A friend told me today that taking naproxen or other anti inflammatory meds are not advised whilst this virus is about, if true how do we cope without them!
Naproxen: A friend told me today that taking naproxen... - NRAS
Couldn't get any Paracetamol in Tesco again today. Notice up listing things that were not available. I asked how long it would be until they had any Paracetamol and was told that they had no idea, they cannot get any anywhere and that their suppliers are totally out of them. I was also told that everyone is in the same boat.
Word of advice... Stop listening to friends who have no medical qualifications .....if you are seriously worried about any of the drugs you are taking .....speak to your rheumatology nurse or your GP.
If any rules had suddenly been applied to any of the drugs we are taking our doctors would have made us aware immediately...& NRAS would have put out very visible warnings.
This comes from a tweet by the French Minister of Health, which sparked off a storm.... (their ministers can be as stupid as UK ones).
After much scientific to and fro it seems that the advice would be bettr phrased that anti-inflammatories are not a recommended self-medication to bring down a fever IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OF COVID 19.
Hey, I’m in the early stages of being diagnosed with RA, I was prescribed Naproxen today. They wouldn’t have written me a prescription for it today if there was any doubt of it’s safety. As others have said don’t make changes unless told to by your doctor. There’s so much wrong advice floating around in general at the moment, it’s all coming from well meaning people but stick with your doctors advice.
