COVID-19 & Use of Ibuorofen

Posted on March 24th, 2020

Use of ibuprofen 

There has been a lot of public interest in whether to use ibuprofen to relieve the symptoms of Covid-19. Public Health England have issued the following guidance:

 

  • There is not currently enough information on ibuprofen use and covid-19 to advisepeople to stop using ibuprofen. Currently there is no published scientific evidence that ibuprofen increases the risk of catching covid-19 or makes the illness worse. There is also no conclusive evidence that taking ibuprofen is harmful for other respiratory infections.
  • Most people with COVID-19 will have a mild illness and some people may need to take medicines, such as paracetamol, to help with raised temperature, headache and other pains; always follow the instructions on the label if you do take these medicines and do not exceed the stated dose.
  • Patients who have been prescribed NSAIDs for long-term health problems should continue to take them as directed by their healthcare professional.
