THIS IS NOT MEDICAL ADVICE. Every situation is unique, and every person must check with his or her own physician, especially if you are taking any other medications. Do not write to any of the doctors about your specific medical situations; they will not answer.

FAQs about HCQ

How do I know if I need treatment with HCQ?
You must consult with a physician. That can be your regular physician or another physician such as a remote tele-medicine physician.

How do I find a doctor who knows about HCQ?
Please go to the “referral” tab to find a HCQ-knowledgeable physician and pharmacy in your area.

What if my doctor will not prescribe (or does not believe in) HCQ?
This is common. One option is to print the White Paper (under References) and share it with your doctor as the evidence is irrefutable. Another option is to find a new doctor.

What is the treatment dose of HCQ?
We agree with Dr. Zelenko.

Prophylactic HCQ Protocol

This is not medical advice. Every situation is unique, and every person must check with his or her own physician, especially if you are taking any other medication. Do not write to Dr. Gold with your specific medical questions. She will not answer.

Hydroxychloroquine 400 mg. twice a day on the first day + elemental zinc 50 mg. daily then
Hydroxychloroquine 400 mg. weekly + zinc 50 mg. daily

Hydroxychloroquine tablets in the USA are 200 mg. and two can be taken together at the same time or separated by hours-days, as long as a person takes 400 mg. weekly. Currently there are studies underway to see if 200 mg. weekly is sufficient.

This protocol is used across the world. For example, see the country of India in the White Paper reference 19. (The national Task for the COVID -19 constituted by Indian Council of Medical Research recommendations for HCQ for prophylaxis of SARS-CoV-2 infection for selected individuals.)

What are some wellness/homeopathic options?
We agree with Dr. Clark and that protocol is printed here.
