Popular podcast host Joe Rogan says that he’s taking the dewormer drug ivermectin after being diagnosed with COVID-19.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, Rogan told his followers that he has to change his comedy tour schedule.
“I got back from the road Saturday night feeling very weary. I had a headache. I felt just run down,” he said.
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 has been approved for use in humans for some conditions but is not recommended for the treatment of COVID-19.
