that is equal to 45mg empty stomach dosing. I’ve been looking at their ever increasing dosing and frequency with a bit of concern. More isn’t always better, & I prefer moderation during prophylaxis. If you fall ill, you can always up the dosing at that time, which is my preferred protocol.
Could someone advise please:
I started feeling unwell. Throat, nose, headache. I know I was exposed 4 days earlier as a few friends called to say they had tested positive. I started taking IVM immediately and so far I have the same lingering symptoms where I feel like a cold is breaking out but not quick come out yet. I took a PCR test and was negative. Could it be that IVM suppressed enough as to not test positive or that the test was too early? My main question is should I keep on the IVM until all symptoms are gone? I’ve order more but I’ll be out before they arrive and I’m worried it will just go full blown at that point?
any thoughts? Thanks in advance
P.S. To the best of my knowledge, no humans (or animals) have ever been on high dose IVM for any length of time. The new FLCCC protocol of 18mg with fatty meal twice/week is equal to 360mg empty stomach dosing per month if you accept fatty meal dosing raising the equivalent 2.5 times.
A bit spooky for this patient! I’m a daily tippler, & have seen cautions about alcohol & IVM regarding the blood brain barrier. As the half-life for IVM is 18 hours in blood, there really is no way to avoid the IVM/alcohol interaction without going teetotal while you’re on this new FLCCC regimen.
I’ve taken 12mg IVM with fatty meal at lunch (8 hours before my evening tipple) every two weeks, but I would not be comfortable going above this level without giving up my evening tipple.
A word to the wise…
@ bmsalisbury… I’m no doctor, but personally, I would reduce my dosage & space it out to where my current stash would last 10 days post symptom onset.
This would carry you through the day 8 danger zone, which is typically when the wheels come off if this is going to occur.
IVM is known to persist in fatty tissues quite a while after you quit taking it, so this should carry you through to recovery.
Godspeed to you, & hope you’ll let us know how you’re doing.
