What drug companies did not want you to know about Aspirin and Advil in asthma and COPD?
What you are about to read in our blog will most likely change your entire outlook about these meds!
Beneatha: In mid-March and when Corona erupted, the household rumor was that Advil and Aspirin may predispose us to COVID-19 infection. What I cannot understand is how Aspirin and Advil are related to COVID-19, and what makes Tylenol a better choice compared to them?
Dr. E: The truth is that only part of what you’ve heard is correct, but the devil is in the details, which are for most part concealed from the laypersons. The unqualified generalizations that are loudly and widely broadcast by people in social media only add fuel to the frenzy. The public’s panic mostly stems from widespread use of Aspirin and Advil as anti-inflammatory and anti-thrombotic agents by so many people across the globe. Meanwhile, drug companies that make Tylenol (acetaminophen) are provided with a once in lifetime opportunity to promote their own products at the expense of the other two. Let me say it, and let me say it out loud, these three drugs and the long list of their look-alikes come with so much baggage that their producers wish that you may never learn about them.
