What Causes LongCovid?

LongCovid, also called Chronic Covid Syndrome or Longhaulers Syndrome, has multiple possible causes. At this point, it seems that some cases are caused by one thing and other cases are caused by something else. And that suggests that there is no one treatment that will work for everyone.

Possible Treatments for LongCovid (no promises)

* Try a twice daily Lymph Drainage Massage. The theory is that brain inflammation prevents proper drainage of the lymph, and this results in brain fog, memory problems, fatigue, and other neurological symptoms. Search YouTube for: lymph neck massage

* This YouTube Interview (about the 42 minute mark) has a discussion of treatments for LongCovid (Longhaulers) also called Chronic Covid-19. These treatment suggestions are either/or, not both, not all. These treatments do not work together. They are separate treatment modalities:

Ivermectin works for some Longhaulers. (See the i-MASK dosing schedule for Ivermectin here)

Each dose is about 0.2 mg of ivermectin per kg of body weight. Then take one dose, skip a day, and on the next (third) day take the second dose;

OR take one dose of ivermectin per week. Ivermectin does not work for everyone with LongCovid. But it has worked enough times to be well-worth trying, especially since ivermectin is a low-risk medication very widely used in the world (since the 1970s).


Steroids (Deltacortril, i.e. prednisone)

as a Steroid pulse, specifically:

Deltacortril (i.e. prednisolone or prednisone)

Days 1 and 2: 5 mg three times a day
(once with breakfast, once with lunch, once with dinner)

Days 3 and 4: 5 mg twice a day
(once with breakfast, once with lunch)

Days 5 and 6: 5 mg once a day
(once with breakfast)


as a low dose weekly steroid

Deltacortril (i.e. prednisolone or prednisone)
10 mg once a week for several weeks


Supplements: the only other treatment that is reported to help is various OTC supplements discussed here

There is no known certain cure for LongCovid, that works for everyone at this point in time.
