How to take Remdesivir?

Remdesivir is available in solution (liquid) and powder to be mixed with the liquid and infused into the vein by a doctor or nurse. It is given once a day for 5 to 10 days. The treatment length depends on how long your body takes to respond to the medications.
The drug helps in preventing the production of an enzyme that is necessary for the virus to replicate itself. Once this is done, the virus will no longer be able to spread within the body.
Some research has shown that patients with moderate COVID-19 receive Remdesivir, and they have improved very quickly. The drug has also helped in shortening the stay of patients in the hospital.


Missed Dose:

The skipped dose causes no problem. Missing one or two-dose of Remdesivir won't affect your body. However, if you miss a dose in some medications, some sudden chemical changes may affect your body. Your doctor would advise you to take the prescribed medicine as soon as possible if you have missed the dose.


Overdose:

Overdose of a drug can be accidental. If you have taken more than the prescribed Remdesivir tablets, there is a chance of harmful effects on your body's functions. Overdose of a medicine can lead to a medical emergency.
