No NSAIDs: Aspirin is recommended for certain patients with cardiac conditions. Please review with your physician. Motrin and NSAIDs are not recommended during the infection, and Tylenol is preferred. Some patients who have been treated with NSAIDs while infected with SARS CoV-2 have had more complications. Aspirin does not prevent the illness.

COVID 19 concerns: The World Health Organization reversed their recommendation on not using NSAID's if COVID 19 positive. However, Aspirin is not being recommended for prophylaxis against hypercoagulation/ clots in case a person without specific needs for Aspirin becomes infected with COVID 19.
