Ivermectin for Fibro.

I didn't think she was mean at all....funny how texting can bring this about.
I thought it was a great story of heroism, stepping out to try damn near anything to rid ourselves of these horrible illnesses.
I took Ivermectin in January 2021 for covid. The infection was quite bad but I'd had lots of experience being bedridden in pain, and I'd done a lot of research and prepared myself as best I could. I made it through and in the month after my 3 week infection, I felt the best I had felt in nearly 20 years since my fibromyalgia diagnosis. I don't claim to understand exactly why, perhaps covid stimulated an immune response that helped, or perhaps it was ivermectin.

I got covid a second time a few months later and the infection was mild but my recovery was slow and included tachycardia and a worsening of my orthostatic intolerance, PEM and general fatigue. Based on later testing it looked like covid depleted me of minerals (especially potassium) and probably caused some additional dysbiosis in my gut. I didn't have Ivermectin the second time but will never know if this was a contributing factor.

I would love to have a few packets of this drug on hand and have just started to consider how I might be able to make that happen. I've had complex gut issues for 20 years and sometime I wonder about parasites that testing will never pick up. Seems to me that ivermectin is so safe that experimenting with it for this particular reason would be worth it for me.

I don't preach about it. I respect everyone's right to do their own research, find doctors they trust and make their own decisions. But like so many in this community, mainstream medicine left me disabled and facing poverty, yet making my own decisions and trying experimental treatments got me better.

You can purchase iver many places. The vet form of iver, I'm told by my physician, is exact same formula at 1/5th the price or less, depending where you live

Ivermectin, an anti parasite med hailed as a wonder drug when discovered years ago, is a cheap generic med finally authorized last week by NIH as a first line Covid treatment, after letting a few hundred thousand citizens die for Big Pharma profits. To the point for us, has anyone tried it for fibromyalgia? It has a very low risk profile, is cheap, and readily available. My adult son, recently cured of his second Covid bout with ivermectin, had symptoms scarily similar to both ME and fibro. Ok, maybe they are an end point for a different infectious process. But maybe not...virus/bacteria/etc. as a cause of our disorders has been up for grabs for decades. I have some apple flavored ivermectin horse parasite paste, oddly FDA approved, but am saving it for Covid as I’m not getting the vaccine, a Phase III test of 100 million people IMO. I’m trying to get a doc to prescribe me tablets instead of waiting for sketchy overseas stuff for months. I’d be interested in any thoughts or experiences with this med for us.
Can you tell me where you read that the NIH has authorized ivermectin as a first line treatment? I can’t find it online. My adult son has benefited from it for long COVID (two years sick, bedridden part of the time. Now working part time). Hard to convince anyone ivermectin is safe and effective-especially in Canada where doctors are FORBIDDEN from prescribing it!
