Can Corona patients take blood pressure medication?


Contrary to previous studies, recent scientific research conducted at the American University of Pennsylvania showed that the use of blood pressure medication in people with Covid-19 is considered safe, according to the local “Kyw Radio” website in Philadelphia.The study included dozens of people with Covid-19 and blood pressure, all of them had to enter hospitals, but some (75) took blood pressure medication, while the rest (77) stopped taking it.

The study was published in the medical journal The Lancet Respiratory Medicine.Dr. Goradna Cohen of the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania said that the study showed “no difference between patients who took blood pressure medication and those who stopped taking it, in terms of disease risk and severity,” whether it ended with entering the intensive care unit, artificial respiration, or death. .

Blood pressure is one of the common diseases in the world, and there are about 48 million people in America who use blood pressure medication.

That is why, Jordana says, she and her team decided to conduct this study, warning that stopping blood pressure medication could lead to an increased risk of heart and kidney disease in the long term.
