Should I continue with my ACE-1/ARB medication?

Monday, 30 March 2020

We understand that there have been some concerns surrounding the use of commonly used BP drugs called ACE-Is and ARBs and a link to increased risk and severity of Covid-19. Please be reassured that there is a lack of evidence supporting this, and the European Society of Cardiology strongly advises patients to not to stop these medications because of Covid-19.

Please see the below link to more information on this matter.
