A new study warned that Pfizer’s Paxlovid COVID-19 pill can have harmful interactions with common medications used to treat cardiovascular disease, as what the Gateway Pundit reported in 2021.
Pfizer’s Paxlovid, which contains the drugs nirmatrelvir and ritonavir (NMVr), can interact with several other drugs routinely used to treat cardiovascular disease, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology on Wednesday.
Most of the concerns about drug interactions come from ritonavir, experts said.
“Co-administration of NMVr with medications commonly used to manage cardiovascular conditions can potentially cause significant drug-drug interactions and may lead to severe adverse effects,” according to the reviewed paper.

Daily Mail reported:
Paxlovid can cause serious health problems when coupled with common heart disease medication such as statins and blood thinners.
Researchers from Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, Harvard Medical School and other US institutions found the Covid drug can increase the risk of developing blood clots when taken with blood thinners.
It can also cause an irregular heartbeat when combined with drugs for heart pain and when taken alongside statins it can be toxic to the liver.
Dozens of medications such as aspirin are safe to take with Paxlovid, the researchers stress. But doctors need to be aware that other drugs can be dangerous and should be discontinued or adjusted while a patient is being treated for Covid.
