Pharmacotherapy for COVID-19 can be classified into antiviral,anti-inflammatory,and anticoagulant therapy. As a result of the understanding of the pathogenesis of COVID-19 and numerous clinical studies,pharmacotherapies have been gradually established. However,as of May 2021,only dexamethasone and tocilizumab have been shown to reduce mortality in large RCTs. Therefore,drugs approved for COVID-19 in Japan are minimal,with only remdesivir,dexamethasone,and baricitinib. In this article,we will review the clinical evidence for each drug and describe the pharmacotherapy according to the severity of the disease.
