Description

How It Works

Molnupiravir, the active ingredient in Lagevrio, is a prodrug of the synthetic nucleoside derivative N4-hydroxycytidine. Once ingested, it is metabolized into its active form, which mimics the natural nucleosides that are incorporated into the viral RNA during replication. However, molnupiravir introduces errors into the viral RNA, leading to a high mutation rate that disrupts viral replication and reduces the viral load in the body.

By introducing errors into the viral RNA, it effectively reduces viral replication and helps control the infection. However, patients should be aware of the potential side effects and contraindications. The cost of Lagevrio varies significantly across different countries, reflecting the global disparities in access to COVID-19 treatments. Patients should consult with their healthcare providers to determine if Lagevrio is the right treatment option for their condition and explore possible financial assistance options if needed.
