I am using it along with Peg Interferon it is alos used for the Sars virus excepted the dose is 3 to 4 times of that used for Hep C.
I can't be bothered to look it up now,but I;m pretty sure it was originally designed and licensed for viral pneumonia.
now that's the scariest thing you've shared all year!!!
I mean, what 6 pills a day do to me....giving a dose 3 or 4 times that would be like attempted murder in my mind.
You can't be serious, at thoses dosages the kidneys would be toast in no time.....are they figuring might as well, or the virus will get ya...we can always put new kidneys in....or what??
Yes the treatment for the Sars virus is extreme I was complaining to my liver specialist how I felt on 6 pills of Ribarivirn and he told me what the Sars patients are taking.
They are also closely monitored and hospitalized it is a very contagious disease.
Ribavirin was originally designed as a cure for the Flu. It works too.
The Company that developed it whose name escapes me ran trials for this but the trials were inconclusive. The Co said the trails that showed it didnt work were flawed.
They got into a bun fight with the FDA and lost, went broke and got bought out by someone.
It is available in Mexico and several other countries as a cure for the Flu.
As are the Riba pro drugs.
It's sold as an inhaler for the flu in Mexico. Also, if I remember correctly, it's approved for some pediatric uses in this country.
