Tylenol vs. Advil vs. Motrin: Are they effective and safe to take for COVID-19 symptoms?

Tylenol (acetaminophen), Advil (ibuprofen), and Motrin (ibuprofen) are safe to take for COVID-19 symptoms as long as you follow the recommended dosage and do not have a condition that indicates you should not take these medications. Please consult with your health care provider if you are concerned whether these medications are safe for you to take.
