I-RECOVER protocol to treat post-vaccine inflammatory syndromes
MemberJune 26, 2021 at 10:53 am
FLCCC has coined the term “post-vaccine inflammatory syndromes” to describe some of COVID vaccine side-effects that are similar to COVID Long Haulers. FLCCC has offered their I-RECOVER protocol which they claim should be able to treat COVID vaccine related inflammations.
Let’s share some results and experience when applying I-RECOVER to vaccine related inflammation issues.

IVM: one dose of IVM every other days.
Fluvoxamine: I do not have access to it currently.
Prednisone: I do not have access to it currently.
Vitamin C: Now doing 500 mg twice daily, 500 mg 3 times per day might be possible
Omega 3: Now doing 2 grams a day (large pills – 2 is the limit for me)
Vitamin D: Following Mobeen’s advice to skip this except a small amount from multi-vitamin.
Quercetin: 500 mg Quercetin taken with 30 mg of Zinc Citrate daily. (Continuous daily Quercetin could lower blood pressure)
Statin: I am taking 80 mg Pravastatin per day instead of Atorvastatin
Melatonin: 3 mg Melatonin per night; I might investigate if I can take 6 mg.
H1 blockers: Diphenhydramine seems to be more effective than Cetirizine.
H2 blockers: I take 40 mg Famotidine per day now
NSAIDs: not part of I-RECOVER, but I take 220 mg Naproxen Sodium when my joints flare up.
With doing all of this I am just barely keeping my inflammations under control. Quercetin and Diphenhydramine I started taking them again. I believe they provided some additional control.
One thing I am not sure is the amount of IVM I can take. When I started having post vaccine inflammations I was taking one dose of IVM every 2 weeks. The frequency went from every two weeks to once per week, then to 2 times per week, then to 3 times per week. I might be near the point of diminishing return, but thankfully no adverse effects yet.

I wonder if Pierre Kory is familiar with Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN). LDN suppresses the immune system like prednisone, but it’s safer because it doesn’t suppress your own production of cortisol. It’s normally prescribed at 50mg to block pleasant feelings from alcohol or opioids. Low dose is 10mg or lower. You’re not going OD on this stuff, or mix it with alcohol and die like other pain killers. LDN gives me an uplifting feeling, and helps with inflammation so well, I am now able to mow the lawn and vacuum again. Before I would get inflammation in my list back and be messed up for a week or two.
I have a spectrum of autoimmune disorders, and had inflammation throughout my entire body.

How do you get Low Dose Naltrexone though? Do the typical pharmacy like CVS sell a low dose version? Do you have to cut up a 50 mg pill to estimate a low dose?

Hi. Forgive me for answering, as I was not the person you asked. However, I wanted to ensure you received a reply from someone.
Naltrexone requires a prescription. Thus, you would need a doctor who is informed about using it at low doses and open-minded enough to write a prescription.
Two compounding pharmacies that produce their own LDN tablets are Belmar Pharmacy (Colorado) and CareFirst Specialty Pharmacy (New Jersey).
Here is their information on LDN:
I have used both pharmacies and prefer Belmar much more, but CareFirst is tolerable.
You would need to either call them or check their websites to confirm if they will ship to your location.
I’ve had them make 1 mg and 2 mg tablets for me, but they might make other dosages, depending on what a doctor would prescribe.

One question that I had for myself was if I was really doing the I-RECOVER protocol when I was only taking Ivermectin once every other day, instead of the published protocol of once every day for 5 days. This is my third day of once per day Ivermectin dosing. I agree that I have seen improvement in my symptoms once I changed to once per day Ivermectin.
One other change is to couple taking supplements together with eating a meal. This allows me to take one fish oil pill with meal 3 times a day.
I have stopped taking Quercetin every day, because I know from previous experience if I take it every day then eventually I would have low blood pressure symptoms. I have temporarily replaced Quercetin with Curcumin without seeing a drop-off in effects. Curcumin has a reputation of causing upset stomach; I will have to observe if taking Famotidine regularly can forestall this Curcumin side-effect.
I have increased my Vitamin C dosing to 500 mg Vitamin C per meal. Melatonin dosing was increased from 3 mg per night to 6 mg per night without problems.
I wish the I-RECOVER protocol has more clear instructions once I finish the 5 day sequence of Ivermectin dosing. It is not clear to me when it is safe to do the 5 day sequence of Ivermectin dosing again.
One forum member suggested alpha-lipoic acid, but I will not be able to experiment with it for at another month. I will have Fluvoxamine and weekly dosed Hydroxy-chloroquine ready to come into the picture.
Current nightly routine is before sleep taking 20 mg Famotidine, 6 mg Melatonin, and 25 mg Diphenhydramine / 10 mg Cetirizine.
Some may question why I am taking so many medicines. The answer is that this post vaccine inflammation is relentless, unless I counter it with the suite of medicines in the I-RECOVER protocol.
I have noticed that my skin color in the morning is normal, but by sleep time my skin color is trending toward an unhealthy reddish color. Unsure what is the underlying cause.

On 2021-07-06 I finished my 5 day continuous treatment using Ivermectin. On that day I have my first symptom free feeling – no chest tightness, no knee pain, everything at ease. I will pause Ivermectin to start Fluvoxamine the next day.
On 2021-07-07 I started a single 50 mg Fluvoxamine near noon time. I had some mild knee pain recurring, but they were tolerable.
On 2021-07-08 I started 50 mg Fluvoxamine two times per day. No knee pains today.
On 2021-07-09 I noticed that I have episodes of wild thoughts probably due to increased Serotonin level. I will monitor this side-effect. Knee pain is slight today. Perhaps I can alternate between Ivermectin and Fluvoxamine so that I will always have something to keep a lid on my symptoms.

I want to report back that I have a theory that the red colorization on my skin is a sign of blood thinning. I believe long term Naproxen Sodium use could reduce platelet level. I had to use Naproxen Sodium almost everyday for pain relief during the last two months. Now that I know Ivermectin and Fluvoxamine can control my symptoms I will avoid Naproxen Sodium except intermittent use.

On 2021-07-12 I took one dose of 200 mg Hydroxychloroquine and it stopped my knee pain one hour later. From what I read this medicine has a very long half life, so that I might be covered for the next month.

This is 6th days past my 200 mg HCQ dosing. I did not have to use any Naproxen Sodium this week, and yet my skin color change in a day remained roughly the same – trending toward a shade of red in the evening. I now have to say this is probably nothing to do with blood thinning, but rather just a sign of inflammation. Some other Long Haulers in Mobeen’s group have commented that their skin color is similarly more red than before Long Hauling.
200 mg HCQ was somewhat too strong for me, with some signs of immune suppression. Next time I will do 100 mg HCQ at a time. I appreciate my knee pain free status, but I have to treat this medicine very carefully.
MemberJuly 27, 2021 at 7:08 pm
On 2021-07-26 I took a 100 mg dose of Hydroxychloroquine. With this dosing I did not experience tiredness or immune suppression. Knee pain suppression was still effective.
During the week of 2021-07-12 I required one dose of Ivermectin for knee pain.
During the week of 2021-07-19 I required four doses of Ivermectin for knee pain. From this I can conclude a 200 mg dose of Hydroxychloroquine controlled one week worth of my knee pain.
On 2021-07-27 I restarted my 50 mg Fluvoxamine per day again. This is because I had some experience of Ivermectin + Fluvoxamine, but not HCQ + Fluvoxamine. I might have more to say about Fluvoxamine next week.
