W. Niederhut Posted March 19, 2020 Author Share Posted March 19, 2020 FYI. I'm posting this as a public service announcement for the forum. I received a news alert today from the British Medical Journal (BMJ) advising docs that febrile patients with COVID-19 should be treated with acetaminophen (Tylenol) instead of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, etc.) * NSAIDs may worsen the course of coronavirus respiratory infections. * Covid-19: ibuprofen should not be used for managing symptoms, say doctors and scientists BMJ 2020; 368 doi: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.m1086 (Published 17 March 2020) Cite this as: BMJ 2020;368:m1086 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
