The Ivermectin schedule I suggested (every 3 days) was a way to maximize the use of the 35 tabs your doctor scripted for you.
There are several ways to spread the doses out to achieve max benefit. Another method is 3 days on, 4 days off, then repeat for several cycles. Both methods are effective.
Staggering the doses targets the adults first & then the released eggs & larva after they've matured & are vulnerable to the drugs.
If you had a larger quantity of meds, I'd have devised a slightly different schedule.
I mentioned the Doxycycline as a booster because I thought you might already be taking it for your RMSF & Lyme. Thanx for verifying that.
So resume your regular daily dose of Doxycycline in addition to the zinc supplement (take it separately ~ at least 1 hr before or after the Doxy).
Zinc attacks parasites in the GI tract & heals damaged skin & tissue.
Studies show that Doxy, taken daily for 4-6 weeks, increases the cure rate of Ivermectin.
Remember to take Doxy with 8 oz water & nondairy light meal. Don't lay down for 30 min to prevent acid reflux. And no dairy, minerals, zinc, iron, vitamins, magnesium, tums, pepto bismol, or other antacids for 1 hr before or after the Doxy. If nausea occurs, eat saltine or soda crackers for relief.
