What is Ivermectin? The drug many are using for COVID-19 recovery. 

When UFC color commentator, Joe Rogan, announced he had been diagnosed with COVID-19 it sent the combat sports world into a frenzy. But none more than when Rogan revealed he had taken Ivermectin, the highly controversial drug many are using to treat COVID-19.

“I got back from the road Saturday night having a headache and feeling rundown,” Rogan said. “I got fevers, sweats and I knew what was going on. Turns out I got COVID. I threw the kitchen sink at it for three days in a row and now I’m feeling great. A big thank you to modern medicine for getting me through this so quickly.”

What exactly is the drug though, and why did he take it?

Ivermectin is most commonly used to treat or prevent parasites in animals such as horses. Yep, it’s that highly-discouraged horse dewormer and Rogan actually took it.

Just last month the The U.S. Food and Drug Administration urged people to stop taking the drug, which was intended for animals. Some of the side affects of the drug are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, low blood pressure, allergic reactions, dizziness, problems with balance, seizures, coma and even death.

Rogan seems to be doing ok, thankfully.
