Yet more reassuring news about blood pressure medications

Yet another study (over 1 million case records) which was published today in the Lancet Digital Health has concluded, like several other studies have, that those anti-hypertensive drugs that were labelled early in this pandemic as being linked to worse outcomes with COVID-19 are in fact quite safe to take.

This study concluded that compared to a control group not taking anti-hypertensive meds, those people taking ARBS or ACE inhibitors had “no increased risk of COVID-19 diagnosis, hospitalization, or subsequent complications”.

So please continue to take your anti-hypertensive meds.

They may just save your life.
