Coronavirus: hydroxychloroquine, chloroquine and Kaletra (lopinavir & ritonavir) are subject to controlled distribution in Belgium to enhance monitoring of treatments
Hydroxychloroquine, chloroquine and Kaletra (lopinavir & ritonavir) are used to treat patients with COVID-19. The FAMHP has quarantined available stocks of these medicines to control their distribution, improve monitoring of their use and limit the risks to patients. Do not take any of these medicines without medical supervision.
If you have symptoms that might indicate an infection linked to coronavirus, paracetamol remains the first choice for cases of fever and pain.
Some painkillers (paracetamol, over-the-counter non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and acetylsalicylic acid) are often used without medical advice for pain and high temperature. To improve proper use of these drugs, the FAMHP is drawing attention to a number of precautionary measures. The FAMHP also reminds holders of marketing authorisations that directives have recently been updated as regards medication containing paracetamol.
