Clinicians often find themselves navigating a gauntlet of choices when recommending over the counter (OTC) medications for an acute viral respiratory illness. Decisions about NSAIDs, acetaminophen and aspirin to manage pain, inflammation and fever may now be more complicated given the COVID-19 pandemic.

Faculty will present appropriate applications of NSAIDs and acetaminophen, based on current literature and evidence-based data.

• Review the safety data on NSAIDs in the context of COVID-19
