Harvoni: New Once-Daily Combination for Hepatitis C

The GoodRx Pharmacist - October 20, 2014

The FDA recently approved Harvoni (ledipasvir/sofosbuvir), a new combination oral medication for the treatment of hepatitis C that stops the replication of the virus.

What is Harvoni?
Harvoni 90 mg/400 mg tablets are a once-daily treatment that can be used without injectable pegylated interferon alpha (Pegintron, Pegasys) or oral ribavirin (Copegus, Ribasphere, Rebetol).

Why is Harvoni different from other hepatitis C treatments?
Harvoni is unique because it is the first combination pill approved to treat chronic hepatitis C genotype 1 infection and it DOES NOT require combination treatment with pegylated interferon or ribavirin—medications that use to be first line therapy, but have serious side effects. See More

What Is the Best Treatment for Hepatitis C?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 23, 2014

The Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) can cause both acute and chronic hepatitis. Of the Americans with hepatitis C, 70 – 90 percent have genotype 1 hep C. Chronic HCV infection often follows a progressive course over many years and can ultimately result in cirrhosis, liver (hepatocellular) cancer, and the need for liver transplantation.

Chronic hepatitis C is treatable. Yes, treatable. The goal of treatment is to eradicate the hepatitis C virus RNA, and if you have undetectable HCV RNA 6 months after treatment then we say you have achieved a sustained virologic response (SVR). See More
