Azithromycin, Chloroquine & Hydroxychloroquine

Recommended Posts

With the above three meds, what would a person need to have stored at home as a potential treatment for Covid-19? How many tablets/packs of each should be stored at home per person?

Stop listening to Trump. Azithromycin is an antibiotic. Covid-19 is a virus. The other two are unproven as of yet with only anecdotal evidence. Wait for real testing. If you like, stockpile some but don't take any. The other drug refimivir (something like that) that they hoped worked has failed tests.

 

Best bet, get a pneumonia vaccination. its pneumonia that kills them so that's what you really need to stop.

Viral pneumonia not bacterial pneumonia but you wouldn't want both at the same time

I've read that doctors said that a pneumonia vaccination is useless against Covid19, firstly because that's for a bacterial pnemonia and Covid19 is viral. Secondly is that the Covid19 strain needs to be in the vaccine and there's no such vaccine yet in this world that covers Covid19.

Zero.

 

None of these are approved for use, there is research ongoing but evidence so far is sparse and mostly anecdotal.

 

80-90% of people with COVID need no treatment, and self-treating with drugs like this are likely to do more harm than good.

 

If you are in the minority who have a severe case, you need to be in a hospital.

 

 

According to doctors in China and some EU countries they've been treating patients with Hydroxychloroquine together with Azithromycin and it has worked on them, but it's only a small sample size.

 

Why would there be doctors around the globe buying it for themselves and their families just in case, and other doctors taking it to protect themselves from getting Covid19 in Western countries? I would presume they must be doing it for some reason.

 

I think it's better to have some stockpiled in case there's none in the hospitals. Do you trust that Thailand will have enough of those meds if there are tens of thousands of patients with Covid19 in hospital? Or will they only offer those meds to the people with the most money? My motto is better safe than sorry later when there's none left. The only thing is I don't know how much to stockpile for each person. Don't want too much and don't want too little.

People are going to stockpile it themselves just like they've doing it all around the world. People are going to protect themselves and their families first.

As a health professional myself I know a LOT of doctors and nurses, including many in epicenters like New York.

 

None are stockpiling these drugs.

 

None would be likely to self prescribe them. It is simply not a good idea.

As a not health professional and I don't know from doctors, I think your response is basic common sense but thanks for that as of course you do have credibility here.

 

As far as stocking up, well I have stocked up on my usual scrips out of concern of supply chain problems from India. China, and Europe.

 

As far as those meds mentioned, I can see the logic of stocking them IF we knew they were actually effective and safe treatment. But, alas, as Sheryl said and as Dr. Fauci has said as well, at this point we know nothing of the kind. May as well stock up on black licorice.

Self medicating without the appropriate training can be very dangerous

Chloroquine in a too high a dosage(double) can kill you. severely affect your eyesight, or lead to renal failure. 

" Malaria drug touted as coronavirus treatment by Trump and Elon Musk can be deadly, China finds"

https://fortune.com/2020/03/20/malaria-drug-coronavirus-treatment-chloroquine-trump-musk-deadly-china/

PS: Elon Musk never endorsed the use of Chloroquine, including his name in the article is a huchet job for what reason I am unsure. This is what he said , which IMO is reasonable, 

"Maybe worth considering chloroquine for C19 "

Chloroquine in any event is now out of stock in Bangkok pharmacies, and has been placed on the restricted medications list, only available at a licenced clinic or hospital.

It's not Trump idea.
