NSAIDS/ ACE Inhibitors & COVID-19

Update: Per several of the doctors I work with, please remember no lengthy studies are done as there has not been enough time.

Be careful if you are taking NSAIDS and ACE inhibitors and have the COVID-19. Apparently it has an affinity for the same receptor sites as the virus and as such is exacerbating the illness, making patients worse.

Please discuss with your doctor ASAP if you believe you have the COVID-19 and are taking NSAIDS or ACE Inhibitors such as:

  1. Stopped most of my drugs because I feel that lifestyle is the best medicine. Down to what one doctor…
    No problem with the three medicine I still take at half dosage.
