    Ibuprofen is allegedly causing a weird body chemistry reaction with the virus, and people are warning to avoid at all costs.

    Hmmm, I knew I was making a smart choice when I bought 2 500 packs of Tylenol at Costco a few weeks ago.
    Life has a melody.

    Some of my “blue pills” are placebos by now.
    Many medications don't degrade by much, but there are no guarantees beyond the expiration.

    You can probably get 15 bucks for it online. Spray it dayglo orange,
    and print "poormans tannerite" on it.
    Shipping on their dime of course.

    Right!

    My point was that sheeple needlessly throw them away. Expired drugs won’t hurt you, they just become less effective over time.

    As I mentioned in another thread, aspirin and tetracycline become toxic at a certain point after expiry. Read up on these two before using either beyond their expiration date.
    Take away the soap box, take away the ballot box and all that's left is the cartridge box.

    Tetracycline is from the stone age. It's addressed in the article, noting a particular formulation of tetracycline that was an issue. I don't think there was ever an issue with doxy or mino, and nobody cares about sarecycline.

    I don't think they really hashed out aspirin degradation in the article but in the comment section older doctors and nurses write about smelling aspirin before use in the old days. If it smells like salicylic acid (wintergreen) toss it.

    LONDON -- The World Health Organization and other leading agencies say there is no evidence to support the suggestion that ibuprofen might worsen the symptoms of COVID-19.

    WHO said earlier this week that it did a quick review and found no published research or data on the issue. It also checked with doctors treating coronavirus patients.

    The U.N. health agency said it was "not aware of reports of any negative effects of ibuprofen, beyond the usual known side effects.” It added that it was not recommending against using ibuprofen for the treatment of fever in people with COVID-19.

    I read where enemas are being used to treat CNN/China virus. No need to waste toilet paper either.

    ​Masks are being used to promote fear in order to demonstrate control.
