COVID-19 Treatments

If you’ve tested positive for COVID-19, you may be worried about how to manage your symptoms or confused about when to seek medical care. To help you get the right treatment, here’s some information about managing your symptoms, available therapies, when to seek emergency care and what to do if you have lingering symptoms.

Currently, there is a lot of information published on the internet, social media and elsewhere that advocate for treatments unproven against COVID-19. While you should feel free to discuss and ask questions about any treatment with your provider, know that Piedmont encourages our providers to only prescribe treatments that are evidence-based.

The following are not evidence-based treatments for COVID-19 patients: 

  • Ivermectin 
  • Convalescent Plasma 
  • MMR Booster 
  • Melatonin 
  • Black Pepper & Turmeric 
  • Kineret/anakinra 
  • Pepcid/famotidine 
  • Hydroxychloroquine 
  • MATH + Protocol 
  • Nebulized budesonide 
  • Low-Dose Lung Radiation 
  • Lower Energy Shockwave Treatment 

Anecdotal evidence of the effectiveness of these treatments is correlative in nature and does not equate to evidence-based medicine.
