Budesonide - a Silver Bullet?

Back in early August, 2020, a dismissive article was published entitled "DEBUNKING FALSE STORIES - Asthma Medicine Not Proven as COVID-19 ‘Cure’

"In a video interview shared on social media in early July, a Texas doctor promised a “silver bullet” and “cure” for COVID-19.  The answer, Dr. Richard Bartlett claimed, is an existing asthma medicine — inhaled budesonide, a corticosteroid — whose success, he suggests, negates the need for a vaccine. The video has racked up 4 million views on YouTube and its claims have migrated elsewhere. A headline shared on Facebook nearly 40,000 times, for example, claims that “COVID-19 No Vaccine Needed, There Is Already A Cure.”

"But experts say the medication has not yet been proven as an effective treatment for COVID-19 and, even if helpful, wouldn’t dismiss the need for a vaccine for the novel coronavirus that causes the disease — which would help to prevent people from becoming sick in the first place. The World Health Organization also notes that there is “currently no licensed medication to cure COVID-19.”

Now there is a peer-reviewed study out of Oxford showing the efficacy of budesonide.

Dr Richard Bartlett on the HighWire speaking of budesonide treatment

This 22-minute interview on the HighWire fills us in.

Dr. Richard Bartlett has a simple website, www.BudesonideWorks.com, with a list of providers in different states, and stories of how budesonide has worked in patients' lives.

There are currently no providers listed for Alaska; if you are wanting budesonide delivered to your home, get a telemedicine consult at SpeakWithAnMd.com.
