Joe Rogan, host of “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, has tested positive for COVID.

The podcast host took to Instagram late Wednesday night to announce the news to his fans. He says he tested positive after returning from a series in Florida, which is a hotbed of infection right now.

The 54-year-old host said he felt very weary on Saturday and was tested the following day. “Throughout the night I got fevers, sweats, and I knew what was going on,” he asserts. After his diagnosis, he says he “immediately threw the kitchen sink at it.”

“Monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-PAK, prednisone, everything. I also got a NAD drip and a vitamin drip, and I did that three days in a row. Here we are on Wednesday, and I feel great,” Rogan told his followers on Instagram. He postponed his Nashville show to October 24th.

Ivermectin is not recommended as a treatment for COVID by the FDA. Joe Rogan has continually been criticized for comments he’s made about the coronavirus pandemic on his podcast. In April, he was criticized for saying he believed young, healthy people didn’t need to get the vaccine.

Rogan has more than 13 million followers on Instagram. His podcast is the most-streamed podcast on Spotify by a wide margin. Dr. Anthony Fauci called Rogan’s assessment that young people don’t need to be vaccinated “incorrect” and “selfish.”

“I’m not a doctor,” Rogan told his audience in April to walk back the statement. “I’m not a respected source of information, even for me.” Researchers looking into the efficacy of ivermectin shut down a 1,300 patient trial because the drug was no better than a placebo at preventing hospitalization.

“A wonderful, heartfelt thank you to modern medicine for pulling me out of this so quickly and so easily,” Rogan told his listeners. It’s worth noting that the monoclonal antibody treatment and NAD drips he professed to receive are quite expensive.

    So, Joe has consistently pushed back against a tested and now approved vaccine, but will gladly take a drug intended for animals that is experimental on humans, at best. Joe needs mental help, as do all his followers and believers.

      Icky was posting crap a year about how she was against the untested Trump virus being pushed by Big Pharma.

        Actually, I wasn’t, but your big lie doesn’t just extend to the election, apparently.

        You’re a mess, loser. You must be a Russian or Chinese agent. America has problems, but it’s doing better in many ways than over the past 4 disastrous years.

    • William Gallagher

      Yeah – so not experimental on humans
      100 million humans take it annually and it’s among the safes drugs you can take
      Do you read!

      When you are told by doctors and so-called public health officials and strangers in comment sections that Ivermectin can’t be prescribed as a prophylactic or even as a treatment for the Covid because “it isn’t safe” or “it’s unapproved”, you need to fully understand the depths of the truly evil and murderous mendacity behind that statement. Ivermectin is considered one of the Triumvirate of human drugs in the world today and has been for decades: P.I.A. Penicillin, Ivermectin, Aspirin.

      • D. Jackson

        Nicely put. It has been called the miracle drug, and this was before all the recent uproar. It could possibly have several more uses that haven’t been discovered yet. Its crazy that it has ony been found in one part of the world. Off the coast of Japan. In some form of ocean dwelling critter.. I would have to find the article I was reading to be 100%sure . Well, that’s my 2 cents .. Not that anyone asked for it…

    So, you complain that the vax has injured thousands but neglect to discuss the millions who have died from the virus. Hello? Anyone home in your brain?

    Knowledge is not something you can comment on. You have none. I’m reporting you to God. He forget to give you a brain.

    • Giovanni Nutzitch

      Aren’t you Clever Clyde!

      Why didn’t San Franfeces shut down the gay bathhouses when a real deadly virus…AIDS…was passed freely between weirdos?

      BTW…newsflash….millions die from various viruses each year. Get a new justification already.

      • Idiot Detector

        Apples and oranges coming from a nut.

        AIDs isn’t transferred by air, which Covid is. Your attempt to compare falls flat, again.

        Millions don’t die from one virus like this past year has shown. Your statement is not accurate. Get some new material…like something factual.

        The more you spread your incorrect information doesn’t make it true.

        Sad sack, you are, mate.

        • Thomas Y

          forget that guy. he’s worthless – zero brain power; just a talking head repeating what he hears other wackos say.

          You do know that George Soros is behind it all, right? Ha, ha! Idiots.

        • Giovanni Nutzitch

          1.2 million people with deadly AIDS in the US, over 1 million have died.

          Shut down gay clubs NOW.

    Hey Ashley,

    As a fun little experiment try writing an article that doesn’t include your own politically biased retort after every sentence. Just tell us what Joe did/said. I know it’s a challenge but you don’t need to bring Fauci into everything. Joe is rich, it’s not a surprise he would use his resources for the “quite expensive” medicines. Any person that could would. That doesn’t make him a bad person. Just tell THE story, not your story.

    • Giovanni Nutzitch

      Amen. Then, she deletes and closes comments after she initiates the debate.

      But, that is what Twitter, Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Apple all do.

    • UFOs are Real

      Ivermectin is cheap, ask anybody who has a horse. So is a Z-pak. So is prednisone. Vitamin drips are reasonably priced, too. Monoclonal antibodies have been approved for covid treatment.

      The FDA hasn’t approved Ivermectin? That’s the same FDA telling everybody that they should eat 300 carbs a day. America just keeps getting fatter. The “Food is a Drug Administration”.

      America, keep eating your grains and sugared breakfast cereals. Definitely don’t read up on what a total kook and eugenicist W. K. Kellogg was.

      • Johnny B

        Are you a horse? Don’t use horse medicine. It’s simple.

        The FDA didn’t approve antibodies for Covid treatment. They pushed through an EUA, which is not the same thing.

        What drugs are you on to post such nuttiness?

        • Dr Benway

          Johnny B,

          Ivermectin is not just “horse medicine”.

          Do you know anything about it? No, you don’t.

          All you know is that Rochelle Walensky and a bunch of doctors who don’t have or have never had any patients are micromanaging medical doctors in the front lines, and you’re in favor of doing whatever the CDC says.

          • Tim

            You asked a question, then answered it for Johnny. You’re no expect…just a control freak.

            Go inject some bleach, already.

    Johnny B,

    Ivermectin has been dosed to humans in the third world as an anti-parasitic 3.7 billion times. No side effects. And it can’t be used in a so-called “pandemic” because it isn’t SAFE? Meanwhile the “vaccine” is basically a clotting inciter. Healthy young people are stroking-out right and left, miscarriages right and left, and great-grandma is menstruating again. But Big Pharma and their operatives at the CDC and Fauci will look you in the eye and tell you that Ivermectin is “unsafe”.

    • Juliet

      You’re not a doctor. Stop trying to act like one. While you’re at is, take those third-world emergency antidotes and see what happens. As much as people pushed back against the vaccines, they are open to use this “remedy” without question? That makes zero sense. The vaccines have now been fully approved. This has not.

      Let me see – trust the CDC and Fauci or you, some anonymous online fake doctor?

      • Dr Benway


        You know nothing about the discovery of avermectin by Satoshi Ōmura and the development of ivermecton by William C. Campbell by 1981 for animal use and 1987 for human use, and how they won the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize for physiology or medicine.

        You know nothing, but you blindly believe a lifelong bureaucrat like Fauci. Why don’t you do a little research on Fauci during the AIDS years? Go find the criticism of Fauci by the guy who invented the PCR test.

        The CDC. They tell diabetics that they should eat 200 to 225 carb grams a day. That’s insane. That’s a great way to keep somebody permanently diabetic and miserable. It’s on the CDC web site if you don’t believe me.

        Go ahead and dismiss me. What do you know? You’re like an extra from the movie Idiocracy.

        • Juliet

          Your responses that try to diminish me, bash others, and divert to other topics show that you’re the one who really has no clue.

          I’ve been following the rules from the CDC and Fauci during this pandemic and never got sick.

          Let me repeat what you may have missed earlier –

          Trust the CDC and Fauci or you, some anonymous online fake doctor?

          Yeah, that’s a no-brainer. Go back under your bridge, you disinformation troll.

          • Warren 2B True

            I’m with you, Julie, That guy is a whacko. I’ll stay with the real experts and continue to live a healthy life.

          • IVMMETA

            Do a little research Juliet, Dr Benway is correct about Ivermectin. You don’t need to be a doctor to know the history of it. there have been 63 trials involving 613 scientists and 26,398 patients, 31 randomized controlled trials. Up to 86% improvement in prophylaxis, early treatment, late treatment for covid-19.

        • John Bowen

          You didn’t dispute the assertion that you aren’t a real doctor. Well?

          • Juliet

            Yeah, “Dr Benway”, what about that? Are you someone who had graduated medical school and passed required exams to be legally called a doctor? If so, what is your specialty of practice?

    Great comment! If only common sense and informed critical thinking such as you have demonstrated here was as contagious as covid..
