What is Paxlovid?
Paxlovid is a SARS-COVID medication manufactured by Pfizer Pharmaceutical company. Its combination medicine (Nirmatrelvir and Ritonavir) is an oral anti-viral medication for treating SARS-COV-02 infection, especially for mild to severe cases. The combination works by attacking the virus and inhibiting the replication of the virus.
Uses of Paxlovid
Paxlovid treats virus infections, including COVID-19 (coronavirus), and reduces severe illness along with Covid. This medication is only prescribed for limited use at the start of the infection for four to five days under the supervision of a healthcare provider.
How does it works?
Nirmatrelvir is a protease inhibitor that blocks a necessary enzyme needed by the COVID-19 virus. Ritonavir helps boost the levels of Nirmatrelvir in the body. It stops Nirmatrelvir from metabolizing in the liver; thus, it helps maintain the Nirmatrelvir levels by preventing rapid excretion.

It should be taken via mouth with water without crushing or chewing it to avoid its oral absorption and loss of active ingredient.
