“I started taking it, because I think it’s good,” Trump said. “I’ve heard a lot of good stories. All I can tell you is, so far I seem to be OK,” he added.

The drug has the potential to cause significant side effects in some patients and has not been shown to combat the new coronavirus, according to Fox LA.

Early on, Trump suggested the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine with or without the antibiotic azithromycin should be used, even though no in-depth studies have found them safe or effective, when treating COVID-19.

As a matter of fact, The Food and Drug Administration has warned against it and emphasized hydroxychloroquine should only be used for formal studies.

To further support the FDA’s claims, two large studies have been conducted with about 1,400 patients. It was found that there was no benefit when using hydroxychloroquine. Two more studies published in the journal BMJ reached the same conclusion, also according to Fox LA.

Two large observational studies, each involving around 1,400 patients in New York, recently found no benefit from hydroxychloroquine. Two new ones published Thursday in the medical journal BMJ reached the same conclusion.
