Perhaps this is due to gut microbiome or renal processing changes - but whatever the case there have been reports of toxicity occuring in people taking the same dose after recovering from Covid.


Toxicity? Wow. I was never told any of this.


> I haven't seen reports of people saying antidepressants/anti-psychotics have stopped working (or don't work) after Covid. Many people do experience brain fog/fatigue after recovering from the infection though, so in that sense the drugs may become less effective as they're up against more intense issues.


I would make metformin my first choice to treat or prevent long-COVID.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
