Hepatitis C is a disease that was considered intractable until 2013. Patients were forced to receive interferon drugs, which constantly stimulate the immune system and provoke poor health throughout the course.
Sofosbuvir-based treatment increased the percentage of people who recovered from 50% to 99%. But manufacturers are constantly releasing new advanced drugs based on sofosbuvir, one of which is Epclusa Generic.
Composition and action
The effectiveness of the drug was increased by supplementing the main component of sofosbuvir (400 mg) with the substance velpatasvir (100 mg).
A drug based on sofosbuvir specifically affects the virus itself, destroying the protein responsible for its reproduction. Unable to spread, the virus dies itself after some time, and the patient is completely cured. Velpatasvir prevents pathogenic cells from entering healthy liver tissue, thereby protecting the organ.
Hepatitis C virus is a common name for a group of 6 main genotypes and 11 that are not too common, which are subdivided into several subtypes. And each type requires a specific therapeutic approach. Therefore, sofosbuvir with 1 genotype showed a result of 99%, and with 3 genotypes only 94-96%.
Epclusa is effective against all six genotypes of the hepatitis C virus. The drug precursor, Harvoni, could be used to combat the 1st, 4th, 5th and 6th genotypes, and patients with the 2nd and 3rd genotypes in 6% of cases did not receive a positive result after the course of treatment. Today we are happy to say that we can offer a price for Epclusa in Moscow that is quite affordable in comparison with other clinics.
Studies on 500,000 subjects showed the following results:
- with hepatitis C without cirrhosis - 99% of recovery;
- with compensated liver cirrhosis - 95-99%;
- with decompensated cirrhosis - 94%.
In this case, antiviral drugs are not additionally required. The exception is hepatitis C against the background of a significant decrease in liver function, then ribavirin is included in the course. Our clinic is conveniently located in the capital, so we offer to buy Epclusa in Moscow from us, although today you can buy medication from anywhere in the country.
Contraindications and side effects
Previously, during antiviral therapy, a person constantly felt like a cold: weakness, headache, chills. Epclusa is well tolerated. Very rarely, patients complain of increased fatigue and headache. It is difficult to differentiate these symptoms from the manifestations of hepatitis C.
Against the background of a 12-week treatment, people are fully functional and lead a familiar lifestyle.
Only 4 categories of patients should use Epcluza with caution:
- patients with bradycardia;
- people with chronic kidney disease.
There are no direct contraindications for prescribing the drug. But the received clinical data is not enough to speak about the complete safety of the medicine for patients from these categories. If signs of intoxication appear (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea), you should consult a doctor.
Dosage and regimen
According to the instructions for Epclusa, 1 capsule is taken every day, which cannot be chewed. It is recommended that you drink the tablet at about the same time. The course lasts 12 weeks. But in patients whose hepatitis C is complicated by cirrhosis (compensated and decompensated), the duration of treatment may double.
Interaction with other drugs
Do not combine the medicine with motherwort extract. Beta blockers should be taken with great care. The treatment with any drugs during the antiviral course should be reported to the doctor in order to avoid unpleasant consequences.
Analogues of Epclusa are: Velpanat (India) and Sophoswell (Bangladesh). They contain the same active substances and in the same quantities. There are a lot of reviews about Epclusa - the drug is very popular, it is worth saying that there are practically no negative ratings.
Epclusa is a way to quickly get rid of hepatitis C of any genotype. The course lasts 3 months (in rare cases - 6 months), with a control blood test after 12 weeks in 94-98% of patients, hepatitis C is no longer detected.
