President will continue receiving treatment for the coronavirus at the White House, where he returned Monday after spending three days at the nearby Walter Reed National Medical Center, his doctors said.
After receiving experimental polyclonal antibodies and oxygen at the White House on Friday, the president was treated at the hospital with the antiviral drug remdesivir and the steroid dexamethasone.
His doctor Dr. Sean Conley also cautioned that the president “may not entirely be out of the woods yet.”
He also will continue taking the dexamethasone, an anti-inflammatory drug that boosts energy and reduces pain, the outlet reported, though it was unclear how long he would continue taking the steroid, which is normally prescribed for 10 days.
It was unclear if any of these are specifically meant to treat the coronavirus, and whether the president was continuing to take them in addition to his other treatments, according to the outlet.
Famotidine, which reduces stomach acid production, may be useful with coronavirus treatment, the report said.
Melatonin, a hormone primarily released by the pineal gland that regulates the sleep-wake cycle, is sometimes given as a dietary supplement to treat insomnia.
And aspirin is a blood thinner that is used to reduce the risk of blood clots. The president’s physicians did not specify whether he was taking blood thinners.
