Joe Rogan rails against critics who slammed him for taking anti-parasite drug Ivermectin to treat COVID in first podcast since revealing he had the virus

 Podcasting giant Joe Rogan fought back against those who criticized his use of the anti-parasite drug Ivermectin to treat his COVID-19 infection when he returned to the air on Tuesday.

Rogan claimed that multiple doctors told him to take Ivermectin, among several other medications, to combat the virus, despite the Food and Drug Administration's insistence the drug is only meant to treat parasitic infections and not COVID.

He claims the medical cocktail helped him recover and joked that he might 'sue CNN' for slamming his use and promotion of Ivermectin. 

'They're making s*** up. They keep saying I'm taking horse dewormer. I literally got it from a doctor. It's an American company. They must know that's a lie.'

Rogan, who tested positive for COVID-19 last week, also said he was upset that some of the news agencies that covered the story did not highlight his recovery. 

Last week, CNN's medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner warned that what Rogan had done was dangerous. 

'He's promoting, kind of a crazy jumble of, you know, sort of folk remedies and internet-prescribed drugs,' Reiner said . 'He should have more sense.'

Though used in horses and barn animals, people can use Ivermectin to combat parasites and skin diseases, but not COVID-19. 

Large doses of this drug, however, can cause serious harm to humans if ingested, doctors warned. 

Calls for Ivermectin poisoning saw a 163% increase to a total of 1,143 throughout the U.S. this year, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers

At the end of August, there were a total of 459 calls regarding Ivermectin to poison control centers. 

The FDA had urged people to stay away from the drug in a tweet last month, writing, 'You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y'all. Stop it.'

Rogan argued that Ivermectin was effective in repelling viruses and cited that the Japanese chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association has recommended doctors use the drug. The Japanese government has not backed the chairman's suggestion nor listed it as an official treatment for COVID-19.

Rogan continued to insinuate that the drug works to combat COVID-19 on his podcast and hinted that there was an alleged conspiracy by the vaccine manufacturers to make anyone who takes Ivermectin 'look crazy.' 

'But what's really crazy is how much better I got. I got better really quickly b**ch.'  

Rogan also faced opposition on Twitter as detractors slammed him, saying that he should not promote Ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19. 

'Stop listening to Joe Rogan for medical advice, I scream into the shapeless void,' tweeted Charlotte Clymer.

Joe Lockhart, the former White House press secretary for Bill Clinton, tweeted: 'Once again, Joe Rogan is misleading millions of people and thousands will die.

'He is backed by some of the biggest corporations in the world.'

Addressing Spotify, Lockhart writes: 'Imagine if he was leading to the deaths of blacks or Latinos or Jews or Muslims.

'But I guess killing the stupid is ok.'

Rogan had previously drawn ire from critics for speaking out against mask mandates and vaccine passports. In April, he encouraged those who were young and healthy not to take the COVID-19 vaccine, though he later denied that he was an 'anti-vaxxer.' 

He also revealed that he had scheduled an appointment to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, but he had then put it off after the CDC paused administering the shot due to reports of blood clots. 

Last month, the ex-Fear Factor host blasted vaccine passports, saying that requiring Americans to show proof of vaccination in order to gain entry into restaurants, airplanes, bars and sporting events moves the country 'one step closer' to dictatorship.

Last week on Wednesday, Rogan  offered a 'wonderful, heartfelt thank you to modern medicine for pulling me out of this so quickly and easily.'

'I got back from the road Saturday night feeling very weary,' Rogan told his 13 million followers on Instagram on last Wednesday. 

'I had a headache, and I just felt run down.' 

Rogan said that out of an abundance of caution, he 'separated' himself from his family and 'slept in a different part of the house.'

'Throughout the night I got fevers and sweats...I knew what was going on,' said Rogan, who is also a commentator for UFC mixed martial arts bouts.

'I got up in the morning, got tested, and it turns out I got COVID,' Rogan said.

Rogan said that his treatment involved 'throwing the kitchen sink' at the illness.

He added that he was also administered an NAD and vitamin drip for three days in a row, saying the treatment left him feeling ‘great.’

‘I really only had one bad day,’ he said. ‘Sunday sucked.’

He added: ‘But Monday was better. Tuesday felt better than Monday. And today I feel good.’

‘I actually feel pretty f*****g good.’

Rogan said that because of his diagnosis he was forced to reschedule a stand-up gig set to take place in Nashville this Friday.

That show will instead be moved to October 24.
