Paxlovid - Overview

Paxlovid is a medication used for the treatment of mild-to-moderate coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in some adults and older children. People who might need a Paxlovid prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Paxlovid medication when appropriate to do so.

What Is Paxlovid?

Paxlovid prescription medication is a medication that has been developed by Pfizer and belongs to a new class of drugs known as 3Cl protease inhibitors. Paxlovid medication is considered an oral antiviral drug. Paxlovid medication consists of two different drugs - nirmatrelvir and ritonavir. This combination of drugs in Paxlovid prescription tablets is thought to work for COVID by preventing SARS-CoV-2 viral replication (nirmatrelvir) and increasing concentrations of nirmatrelvir (ritonavir). In an interim Phase 2/3 analysis in the EPIC-HR trial, Paxlovid medication was observed to reduce the risk of COVID-19 related hospitalization and death by 89% when compared to placebo in patients treated within three days of symptom onset. This Paxlovid study included 1219 adult patients. Some research suggests that Paxlovid medication might be more effective in older patients.

Paxlovid - Dosing and Cost

Similar to the medication molnupiravir (Lagevrio), Paxlovid medication now has Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) - revised in 9/2022 - from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for use in certain groups of patients with COVID-19. Paxlovid medication is generally prescribed to be taken as soon as possible after the diagnosis of COVID-19 and within 5 days of symptom onset. Paxlovid prescription pills are to be taken orally with or without food and the Paxlovid dosage regimen utilized is generally Paxlovid twice per day for five days, depending on the judgment of the prescribing medical provider. At many pharmacies, Paxlovid medication is available with a $0 copay assuming that the patient has a valid Paxlovid prescription from a medical provider. Pfizer has supplied millions of Paxlovid medication doses to the United States and other countries.

Can I Buy Paxlovid Online?

Because Paxlovid is a prescription medication, one cannot simply get Paxlovid OTC ( over the counter) in the United States at a pharmacy. Because of these restrictions, one cannot buy Paxlovid online before consulting and getting a Paxlovid prescription from a medical provider. People who might need a Paxlovid medication prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Paxlovid prescription medication when appropriate to do so.

Paxlovid - Side Effects

Paxlovid prescription medication can cause side effects in some people when used, including muscle aches, diarrhea, and nausea. Some have noted a bad taste in the mouth ("Paxlovid mouth"), sometimes described as a metallic taste, after using Paxlovid tablets. Because Paxlovid medication can cause side effects, it is recommended that patients discuss any concerns about using Paxlovid tablets with a medical provider before use. Alcohol use should be avoided while using Paxlovid tablets. Paxlovid tablets are not authorized by the FDA for use in patients requiring hospitalization due to severe or critical COVID-19, for pre-exposure or post-exposure prophylaxis for prevention of COVID-19, or for use longer than 5 consecutive days. People with a hypersensitivity to Paxlovid medication or ingredients used to make Paxlovid tablets should avoid using Paxlovid prescription medication.

How To Get Paxlovid Near You
