Key Updates

Update on new legislation relating to controlled drugs during the COVID-19 pandemic
Since recording these webinars, the Commission of Human Medicines (CHM)Expert Working Group on coronavirus (COVID-19) has concluded that there is currently insufficient evidence to establish a link between use of ibuprofen, or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and susceptibility to contracting COVID-19 or the worsening of its symptoms.

Patients can  therefore take paracetamol or ibuprofen when self-medicating for symptoms of COVID-19. The full guidance can be found at the following link
