. What to know about Paxlovid, the COVID drug President Biden is using to speed recovery « JO LEE MAGAZINE

NPR – Paxlovid, which combines two different antiviral drugs, has been found to be highly effective at reducing the risks of hospitalization and death for COVID-19 patients with mild or moderate symptoms. It’s linked to a quicker recovery and a return to good health. But in some cases, patients report a “Paxlovid rebound” in which the disease returns. Paxlovid comes in pill form, in contrast to remdesivir, the intravenous antiviral drug that former president Trump was given when he contracted COVID-19 and was cared for at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The standard Paxlovid regimen is to take three pills twice a day, for five days.
