The World Health Organization is unable to recommend stopping ibuprofen when dealing with COVID-19 symptoms. The organization announced this in its official Twitter account.
“At this time, based on the information available, WHO cannot recommend not taking ibuprofen,” the statement said.
The organization points out that discussions were held on the use of this drug with doctors who treat patients with COVID-19 and did not find side effects in ibuprofen other than those indicated in the instructions. The latter limit its use for certain groups of patients.
WHO indicates that the organization is not aware of clinical or population-based research on this topic.
The use of ibuprofen for COVID-19 has caused widespread discussion in recent days. The Minister of Health of France spoke out against the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to relieve the symptoms of a new coronavirus infection. He was supported by a number of doctors and scientists: many experts consider paracetamol safer. You can learn more about their arguments from our material.
