Fact Check : Ivermectin Dose + Protocol By Dr. Amir Farid?
This advice on ivermectin dose and protocol by Dr. Amir Farid is misleading and dangerous, and here are the FACTS why…

Fact #1 : Ivermectin Not Approved For Human Use In Malaysia

Ivermectin is not approved for human use in Malaysia, only animal use. It is also not approved for use against COVID-19.

However, hospitals can apply for the off-label use of ivermectin, which must be done in a monitored environment.

So it is WRONG for any doctor or medical specialist to advice people to self-medicate with ivermectin, more so using an unapproved protocol.

.

Fact #3 : Ivermectin Should Be Taken Before Food

Dr. Amir Farid doesn’t seem to know that ivermectin should be taken on an empty stomach!

In fact, it’s best not to eat any food for two hours before or after taking ivermectin, for optimal absorption.

Instead, he is advising people to do the opposite. Can you really trust him to know what he’s talking about?

Fact #4 : Ivermectin Dose + Protocol Not FLCCC Compliant

The main group pushing ivermectin is FLCCC, and Dr. Amir Farid has spoken up in favour of the FLCCC.

However, the ivermectin dose + protocol that he is recommending has NOTHING to do with the FLCCC ivermectin protocol.

FLCCC recommends taking ivermectin just once a month to prevent COVID-19. Dr. Amir Farid is asking people to take it once a week.

FLCCC recommends taking ivermectin just twice after getting infected with COVID-19. Dr. Amir Farid is asking people to take one to two tablets for 5-7 days.

Fact #5 : Ivermectin Dose + Protocol NOT Based On Any Study

Medicine doses are calibrated for safety and efficacy though clinical studies.

However, Dr. Amir Farid’s recommended ivermectin dose and protocol does not appear to be based on any study.

It is not even based on the FLCCC ivermectin protocol, which itself isn’t based on any study either.

So it is unknown why Dr. Amir Farid believes his ivermectin dose and protocol works. There is certainly no proof of it working.

IVERMECTIN DOSE & PROTOCOL.

By Dr Amir Farid Isahak

(For best absorption, take AFTER FOOD )
Ivermectin is Best as PREVENTION. Can reduce infection by 86%.

Take 12mg/every week, (adult 50kg and above) even after vaccination (because many still get infected, some die, after completing vaccination) until COVID new cases are low.

(If weight is 90 kg or above, take every 5 days instead of weekly)

CLOSE CONTACT, HIGH EXPOSURE RISK.
If you are a close contact, or the risk of exposure is high, take the second dose 2 days after the first dose. Then continue the weekly dose.

EARLY TREATMENT ( COVID POSITIVE)
The earlier you start Ivermectin, the better. Most effective in the first 7days after exposure to infected person, not from the day symptoms start (which may happen 3-10 days after exposure)

IF POSITIVE BUT NO SYMPTOMS
Take 1tab (12mg)/daily X 5-7 days.
Then continue 1tab/per week for 5 weeks or more to prevent Long COVID.

IF GOT SYMPTOMS
Take 2 tab (24mg)/a day X 5-7 days.
Then continue 1 tab/per week for 5 weeks or more to prevent Long COVID.

Note that late treatment is less effective, but there have been many cases who recovered despite taking Ivermectin late.

So better late than not taking at all.

There are other protocols being proposed. I find this is easiest to remember and follow.

Some may experience the side-effects of Ivermectin which include nausea, diarrhea, headache, rash etc. Allergic reaction can happen, like for all drugs.
