Game-Changer Drug May Leave Serious Health Issues in COVID 19 Patients
Hydroxychloroquine Is Only Allowed To Be Prescribed In Life-Threatening Situations
The United States President Donald Trump has been promoting autoimmune disease drugs for some time to be used for the treatment of coronavirus. According to multiple scientists researching this game-changer drug may leave serious health issues in COVID 19 patients, including retinal and brain damage.
Hydroxychloroquine is commonly prescribed to the patients of Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and malaria and no significant study has suggested using this drug for the treatment of COVID 19 and is falsely advertised by President Trump, but this game-changer drug may leave serious health issues in COVID 19 patients and must not be taken except life-threatening situations.
Antidote for COVID 19 pandemic
The COVID 19 pandemic has spread globally and has affected 209 countries and territories across the world due to which 1, 469, 223 individuals have been infected since its first case reported in mainland China in December, 2020. COVID 19 is an upper respiratory tract infection, and its common symptoms include fever, fatigue, and cold, but in recent cases, loss of smell and taste has also been observed. Due to this crisis, a non-proven drug has been recommended, but this game-changer drug may leave serious health issues in COVID 19 patients. Since the global outbreak, 85,477 people have died, mostly residing in Italy.
Researchers around the world are working day and night to find a vaccine, which would help fight against the COVID 19 pandemic, but there has been no breakthrough as it requires a very long time duration to formulate a totally new antidote from scratch due to which multiple scientists are working with previously approved drugs that might help us against the pandemic.
Multiple drugs are under testing and human trials, which will help form a rapid treatment, but no certain development has been reported. As President Trump has been promoting hydroxychloroquine for some time, this game-changer drug may leave serious health issues in COVID 19 patients that are permanent throughout life and will affect the daily life of patients even after recovery from COVID 19. Only 316, 482 COVID 19 patients have been able to fully recover back to their optimum health. According to the new study, the antibodies of the recovered patients are being transfused into critically ill COVID 19 patients to help them recover back to health quickly.
Hydroxychloroquine and COVID 19 treatment
The autoimmune disease drugs that were used in some cases to treat patients in mainland China were helpful, but this game-changer drug may leave serious health issues in COVID 19 patients, which includes damage to the retina that will affect vision and permanent brain-damaging issues that might persist throughout life. Multiple combinations of pre-existing drugs are being used to help fight the virus, which includes a combination of hydroxychloroquine, which is used to treat malaria and HIV resistant drug.
This combination has been seen to help COVID 19 recover back to health at a faster rate, but this game-changer drug may leave serious health issues in COVID 19 patients. The Food and Drug Administration has strictly warned against the frequent usage of hydroxychloroquine due to its multiple side effects on the human body.
Some of the side effects of using hydroxychloroquine without prescription include permanent loss of vision, lupus during which body’s autoimmune cells start attacking healthy cells, heart-related issues, including myocardial infarction, muscle weakness, decreased blood glucose level, sleeplessness, hallucinations, and depression that could lead to suicide. Hydroxychloroquine will have many adverse effects on individuals having epilepsy and diabetes mellitus.
President Trump’s game-changer drug may leave serious health issues in COVID 19 patients and is advised not to be used except for the treatment of autoimmune diseases as three individuals have already died from using this without prescription in the United States and multiple individuals are hospitalized in critical conditions after suffering from heart attacks after usage of hydroxychloroquine drug.
