This was interesting. Is anybody itt using the prophylactic regimen?

While there is extremely limited data, the following “cocktail” may have a role in the
prevention/mitigation of COVID-19 disease. This cocktail is inexpensive, safe, and widely available. It
should be noted that a recent publication suggests that melatonin my reduce the risk of COVID-19
infection, [1] while many papers suggest that Vitamin D deficiency increases the risk of infection and is
associated with a significantly worse outcome. [2-12]
• Melatonin (slow release): Begin with 0.3mg and increase as tolerated to 2 mg at night [1,13-17]
• Vitamin D3 2000-4000 u/day [2-12]
• Vitamin C 500 mg BID (twice daily) and Quercetin 250-500 mg BID [10,11,18-26]
• Zinc 50-75 mg/day (elemental zinc). Zinc lozenges are preferred. After 1 month, reduce the
dose to 30-50 mg/day. [10,11,18,25,27-31]
• Optional: Famotidine 20-40 mg/day [32-35]
• Optional/Experimental: Interferon-α nasal spray for health care workers [36]
• Optional: Ivermectin for postexposure prophylaxis (see NCT04422561)

Symptomatic patients (at home):
• Vitamin C 500 mg BID and Quercetin 250-500 mg BID
• Zinc 75-100 mg/day (elemental zinc)
• Melatonin 6-12 mg at night (the optimal dose is unknown)
• Vitamin D3 2000-4000 u/day
• ASA 81 -325 mg/day (unless contraindicated). ASA has antiinflammatory, antithrombotic, and
antiviral effects.[37,38] Platelet activation may play a major role in propagating the
prothrombotic state associated with COVID-19. [39]
• Famotidine 40mg BID (reduce dose in patients with renal dysfunction) [32-35]
• Optional: Ivermectin 150-200 ug/kg orally (dose can be repeated on day 2) [40-45]
• Optional: Interferon-α/β s/c, nasal spray or inhalation. [36,46-48] It should be noted that Zinc
potentiates the effects of interferon.[49,50]
• Optional: Vascepa (Ethyl eicosapentaenoic acid) 4g daily or Lovaza (EPA/DHA) 4g daily;
alternative DHA/EPA 4g daily. Vascepa and Lovaza tablets must be swallowed and cannot be
crushed, dissolved or chewed. Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties and play
an important role in the resolution of inflammation. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids may have
antiviral properties. [10,51-54]
• In symptomatic patients, monitoring with home pulse oximetry is recommended (due to
asymptomatic hypoxia). The limitations of home pulse oximeters should be recognized, and
validated devices are preferred.[55] Multiple readings should be taken over the course of the
day, and a downward trend should be regarded as ominous.[55] Baseline or ambulatory
desaturation < 94% should prompt hospital admission. [56] The following guidance is
suggested: [55]
o Use the index or middle finger; avoid the toes or ear lobe
o Only accept values associated with a strong pulse signal
o Observe readings for 30-60 seconds to identify the most common value
o Remove nail polish from the finger on which measurements are made
o Warm cold extremities prior to measurement

Selling To Zero: Generally, corporate best practices suggest that a company's leadership should hold on to at least some stock in their company to have "skin in the game." That way, the thinking goes, an executive has an incentive to improve the company's performance. As Moderna has been developing its coronavirus vaccine, two executives, including the Chief Medical Officer, have sold all their stock holdings in the company. The General Counsel has sold nearly all of her holdings.
We've all been rolling our eyes at the vaccine pump and dumps this year, but this **** gets real if there isn't anything efficacious produced and distributed in 2021. Imagine what happens if every effort was short cuts and scams, or the vaccine that does get distributed turns out to be worthless. Not only will that be another 12-18 months before anything can be developed, but it's likely the public would never trust the vaccine process again.
