On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition, Katrina Sanders talks to us about the prescription of Paxlovid and some associated side effects such as dysgeusia.
“It’s an oral antiviral pill that can be taken at home to help keep high-risk patients from getting sick and needing to be hospitalized.”
“This additive product is called Ritonavir, and this is an added medicament that is applied to a lot of different antiretroviral drugs.”
“Be sure if you have a patient who has taken paxlovid that you are inquiring about if they’re still experiencing Dysgeusia, and if so, how it is that they’re managing it.”
