Precaution of Hepcvir 400mg (Sofosbuvir 400mg)

Risk of HBV reactivation :

This fatal case is occurs in the patient who is receiving anti-HCV therapy. Prevent the problem by measuring HBsAg & anti-HBc levels of patients before starting the treatment. Hepatic function test should be monitored frequently and maintain the hepatic enzymes. Initiate the HBV infection management for the patients.

Loss of virological response :

Due to advancement of resistance of Daclatasvir it should be combined with other abnti-viarl agents like sofosbuvir for better activity.

Bradycardia :

Avoid concurrent use of Hepcvir 400mg (Sofosbuvir 400mg) with amiodarone Monitor the ECG Provide alternative medication for reducing the cardiac issues Counsel the patients before initiate the therapy about the risk associated with these combination.

Risk related to ribavirin :
