Your healthcare professional may also tell you about specific symptoms to watch out for that may indicate that you need to stop or decrease the dose of some of your other medicines.

Tell your healthcare professional if you are taking combined hormonal contraceptive (birth control). PAXLOVID may affect how your birth control works. People who can become pregnant should use another or an alternative effective form of birth control.

PAXLOVID may cause serious side effects, including:

  • Allergic reactions, including severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis). Do not take PAXLOVID if you are allergic to nirmatrelvir, ritonavir, or any of the ingredients in PAXLOVID. Stop taking PAXLOVID and call your healthcare professional right away if you get any of the following symptoms of an allergic reaction:

    • skin rash, hives, blisters, or peeling skin
    • painful sores or ulcers in the mouth, nose, throat, or genital area
    • trouble swallowing or breathing
    • swelling of the mouth, lips, tongue, or face

have sexual activity while taking PAXLOVID. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, discuss
your options and specific situation with your healthcare professional.



Take PAXLOVID exactly as your healthcare professional tells you. If you take too much PAXLOVID, call your healthcare professional or go to the nearest hospital emergency room right away. If you are taking a ritonavir- or cobicistat-containing medicine to treat hepatitis C or HIV-1 infection, you should continue to take your medicine as prescribed.



Talk to your healthcare professional if you do not feel better or if you feel worse after 5 days.
