HOUSTON – The Food and Drug Administration has revoked its emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the coronavirus.

At Houston’s United Memorial Medical Center, dozens of COVID-19 patients have taken the drug, according to Dr. Joseph Varon, chief medical officer.

“Hydroxychloroquine works,” Dr. Varon said. “I know a number of people think that it doesn’t but we have treated more than 100 patients in the hospital with hydroxychloroquine and the patients have done well.”

Dr. Varon believes the treatment is effective, as long as it’s given early to patients and they’re closely monitored in the hospital.

“It usually takes about three to four days before you can start seeing an improvement in patients. By day four or day five, they really do better,” said Dr. Varon.

He plans to continue using the drug until he finds a better alternative.

Interestingly, the attorney reports that it would appear that hospital administrations are the most recalcitrant to the idea, even if the patients and the ICU doctor are in support.
