Biden’s doctor stops heart meds with COVID treatment — despite risks of blood clots

nypost.com

President Biden’s physician stopped the commander-in-chief’s use of heart medications Thursday after he began to take Paxlovid to treat COVID-19, White House officials said — despite the fact that doing so elevates the risk of dangerous blood clots.

Dr. Ashish Jha, the White House coronavirus coordinator, said at a press briefing that it’s “very standard” to discontinue the medications during a five-day regimen of the antiviral Paxlovid.

Medical experts had expressed concern about Biden’s use of blood thinner Eliquis to treat atrial fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat condition, while he takes Paxlovid. Biden also takes Crestor to lower his cholesterol.

Jha didn’t address the fact that the Food and Drug Administration specifically warns that “premature discontinuation of any oral anticoagulant, including Eliquis, increases the risk of thrombotic events,” meaning blood clots.

In 1988, Biden survived two brain aneurysms, which blood clots can cause. The drug Eliquis is marketed to lower the risk of stroke and clots for people who have atrial fibrillation.

Jha told reporters that O’Connor told him that heart medications “need to be stopped when you take Paxlovid.”

I thought they were going to invoke the 25th. I want the man out of office, but I don't want them to kill him. I want to believe there's still a sliver of a chance he'll have to answer for his corruption.

I don't recall this in Biden's released physical exam for POTUS health.

If this was Trump the media would be flipping out. The media judged the way Trump walked to Marine1 when he had covid.

Or how he carefully went down a slippery ramp as they demanded a cognitive test and accused the doctors results of being deceptive.

But Biden can be at risk for blood clots, heart failure, flub every news presser and scream like a loon---- and nothing to see here.

It's our fault. We allow it all.

Same here, but not this soon. I think KH would be worse.... but certainly would allow myself one full day of happy dancing if karma caught Joe.

He is in decline. He couldn't even read the word inquiries.

Yup. This is why numerous PMs have resigned. Why Abe was murdered in Japan.

They aren’t moving fast enough to promote the WEF agenda. Notice Biden has backed off some lately on going after Oil and Gas.

Paxlovid to treat COVID-19


I know I’m not the most informed on Covid, but this is literally the first time I have heard this medication.

I’m no doctor, but that doesn’t seem like a wise thing to do medically. If I were Brandon, I would be worried.

I've been dispensing this crap for the past couple weeks along with another antiviral, Lagevrio. When you fill a prescription, the drug being given is cross checked with all the other meds in your profile for drug interactions. All my years working, I've never seen something interact with so many different drug classes. There are many cardiac, ED drugs, antidepressants and other classes that interact significantly with this stuff. Most of the recommendations are to discontinue all of these other meds during the 5-7 days of cold treatment. Really? you want to stop you heart meds and psych meds for a cold treatment?

I'm not sure if they actually put the man on this stuff or its another ploy to make a shiton of cash by saying "look the president is taking this stuff, so should you." Dr. Jha is a fricking idiot. Rarely are any meds stopped to use another med. Ever. Hey though, sales are brisk af, so guess its working. As a pharmacist, I can't really recommend this to anyone really...unless you are the tyoe to put a bandaid on a scratch. Sheesh. FTW

When you die on meds it's because of vax interaction

So instead you stop the meds, and it's from drug cessation

Isn't that something
