Stop the Spread of Misinformation About Meds and Supplements for COVID-19
Social media is aflutter with rumors about the impact of meds and supplements on COVID-19.
Blood pressure meds. Patients are hearing that ACE inhibitors (lisinopril, etc) and ARBs (losartan, etc) increase the risk of getting COVID-19 or having serious complications from it.
The thought is that the virus that causes COVID-19 gets into cells via "ACE2 receptors," and an ACE inhibitor or ARB might increase ACE2.
