Clarify the Role of Paxlovid or Molnupiravir for COVID-19
You'll get questions about the new oral antiviral Paxlovid for treating COVID-19...and molnupiravir, once it's approved.
Recommend Paxlovid (nirmatrelvir/ritonavir) first-line for eligible outpatients with mild to moderate COVID-19, since it seems more effective...and molnupiravir when other options aren't available.
Eligibility. Educate that these meds are for patients with a positive COVID-19 test who are at high risk of developing severe illness (age 65 or older, diabetes, etc)...regardless of vaccination status.
