Hyped drugs linked to psychiatric disorders

Chloroquine and a related compound, hydroxychloroquine, have been associated with cases of psychiatric disturbances and suicidal behavior after being given to COVID-19 patients, warned the EU's drug regulator today.

The two medicines were some of the first drugs put forward as possible treatments for the coronavirus, and were famously promoted by controversial French doctor Didier Raoult and U.S. President Donald Trump. However, since then, they haven't shown to be effective in clinical studies.

The European Medicines Agency said that it had initiated a review of the drugs after receiving a notification from Spain's medicines authority, AEMPS, of six cases of mental disturbances linked to coronavirus patients who were given higher than authorized doses of the medicines.

TVNL Comments:  Lawsuits by those affected should aim directly at DonaldTrump.
