I don't know of any others. We have anti-malaria drugs being trialled in two NHS hospitals and the U.S is keen on it.

There is no proof that any drug can cure or prevent infection with the coronavirus. But some reports say hydroxychloroquine combined with the antibiotic azithromycin can help patients.

Hydroxycloroquine ideally is better, suppress acute attacks of malaria, all side effects....... are not the best. Azathioprine

I took hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) for years for Systemic Lupus. It is specifically prescribed to suppress immune response. While it may be good for the instance when Covid 19 attacks ones own cells, it doesn't seem to me that not allowing the body's immune system to do its job is a good idea. I'm just saying.

May I ask? ..what was the daily dosage. And do you know what the dosage is for arthritis? Or range of dosage?

Sweetie, this is a dangerous drug and I'm no longer taking it. i don't remember my dosage and there may now be better treatments for RA. For osteoarthritis, I think the recommended drug therapy is still NSAIDS (anti-inflammatory drugs). Several over the counter. Be careful.
