Currently there are no over the counter medicines specifically indicated or approved for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19. Where appropriate, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) do advise appropriate use of over-the-counter medicines to alleviate mild symptoms of COVID-19. These may include cough, fever, headache, runny nose, congestion and sore throat pain.
While Advil products are indicated for relief of the aforementioned symptoms, Advil products are not specifically indicated for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19. COVID-19 is caused by a specific coronavirus, belonging to a group of viruses which can also result in less serious cold and flu-like illnesses. Because of this, some of the milder symptoms may be common to both COVID-19 and cold or flu and may be similarly relieved by over-the-counter cold and flu remedies such as Advil. The Advil family of products contain several active ingredients which are commonly used to treat symptoms of respiratory viral infections.
Advil products should always be used only as directed. If you have questions or concerns about your symptoms or COVID-19, please discuss with your healthcare professional.
