When treating coronavirus, the use of two drugs is unacceptable. Joshua Shaffzin, an American doctor and specialist in infectious diseases, told about this.
He considers it inappropriate to use antidiarrheal and decongestant drugs to treat the symptoms of COVID-19. The doctor explained that vomiting and diarrhea indicate that the gastrointestinal tract is in the process of removing bacteria.
The use of drugs can prevent this: the use of drugs will result in incomplete withdrawal of the infection. So, contained in antidiarrheal drugs, loperamide disrupts the process of removing the pathogen.
Shaffzin recommends refraining from using inhalers - the substance phenylephrine they contain can harm people with cardiovascular problems.
To improve health, the doctor recommends drinking more water and giving the body time to cope with the virus itself, writes TASS.
