In May, Trump disclosed that he was taking daily doses of hydroxychloroquine to ward off coronavirus after consulting the White House doctor.
The eldest son of US President Donald Trump had posted a video on Monday of doctors talking about hydroxychloroquine, that was removed by Twitter as per its misinformation policy on Covid-19.
The US Food and Drug Administration said its decision is based on new information, including clinical trial data results, that have led it to conclude that the drugs may not be effective to treat COVID-19.
Donald Trump aggressively pushed the drug beginning in the first weeks of the outbreak and stunned medical professionals when he revealed he took the drug preemptively against infection.
The Lancet had published a statement expressing concern over the study after over 100 scientists from across the world flagged discrepancies in the research.
The recommendation means doctors will soon be able to resume giving hydroxychloroquine to patients enrolled in the UN health agency's study.
The study, published in the journal Heart Rhythm, found that the drug made it "surprisingly easy" to trigger irregular beats in the heart, or arrhythmias.
As was mentioned in the earlier advisory, the drug against the infection is also recommended for all asymptomatic healthcare workers involved in containment and treatment of COVID-19 and household contacts of laboratory confirmed cases.
