Covid-19 & ibuprofen

The WHO (World Health Organisation) & scientists and senior doctors have backed claims by France’s health minister that people showing symptoms of covid-19 should use paracetamol (acetaminophen) rather than ibuprofen, a drug they said might exacerbate the condition.

Which is interesting news for anyone following bariatric surgery as anti - inflammatory medication is not allow to be used following Bypass/Sleeve surgery -   It can be tolerated ok following a gastric band but must be in a liquid form only (really important)

Might be wise if you can to get in some liquid paracetamol for your cupboards

Stay safe all xx
