What is Veklury?

Veklury is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Gilead Sciences, Inc. Veklury is a SARS-CoV-2 nucleotide analog RNA polymerase inhibitor with FDA approval to be used in adults and pediatric patients 12 years of age and older to treat coronavirus disease 2019 requiring hospitalization.

Veklury has also been granted Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the treatment of non-hospitalized adults and non-hospitalized patients younger than 12 years of age who are at high risk of disease progression to severe COVID-19, including hospitalization or death. In doing so, Veklury may be administered in qualified outpatient settings.

Veklury is available as a lyophilized powder, in a single-dose vial for injection, in the following doses: 100 mg/20 mL (5 mg/mL).

Carry out renal and hepatic tests and assess prothrombin time during and before initiating treatment. The recommended dose in adults and pediatric patients 12 years of age and older, weighing at least 40 kg is a single loading dose of 200 mg on Day 1, then once-daily doses of 100 mg from Day 2.

The total treatment duration is 5 days for patients not requiring invasive mechanical ventilation and/or ECMO. Treatment may be extended for another 5 days in patients that do not show improvement. For patients requiring invasive mechanical ventilation and/or ECMO, the recommended total treatment duration is 10 days. High-risk non-hospitalized patients may receive Veklury via intravenous infusion for a total of 3 days for the treatment of mild-to-moderate COVID-19 disease.

Please read the full prescribing information, and the labeling provided, and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
