    Because it makes the disease worse, not better. Trump is a moron. He was probably lying about taking it himself.

    Nothing, the more uneducated people follow the advice of a moron in power the better.

    But before you take it, do some reading:

    https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drug-safety-and-availabi...

    He said he took it, bet he didn't and certainly isn't now.

    Pharma mafia wants to sell poisonous vaccines. Scientists now refuse the healing effect of hydrochloroquine because their families were been treaten to be killed.  hydrochloroquine was been PROVEN to help with covid-19; company BAYER stopped the production in march by intention. Take high doses of vitamin d3 with vitamin k2 and magnesium. 1gram vitamin c every hour.

    My guess is that he 'said' he was taking it to make people believe his claim that it was a wonder drug was true. My second guess is that he wasn't taking it at all. If one of its effects was to prevent people from constantly lying, he should take more.

    You have to go by the studies and here's one in which 90 patients were given hydroxychloroquine

    Out of 90 patients studied, 10 had to discontinue it because of complications.

    "Ten patients had hydroxychloroquine discontinued early because of potential adverse drug events, including intractable nausea, hypoglycemia, and 1 case of torsades de pointes."

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32356863/

    Luckily no deaths.

    Results from a French Study

    "Results: In one month, 120 reports of cardiac adverse drug reactions have been notified, 103 of which associated with hydroxychloroquine alone (86%), or associated with azithromycin (60%). Their estimated incidence is 0.77% to 1.54% of all patients, notwithstanding strong underreporting. Lopinavir-ritonavir came third with 17 reports (14%) and chloroquine fourth with 3 reports (2.5%). There were 8 sudden, unexplained or aborted deaths (7%), 8 ventricular arrhythmias (7%), 90 reports of prolonged QTc (75%) most of them "serious" (64%), 48 of which proved ≥ 500ms, 20 reports of severe conduction disorders (17%) and 5 reports of other cardiac causes (4%). Six reports derived from automedication."

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32418730/

    Not so lucky as there were 8 people that died.

    The president is N = 1 which means it's one mans opinion. 

    There is no reason for somebody who takes a drug that large well controlled studies show it doesn't work. Nothing to gain and your life to lose if you come down with a drug induced complication.

    because there have been some real side effects that make this an untried, unknown if even a cure. You think he really took that? Really?

    Nothing if that’s what the doctor and patient think is the best course of action.  

    But it’s wrong to say that it’s the cure when there’s no evidence to support it. By saying that it’s the cure, it gives people false hope.

    Statistics, Double-blind studies, peer reviewed studies- DON'T exist - anything else is just anecdotal evidence and that is about as valuable as a pint of piss.
