But don't get TOO MANY boosters, as you might fuck up your immune system:

FLUVOXAMINE seems to work well against Covid in double blind tests in France, as it seems.

It's a cousin antidepressant of Prozac, that gives 66% reduced hospitalization and 90 % reduced death, says new study, and cheaper than any other medications so far.
It does cure, but do not protect. 3 nothern American universities use them as treatment already.

It was discovered when observing the low numbers of hospitalizations of psychiatric patients.

It's good when they find unexpected uses for known (ahem, human designed) drugs. Like LSD for treating alcohol addiction and Thalidomide for skin conditions and possibly cancer. The bonus is they already know the possible side effects.

Prime Minister HE has given the green light for anyone who contracts the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron mutation or any other variant to convalesce or receive treatment at home or in any other reasonable non-healthcare setting.

The new decision supersedes a restriction on home care for patients infected with Omicron that was issued by the premier early this month, due to the variant of concern’s increased transmissibility.

In a special audio message addressed to the Ministry of Health and relevant authorities late on January 21, HE said Omicron was “not as dangerous” as other strains such as Delta or Alpha.

“All patients are free to choose a suitable place, and should only go to get treatment at state hospitals if they cannot find an appropriate location for care,” he stressed.

“There is no requirement for anyone to be admitted to hospital for treatment, like Omicron patients used to have to.

“If any patients with Omicron who are currently receiving care at hospital – foreign nationals or Cambodians alike – would like to be discharged from hospital and continue treatment at home or at a hotel, please allow them to leave – from tonight

New study explores nocebo effect specifically on covid-19 vaccines:

https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamane ... le/2788172
In this systematic review and meta-analysis of 12 articles including AE reports for 45 380 trial participants, systemic AEs were experienced by 35% of placebo recipients after the first dose and 32% after the second. Significantly more AEs were reported in the vaccine groups, but AEs in placebo arms (“nocebo responses”) accounted for 76% of systemic AEs after the first COVID-19 vaccine dose and 52% after the second dose.
Or in English, 76% of you who got side effects from your first jab, actually just got screwed over by your own bodies anticipating side effects because you'd read about them in the news.
Doesn't mean you're daft or owt, it's just a weird part of how bodies work. :beer2:


(edit: I guess technically 76% of AEs and 76% of people aren't strictly the same thing, but still...)
