Something like chloroquine is in gin and tonic

<< < (2/5) > >>

Hurricane:
I found diet tonic water in a couple of stores for less than $1 per liter bottle. Water, quinine, aspartame. Stores were mostly out of the non-diet, which had high-fructose corn syrup. The Good Stuff, with sugar, was over $5 for a 4-pack of maybe-8oz. bottles.

What are the dosages and warnings for tonic water for this virus? Any guesses?

I’m not a doctor but I thought I read 500mg to 1000mg the first week. Actually maybe it’s something like 500mg per week for 5 weeks for prevention and it’s 1000mg for treatment if you are sick

Here’s a quote from Winston Churchill:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/slate.com/technology/2013/08/gin-and-tonic-kept-the-british-empire-healthy-the-drinks-quinine-powder-was-vital-for-stopping-the-spread-of-malaria.amp

More interestingly, the gin and tonic has a storied history that places it at the heart of the largest empire the world has ever known. Indeed, it is not too much of a stretch to say that the gin and tonic was as essential a weapon for the British Empire as the Gatling gun. No less an authority on imperial power than Winston Churchill once declared, “The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen’s lives, and minds, than all the doctors in the Empire.”

Mr. Bill:
Apparently I am prescient.

Quinine:

Chloroquine:

They have some chemical features in common, but even if you're not a chemist, you can see they are wildly different.

North and South Kivu are home to the largest cinchona forests in the world. The bark of these trees, which were introduced by the Belgians, contains quinine, a drug that cures malaria. (It also tastes pleasantly bitter when dissolved in fizzy water and served with gin and a slice of lime.)

A rich and wonderful history of quinine – the cure for malaria.

More than any previous medicine, though, quinine forced physicians to change their ideas about treating illness. Before long, it would change the face of Western medicine.
Using fresh research from the Vatican and the Indian Archives in Seville, as well as hitherto undiscovered documents in Peru, Fiammetta Rocco describes the ravages of the disease, the quest of the three Englishmen who smuggled cinchona seeds out of South America, the way quinine opened the door to Western imperial adventure in Asia, Africa and beyond, and why, even today, quinine grown in the eastern Congo still saves so many people suffering from malaria.
