My sole purpose of sharing this information is to be informed about a possible prevention and treatment for COVID-19 for my friends and family.
- What products I bought and where I got them
- How I figured my specific dosage
- What I found about accuracy of dosage
- My first dose experience
- My dosage strategy. To prevent or treat?
- What about vitamins?
As promised, here is a follow up to Part 1 and 2 of my information gathering on Ivermectin’s effectiveness as a prevention and treatment for COVID-19. Another thing I wanted to say is that I am NOT an anti-vaxxer. I strive to be an INFORMED vaccinator. None of this is sent to replace or undermine any other form(s) of treatment.
What products I bought and where I got them:
If you are reading into Part 3 of my info gathering, then you are probably wanting to know what I have personally done. This section details that.
I think getting a doctor to write me a prescription for Ivermectin would be the best route. If I could get a doctor to quickly and inexpensively write me a prescription for Ivermectin, I would. Once I reached my own personal decision point, I went to Tractor Supply Company and bought IverCare (ivermectin paste 1.87%) in the equine section of the store for $7.99. Along with Ivercare, there was Zimectrin for $10.99, Durvet for $2.89 and Bimectrin for $4.99. All these brands had Ivermectin paste 1.87% strength. They were all just sitting there on the shelf. I did NOT consider buying anything that had something in combination with Ivermectin.
To note, there was an FDA warning posted at TSC entitled: “Do Not Use in Humans as a Treatment for COVID-19”. It had much of the same information available here:
The next day I went to Family, Farm and Home to see what they had. They had several brands as well from $2.99 to $8.99. I did not buy any from FFH. Also, there was NO FDA warning note at FFH. Then I again went back to TSC and bought the Bimectrin brand to have something different for comparison purposes.
Misc info on the boxes:
- All the brands but one contained 6.08 grams of medicine. The IverCare brand contained 7.30 grams.
- All of the brands are oral pastes meaning you squeeze out your dosage and take it. If you are a horse, you just squeeze it into your mouth. Some have apple flavor, so you might like it!
- Of special importance to me is the following note on the back of the box: “Stallions may be treated without adversely affecting their fertility.” lol!
- The shelf life on Ivermectin is at least 18 months! The Bimectin I bought expires on 09/22 which is 18+ months from now. This allows me to purchase several tubes to keep on hand.
- Ivermectin needs to be stored at 68 F to 77 F. Again, no special treatment required.
- This is a snippet from the back of the box about dosage: “…the recommended dose rate of 91 mcg ivermectin per lb body weight.” Remember, those instructions are for horses, not humans, so the dosage information on the box is NOT applicable… normally. However, in this instance the dosage is the EXACT SAME for humans as called for in the FLCCC I-MASK+ Protocol (detailed in Part 2.) More information on how I figured my specific dosage below.
How I figured my specific dosage:
The below information on how I figured my specific dosage is based on the table for the FLCCC I-MASK+ Protocol as found here:
Remember what the back of the IverCare box said for horses? “…the recommended dose rate of 91 mcg ivermectin per lb body weight.” The FLCCC I-MASK+ Protocol calls for .09 mg/lb for humans. When you convert 91 mcg to mg you get… tada! … .09 mg which is the recommended dose for humans per the protocol. The dosage of Ivermectin per pound of body weight is the SAME for horses as humans.
Ok, so I’m 210 lbs, which means my dosage is 18 mg. Now what? Well, this is the part that I really don’t love, but it will have to work. Each of these tubes is marked in 250 lb increments. So, what I did was divide the 250 lb increments into 8 marks (lines and dots) which equates to 31.25 pounds for each mark (250 / 8 = 31.25). At 210 lbs, I figure 7 marks is a little over 210 lbs, but I’m good with that.
I labeled a tube with my name and my dosage (7 marks). As long as I take 7 marks, then I figure I’m good.
What I found about accuracy of dosage:
These are plastic dosing syringes with pound markings in 250 pound increments for horses. The lowest mark is at 250 lbs. I am about 210 lbs. So, even the lowest mark is still to much for me. I started to think about how accurate of a dosage should I take? Then I read this from the World Health Organization. I also posted this in Part 2 of my findings:
WHO article from 2016 “Toxicological evaluation of certain veterinary drug residues in food”. The Ivermectin section is on pages 49-73.
Here is the important snippet from page 62:
“Oral doses of ivermectin of up to 120 mg were well tolerated by human subjects. No adverse effects on human health, in particular upon the neurological system, were identified.”
So, I realized that with my dosage being 18 mg (7 marks), and testing with “No adverse effects on human health” was achieved at 120 mg or 6.7 times my recommended dose, a little off is NOT going to be bad for me AT ALL.
I set the applicator to my dosage (7 marks) and squeezed out the Ivermectin on a spoon. It is basically the consistency of toothpaste or acrylic paint. It is a good thing I bought the one with “Apple Flavor”, because it tasted like battery acid WITH a hint of apple instead of just battery acid. It tasted nasty, but not so much that anyone should have a problem.
My long term dosage strategy. To prevent or treat?
So, based on the information I gathered, Ivermectin is reported to be a prevention from getting COVID-19 and for treating COVID-19 once you get it. My first thoughts were, I’m going to take it as a prevention! I’m not getting sick! So, according to the chart, as a PREVENTION, you take 1 dose on day 1, another does on day 3 and 1 dose every 2 weeks…FOREVER. That’s a ton of dosing and a ton of Ivermectin! At this point, I am really surprised that it is even available on the shelves still. I thought by now that either it would be sold out OR removed by the FDA. Both may still happen. If you plan on taking this route for you and a family, that really starts getting crazy.
What I’ve decided is to take a dose on day 1 and another on day 3 to be a “guinea pig” for my family. Then, I won’t take it unless I need it IF I get sick. This makes sense to me as it should solve all the sourcing issues with getting enough Ivermectin to use it as a prevention. I’ll have it on hand for my family if we need it. Also Dr. Pierre Kory stated that there is no evidence yet of long term, repeated taking of Ivermectin. Yes, it has been used for YEARS on billions of people, but that is for 1-2 doses only to treat parasites. Taking Ivermectin every 2 weeks isn’t needed for parasites.
What about vitamins?
Take them. The end. Honestly, vitamins are not the focus of my information gathering at this time. If I get sick, I plan on taking the listed vitamins along with Ivermectin.
- No medicine is THE answer. Our only true hope of salvation is found in Jesus Christ.
- I am not an anti-vaxxer. None of this information is to replace or undermine any other form(s) of treatment.
- Growing, significant evidence that Ivermectin is a prevention for COVID-19.
- Growing, significant evidence that Ivermectin is a treatment for COVID-19.
- The current thought is that Ivermectin’s success is due to its ability to block replication of COVID-19.
- There is NOT yet enough evidence on the safety of long term use of Ivermectin for prevention.
- Ivermectin has VERY minimal side effects as proven from billions of doses over decades of time.
- Veterinarian grade Ivermectin is NOT made to the same low impurity standard as human grade Ivermectin.
- The FDA recommends NOT to take animal grade Ivermectin.
- Animal grade Ivermectin is readily available in large quantities over the counter for very little money.
- Ivermectin lasts 18+ months when stored properly at 68 F to 77 F making it ideal to keep on hand.
I plan on reporting my experience after my second dose in 2 days. Other than that, I do not currently plan another release of information on this topic. If you find something inaccurate about what I have shared, PLEASE let me know!
