IBUPROFEN: Specialist advice for people with PH is that you should not be taking ibuprofen regularly anyway (one-off doses may be ok). Please be aware that not everything you read online is true – please obtain your information from reputable sources like the NHS website.

You may have seen stories circulating online about ibuprofen, suggesting it’s dangerous to take it for the symptoms of the coronavirus. Some of these stories are false. You might find this BBC article helpful.
