Joe Rogan caught heat from social media after he revealed that he had used an animal dewormer to treat Covid-19.
"They're making sh*t up! They keep saying I'm taking horse dewormer. I literally got it from a doctor. It's an American company. They won the Nobel Prize in 2015 for use in human beings and CNN is saying I'm taking horse dewormer. They must know that's a lie," he said on his podcast.
After testing positive for Covid, Rogan said:
"We immediately threw the kitchen sink at it: all kinds of meds. Monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-pack, prednisone—everything," he said in a video posted to his Instagram.
According to WebMD, Ivermectin is an anti-parasitic drug that is used to treat river blindness and intestinal roundworm infection in humans and to de-worm pets and livestock.
"Crazy times we're living in, but a wonderful, heartfelt thank you to modern medicine for pulling us out so quickly and easily," he added.
