Politico: Drugs hyped as coronavirus treatment linked to psychiatric disorders, says EU agency

Politico: Drugs hyped as coronavirus treatment linked to psychiatric disorders, says EU agency. “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 [November 27]. 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.”
