it's not like any medication is good

[color=indigo]1-It’s not like any medication is good for you.

Can’t this sentence have two meanings:
[color=blue]a-There is no medication that is good for you.
[color=red]b-Not all medications are good for you.

I think for meaning “b” one should have “just any medication”.

All your observations are correct.

Thanks a lot Beeesnees,

I am sorry but I don’t quite get it. Can sentence “1” have both meanings or not?

yes

Hi Navi,

I have to admit that I am confused about the meaning of your sentence:

To start with I would be happier with: -It’s not as if any medication is good for you.

And this is what you have suggested in (a) but in what you have suggested in (b) there is a suggestion that possibly there is some medication that is good for you.

In conclusion I would suggest that the only meaning of the quoted sentence is: It is true to say that there is no medication that is good for you.

Hi Navi,

I agree that in Alan’s sentence, only (a) is correct, but Alan changed your original sentence.
I still see no problem with the observations you made about the original sentence:
It’s not like any medication is good for you: it’s not as if any medication (at all) is good for you - because you have an ailment that no medication will cure.
It’s not like any medication is good for you: it’s not as if (just) any medication is good for you - but some medication is.
