Drugs with reported efficacy for COVID--Meryl Nass, MD. November 16, 2021

Ivermectin 0.4-0.6 mg/kg daily for 5 days depending on how sick you are and which variant you experience, take with food with fat

Hydroxychloroquine 200 mg x2 breakfast and lunch day one, then 200 mg 2x daily for 6 more days. Take with or before food

Doxycycline 100 mg 2x/day with large meal, avoid sun for a week or azithromycin 250 mg 2 on day 1, then 1 daily for 4 more days or a little longer

Aspirin 325 mg/day helps block blood clotting through its inhibition of platelet activation.  Some people who form clots anyway may benefit from additional blood thinners targeting other clotting mechanisms, such as lovenox.

Vitamin D--try to achieve a blood level of 60 which should reduce risk for all respiratory illneses and likely other medical conditions

Vitamin C 1000mg 3 or 4 times daily

Zinc 30-60 mg daily

Melatonin 12 mg at bedtime

For early lung problems within the first week:  inhaled albuterol and dexamethazone, cheapest to buy as vials to use with a nebulizer.  

Newer approaches that can be added to the old or substituted (but I have not used all of them and there are no published protocols)

After one week of illness you take steroids (prednisone or methylprepdnisolone or others) orally, about 40-60 mg/day for continuing lung problems and inflammation that occurs throughout the body.

For mast cell/allergy syndrome, use (OTC) both H1 and H2 blockers.  Recommended are Pepcid 40-80 mg 3 times daily and cyproheptadine (Periactin) 6 mg 3x daily, which also blocks the serotonin response. 

Anti-androgens also have efficacy.  FLCCC suggests you use both spironolactone and dutasteride or finasteride. 

Celebrex (celecoxib) plus pepcid is another good combination

Metformin 500 mg once daily reduces high insulin levels and high blood sugar.

N-acetyl cysteine 500 mg per day will help mop up the debris caused by inflammation. OTC and still available, though FDA proposes to take it off OTC status.

Tricor (fenofibrate) 145 mg per day helps break down infiltrates containing a lot of lipids via emulsification and lets your body heal quicker from cytokine storm.

Fluconazole--mentioned by Ryan Cole, and beneficial when there is a Candida albicans secondary infection.  I don't have any evidence it works as a direct treatment for coronaviruses.



Bromhexine seems to be a good drug, but not available in the US. May be OTC in countries where available.

Many of the drugs (about half are OTC. for the others, get a doctor affiliated with FLCCC or AAPS or possibly AFLDS (which is being sued over providing drugs)

I really dislike the pushing of Luvox for treating Covid. If someone has never taken a neurotoxin, the best thing in the world is to keep them that way. These drugs change the brain and diminish feelings and emotions, permanently.

Risk of suicide is a problem when first starting. The Columbine killer was on Luvox, and while this is a rare side effect, please understand your emotional life is being warped when taking it.

The "studies" supporting this for Covid were not well-designed, and had very small sample numbers. People act like there is no downside to this drug, but there is. Having the hundreds of thousands (millions?, everyone?) of people who will get Covid start taking a psych drug is a terrible intervention.

"Doxycycline 100 mg 2x/day with large meal, avoid sun for a week or azithromycin 250 mg 2 on day 1, then 1 daily for 4 more days or a little longer"

I have to disagree with the first choice, doxycycline, from personal experience with that drug. I was left with permanent chronic dystonia (not spasms but perpetual contraction) of the surface muscles of the neck after taking precisely the dosage given here, for two weeks. It has ruined my life, to be histrionic about it.

Look up "doxycycline suicide" on the Internet without the quotes. People have killed themselves over the effects of this horrible drug. (The cases you will find fail to make the neck muscle - suicide connection, they focus on suicide. I have a theory about that; it would take too long to explain here.)

Any drug can cause serious side effects in a small minority of those who take it. However, having prescribed doxycycline to perhaps thousands of people in my 41 year long career--many for long periods because of Lyme disease--I have seen a rare allergic reaction but no one has ever informed me of a permanent neurological reaction.

The fluoroquinolones cause neuro reactions commonly (cipro, levaquin) but my experince is that doxy is extremely safe and does not, in particular, cause the QT elevation feared with the HCQ-Azith combo.
