A common over-the-counter heartburn drug may help ease the symptoms of people who have COVID-19, that's according to a new study by researchers on Long Island.
Patients who took famotidine, the primary ingredient in Pepcid, saw symptoms such as breathing difficulties and abdominal pain as well as changes to smell and taste resolve more quickly than those who didn't.
The study was done by The Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research at Northwell Health in Manhasset and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
