The debate around the use of ibuprofen to counter coronavirus fever

As the coronavirus pandemic rages across the world, experts are divided about the usefulness of ibuprofen, a drug that is commonly used to treat common fever. People were earlier asked to stock up on medicines containing the drug, but Olivier Veran, a French Minister raised a controversy by saying anti-inflammatory drugs aggravate the infection.

It's Ibuprofen, any handful thrown into the air that hits your mouth that's the correct dosage for.....whatever ails.

In all honesty, it's better not to take either. Fevers are actually helpful to the immune system as long as they hang below 103 degrees, which is the case for most viral infections. To my patients I do not recommend taking fever reducers unless fever is greater than 103 and not going down after taking off a few layers of clothes.
