Paxlovid Covid-19 Treatment
Paxlovid is the first FDA-authorized oral treatment for mild-moderate Covid-19 symptoms and is used to prevent hospitalization.
What Is Paxlovid & How Effective Is It?
The Paxlovid Covid-19 treatment is a combination of two antiviral pills: Nirmatrelvir and Ritonavir. They work together to prevent death and hospitalization caused by Covid-19. Clinical trials suggested Paxlovid can lower this risk by up to 89% in people who are likely to develop severe symptoms (older adults, pregnant women, those with certain medical conditions).
This oral treatment helps stop the replication of the Covid-19 virus, therefore reducing viral load and severity of symptoms.
Paxlovid can be prescribed to adults and children 12 years and older and must be started within 5 days from the start of symptoms.
Who is eligible for Paxlovid?
You may be eligible for the Paxlovid Covid-19 treatment if:
- You have a confirmed positive PCR or rapid antigen COVID-19 test
- Your mild-moderate symptoms started less than 5 days ago
- You are considered high risk for severe complications of COVID-19
How Do You Take Paxlovid?
Paxlovid comes as a pre-packaged course of medication. It should be started within 5 days of when you first feel COVID-19 symptoms. For each dose, you will take three pills: two nirmatrelvir tablets and one ritonavir tablet. You should take these 3 pills by mouth every 12 hours for 5 days. You will take a total of 30 pills over the 5 day course of treatment.
