What is Epclusa?

    Epclusa contains a combination of sofosbuvir and velpatasvir. Sofosbuvir and velpatasvir are antiviral medications that prevent hepatitis C virus (HCV) from multiplying in your body.

    Epclusa is used to treat chronic hepatitis C in adults. It is sometimes given in combination with another antiviral medicine called ribavirin in people who also have advanced cirrhosis.

    Epclusa treats specific genotypes of hepatitis C, and only in certain people. Use only the medications prescribed for you. Do not share your medicine with other people.

    Epclusa is sometimes used in people who also have HIV. This medicine is not a treatment for HIV or AIDS.

    Important Information
    If you have ever had hepatitis B, Epclusa can cause this condition to come back or get worse. You will need frequent blood tests to check your liver function.

    Read the medication guide or patient instructions provided with each medication in your combination therapy. Do not change your doses or medication schedule without your doctor's advice.

    Epclusa is sometimes used in combination with ribavirin. Ribavirin can cause birth defects or death in an unborn baby. Do not use ribavirin if you are pregnant, or if you are a man and your sexual partner is pregnant. Use effective birth control to prevent pregnancy while using these medicines together and for at least 6 months after treatment ends.
