COVID19 Treatment!

Apr 7, 2022 | COVID19


I have been tracking the scientific and clinical literature since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. I have been particularly vigilant for safe and effective treatments for COVID-19 that are used in NON-HOSPITALIZED patients that have a heightened risk of serious problems.

There are two categories based on how these medications are administered: my mouth (oral) or intravenous (IV).  The medicines that are currently approved are not equal in their effectiveness and vary considerably in their cost.  In addition, the IV medications will require a trip (or several) to an infusion center.  The emergence of variants creates an additional problem:  some of these treatments are not effective against the most recent and dominant strain of the COVID-19 virus, which is always changing due to mutations of the virus.  As of today, here are the NIH recommended medications for non-hospitalized, high-risk ADULT patients:


Paxlovid (Ritonavir-boosted nirmatrelvir) (1 dose by mouth twice a day for 5 days)

Remdesivir (1 dose IV daily for 5 days)

Molnupiravir (1 dose my mouth every 12 hours for 5 days)

*Evushield (Tixagevimab plus cilgavimab) (1 dose of each intramuscular one time) – This IM injection is used as “Pre-exposure Prophylaxis” or “PrEP” – i.e. it is administered as a prevention measure before exposure.  Although resistance to this medicine is increasing, it is still recommended for people with underlying health problems.

As I assembled this list, I had to stop and recollect about how helpless my physician colleagues and I felt just one year ago, when we had so few options.
