Got COVID? Treating it ASAP is key for best outcomes.

The short story is DO NOT WAIT for symptoms. As soon as you know or strongly suspect you have COVID, start treatment IMMEDIATELY with all three drugs. It doesn't matter if you are a low-risk or high risk patient. It doesn't matter what age you are. If you have COVID or even think you probably have COVID, start treatment immediately.

The single biggest mistake doctors make today is "I'll only treat you if you are a high risk patient" or "Let's wait for symptoms before we treat you" or "you are too young, you probably won't get sick."

In Mexico, they start treatment if they suspect COVID, and don't even wait for the PCR results to come back. Their hospitals are empty.

These treatments with repurposed drugs below are all extremely safe and well tolerated and even if you are a healthy teenager, you are better off treating the disease aggressively than sitting back with no defenses.

One physician confided to me, "I made the mistake early on NOT to treat a 17 years old but treated her parents …Long story short 3 months later she developed Tourette’s from COVID."

The sooner COVID is treated, the easier it is to stop and reverse. You can avoid having long haul COVID if you treat early and aggressively.

If you have telltale COVID symptoms, do not wait for a test result before treatment. If your COVID test comes back negative, no harm done.

The biggest problem you'll have is convincing your doctor to pay attention to the evidence on the table (and the results of every other doctor who has ever used these drugs in combination in multiple countries) rather than following the guidance of the WHO, NIH, CDC, EMA, etc. You can do much better than the statistics, but to do that, you must arm yourself with the knowledge you will need to get the drugs you need.

List of doctors

Unfortunately, your doctor is unlikely to know how to treat your correctly. Here is a list of telemedicine providers who know their stuff:

Drugs used for COVID infection

Here are the drugs/supplements I recommend for acute COVID infections. This list was last updated July 25, 2021 and supersedes documents with earlier dates. Take all drugs (that you can access) IMMEDIATELY after you suspect a COVID infection (except as indicated). They are all safe and do not interact with each other.

  1. Fluvoxamine (luvox) 50mg bid x 14day. If not available, use fluoxetine (prozac) 30mg qd x 14 days. If already on an antidepressant, consider talking to your doctor about switching. Avoid caffeine while on fluvoxamine (you'll be way too wired).
  2. Ivermectin .4 mg/kg every 3 days until symptoms resolved. Take with a meal or right after a meal for best absorption. The every 3 days dosing is from Ram Yogendra.
  3. Inhaled budesonide: 400 µg per actuation (two puffs to be taken twice per day; total dose per day 1600 µg) x 7 days (or until resolution of respiratory symptoms). Use this ONLY if you have respiratory symptoms. Most people won't need it (if you started treatment early).
  4. NAC: 600mg/day for 14 days. This mitigates the damage caused by the spike protein.
  5. Vitamin D3: 15,000 IU/day for 14 days to lower inflammation
  6. Pravastatin: 20mg x 14 days (recommended by Bruce Patterson's lab; works great for long haul COVID cases)
  7. enovid.  This drug is made by SaNOtize . It probably won't be available in your area, but it appears to be effective.
  8. Interferon Lambda: If you can get a single injection of Interferon Lambda (made by Eiger), that is the drug with the largest effect size and best safety profile. It is currently only available in clinical trials. It should be taken ASAP after infection for best results. It drastically reduces d-dimer which is an excellent indication that has a dramatic effect in lowering blood clotting (and likely inflammation). You basically will not get hospitalized if you get this drug. If you only can take one drug, this is the drug to take. If you can get access to this drug early, everything else is optional.
  9. Camostat: 200mg taken orally, 4 times daily, for 7 days will absolutely reduce your chance of long haul COVID symptoms and reduce your risk of hospitalization. It isn't approved in the US, but is approved in other countries. It will not change your time to recover. It's about preventing you from developing long-haul COVID symptoms and severe disease. It's an antiviral so take ASAP.

Note that in my opinion based on insider information, the five most impactful drugs for COVID are (in approximate order of effectiveness when given early):

  1. Interferon lambda
  2. Fluvoxamine
  3. Fluoxetine (Prozac); use if fluvoxamine isn't available (30mg per day)
  4. Ivermectin
  5. Inhaled budesonide (see this tweet)
  6. Camostat

That list was made on July 26, 2021. It will be 4 months before the rest of the world figures it out.

The dosing for fluvoxamine is from the Seftel study, the dosing for ivermectin is from the FLCCC Guidelines, and the dosing for budesonide is from the sole budesonide early treatment study. Start all three drugs immediately at the same time.

Symptoms should start to reverse in 24 hours if you started treatment early.

Drugs used for long haul COVID

Bruce Patterson’s long haul COVID treatment relies on four drugs. The dosing depends on what your bloodwork shows (based on the Cytokine 14 panel available at covidlonghaulers.com), so the dosages are averages.

  1. Fluvoxamine: 50mg BID
  2. Ivermectin: .2mg/kg every 3 days
  3. Pravastatin: 20mg (substitute for fractal kinase inhibitor)
  4. Maraviroc 300mg PO BID. This reduces CCR5 and takes about 5 days to work.

Drugs to use pre- and Post-Vaccine Inflammatory Syndrome (PVIS)

Ideally start this before you vaccinate. Less ideally, start this immediately after vaccination. The longer you wait, the more likelihood of permanent damage to heart, lungs, and brain. Once those tissues are scarred from inflammation, they will never heal. This is why many long-haulers never regain full function. It's exactly the same story with vaccine victims. I strongly suggest you watch this 8 minute video featuring Dr. Charles Hoffe.

  1. Fluvoxamine: up to 50mg BID
  2. Ivermectin: .2mg/kg every 3 days
  3. Prednisone: 5mg for inflammation. Note: this is a low amount because if you give more you start to affect the immune system which is problematic because you want the macrophages to clear out the spike protein
  4. NAC: 600mg/day for 14 days. This mitigates the damage caused by the spike protein.
  5. Inhaled budesonide: 400 µg per actuation (two puffs to be taken twice per day; total dose per day 1600 µg) x 7 days (or until resolution of respiratory symptoms). Use this ONLY if you have respiratory symptoms. Most people won't need it (if you started treatment early).

Other options include going to covidlonghaulers.com and getting tested and they'll prescribe drugs based on your test results.

Or check out the FLCCC I-Recover protocol; it can be used for PVIS as well (as they note in the text).

Detailed summary of the evidence supporting the use of fluvoxamine for COVID
The tl;dr is that every piece of evidence we have ever seen (observational studies, randomized trials, doctor experiences) is positive. There are no cases where fluvoxamine made things worse. If treated early enough with fluvoxamine, patients can recover and completely avoid long-haul COVID issues.
