Many people have experienced delays lately trying to obtain COVID meds Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Ivermectin (IVM) through the America’s Frontline Doctors service speakwithanmd.com. Unfortunately they’ve been so swamped, and the pharmacy they used was so inundated with requests, that getting prescriptions filled and in patients’ hands has been very frustrating for everyone. I personally experienced this recently in trying to get HCQ through them.
I have alternative sources for getting prescriptions for these meds listed in this post on my blog:
This blog post shows the Zelenko Protocols for dosage:
As of September 30, 2021 I have new information that may be helpful.
I went to the Push Health website to obtain Ivermectin:
They have a brief medical questionnaire to fill out which asks what you want. I was able to specifically request Ivermectin as a prophylaxis (for preventive treatment). Once I paid for a “doctor consult” I could choose my pharmacy.
I chose Honey Bee Health as a telemedicine provider which delivers via mail:
The same day, within a couple hours, I received an email from this pharmacy, which had already been sent the doctor prescription. I paid for the meds and could choose how quickly I wanted to receive them, i.e. via mail in 7-10 days or through expedited delivery. I chose the mail option as I didn’t need them immediately.
Here’s the BOTTOM LINE: Within 3-4 hours of beginning the process with Push Health, I already got the prescription filled by Honey Bee Health, and it will be sent per my timing request. If you want to get a prescription for Ivermectin, I suggest you give this option a try.
Note: Ivermectin is outrageously priced in the United States. What literally cost only pennies per pill in 3rd World Countries costs up to $6 per pill here. Be advised that 20 ct. 3 mg pills cost about $120.
This is the dosage chart I found for Ivermectin based on body weight:
Dosage guidelines based on body weight:
15 to 24 kg: 3 mg orally one time
25 to 35 kg: 6 mg orally one time
36 to 50 kg: 9 mg orally one time
51 to 65 kg: 12 mg orally one time
66 to 79 kg: 15 mg orally one time
80 kg or more: 0.2 mg/kg orally one time
To determine Ivermectin dosage, here is a kilogram to pounds converter: https://www.rapidtables.com/convert/weight/pound-to-kg.html
Example: If you weigh 150 lbs, based on this converter, you weigh 68 kg. Thus your dosage would be 15 mg of Ivermectin orally one time. For a 5-day course of treatment with 3 mg Ivermectin pills, you would require 5 pills per dosage with a total of 25 pills needed. Based on the current price of $6 per pill that pharmacies are charging, this would cost you $150. (Like I said, the cost here in the US is outrageous.)
