Fully vaccinated and have barely left the house in 2 years, but it still found me. I'm now officially a walking Covid.

Right now it feels like a very heavy cold. Hoping it doesn't get worse, and the vaccinations stave off the worst of it.

Take zinc supplements and about 4000 units of vitamin D each day. It won't make it vanish, but it will go a long way towards mitigating the effects. Dealt with this about a year ago- the Vit-D and Zinc helped me get through it with no major symptoms or issues. An osteopathic doctor recommended it, and it worked great. Hope you feel better soon. Better still, if you have a local doc that will prescribe you ivermectin, it'll be cured in a few days. Despite what the MSM has been saying, Ivermectin is not 'horse dewormer,' although that is a veterinary application of it. Ivermectin won the 2016 nobel prize as a life-saving anti-parasitic medicine for human beings.

I really hope you’re kidding.

The fundamental application for ivermectin in humans and animals is the same: it’s an anti-parasitic. Viruses aren’t parasites. Ivermectin’s antiviral properties are so minimal that taking an effective dose of it to combat COVID would be toxic.
 


Yeah don't listen to the internet for medicine advice. Drink lots fluids. Get your PCR done ASAP. Unless it's Omicron or they work in the NHS your fully vaccinated house chums can still go to work, etc assuming they are negative! Keep safe

Completely agree. Ivermectin is a wonderful drug absolutely wonderful.....at killing parasites. If covid was a parasite, sign me up.

But its not, and there just is no conclusive evidence it helps against covid. Meanwhile, the drug absolutely can have side effects, ESPECIALLY if you are taking the ones reserved for animals instead of humans (which sadly many people have).


Back to other remedies, I'll agree with the Zinc and Vitamin D dosages. There has been some links between low vitamin D level and bad covid (for example I had a hospitalized case of covid and my vitamin D had bottomed out). Now whether the virus is draining vitamin D or is worse in people with low vitamin D is not yet known. But we do know that high dosages of these vitamins are perfectly safe for short term (you don't want to take very high dosages of Vitamin D for a long time as it can build up toxicity, but for a few weeks or months no problem), so its one of those (we don't know if it helps, but it won't hurt either).

Get some rest and feel better soon! I've known a few fully vaxxed people with breakthrough cases, and all of them said that it was like a cold, and they were grateful to have been vaccinated. No hospitalizations (knock on wood) among that group.

First, that Nobel Prize was in 2015. Second, it was for treatment of parasitic diseases - the specific initial target for avermectin was roundworm - the drug is basically apoison that the worms are slightly more subject to than humans are. It, and the other drugs in the family, have no particular activity relevant to viral infections. You will slough out the lining of your intestines before ivermectin gives you any benefit fighting covid.

Vitamin supplementation doesn't hurt, but has not shown to have particular efficacy in fighting covid.

You're spreading some pretty common misinformation. We've no tolerance for it here.

To be clear, folks: medical misinformation is dangerous. Don't put me in danger. Or anybody else, but especially me! Leave the medical advice to medical professionals.

I am a physician. Danny is right; give Ivermectin to your dog for heartworm. Do not take it to ‘treat’ a virus.

Hope you get better!

I'm on holiday in the Caribbean. We spent the weeks leading up to our departure worrying about catching the virus and not being allowed to go, and about borders closing because of the omicron variant, and up until today worrying about positive results of our 3rd day antigen tests. But now it's all clear and we can enjoy a few weeks of sun and carefree living!

May you have a mild case and quick recovery, Morrus.

You may want to check in with your health care provider regarding evaluation and treatment. Some of the newer treatments may be available and of benefit to you. (As a retired physician from the US, I am not sure of either.)
 

I don't know if the UK has authorized booster shots yet, but here in the US it is recommended to get a booster if you were fully vaccinated at least 6 months ago. And for the folks that got the single-shot J&J, it is 2 months.

I wonder if you picked up the Omicron variant, as it seems to be the easiest to catch of all the variants, vaccinated or not.

As for the vitamin thing, a massive amount of the population is anywhere from mildly to severely vitamin D deficient, so a small supplement of that daily will help if someone needs it, and will do no harm if not.

Bit late for a vaccination booster after you've got the illness! But yes, we have. My appt was next week. However you can't take one within 28 days of a positive test, so I'll have to wait until January.
