What is Paxlovid?

Paxlovid has been authorized for emergency use by FDA under an EUA, for the treatment of mild-to-moderate COVID-19 in adults and pediatric patients (12 years of age and older weighing at least 88 lbs) with positive results of direct SARS CoV-2 viral testing, and who are at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19, including hospitalization or death.

If Paxlovid is right for you, treatment should start as soon as possible after COVID-19 diagnosis and your first symptom in the last 5 days. Paxlovid is not for people who have a history of allergy to nirmatrelvir or ritonavir or other components of these drugs, and it is not for people taking certain other drugs. Paxlovid may cause side effects, some of which may be serious and unexpected. Learn more about Paxlovid on the manufacturer’s website, and review the patient and healthcare provider fact sheets for more information.

The emergency use of Paxlovid is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of the emergency use of drugs and biological products during the COVID19 pandemic under Section 564(b)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb3(b)(1), unless the declaration is terminated or authorization revoked sooner.

Symptoms

COVID-19 is a respiratory disease, caused by a novel (or new) coronavirus that emerged in late 2019. Reported illness ranges from mild symptoms to severe illness and death for confirmed COVID-19 cases. 

Symptoms of infection may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus and may include:

  • Fever or chills

  • Cough

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle or body aches

  • Headache

  • New loss of sense of taste or smell

  • Sore throat

  • Congestion or runny nose

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • In elderly, chronically ill, or debilitated individuals such as residents of a long-term care facility, symptoms of COVID-19 may be subtle such as alterations in mental status or in blood glucose control

  • However, it’s possible for people with COVID-​19 to spread the virus to others up to 48 hours before they have symptoms. Visit the CDC's resource on symptoms for more information.

 

If you develop symptoms of COVID-19, even if they are mild, please contact your healthcare provider and a test site near you to schedule a test.
