Recently, there has been some confusion, especially after the WHO’s stance on ibuprofen for the treatment of coronary symptoms.
After initial advice on avoiding ibuprofen to treat symptoms of the new corona virus , the World Health Organization changed its mind and announced that it would no longer recommend ibuprofen for the treatment of cavid symptoms.
The confusion began after French Health Minister Vran Olivier announced on Twitter that taking anti-inflammatory drugs (such as ibuprofen or cortisone) could exacerbate Covidus infection.
He recommended that paracetamol (acetaminophen) be used instead of ibuprofen to treat fever associated with the disease.
Currently, the NHS recommends only paracetamol,
even though it acknowledges that there is no strong evidence of coronary symptoms exacerbate after ibuprofen use.
BMJ Medical Journal also states that ibuprofen should be avoided to control the symptoms of cavid;
Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
This group of medicines usually has three main uses: they help reduce inflammation, pain and fever. These medications may also be used for inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. However, paracetamol also helps to treat pain and fever.
Fever is above normal body temperature and is one of the symptoms of cavitation
with persistent cough and shortness of breath. The body develops a fever as a defense mechanism.
In this case, the immune system produces a chain of molecules that tell the brain to fight off infection, generate more heat and keep the body warmer. While fever during infection is part of the body’s defense mechanism, a severe increase in body temperature can be fatal and should be treated.
Fever is also annoying to the patient, as it is often accompanied by chills, headaches, nausea and stomach upset. Taking an anti-inflammatory drug such as ibuprofen or paracetamol reduces the body’s temperature by lowering the levels of some fever molecules.
some physicians have compared paracetamol to paracetamol for conventional chest infections in comparison
to the two drugs in year 3 because they found that some patients were worse off with ibuprofen.
Ibuprofen is a common anti-inflammatory drug
What is the cause of concern about ibuprofen?
Some concerns that ibuprofen may exacerbate the symptoms of cavid 3 have come from previous studies showing that people
with other serious chest infections (such as pneumonia) exacerbated after taking a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as ibuprofen. They were getting longer.
It is difficult to determine, however, whether ibuprofen in these cases directly exacerbates the symptoms and prolongs the disease,
or whether ibuprofen and other anti-inflammatory drugs help control pain, thereby increasing the severity of the disease.
Hide and prevent patients from seeking treatment sooner and treatment delayed. It may also be related to the anti-inflammatory effects of ibuprofen. One theory is that anti-inflammatory drugs can cause perturbations in some of the body’s immune responses, although this has not been proven with ibuprofen.
two studies by French researchers are warning doctors and pharmacists
that they should not prescribe NSAIDs when they see symptoms of chest infection,
and that NSAIDs should not be give to children who have a viral infection.
There was no agreement as to why ibuprofen could worsen chest infections, but both studies reported that patients who took NSAIDs to treat their condition worsened.
In a recent paper published in The Lancet , some scientists have suggested that ibuprofen’s damage to Kovid disease is due to its effects on an enzyme called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE2). Of course,
such an issue has not yet been substantiate. This issue raised additional concern for patients who were taking ACE inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers to treat their heart problems.
Several prominent organizations have warned patients not to stop taking their usual medications because of approved theories. Because the new coronavirus is a new type of virus , there is currently no evidence to suggest that ibuprofen is harmful or exacerbates the treatment of Covidian symptoms.
Research is progressing rapidly, but gives the inaccurate information about Covidone and ibuprofen use,
it is prudent to refrain from taking ibuprofen if possible, especially those with other health problems. Anyone who thinks they may be infected with Covid-1 can use paracetamol to control fever instead of ibuprofen unless otherwise prescribed by a doctor or pharmacist.
At the same time, researchers from various scientific centers are examining the available evidence. Naturally, people who are prescribed anti-inflammatory medications because of their particular health problems should consult their physician about this and should not stop taking their medication without a doctor’s prescription.
Paracetamol can also treat fever and pain
It is also important to note that ibuprofen and NSAIDs can cause stomach ulcers
and indigestion and may be beneficial for some patients with heart disease,
kidney and liver problems and asthma patients, as well as those over the age of 5 and older.
Those who consume too much alcohol may not be suitable. These medicines should not be used by people who have high blood pressure and women who are planning to become pregnant or are pregnant.
In some cases, paracetamol may be better. It can also treat pain and fever. Although it may take up to an hour for the drug to work, it is safe for women who are pregnant or breast-feeding and can be taken with or without food. Some people, such as those with liver or kidney problems, should be careful about taking paracetamol and consulting their physician.
The usual dose of paracetamol for adults is one or two 4 mg tablets
, which is ultimately consume up to 2 times over 2 hours a day
and should be at least 1 hour between drug appointments. Most people use syrup to deliver paracetamol to children.
The amount of medication gives to a child depends on their age, but in this case paracetamol should be take at least 2 times in 2 hours and should be at least 2 hours in between.
Pharmacies in some countries have been paracetamol deficient and have been forces to ration their sales. It is recommended that during this crisis, people avoid over-buying and storing medicines so that those in need are not deprived.
