The chief freelance clinical pharmacologist of the Volgograd Regional Healthcare Maxim Frolov warned Volgograd residents against buying "in reserve" medicines for the treatment of coronavirus infection. It makes no sense for an ordinary person to purchase drugs, since the treatment regimen is in any case selected by the doctor.

In the context of an increase in the incidence of coronavirus, Volgograd residents are concerned about the availability of drugs in pharmacies for the treatment of this disease. The townspeople are actively discussing this topic in social networks and forums. The situation with medicines was clarified by the associate professor of the Institute of Continuous Medical and Pharmaceutical Education of the Medical University, the chief freelance pharmacologist of the region, Maxim Frolov.

- The concern of Volgograd residents is largely caused by the informational background that has developed recently in the media, - said Frolov. - It is important to understand here that it makes no sense for an ordinary person to purchase drugs for coronavirus for future use. First, because most of those infected with covid carry it in a mild form, in this case, no specific medications are required. Second, although there are standardized approaches to treating infection, doctors prescribe different drug regimens to patients. They are based on the history of a particular patient, his physiological characteristics.

Many drugs for coronavirus are strictly prescription drugs, have contraindications and can have serious side effects. Therefore, they are categorically not suitable for self-treatment, warned Maxim Frolov.

- I would recommend now to Volgograd residents to buy multivitamins in order to adapt their body and strengthen immunity, - the expert gave advice.

The pharmacologist warned Volgograd residents against certain lists and treatment regimens that are circulating on the Web.

“People should be aware that taking unknown drugs can aggravate the condition,” said Maxim Frolov. - This can cause even more serious harm to the body than the consequences of the coronavirus.

We will remind, yesterday the governor Andrey Bocharov ordered to provide free medicines for patients with coronavirus among the elderly from 65 years old. This measure is dictated by the fact that the most severe course of the disease manifests itself precisely in older people. The drugs will be purchased for elderly residents of the region at the expense of the regional budget.
