James M. Lloyd, Esq.
I tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, July 7. I had some symptoms on Sunday, July 5, and then a bad cough, deep bronchial hacking by Monday, July 6, so I went to urgent care and was told the “great” news. I’m 62 years old, and except for being slightly overweight, am in good health; although I have a history of bronchitis.
Once the symptoms took hold, it was hell; I could only cough, not breathe. My breathing became faster and shallower. On Saturday I thought I was drowning, unable to breathe.
I saw a video by Dr. Richard Bartlett from Texas saying that an anti-inflammatory steroid Budesonide was working for his patients with Covid 19.
On Sunday an urgent care doctor (via zoom) refused to prescribe Budesonide. I received no explanation, just “I don’t prescribe that.” Rather she prescribed Qvar, an anti-inflammatory inhaler, not budesonide. It did not do a thing. My breathing was a pattern of breathe in, cough out, for hours.
On Sunday I begged the same doctor to prescribe it, and instead got an albuterol inhaler. Again, No relief.
On Monday, after nearly (and only half in jest) threatening a malpractice lawsuit if I died (my primary care doctor knows I’m a lawyer) I convinced my primary care to prescribe budesonide. He also prescribed albuterol liquid and a nebulizer.
On Tuesday, July 14, at 1:00 pm my O2 level was 81%, and I started the Budesonide (the pharmacy had to order it and it took a day to get it), using a double dose every hour for 4 hours. After 4 hours I was able to breathe without coughing every breath. A miracle in my book. My O2 level jumped to 91%. I continued to improve and on July 27, I tested negative and again on July 30.
This treatment worked for me. I thank god I watched that video. I believe Dr. Bartlett saved my life. God bless him.
Strangely the video that I saw, which I believe saved my life, was removed from YouTube due to an alleged improper dissemination of Covid treatment. Once I found out that the video was removed, I expressed my horror and absolute disdain with YouTube for not only violating the constitutional rights of free speech in this country but exercising censorship for those who have contracted the virus but did not know about Budesonide.
I was also very surprised to hear Dr. Fauci state in an interview with Matthew McConaughey (leaving aside how Matthew McConaughey has the medical or even journalistic background to interview Dr. Fauci) that Budesonide had no effect and was just a placebo. I sent an email to Dr. Fauci requesting an explanation because Budesonide worked for me l, but have not had a response; no surprise there. If Budesonide is a placebo then I pray to God that every medicine I take from now until the end of my life has the same placebo effect as budesonide.
If I had not seen the video of Dr. Bartlett‘s success and if I had not had the wherewithal to fight, to advocate, and finally to demand that I be prescribed the budesonide, I believe that I would have been in the hospital on a ventilator and probably would not be writing this letter.
Managed care in United States is in a deplorable state. My cousin resigned his practice in Louisville Kentucky because he became merely an administrator and not a treater of illness.
I remain shocked that the Budesonide treatment has not been more widely circulated. I am a logical person trained to get to the bottom of things, trained to be precise and to state my case in front of a jury. I’m no conspiracy theorist but I would not have a very difficult time in convincing a jury that something is rotten in the state of medicine in this country. It is beyond belief that successful protocols are not disseminated among treating physicians. It borders on the criminal to think that successful protocols from hands-on treating physicians are not disseminated among other treating physicians, particularly those who are on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19. Rather, informational videos and informational websites that would at least give people who have Covid or who have loved ones who have Covid ammunition to fight this virus are censored, banned or deleted.
BUDESONIDE VIA A NEBULIZER. IT WORKS.
If I had started Budesonide the day I tested positive I believe my course would have been far far easier.
