I understand that you are between a rock and a hard place with doctors. However, I can't stress this enough: DO NOT SELF-DIAGNOSE!! She needs to be seen by a doctor, pronto! You are making ALL KINDS of assumptions, and giving her meds that may be contraindicated. These meds are generally safe, but at the very least might not be doing anything at all for her, and at the worst, may be working against her particular condition.

Brilinta is used to lower the risk of a heart attack or stroke after a serious event. You are not telling us the whole story. Why does she have this medication prescribed to her? You are playing with fire...get to a doctor!!

Gonna have to agree with this one. No more info on symptoms other than sick/fatigued is very hard to go by.. it could be nearly anything.

No info on sniffles, cough, head-cold, chest congestion.. nor temperature or fever.. nor nausea, dizzyness, headache, tenderness anywhere..

If covid was the only illness, you might have a point in trying to go right to the IVM paste, vitc+d, zinc, NAC and so on. But there could be many other things at work here.

Also, when IVM is the fix, it seems to have positive and dramatic results immediately, certainly within 24h. Seeing no change for your wife over days suggests maybe you have been looking at the wrong thing here.. please get advice from a local GP.

Been taking BP, pulse, O2, and Temperature several times a day. All seem relatively normal other than slight temperature under 101 off/on. Most of the time the temp is in the 99* range. First couple days she had a runny nose and sore throat as well. Those seem to have resided but cough and lethargy are still an issue.

If her O2 levels are fine and she doesn’t have a bad fever, what’s the worry here? Let it run its course. People get sick.
