Is Paxlovid a complete bust? So much for the Biden promise that you could go into a drugstore and walk out with COVID medication

The Boston Globe: A Puzzling Phenomenon: Patients Report A Rebound Of COVID-19 Symptoms After Taking The Antiviral Paxlovid

When it first hit the market in December, the COVID-19 antiviral treatment, Paxlovid, was hailed as a game-changer, an effective medicine that kept at-risk people out of the hospital. But now some patients are reporting on social media an unusual and unnerving phenomenon: their COVID symptoms appear to rebound after taking the medication. And it’s not just their symptoms that reappear. Many report that after finishing their five-day course of treatment, feeling better, and testing negative on an at-home rapid test, they then test positive again a few days later. (Lazar, 4/21)
