Hydroxychloroquine The First Potential Coronavirus Treatment?
Hydroxychloroquine (brand name Plaquenil) has shown promise for COVID-19 treatment. It is an old drug introduced in the 1950s as an anti-malaria treatment. It has been used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and other autoimmune diseases.
Hydroxychloroquine and an antibiotic known as Z-Pak (azithromycin or zithromax) have been used together successfully to treat COVID-19. These drugs have been on the market a long time which means they should be widely available and a cost-effective treatment for coronavirus.
There is a reasonable amount of information regarding side effects, efficacy, and actual patient reactions to hydroxychloroquine.
CAUTION: The studies on COVID-19 have been small and larger placebo-controlled double-blind studies are needed. Fortunately there are a number of clinical trials being conducted on at this time.
Let’s hope the studies prove conclusive and hydroxychloroquine and Z-Pak are approved to treat coronovirus soon! There are actually some hospitals already using hydroxychloroquine and running down the available supply.
Our nation needs to insure that there is an abundant supply of these drugs are available.
Good News: There are already some drug companies ramping up production of hydroxychloroquine.
People are dying so a solution is needed now before vaccines can be developed. Let’s hope this it!
