Introduction (Molnatris 200 mg Capsule)
Molnatris 200 mg Capsule contains a drug called Molnupiravir. It is used to treat mild to moderate COVID-19 (Coronovirus disease) in people who are at risk of developing severe illness. It helps to reduce viral load and disease severity by preventing the virus from multiplying. It does not help in the prevention of COVID-19 but it is used in the treatment of coronavirus disease.
Molnupiravir is the first oral, direct-acting antiviral that is highly effective at reducing SARS-CoV-2 infectious virus and viral RNA. It is manufactured in India. It is the US brand name Lagevrio. This medicine is approved by the FDA for the treatment of mild-to-moderate COVID-19. It treats those adults who are at high- risk for severe COVID, including hospitalization and death. It is a small-molecule ribonucleoside prodrug of N- deoxycytidine (NHC), which has activity against SARS-CoV-2 and other RNA viruses and is a high hurdle for protection. People who take molnupiravir should have a contraceptive plan and health systems should ensure an approach to pregnancy testing and contraceptives at the point of care. Molnupiraviris not a substitute for SARS-CoV-2 vaccination in individuals. It is medications that work to introduce errors into the “genetic code” which prevents viruses from reproducing.
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. People who experience mild to moderate symptoms recover without special treatment. However, some will become seriously ill and require medical attention. It is a new virus called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-COV-2). This disease began in China in 2019. Therefore it is known as coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). It mainly spread from person to person among those in close contact (within about 6 feet, or 2 meters). This is spread by respiratory globules released through coughs, sneezes, and breaths. This globule can be inhaled or touch your mouth, nose, or eyes. It stays for several minutes and hours. It can also spread from an infected person with no symptoms. This is called presymptomatic transmission.
Molnupiravir comes as a capsule to take by mouth. It takes two times a day12 hours apart, for 5 days. Molnatris 200 mg Capsule should be taken without a meal at a fixed time every day. Before taking medicine consult your doctor. Dose and duration will be decided by the necessity and need of the patient. It depends on the treatment and may change from time to time.

Benefits of Molnatris 200 mg Capsule
Treatment of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
Molnatris 200 mg Capsule is used to treat mild to moderate COVID-19 caused by a virus known as SARS-CoV-2 in adults. This capsule causes changes in the sequence of the genetic material of the coronavirus by targeting the enzyme called RNA. It shows a substantial reduction in the likelihood of hospitalization and mortality in adults. It works for the treatment of COVID-19 and its possible adverse effects from it. The structure of Molnupiravir stimulates the nucleosides ( or chemical building blocks) to make virus RNA. It works to incorporate itself into the RNA. This drug enters your bloodstream, it blocks the ability of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to reproduce.
Side effects of Molnatris 200 mg
Some of the major and minor side effects of this medicine are. But not all side effects need a doctor’s attention. If you observe any side effects become serious. You may consult your doctor.

How do Molnatris 200 mg work?
This capsule is an antiviral medicine. It works to inhibit the SARS-CoV-2 virus from reproduction. It stops the virus from producing new copies and hence decreases the virus in the body. It prevents its spreading and multiplication. This drug enters the blood streams and blocks the ability of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to replicate. It works to agitate the virus’s reproduction. The molecule of Molnupiravir is absorbed by virus-infected cells. After they are converted into a defective version of building blocks of RNA. When the virus tries to change, the result virus particles have defective genetic material and can no longer reproduce. Molnupiravir targets the RNA that SAR-CoV-2 uses as its building blocks. It should be effective against all coronavirus variants.
