What is Zepatier?
Zepatier contains the prescription medicines elbasvir and grazoprevir. Elbasvir and grazoprevir are both classed as antiviral medicines. They help to prevent the spread of hepatitis C (HCV) in your body. Zepatier is used for the treatment of specific genotypes of chronic hepatitis C, but only in certain people. It is sometimes given in combination with another drug called ribavirin. Zepatier is sometimes also used in people who have HIV however, it is not a treatment for HIV or AIDS.
If you have ever had hepatitis B previously, using Zepatier can cause this virus to become active again, or become worse. You may need regular liver function tests while using Zepatier and for several months after you take your last dose.
Zepatier active ingredients
Zepatier contains a fixed-dose combination of elbasvir and grazoprevir. Both are direct-acting antiviral agents, that work against the hepatitis C virus. Each of these antivirals has its own distinct mechanism of action, with differing resistance profiles. This enables Zepatier to target the virus at multiple points in its lifecycle. Elbasvir blocks the replication of viral RNA and helps to prevent the formation of the virus. Grazoprevir blocks a specific enzyme in your body that is needed to essentially replicate the virus.
Take Zepatier exactly as prescribed by your doctor, with or without food. Make sure you take the medicine at the same time each day. Your doctor will check your blood to make sure you do not have conditions that could prevent you from taking Zepatier safely. It is important you follow all the directions on your prescription label and read all the medication guides or instruction sheets given to you. Use the medicine exactly as directed. Do not stop using Zepatier suddenly as this could make your hepatitis C harder to treat.
