what about use of steroids for inflammation
I’m not a doctor, but I’m pretty sure steroid use would be horrible in this case because steroids work by interfering with the body’s immune system.
Nancy O’Connor we have been avoiding steroids for now because they may increase viral shedding, which wouldn’t be a good thing. The chloroquine may be helpful by blunting the immune system. People don’t understand that this drug works by decreasing your immune response, because it’s your immune response that leads to lung injury. Your body overreacts and caused increased inflammation and fluid around your alveoli, where oxygen is taken in by your body. The medicine chloroquine may help, but again, the safety of blunting the immune response while you are fighting a virus is one of the questions being asked/tested. Also, long term effects. We haven’t had nearly the time to determine what happens after taking it, but that’s not a good reason to slow usage if it prevents a death now. One thing is for sure, this drug will likely only be used on critical or higher risk to become critical patients. Most people do just fine with rest, soup and time.
There are immunomodulator drugs that can be used to moderate the body’s immune response. Doctors are learning quite a bit about treating this disease, and various drugs will be coming on line, so prospects for patients should be steadily improving.
Tell this to Cuomo, tell him to lift the ban!
Apparently you’re not up to news they’ve been giving the patient these drugs when they first come in!!! Come on keep up with the news
There is no ban and never was. Cummo put in legislation to make sure hospitals and people already prescribed would have the drugs available to them and not deplete the supply.
If I caught covid-19, I would take this combo! Better then a ventilator!
It is nowhere available now.
@Rick M There is no profits in it.
Common sense says if you can treat early, it will probably greatly reduce the need to go to the already overburdened hospitals. So if you get a positive covid-19 test result and your doctor prescribes Hydroxychloroquine and z-pak to take at home to keep you out of the hospital, you should do it. But if you live in New York State, your Governor (Little Nero) forbids that. There is blood on the hands of Andrew Cuomo.
@Bill Meck Actually that’s fake news. The legislation just makes sure the hospitals and people already prescribed for lupus have enough before people start depleting the supply. If you want to blame anyone it would be the supply chain for not having enough drugs. That’s really no ones fault as it’s not clear if it’s works but if the results are showing this much promise they will start manufacturing them like candy. Trump already called on India to help manufacture the drugs. You have to remember no good scientist or doctor can say it works until it’s proven.
Supply chain issue is the fault of those who outsourced everything to China.
Blood is on your hands of those who are delaying and blocking the usage of this drug
The left doesn’t care about human life.
Good thing no one was delaying or blocking the drug.
James JamesBond Our governor in Michigan was one of them, threatened doctors if they used the drug. Luckily the doctors told her to go to hell.

The plural of anecdote is data.
The antidote for anecdote is data.
If some people were to check the side-effects of medications that they are already taking … they would NEVER continue to take them. Life is all about risk. And, when your body is already in a CRISIS mode, you will be willing to try anything.
Double-blind, randomized placebo controlled studies are the gold standard in clinical research, but they take a long time, and with thousands dying every day we don’t have the luxury of relying solely on them. Dr Raoult’s observational studies are a vital contribution to finding and profiling pharmacological treatments, quickly.
Let’s hope his studies meet with success.
His study did not prove this treatment is any more effective than a placebo .
You need to remind Dr. Fauci of this
@A Conneely Duh! That’s because it wasn’t placebo controlled. But if he’s achieving recovery rates much higher that other hospitals, then that indicates that he’s on to something.
Look at The South Korea model where HC zPack and Zinc are routine: low mortality
My concern would be people who don’t need it hoarding it all. This could be the new toilet paper…with people who need it not being able to get any.
Secret Weapon ! – It’s not available except by a prescription. You can’t just hoard it like over-the-counter meds.
Trump tossing butt wipe was the best thing he has done.
I too am worried.. Doctors ordering it for friends, and family.. that don’t need it .
@Elaine Galea doctors trying to do this will find it is being distibuted federally. Why can’t you embrace potential benefit without jumping to problems that may or may not exist.
Thank you Dr Oz 🙏
People need to spend more time making their “IMMUNE SYSTEM STRONGER” because when DEATH COMES KNOCKING, that’s the only thing that’s gonna save you …. And that’s the reality!
Vitamin a, c, d (esp. since we are in doors), zinc (esp. for lungs), selenium, probiotics (fermented veggies), acidify stomach (apple cider vinegar/water), lots of salads and greens, fasting, meditation, light exercise, no sugar/high fructose corn syrup.
strawberries, blue berries, rasberries, seaweed, lettuce, carrots, celery
@D a v e what food is good for lungs?
Inquisitve m anything with zinc. Meats. High quality red meats. Pasture raised eggs
Inquisitve m those items are very good too 🙂
Please comment on the addition of Zinc supplements, per reports from So. Korea.
I believe this frfrfr Dr Oz is the best thank you Dr. OZ ❤❤❤❤❤❤
Big pharma’s influence on government suppressing meds that work because there’s no money in it. – Sickening.
Thank you for sharing!! And yes, isn’t it interesting how possible side effects are suddenly such an issue? Is that political posturing that’s actually happening?
Thank you Dr. Oz for this information. Clearly, the MSM is our enemy!
Why do these drugs work against many cases of Covid-19? Google these terms together: Covid-19+Hydroxychloroquine+ Cytokine Storm Syndrome and do some reading.
Please ask him to add 200 mg per day of zinc to the hydroxychloroquine azithromycin combination. It is going to make a significant difference.
Is this man even a doctor. Thought he was caught in a lie before!
