Several of the medications being used to treat COVID-19, whether FDA-approved or not, can have significant drug interactions with other medications the patient may be on. It is difficult, if not impossible, to remember and keep track of all these possible drug interactions.
Fortunately, there is a fantastic resource for looking up drug interactions between any of the COVID-19 treatments and other medications:
The website also has links to other resources, including app versions of the interaction checker.
Clicking on “Interaction Checker” brings us to the search box. In the first column, we choose the medication for the treatment of COVID-19. In the second column, we choose the other medication(s). The potential drug interaction is shown in the third column.
Here is an example of a search I did—between Paxlovid™ and clozapine.
If we click on the result—the words “Do Not Coadminister” in the red-colored box, an explanation of the drug interaction pops up (see the image below).
