I’ve begun taking hydoxychloroquine and zinc again

On January 21, I began Taking Hydoxychloroquine Prophylactically.

A week later when I checked, my blood pressure had shot through the roof. (182 over 89).

I checked with my doctors and they theorized that the high numbers might have to do with my body’s response to the hydoxychloroquine. However, it might have to do with the zinc instead. Or maybe both. (My body doesn’t always respond to chemicals in what is considered a ‘normal’ manner.)

The doctors suggested that I go off both the hydoxychloroquine and the zinc for a week and see if my high BP goes down. Then add the hydoxychloroquine back into the mix and see what happens. If that seems to go okay, then add in just half of the recommended dose of zinc, and see what happens then.

Well, I stayed off of both those for a week … and nothing changed. Something else appears to be the problem.

So, I’ve begun taking both the hydoxychloroquine and the zinc again. Will keep you updated.

(Now the doctors are searching for what else may be causing the high BP. I’ll not bore you with the details.)


Here’s what I wrote earlier:

With so much disinformation out there about Covid-19, how does one know what is true? I’ve therefore decided to become a human guinea pig, and have begun taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure. I will keep you updated as to how it turns out.

I’ve Just Started Taking Hydoxychloroquine Prophylactically

Robert Felix

The idea of allowing myself to be vaccinated with an experimental mRNA vaccine that has not yet completed the testing stage really concerns me. And when I see hospitals essentially having to bribe their medical personnel to take the vaccine, I realize that I am not alone in this regard.

Perhaps I could have accessed hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) on my own, but since I’m posting this online, I decided to do it in a responsible manner.

I therefore talked to, and corresponded with, many people whom I trust in this matter. This includes several primary care physicians, physician’s assistants and nurses. Some of them have already been vaccinated, while others (more than you might believe) have decided to wait for more test results.

Anyway, I scheduled an in-person appointment with one of those doctors. After talking to me and checking me out physically, he sent a prescription for a month’s supply of HCQ to my pharmacy.

A month’s supply may sound like a lot, but it is actually only eight pills; two pills per week.

Because I have had elevated liver enzyme levels in the past, the doctor insisted that I go in for blood tests to establish a base level, and then repeat the same tests in 30 days. At that point, we will compare the results and decide whether it appears safe for me to continue the regimen.

And a regimen it is. The doctors (yes, there’s an ‘s’ on the end of that word) because several doctors suggested that I take the following supplements daily:

  • 50 mg of zinc (25 mg in the a.m., 25 mg in the p.m.)
  • 4,000 i.e.u. of vitamin D3
  • At least 2,000 mg of vitamin C (I’m  actually taking 4,000 mg/day)

Those supplements were no surprise, because I’d already been taking them anyway.

But this next one was a surprise.

  • The doctors (yes, again, several doctors) recommended that I add 250 mg per day of quercetin to the mix.

As I said earlier, I’ve already been taking the zinc, D3 and C for years, so the only addition was the quercetin.

I had never heard of quercetin before, and a couple of grocery stores I visited had never heard of it either. But I found it at a local pharmacy later that same day.

Quercetin is an herbal supplement, non-prescription, and once one knows what to look for, is easily found on the web.

What does quercetin do?

According to a National Institute of Health report that I just found, “quercetin (is) a flavonoid found in fruits and vegetables. (It) has unique biological properties that may improve mental/physical performance and reduce infection risk. These properties form the basis for potential benefits to overall health and disease resistance, including anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antioxidant, and (other) activities.”

Anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antioxidant. Not a bad combination.

And it appears to be safe. According to a different N.I.H. paper, “adverse effects following supplemental quercetin intake (up to 1000 mg daily) have been rarely reported and any such effects were mild in nature.”

According to the doctors, the above four herbal supplements could give me up to 75 percent of the protection that I’ll be getting from the hydroxychloroquine.

For me, this has been a no-brainer.

And if it turns out that I’m not a suitable candidate for HCQ, I’ll most likely continue taking the above cocktail of herbal supplements.

By the way, as near as I can tell, taking HCQ prophylactically will not prevent me from catching Covid-19, but quite possibly could render its effects much less pronounced.

Stay tuned: I’ll keep you updated as to how this all turns out.

* Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, nor do I have a medical background. I am therefore not suggesting that you do, or do not, begin taking hydroxychloroquine. That’s between you and your doctor.

    • Dr. Zelenko Covid-19 Prophylaxis Protocol
      Website: vladimirzelenkomd.com

      Low and moderate risk patients:
      Zinc 25 mg 1 x daily
      D3 5000 iu 1 x daily
      C 1000 mg 1 x daily
      Quercetin 500 mg 1 x daily

      High risk patients:
      Zinc 25 mg 1 x daily
      D3 5000 iu 1 x daily
      Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ4) 200mg 1 x daily for 5 days
      then 1 x a week
      (If HCQ4 is unavailable then use low moderate protocol.

  1. Cod Liver Oil – Carlson’s (I used to take daily and still take on the days I don’t have a can or two of sardines. Cod liver oil (Carlson’s tastes best) is also high in D3 – D3 should be taken with fats like butter, fish oil (K2, Mg D3 cofactors) etc. Also very good for your eyes… and MIND… Mr. (way ahead of his time) ‘natural*’ Ice Age Climate Genius;)

    *natural organic chem-free is key

  2. We were originally designed to live near a warm ocean [sea food – fish oil] buck naked getting lots of sunshine [D3]. Figure it out.

  3. Id personally donate the HQ to another family member without a BP issue, Robert
    we readers here do appreciate your presence and effort and Id not be the only one to miss you im sure.
    do the Ivermectin instead,kinder on the body

  4. See Dr. Benjamin Bickman’s book “Why we get Sick”. He’s a world class molecular biologist researcher and prof. at BYU and leading expert on metabolism and insulin.
    Chapter two explains how insulin effects blood pressure in four ways.
    Ii could be you’re insulin resistant (huge numbers of Americans are). It’s a progressive disease so if you have insulin resistance you may have simply gotten to the point were it’s being expressed as high blood pressure.

  5. Man I would stay away from all these drugs and shots. I never mess with any of it. Nor do I trust this horrible government. They do anything they can to make you more sick in the future and more dependent on them.

    As to blood pressure, I never know what mine even is because whenever I go for a physical (if required for a job) I get hyper at the doctor’s office, so it shoots thru the roof, but only when I’m there.

  6. Take some magnesium to get your BP down. It may make you drowsy, so take it at night. Better yet, take a supplement like Blood Pressure Factors. Works wonders for my wife. Also, get a kettlebell and start swinging that thing!

  7. If everyone really thinks that this virus is just another type of flu, why would they risk taking any sort of drug to protect themselves against it? It’s either a ‘deadly virus’ or it’s not. Stats show that it’s the latter, so why take anything to protect yourselves against it?? There seems to be a lack of rational thinking here, imo. Real science seems to have flown out the window and given way to magical thinking!

    • It all depends on your age and “co-morbidities.” If you are young, and healthy no problem with the risks. Only a few have extended problems or die. Over 65 and with a lesser immune system due to aging or illnesses, you are likely to die or suffer horribly. I wold rather research treatments that have been ACTUALLY clinically effective and I am thankful for those doctors who put themsleves on the line.

      • That’s the same with any flu! Yet, nobody panics over that. This is media driven hysteria, period! And if you buy into it, I can sell you a hundred acres of land on the Moon.

  8. Running around starkers is little hard to do when it is winter and in polite society. Fish oil capsules works fine though.

    • Who needs a mag rev high cosmic ray mutation to make an evolutionary leap when we got HCQ type chemicals to twist the genes?

      Mutagenic, Genotoxic and Immunomodulatory effects of Hydroxychloroquine and Chloroquine: a review to evaluate its potential to use as a prophylactic drug against COVID-19
      Existing literature suggests that CQ can induce mutagenic and genotoxic effects in multiple test systems and both the drugs have immunomodulatory effects.
      … to date, there are no clinical studies that have established any clinical efficacy of these [HCQ] drugs as a prophylactic.
      Both HCQ and CQ are immunomodulatory drugs and have the potential to suppress normal immune system activation. In this review, we have elucidated the mechanism of immunomodulation by both HCQ and CQ and highlighted the mutagenic and genotoxic effects from the available literature. This article is written with the sole objective that the reader will be able to recognize the adverse effects of these drugs when consumed by healthy individuals as a prophylactic. Current literature indicates that healthy individuals should refrain from the use of these drugs until further investigation.

      … so come up to the lab… to see what’s on the slab… we’re anticipating your… evolutionary/revolutionary multi-letter HCQ transition.

  9. Robert, thanks so much for your careful care of yourself and informing us of the details. I also did “tons and tons” of research. Listened on YouTube to Dr. Seheult, DrBeen, his many visitor-clinicians on their successes – Drs P Merik, Zelenko, now cardiac dr. Harrison and his research study.

    Like you I am on the supplements D (to bring blood level to 50-70 ng/ml) C, K2 (for high D st present), calcium-magnesium – quercetin and zinc.

    I also found a doctor who, after careful exam, said I was a a candidate for HCQ+Zinc as prophylaxis, and prescribed Ivermectin to use if I get flu symptoms.

    I, too, do not want to be a guinea pig for a vaccine still in experimental phase. (Although my not-immediate-family members in health care took it cheerfully – all survived well!)

    • Nobody is suggesting that the ‘vaccine’ will kill you right away, although in some cases it may already have done so. Just wait for the long term effects. Which of course will most likely get brushed straight under the carpet along with so much else…

  10. I’ve been doing a technique called grounding for the last couple of weeks, don’t know if you’ve heard about it, also got my dad and Brother on it. In a week my blood pressure started coming down, felt more calm relaxed, less stressed, more positive, my dry flaky scalp all but gone, dry cracked fingers seem to be healing (Cold Scottish Winter), my gums look better. My dad also has chronic prostate problems (All medical investigations can’t find any problem) always up at night peeing, he’s just had his first full night of uniterrupted sleep, and his rough scalp seems to be healing.

    Interesting concept, and it’s actually got quite a few double blind medical studies behind it. It reduces/eliminates inflammation, which is the root cause of all diseases, so it’s a holistic therapy. So easy to implement by using grounding sheets. Some people do in naturally by walking barefoot on Earth when they can.

    Look up Clint Ober and grounding.
