    Sub-prophylactic dose of HCQ to induce immunity

 

These and other studies suggest that using intermediate (sub-prophylactic) doses of HCQ, such as 800–1600 mg, should allow immunity acquisition by exposure and possible natural infection, while protecting the lungs and other tissues.

The concept here is to take a small dose of HCQ…(see article for ideas on how to determine the correct personal dose) and then once symptoms of Covid are present to use IVM.

“take a small dose of HCQ…(see article for ideas on how to determine the correct personal dose) and then once symptoms of Covid are present to use IVM.”

 

Thank you very much for this!  I am in a position right now to get things like HCQ and Ivm…I am in a “malaria” area where these things are over the counter.   I was trying to ask this question earlier.

Is there anything else I should pick up? I know Chris M. was discussing some other possibilities but I don’t recall what they were….

    Sub-prophylactic dose of HCQ to induce immunity

I like the concept, but the doses they cite are puzzling.

The British National Formulary opines the normal dosage for HCQ is 200-400mg/day with a maximum safe dose of 6.5 mg/kg per day, or around 600mg for a 200 pound patient.

How are 800-1600mg doses “sub-prophylactic”?  Is this a total intake over a 5-7 day loading period?

    Sub-prophylactic dose of HCQ to induce immunity

Ahh, I see it now: “The person takes the loading dose of HCQ of 5 mg/kg per day for 2–4 days. No maintenance is needed for at least two months.”

Note to those who wish to try this…  Do NOT take 800-1600mg HCQ in one go!  400mg/day for 2-4 days appears to be the proper protocol.

This appears similar to the Zelenko prophylaxis protocol:

https://vladimirzelenkomd.com/zelenko-prophylaxis-protocol/

“Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) 200mg 1 time a day for 5 days, then 1 time a week until a safe and efficacious vaccine becomes available”

I’m actually on this now.  Just finished my 5 day loading.  I actually like his 200mg/week maintenance.  I know HCQ has a long half-life, but don’t believe I’d feel comfortable coasting two months.  Dr Z’s kinder/gentler 200mg/day 5 day loading would reduce the risk of side effects too.

I can’t get HCQ in Canada. There is Quinine Pills 1000 mg, which might be an equivalent. Does anyone know if it can be used as a substitute for HCQ and in which doses?
