Coronavirus (COVID-19) and ibuprofen

25 March 2020

Doctors in the UK recommend that patients needing help with the symptoms of COVID-19 take paracetamol, not ibuprofen.

This is a precaution because there have been reports that ibuprofen may make coronavirus infection worse but there is not enough evidence to know for sure. This advice is therefore offered as a safety measure.
