Current treatments for COVID-19 require a prescription from your healthcare provider. People have been seriously harmed and even died after taking products not approved for use to treat or prevent COVID-19, even products approved or prescribed for other uses. Some forms of treatment are given in the hospital and some in an outpatient setting. Therapeutics include monoclonal antibodies, along with IV and oral antivirals for prevention or treatment of mild to moderate COVID-19. Treatment must be started within the first few days to be effective. Talk to your healthcare provider about what option may be best for you.
