Joe Rogan tests positive for COVID and takes a ton of meds to kick it: ‘We threw the kitchen sink at it’

Wildly popular podcast host, comedian, and MMA commentator Joe Rogan, who announced in January that he would not get the jab, just stated in a video that he came down with COVID-19 and then successfully threw “the kitchen sink at it” to kick the virus.

The announcement was originally posted on Instagram on Wednesday where Rogan admitted he had been symptomatic. His symptoms started on Saturday and Sunday was a tough day for Rogan. But by the time he was done, Rogan said he beat COVID in three days with his regimen of meds.

“Feeling very weary. I had a headache and just felt just run down. And just to be cautious, I separated from my family, slept in a different part of the house, and throughout the night I got fevers and sweats. And I knew what was going on,” he surmised.

The following morning, on Sunday, he got tested for COVID and came up positive. That’s when he threw every med he could get at the virus.

“So we immediately threw the kitchen sink at it. All kinds of meds. Monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-Pak, Prednisone, everything. And I also got an NAD drip and a vitamin drip, and I did that three days in a row,” he recounted. “And so here we are on Wednesday and I feel great. I really only had one bad day. Sunday sucked, but Monday was better. Tuesday felt better than Monday, and today I feel good. I actually feel pretty f**king good.”

Ivermectin has been blasted by the FDA and CDC but some claim they have had amazing success with it despite public health officials warning against it. Some people are using the drug as a last-ditch effort to save loved ones from dying.

“A wonderful, heartfelt thank you to modern medicine for pulling me out of this so quickly and easily,” Rogan said in his video.

Rogan was forced to reschedule his comedy tour due to his bout with COVID-19.

“My apologies to everyone,” Rogan stated. “Obviously it is nothing that I can control. It is what it is. Crazy times we’re living in.”

In January, comedian Jamar Neighbors asked Rogan on “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, “You taking that vaccine?”

“No!” Rogan responded. “I would if I felt like I needed it.”

He said he believed it would be “good for some people” to take it. Rogan had also stated passionately at one time that younger people don’t need to get the vaccine.

Following his speedy recovery, the media came out in full force to try and shred Rogan over allegedly not getting the vaccine in the first place and then treating the virus with “unapproved” medications. They mocked him for taking a “horse dewormer” (ivermectin).

They lined up to take shots at him as the media collectively melted down over Rogan’s treatment and recovery.

“Rogan did not reveal if he’s been vaccinated against the coronavirus but said he’s been taking a number of medications, mentioning a Z-Pak, prednisolone, and ivermectin, which is given to livestock and not recommended for the treatment of COVID-19.” The Hill noted.

“Joe Rogan says he has Covid, took widely discredited horse drug ivermectin. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration last month urged people to stop believing misinformation that the livestock treatment would help cure Covid-19.” ABC News charged.

“Joe Rogan announced that he has tested positive for the coronavirus. He said he took a series of medications, including ivermectin, but did not make any mention of the vaccine.” Axios asserted.

CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner went after Rogan full-force over contracting COVID and treating it with multiple meds. He attempted to trash his treatment of the virus that appears to have worked during an appearance on CNN:

So he says he’s taking ivermectin. It doesn’t work. I wish it worked. It would be great if it worked. You know, it’s an old drug. It’s a cheap drug. It would be fantastic if it worked. It doesn’t work. We know that.

He said he received monoclonal antibodies. It’s really not indicated for him. It’s indicated for people with mild to moderate symptoms at high risk of progression. It doesn’t seem like that’s him.

He said he took steroids – prednisone. That’s only indicated for hospitalized patients on oxygen therapy.

And finally, he said he took azithromycin, an antibiotic, which doesn’t work for a viral illness. We know that. So you know, he’s promoting kind of a crazy jumble of you know, sort of folk remedies and internet-prescribed drugs. It’s, again, dangerous now. He should have more sense after encountering the disease. And again, I hope he does well and gets well quickly. He’s not helping matters when he promotes this sort of nonsense therapeutic mix.

 

Then Reiner told CNN host Don Lemon that Rogan should just admit he was wrong and tell everyone to get the jab. “He has the ear of these people. He could be a force for vaccinating in this country, for putting the virus down by simply saying, ‘You know something? I was wrong. This virus is nothing to be played with. If you haven’t been vaccinated, go out and get vaccinated.'”
