Is Tylenol safe to take? Coronavirus?

I don’t know if I have coronavirus but I just want to avoid any medication that wouldn’t be good for it just to be safe. Is Tylenol safe?

    It's safe in recommend does (there are instruction on the side of the bottle), but it probably won't help you, even for pain,

    Yes, Tylenol is safe to take. 

    If you heard about the ibuprofen news about how ibuprofen makes you more susceptible to COVID-19, you don't have to worry about taking Tylenol. This ibuprofen news is only up to speculation, and Tylenol is acetaminophen.

    Yes, tylenol is safe.

    The warning about ibuprofen is part of a more general anti-ibuprofen campaign in France. Ibuprofen has a side effect that might theoretically make it easier for the virus to get into your cells, but this is as yet entirely speculative. Tylenol does not have that side effect.

    Both tylenol and ibuprofen can damage your organs if you take too much. Be sure to stick to the recommended dosages and make sure that your cough medicine doesn't contain more of the same drugs.

    Tylenol has vitamin K and that will give you some relief. If you are experiencing symptoms take a cough drop and place it under your lip beneath the affected sinus. Usually it will be the right sinus. Allow of it to slowly dissolve and avoid falling asleep with it still in your mouth (choking hazard). This will strengthen your liver so that it will eliminate the active metabolite. It will also abate the process of the mucous production that make the condition contagious. You should be well within minutes of this treatment. For young children unable to place it under their lip, dissolve the cough drop with a teaspoon of water and place it in the microwave to help it dissolve. Take about 1/4 teaspoon of flour and make a batter. Place it in the microwave for about a minute. And, while it is a little warm scrap off a strip and place it under the child's upper lip. If the child eats it then tell them not to if they can understand and make it a little game to see if they can hold it. It may take a couple of sessions before you notice the absence of mucous. The child should be well by the next morning. At the sign of the runny nose repeat this treatment.

    yes. It will reduce any fever and help with pain. Do not overdose.

    Yes, it's safe to take. Paracetamol (Tylenol) has no negative effects in a viral infection. It is used mainly to reduce fever and mild to moderate pain relief.
