Hydroxychloroquine plus Azithromycine

FDA has just approved this for treatment of covid-19 after their arm was twisted by the President.

(Yesterday) Detroit man was dying of Covid-19, they treated him with hydroxychloroquine +Azithromycine (an antibiotic?) and he walked out of the hospital in hours.

The FDA has been referring to the French data on the drug's effectiveness as a treatment for covid-19 as "an anecdote" - because only the FDA can perform trials and approve drugs - but it was indeed a trial with a control group in France. 79 out of 80 patients treated with the drug showed rapid improvement. 79 out of frigging 80.

Look at covid-19 data in France and China, both of which seem to be using this drug.

Can it be? This pandemic -as we currently know it - may actually be over soon. God, I hope so.

Amen to that!

Thanks for this, Gordon! We could use some good news right about now.

Many hospitals around the country have been treating with hydroxychloroquine for weeks. If this was a panacea I'd think you'd have the doctors at U Washington and Boston medical screaming from the mountaintops for everyone to take it. It may improve outcomes, and it may even be useful as a prophylactic. More data is needed. But I'll say this, the nutjob claiming he went from gasping for breath to completely healed 3 hours after taking it has ulterior motives. There's zero chance a medication thought to inhibit viral replication takes someone from gasping for breath to healed in 3 hours.

Hydroxychloroquine plus Azithromycine

A/k/a Hydroxychloroquine plus a Z-Pack.

I thought that this was the de-facto "standard" treatment, with zinc, vitammin C and restorative fluids as supplemental measures.

Don't come around here tossing around skepticism & logic 😉

Isn't it approved for testing? That's a long way from saying it's been approved for treatment. Some 1200 people have been on the protocol for a few days and NY isn't reporting any miracle cures. What they are reporting is a shortage of the drug for people who need it to keep their lupus in check.

I am not naming or commenting on any individual politician. I am just saying that, over the years, the bureaucracy at the FDA has built an empire of tens of thousands of bureaucrats based on lengthy and expensive trials and their exclusive right to approve drugs. Then the covid-19 virus arrives and the nation turns into a M.A.S.H. unit with a million "incoming" patients - and the FDA is trying to empire-build by clinging to their "no urgency" business-as-usual style.

Ex: A company that has developed a covid-19 vaccine announced yesterday that the clinical trial on their new vaccine is now scheduled to begin in September. Really? Start in September??!!!? That doesn't help much if I'm dead by July.
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.

"Updated: 3/30/20 at 10:15 p.m.

Topline: The Food and Drug Administration on Sunday issued an emergency authorization for experimental coronavirus treatments using chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, anti-malaria drugs touted by President Donald Trump despite inconclusive clinical proof of their effectiveness.

The Department of Health and Human Services said Sunday hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine products can “be distributed and prescribed by doctors to hospitalized teen and adult patients with Covid-19, as appropriate, when a clinical trial is not available or feasible.”

Well hopefully it helps. We could definitely use a break.
