Here is what I received today about Advil, and other NSAIDS.
This makes sense to me and I will tell you why below:
My friends dad just got this from a nurse at NYU. I’m just passing it along to everyone
Information from Vienna’s laboratory studying COVID-19 say vast majority of people who died had ibuprofen/Advil in their system so do not take it!! Those who recovered did not take ibuprofen so if you have symptoms, take Paracetamol only!!! Looks like this virus thrives on ibuprofen so don’t do it and tell everyone you can!!!
Please pass this information on to everyone in each family. I don’t want to miss anyone so share as much as you can. Or copy and paste!
I just spoke with my friend who is a nurse at VGH (Vancouver) and they just learnt that Advil makes the virus 10x worse. Tylenol ONLY for the time being. She said Advil kickstarts the virus into pneumonia.
She also said they are not releasing the correct number of cases on the news and they have patients coming in everyday and some currently on ventilators. Soon they won’t have enough room in the hospitals to treat patients and will have to turn people away. They’ve cancelled all surgeries to use the ORs for available ventilators, but it still won’t be enough.
She also said she found some people in there 40s and 50s who were previously healthy to be on ventilators and having major difficulty breathing because they took Advil.
Also 4 doctors at VGH are now infected and she said she has never seen her doctors so worried before. So please no Advil and stay safe!!!
There are a few articles online
No Advil or any NSAIDS!!!
– clay haas says this is absolutely true and to steer clear of advil, motrin, aleve, or ibuprofen
I was taught that NSAIDS work by shutting off the inflammation response in the body by shutting down prostaglandin 2 production (inflammation controllers). The problem is they also effect Prostaglandin 1 and 3 which are our immune response controllers.
We are better off letting your own immune system create the fever. It’s the fever (heat) that these viruses are very fragile too. Don’t mess with the body’s natural response to these viruses.
