Doctors prescribe Hepcdac 60 mg for the treatment of adults with Hepatitis C, a liver infection caused by the Hepatitis C virus. It is usually used with sofosbuvir with or without ribavirin to treat chronic HCV genotype 1 or 3 infections. The medicine contains the active ingredient daclatasvir, which is a hepatitis C virus inhibitor used to lower the amount of this virus in your body as well as eliminates the virus from your bloodstream over a period. The antiviral medication stops the virus from, multiplying and infecting new cells. You must read the prescription before using this medication. If you have any doubt about your medicines, please speak to your doctor.
Always take Hepcdac 60 mg exactly as your doctor ordered you. Check with your doctor if you are not sure, follow the dosing regimen carefully without skipping doses. Usually, a doctor may prescribe a dose of 60 mg once a day. Patients need not swallow the tablet without breaking or crushing the tablet. Some medicines can interact with your Daclatasvir tablet, affecting its levels in your body. If you are taking any of these medicines that can affect the mechanism of action of this antiviral drug, your doctor may decide to make some essential dose adjustments. It is necessary to change your daily dose to ensure that the antiviral treatment is safe for you. Make sure you follow the treatment regimen for as long as your doctor has told you. The duration of this antiviral treatment depends on the condition of the patient’s liver and whether he/she has previously received treatment for your chronic HCV infection. Your doctor may prescribe it either for 12 or 24 weeks.
Medicines to treat epileptic seizures, tuberculosis, inflammatory diseases, or a herbal preparation called St. John’s wort can lower the effect of your antiviral drug and may make it ineffective. If you are following any these oral treatments, tell your doctor immediately. Note that, the daclatasvir tablet must always be used in combination with other medications to treat hepatitis C infection, be sure to follow the restrictions given by your doctor. Tell your doctor if you are previously infected with the hepatitis B virus, since your doctor may want to monitor your condition more closely. Your doctor should be aware of your liver condition (if your liver is damaged and not functioning correctly).
