    Thank you Dr. Marcel Casavant for sharing the following information:

    Attached please find new peer-reviewed chloroquine/hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin treatment guidance from Ohio's Poison Control Centers. These documents address both potential side effects of therapeutic dosing and toxicities from overdoses or exploratory exposures by children.

    We encourage you to share these widely, within CMA and among your members. This guidance is not for public distribution; we will post information sheets for the general public on our web pages and social media platforms soon.

    We remind you that the nurses, pharmacists, and physicians of Ohio's Poison Control Centers are readily available to assist clinicians as well as patients dealing with potential toxicities from these medicines, or any other drugs or poisons.Call us 24/7/365 at 1-800-222-1222.

    We thank you for your work and the good work of the CMA!
