Joshua Schaffzin, M.D., from Cincinnati Children's Hospital, USA, has listed drugs that should not be used during the course of covid-19.

The advice of an American physician leads the portal Yahoo life. The doctor recommended abandoning antidiarrheal drugs containing loperamide, because, the expert explained, such medicines will slow down the intestines, which means that bacteria and inflammation will leave the body more slowly. On Shaffzin's recommendation, it is better to drink water and not interfere with the natural process.

In addition, it is undesirable to use inhalers. The physician believes that if the patient does not have asthma, then using them is dangerous, since they are more likely to harm the work of the heart than benefit the body. The doctor clarified that each drug containing pheniflerin is dangerous for heart disease, and the substance is included in many nasal sprays.

“All they do is cause a blockage of small blood vessels in the nose, which reduces blood flow”, - the specialist says.

According to him, it is especially dangerous for people with high blood pressure.

Earlier, the head of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency (FMBA) Veronika Skvortsova said that Russia has developed and patented two newest medications against covid that have no world analogues.

Before that, Alexander Gintsburg, head of the National Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology named after N.F. Gamaleya, where the first vaccine against COVID-19 "Sputnik V" was developed, spoke about the development in this institution of a new drug for the treatment of coronavirus based on antibodies.
