    Melatonin vs Covid – doctors say effective in early treatment and prophylaxis

Here is a very detailed article about the use of melatonin to treat early-symptom covid (and prophylaxis) at home (thanks again to Covid19Crusher!). It is a report of an international teleconference hosted by Dr. Harold Pupko, President of the North York branch of the Ontario Medical Association in Canada.  The speakers/debaters were:  Dr. Russel Reiter, PhD of San Antonio, Professor of Cell Biology; Dr. Richard Neel of Devine, Texas; Dr. Rafael Castillo of The Philippines; Dr. Gregory Brown, of Canada, and Dr. Daniel Cardinalli, of Argentina. Results of trials in Spain were also discussed. (Thank God that Canadian doctors are finally waking up to the importance of early treatment! And drawing on the experience of colleagues abroad!)

The article is from a local Texas paper so it focuses more on the local doctor, Dr Neel, but there is a heap of solid info in it about doses etc. — far more than just the usual “up to 9 mg to go to sleep at night” and with no side effects except drowsiness — I highly recommend reading it.

For those of us who cannot access Ivermectin legally, this is another cheap, OTC and, most importantly, self-empowering weapon in our home arsenal. (Quick! Canada!! Let’s ban it!!! — sarc.)

Dr. Neel introduced as world’s leading expert in treating COVID-19 with melatonin clinically

    Thanks Canuck!

I recall posting last year – likely on the HCQ vs deep state thread, the original paper that where the realization of melatonin’s effectiveness was observed.  What I found most interesting was that the discovery of efficacy was entirely unexpected – a US hospital system was correlating treatment variables to outcomes, and the researchers noticed that patients on ventilators given melatonin to help aid their sleep cycles had dramatically better outcomes than those not given melatonin.

What I have not tried is taking it during the day, as is suggested by Dr. Neel in the article posted.  Has anyone tried this?

Only 10mg at bedtime, not day.

    Melatonin vs Covid – doctors say effective in early treatment and prophylaxis

Several months ago I got melatonin tablets in a range of strength.  Ignoring the advice to start <1 mg and gradually increase, not being sick at the time, I took a 12 mg tablet. Bad idea, I had wrenching gut symptoms for several days.

It was a couple weeks before I dared half a 3 mg tablet.  In about a week I found the 5 mg bi-layer (half slow release) worked best for sleep.  I added another 3 mg on the front end, and during an active covid bout upped that to 12 mg (without the time release). Getting great sleep and dreams now.  No more half-awake tossing and turning throughout the night.  I am 68 and melatonin levels decrease with age (this also affecting the immune system?).
