Currently, the FDA has granted emergency use authorization for two oral therapies for treatment of COVID-19: nirmatrelvir/ritonavir (Paxlovid®, from Pfizer) and molnupiravir (Lagevrio®, from Merck).

Both of these medications require a prescription from a licensed practitioner. Paxlovid is the best current therapy for high-risk outpatients with mild-moderate COVID-19, even better than the monoclonal antibody bebtelovimab.
