The results of a new study.

Quote:
A surprising new study found that the controversial antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine helped patients better survive in the hospital.

I think the Lancet & NEJM have both retracted their studies based on non-verifiability. https://bgr.com/2020/06/05/coronavir...udy-retracted/

Random sampling errors in small study groups make it difficult to draw conclusions one way or the other.
No proof it works. No proof it doesn't work....And maybe it does work, but only for a specific subset of pts.

And their rush to publish was based on ...?

Nah, it couldn't have been bias.

Maybe a desire to prevent healthy people from using it as a supposed preventative measure as President Trump mentioned that he was supposedly doing.

I'm all for having sick patients use it in a clinical setting, but it is a drug that does have some known nasty side effects. It's not a drug that healthy people should be taking "just because."

It’s still a prescription drug and not something people can buy over the counter. I agree that Trump should not have encouraged people to take it but rushing studies to try to discourage use was a terribly irresponsible move.

Make your own choice. I took it back in March for arthritis and now I have heart damage. Well-known side effect.

I don't like pharma drugs, take a couple of minor ones and that's it...BUT reading more on
Dr. Risch's info on this drug. Now we have a political person, Gohmert, taking it with Zinc and erythromycin.

https://www.foxnews.com/transcript/d...oxychloroquine

And yes it comes with a laundry list of possible side effects.

One of the news people I listen to a lot takes supplements and zinc and quinine tonic for prevention.

I thought I recall seeing a post to the effect "What would you take if you came down with CV" and haven't found it yet.
