AES Clinical Corner: Paxlovid


On December 22, 2021, the FDA issued an Emergency Use Authorization for Paxlovid™, a new COVID-19 oral antiviral medication. In addition to a summary of the key information from the FDA and other sources about related drug interactions and important considerations for providers with patients on antiseizure medications, the AES Treatments Committee discussed the issues in this convenient fifteen-minute AES Clinical Corner video.

Panel members include Barry Gidal, PharmD, FAES; Jon Cokley, PharmD; and David Vossler, MD, FAES.
