Ivermectin / HCQ / Azith or Doxycycline Dosage
Anyone have this info?
And anyone have any experience / thoughts on the difference between Ivermectin for horses (available on Amazon or at farm stores for about $8 for a horse size dose) or Ivemectin for people which requires a prescription?
Looks to be the same stuff.
Thanks so much!
Of course it is the same stuff! Also veterinary meds are subject to quality control. I take iverdrops for birds myself.
The only danger would be if some idiot does not do their math well and confuses milligrams with milliliters. (or pregnant and lactating women would not read the warnings).
But since that calculation error would result in 3 orders of magnitude more dosage, the price would become absurdly high.
(although even lower than a single dose of remdesivir!!!)
It is indeed the same stuff. Great question.
For educational purposes only, and not as medical advice of course, the calculations are pretty straightforward.
The horse Ivermectin, apple flavored seems to be the most common, comes as a 1.87% paste. That works out to 18.7 mg/gram (or 18,700 micrograms/gram)
The standard dose for humans is between 150 and 200 micrograms (millionths of a gram) per kg. The calculations are pretty simple. Here’s the table that results for a variety of ‘patient’ weights and the dosing range for the 1.87% paste.
The actual math would be:
[your weight in pounds] /2.2 * 0.2 = your dose in milligrams
[Your dose in mg] / 18.7 = weight of 1.87% paste you’d need to ingest in grams
Alternatively, you could note that the usual tube has 6.08 grams in it. If the desired dose is contained in 1g, the 1/6th of the tube. For most, uh, miniature horses, the usual range is anywhere from 1/8th of a tube to 1/6th.
As a last resort you could just use the weight markings on the plunger. Those work very well. However, when you open the cap, be sure to see if there isn’t a fat air gap at the beginning, there often is. Squeeze the plunger until you get to a solid core, then set the ring counter for #.

And, then you have to convert grams of ivermectin paste to a volume measure so you know how much of the paste to take.
So a large 100 KG person wants to take about 1 gram of this paste (see Chris’ table above).
Each little tube is 6 grams. So you want only 1/6 of the little tube. A very small dose. And a small person needs only 1/12 of the tube.
Ivermectin for humans seems to come as 6mg or 12mg. I’d say 1x 12mg per day for max 4 days seems to be the dosaging that most effectively eliminates the virus. Same dose (12mg) for prophylaxis, but once a weak:
Doxycycline as a fish antibiotic
What about the HCQ / Ivermectin / Azith or Doxy cocktail?
(Just for educational purposes of course, and not as medical advice)
😀 good one Chris
Just add the daily dose to the cocktail? Also in the below link the guy goes into not taking Iveermectin for more than 2 consecutive days as it builds up in the system and can lead to an overdose.
Amazing how much we’re on our own here, so grateful to have this site for collective wisdom.
I found this on dosage for scabies, would it be the same for Covid?
Vitamin D + HCQ+zinc + ivermectin + azithromycin or doxycycline + NAC or CDS would probably be the best treatment, with which we could end the pandemic in a couple of weeks.
If you have a composting toilet, ivermectin might be best avoided. Composted manures from horse stables, where equine parasites are a problem, really slow earthworms and dung beetles.
Merci, Peggy for revealing the ivermectin/skin relationship.
