I appreciate the effort Steve Kirsch and Alexandros Marinos have spent sifting through what I called a "turd of a trial" on twitter.

Once you have a trial where the researchers are not interested in showing a signal, then you have a serious problem - since for a trial to show a signal it has to be structured to find that signal.

If researchers are not interested in phrasing the trial to show a signal - then it is a crap trial - unlikely to be of much use in terms of finding a signal (and finding the conditions - dosing/timing - under which a signal can appear).

If you are on reddit, as a long hauler who has used IVM for post-covid19 anosmia, you could address some of the skeptics over in this post:

https://www.reddit.com/r/IntellectualDarkWeb/comments/ucexm5/why_do_my_dogs_smell_like_orange_slices_the/ Why do my dogs smell like orange slices? The latest research on how COVID messes with smell - USA TODAY - (April 24, 2022) - article talks about the need for anosmia research and treatments but fails to talk about the treatments that work reliably - like Ivermectin

 

It seems some folks have a hard time believing - and will bring up that "IVM has no benefit" (when that comes from studies with underpowered data on "mortality benefit" i.e. studies done in areas where placebo was taking IVM, or study not continued long enough to show disparity) - when "mortality benefit" has no relation to a discussion on prophylaxis of anosmia reversal.

That is, the skeptics are using their brainwashed talking points from mainstream media reporting (that leverages those two flawed/fraudulent Lopez-Medina/TOGETHER trials) - and are extrapolating it to all other indications for IVM - which is a serious overreaction.

The odd thing is even many people who are suffering actively oppose mention of IVM.

One would think when faced with stonewalling by regular doctors who don't have the experience, they would start to question and look for other options.

So if they are behaving this way, that tells you the degree of brainwashing and it's effect.

So how can one blame the fact-checkers and others.

It is as if a subset of people cannot help falling under the brainwashing (just like a subset of people are highly susceptible to hypnosis, while others are less so).

Thanks for the feedback.

For the other 5% leftover, you can wait a week and complete the IVM 3 days course (refresher):

  • IVM 0.4mg/kg bodyweight per day - for 3 days

If that doesn't work - maybe do the full Gustavo Aguirre Chang paper protocol - i.e. including the Aspirin and the other supplements mentioned there.

Yes, one does hear comments from people who have used IVM for flu and other viral infections - and they report it helped them.

So it would not be surprising.

 

Prophylaxis with IVM seems to work.

However, I have seen with Omicron that while a family's close contacts did not get symptoms day1-7 - but they did show some post-day8 hyperinflammatory signals (some fatigue, another with elevated pulse rate).

These were fixed with steroids-at-day8.

So I would say that IVM - plus a backup of steroids-at-day8 to prevent post-day8 hyperinflammatory stage or the occasional cases of "creeping inflammation" in "mild" cases - in such cases steroids-at-day8 prevents this too.

 

So both Ivermectin - and steroids - make for an even more cautious treatment safety net.

DISCLAIMER: please discuss the suggestions below with your physician.

 

I have a few questions:

  • where is this protocol from - is this the Gustavo Aguirre Chang protocol for anosmia reversal? (earliest paper on anosmia reversal using IVM was by his group in Peru)

  • how many days of Ivermectin have you taken? If you can list out the days in sequence and the dose you took that day - so I have a clear picture of time and dosing

 

In my experience, just Ivermectin alone will do the trick - one can try the other things if full recovery is not achieved obviously.

But for most post-covid19 anosmia cases, there is 100pct anosmia reversal using this protocol:

  • Ivermectin 0.4mg/kg bodyweight per day - for 3 days

Can split dose morning/evening or breakfast/lunch/dinner.

Doses should be taken with fatty meal or meal - for 2.5x better bioavailability.

NOTE: taking ivermectin on empty stomach is better for situations where you have worms in stomach etc. - but for covid19 situations, it is better to take with fatty meal - since you want better systemic availability of Ivermectin - not just in digestive tract. Ivermectin is not water soluble as much - and better absorbed if taken with a fatty meal.

 

With the protocol above - I have seen 6 consecutive cases of post-covid19 residual anosmia - reverse 100pct within 1-2 days.

NOTE: this means this is a highly reliable treatment for post-covid19 anosmia - if it can reverse 6 sequential cases within 1-2 days i.e. in a time synchronized manner.

Prior to this had seen 5-7 cases of anosmia reversal with IVM - but this was retrospective i.e. I could not do anything about it - i.e. was reported later. But in the 6 cases above it was - Ivermectin was suggested explicitly as treatment for their anosmia - they wanted to try it - and it worked for all 6.

For one who had partial reversal - waited a week - and did same 3 day refresher course - for full recovery.

For long term anosmia cases - like yours - one may require a refresher course or two.

The way to do it is do the 3 day course. Usually 100pct reversal. But for some cases, and also more likely for chronic cases, if have partial reversal only, then wait a week. Then do a 3 day course again.

About 1 in 20 people have a reaction to Ivermectin - i.e. are dizzy (because of low blood pressure etc.) - for these dose can be reduced. But some will not want to take it at all - and in such cases can avoid.

However since you have already taken the doses you mentioned without issue - you probably will not have an issue with 0.4mg/kg dosing. If you feel visual disturbances etc. can reduce dose - but most people tolerate the 0.4mg/kg just fine.

 

So my suggestion would be to skip the other stuff - just do the Ivermectin 3 day course at dosing suggested above.

Then if partial, wait a week (since we don't want to take too much for too many days). And then after a week do the 3 day course again.

If that doesn't do it - then wait a week again, and do the 3 day course again.

So are you taking IVM and Aspirin both?

Or did you use the Aspirin first?

 

I ask because Ivermectin has a near 100% anosmia reversal rate at this dosing:

  • Ivermectin 0.4mg/kg bodyweight per day - for 3 days

Usually anosmia reversal starts to be noticed within the first 12 hours of starting the course.

Within 1-2 days is usually at 100%.

 

However, Gustavo Aguirre Chang study on anosmia reversal from end of 2020 used Ivermectin + Aspirin for 100% recovery in 21 patient study.

There they used Aspirin as well.

So it could be possible that Aspirin alone may help.

 

Gustavo Aguirre Chang's group in Peru has earlier posted 100pct recovery with 1 or 2 cycles of ivm + aspirin:

But in my experience, just Ivermectin alone can reverse anosmia within 1-2 days.

At least for post-covid19 patients.

For those who have had anosmia for many months - a refresher dose may be required after 1 week.

But perhaps adding Aspirin may help as well.

Anyone done the any of the FLCCC protocols? by weenyhutjunior in Ivermectin2

[–]stereomatch 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

What date was day1 of symptoms for you and your boyfriend?

Do you have an oximeter - should get one or borrow from a friend - usually cost $20-30.

Omicron typically has 3 days from exposure to day1 of symptoms:

  • 1 - exposure

  • 2

  • 3 - day1 of symptoms (live viral load is at max)

Omicron typically has 5 days from exposure to day1 of symptoms:

  • 1 - exposure

  • 2

  • 3

  • 4-5 - day1 of symptoms (live viral load is at max)

 

The FLCCC protocol mentions Ivermectin and other drugs for day1 onwards.

Adding Famotidine (Pepsid) will help:

  • Famotidine 20mg+20mg per day - for 5-10 days

 

Day1 onwards can be handled many ways:

  • IVM + Famotidine

  • H1/H2 blocker antihistamines

  • Fluvoxamine

 

However, steroids-at-day7-8 is the lifesaver.

You don't want to start steroids much earlier than day7-8 - and not much later (since want to catch the hyperinflammation which usually becomes visible day7-8 onwards.

 

These are the signals for hyperinflammatory stage post-day7-8:

  • oximeter daily decline

  • pulse rate in 90s or 100+ while at rest (even without fever)

  • anomalous fever returning at day7-8 ("hyperinflammatory fever")

All these are signs that steroids-at-day7-8 needs to be started.

Usually Prednisolone 40mg per day for 1 week, then taper to zero over next week.

However when start steroids should watch for the signals above reversing next day i.e. oximeter readings improving.

If they are improving next day, you know the steroids dose is sufficient - and usually within 3-4 days the patient will be at oximeter 99 and feeling good.

If by next day do not see a clear improvement happening - this means the steroids dose is not sufficient - and need to escalate to 60mg and then 80mg per day - or higher that works.

 

You mentioned your boyfriend has 101 fever - and is "out of breath".

Usually during day1-7 (i.e. prior to hyperinflammatory stage) - the patient is not really "out of breath".

So this is making me wonder if the boyfriend may be in his post-day8 stage. If that is the case, the "fever" may be "hyperinflammatory fever" and the "out of breath" may be the post-day8 oximeter decline.

If this the case, then he needs to be started on Prednisolone (as described above) by your early treatment doctor.

If he is in the post-day8 stage, then at the right dose he will rapidly recover to oximeter 99.

 

His oximeter/pulse rate needs to be monitored - to see if it is indicating a post-day8 type of situation.

You need to examine your timelines - and establish the day1 of first symptoms of each.

For example he may have gotten day1 of symptoms first.

How many days later did you show day1 of symptoms?

If it is 3 days (it is probably Omicron) or 4-5 days (probably Delta).

But after day1 appeared - how many days has it been since then - is it now past day7-8? If so he may need a precautionary protocol of Prednisolone (steroids) as described above.

 

So in summary, I find the boyfriend's fever + "out of breath" suggestive that he may be in post-day8 hyperinflammatory stage - and thus may needs his early treatment doctor to start him on steroids before there is too much oximeter decline or lung issues.

This can be confirmed by checking his oximeter readings - are they at 98-99?

If they are below 97 - then he may be in post-day8 stage.

If they are below 95 or 93 (i.e. he cannot raise oximeter levels above that even with deep breathing) - then that is also indicative of post-day8 stage - and possibly is at day10 or so.

In such a case an early treatment doctor will start aggressive steroids to try to quell the hyperinflammation quickly - and may also start him on Cyproheptadine 8mg - 3 times a day (will make sleepy and only wake up for meals) - Cyproheptadine should be tapered off and should not be stopped suddenly as may cause more problems. And Inhaled Budesonide (rotacaps) - 4-5 times a day.

Moderate doses of Magnesium and for long term use some Vitamin K2 is often advised to avoid hypercalcemia (though during covid19 may want to skip the Vitamin K2 to avoid clotting).

Bill Gates' GAVI was running ads against Ivermectin - so probably he is not interested.

However, he does have an investment in Medincell I think - which develops subcutaneous injection of drugs for long lasting effect. He has funded for contraception.

However Medincell also is working on a subcutaneous form of Ivermectin for slow release for covid19.

I have also wondered elsewhere what would be the need for a subcutaneous form - when oral form does well. Unless it is for a captive population - for example inmates of a prison etc. who may refuse to take oral pills.

@spelllingchamp

Sorry for the late reply.

Yes, that is a concern - some have issue with it from the start.

So it adds an extra layer of logistics to handle for an outpatient doctor - more monitoring and more abrupt change of medications (if patient cannot tolerate Fluvoxamine then have to fall back to steroids-by-day8).

However, I asked this of Dr Angela Rieirsen on twitter - and she said that a one week course should not make dependent.

However, we have direct feedback from Dr Syed Haider who is using it as his main line of defence i.e. ivermectin + fluvoxamine - and the idea being that this avoids need for steroids-at-day8 (I pressed him on this).

Though I am not sure of the edge cases - i.e. if start Fluvoxamine late or later patient arrives.

Dr Syed Haider also addressed the dependence issue on Fluvoxamine in a tweet response - and he also is less concerned about that.

But he has said from the start that some proportion of patients do have issue with Fluvoxamine i.e. cannot continue with it etc.

 

Fluvoxamine has been reported by some on reddit as does have impact on libido and ejaculation.

(In fact it is used by urologists to treat premature ejaculation in men it seems)

Here are some comments about difficulty weaning off SSRIs:

Here is an account of the early history of how Fluvoxamine became a drug candidate for covid19 by stereomatch in Ivermectin2

[–]stereomatch[S,M] [score hidden] stickied comment (0 children)

(continued from above) ..

From the feedback Dr Syed Haider has provided - he has prescribed ivermectin + fluvoxamine to hundreds of patients - it is becoming clear that if you give ivermectin + fluvoxamine there is near zero progression to the hyperinflammatory stage post-day8.

 

This is very intriguing, because the single biggest source of tension with the traditional treatment of covid19 - ivermectin + famotidine + vitamins - and then steroids-at-day7-8 is the timing of the steroids.

When a patient comes to a doctor while other drugs cocktail can be started at any time, the steroids needs to be carefully timed - not too early and not too late.

Complicating things further, with Delta variant and new variants for vaccinated patients, the timeline can sometimes be accelerated - ie day1-7 can be silent/asymptomatic.

What Dr Syed Haider is saying is that if given ivermectin + fluvoxamine early there is no oximeter dip ie need for steroids at day8.

This could simplify treatment - a one-time protocol with no timing complexity.

The only problem is that with Fluvoxamine (being an anti-depressant) a portion of patients do have issue with it's use. Which adds to the risk of patient non-compliance.

I have not used Fluvoxamine or pushed it precisely because of this risk.

But with the recent reconfirmation by Dr Syed Haider about the potential for avoiding steroids altogether if ivermectin + fluvoxamine is given to all - it sounds attractive. Those patients who don't comply because of side-effects can be switched to traditional steroids-at-day7-8 protocol.

In any case the negative sense around anti-depressants is what is holding Fluvoxamine back - otherwise it would be used by many more of the early treatment doctors. What is hindering it's spread is that early treatment doctors already know how to treat reliably - ie prevent 100pct from progressing to need for oxygen etc.

When they already have a protocol that works using drugs that have good acceptance by patients, many have been leery of testing Fluvoxamine. Primarily because they don't have a good feel for what to watch for etc (that they have already developed for ivermectin + steroids).

But we may see more interest, and early treatment doctors starting to use Fluvoxamine in more patients.

For this reason, I would request Dr Been u/mastcell to interview Dr Syed Haider once again to establish the parameters around prescription, what to watch for, what to do if patient want to stop fluvoxamine suddenly - what alternate to switch to - until these questions are resolved we will continue to have reluctance to adding Fluvoxamine.

 

Ivermectin vs. Fluvoxamine

So how does Fluvoxamine compare to Ivermectin?

Ivermectin seems to be very effective as pre-exposure and post-exposure prophylaxis.

That is, if Ivermectin is given before day1 of symptoms (viral peak occurs at day1 also) - then there is a good chance the person will not experience symptomatic disease, or asymptomatic progression to hypoxia (which can happen in covid19 if not treated i.e. you can have relatively mild day1-7 but then slow decline in oximeter reading after that if are not given steroids-at-day8.

So Ivermectin is effective for reducing logistical collapse of households if it is given to all eligible close contacts (pregnant, breastfeeding, and below 15kg weight - should avoid - and may instead do nasal flushing, gargling to reduce viral inoculum).

I have also observed that in household after household, if ivermectin is given as soon as index case emerges, almost no one else gets the disease.

In contrast, with Delta and new variants, whole households experience logistical collapse as everyone gets covid19 from the index case. Typical 4-5 days between cases (gestation period).

In addition, Ivermectin is very effective for reversing anosmia - 0.4mg/kg bodyweight per day for 3 days - seems to reverse anosmia (taste/smell loss) within 1-2 days. Usually bynnext day there is palpable improvement and it keeps improving after that. If recovery is partial, repeat after 1 week. Can also add Aspirin 75mg per day (Gustavo Aguirre Chang protocol).

 

However, once day1 has arrived (patient is showing symptoms) - the viral peak has already arrived, and the bulk of the viral debris that would be created has been created, then even if a patient is given ivermectin post-day1 - that still does not prevent some dip in oximeter readings from happening in the patient starting at day7-8.

For this reason, as I have mentioned before, steroids-at-day7-8 should be adopted in order to prevent organ damage and long hauler symptoms.

This strategy matches the view of Dr Shankara Chetty (who did not have access to Ivermectin and uses H1/H2 blocker antihistamines and steroids-at-day8). His view on day8 matches that outlined by the FLCCC MATH+ protocol from 1 year ago. The FLCCC has had a clear explanation of viral timeline - which informed it's guidance for steroids use - not use much earlier than day8, and don't start much later than day8.

So with Ivermectin, if you start it after patient has shown symptoms, then even if you are continuing to give Ivermectin and Famotidine and vitamins, still the patient will show some oximeter dip around day7-8 (earlier with Delta variant and in the vaccinated - where day1-7 may be silent/asymptomatic).

Thus Ivermectin + Famotidine needs to be accompanied by steroids-at-day7-8 (or on signs of daily oximeter declines, or elevated heart rate in 90s or 100+ even at rest and without fever). All these are indications for starting steroids.

 

What Fluvoxamine seems to offer is greater effectiveness than Ivermectin for the day1 onwards period.

While Ivermectin does not always prevent progress to hypoxia at day8, Fluvoxamine (from trial results, but also from feedback from early treatment doctors like Dr Syed Haider) seems to prevent progression to hypoxia at day8 as well.

This means that Fluvoxamine occupies a unique value proposition - as a possible replacement for steroids (if Fluvoxamine is given early).

I have not used Fluvoxamine, so have not had a chance to study if early use of Fluvoxamine completely prevents any oximeter declines, and thus would on it's own be an effective preventative against organ damage, and long hauler syndrome (as steroids-at-day8 seem to be).

 

Fluvoxamine may have potential for pre-exposure prophylaxis, but it's dosage for that is not established. Plus there may be opposition to chronic use of Fluvoxamine just as prophylaxis - esp if a safer alternative in Ivermectin is available.

I am also not aware if Fluvoxamine has potential for post-exposure prophylaxis - but it certainly will prevent progression to hypoxia. Just as administering Fluvoxamine at day1 onwards seems to do, similar results should follow if Fluvoxamine is given a day or two before day1 of symptoms.

While, Fluvoxamine retains some risk - some patients cannot tolerate it and may stop using it - therefore alternative safety net should be in place (steroids) if patient stops complying.

One strategy could be to start all patients on Fluvoxamine, and be ready for steroids-at-day8 - then at day7-8 confirm if patient is complying so far with Fluvoxamine protocol - and if is not then to administer the usual steroids-at-day8.
