Sovihep Sofosbuvir How It Works And What It Treats

Chronic hepatitis is a serious condition which occurs after infection of the liver by the hepatitis C virus. SoviHep is a breakthrough treatment indicated for chronic hepatitis C or CHC infections in adults. Its drug name is Sofosbuvir and its international brand name is Sovaldi. SoviHep has been manufactured by Zydus Heptiza since 2003 and is available in bottles of 28 film-coated tablets which contain 400g of the main ingredient Sofosbuvir.

What Is SoviHep

SoviHep is a nucleotide analog inhibitor anti-viral medication used together with other drugs for the treatment of hepatitis C infection. Sofosbuvir’s mechanism of action inhibits the ability of the hepatitis C virus to replicate its RNA through the use of an RNA polymerase enzyme. This enzyme is necessary for the virus to multiply.

The FDA approved the use of sofosbuvir together with ribavirin (RBC) in 2013. It is used for oral dual therapy in the treatment of HCV genotypes 2 and 3. It is also used in triple therapy in combination with RBV and injected pegylatedinterferon in the treatment of HCV genotypes 1 and 4. Sofosbuvir treatments provide fewer side-effects, a higher cure rate and two to four times less duration of therapy compared to previous treatments of hepatitis C infection. For most patients sofosbuvir helps with liver recovery after hepatitis C infection as well as strengthening the immune system, which aids the speed of healing.

How Does SoviHep Work

As soon as the hepatitis C virus reaches the liver cells, it begins to multiply by replicating its DNA and RNA. Sofosbuvir is a nucleotide polymerase inhibitor that goes to work directly on the hepatitis C virus. It is a pro-drug with a biotechnology strategy called ProTide which acts as a viral RNA synthesis inhibitor, effectively inhibiting the replication of the DNA and RNA of the hepatitis C virus.

How To Use SoviHep

A dosage schedule will be individualized by your physician which will vary according to your viral genotype. The usual dosage for adults is 2 tablet of 400mg strength per day administered with or without food and taken at the same time each day. Regular visits to the physician in charge of your treatment are essential in order to carry out routine blood tests. The frequency of these blood tests will depend on your genotype and will be determined by your individual progress.

Treatment usually lasts for a period of up to 24 weeks; however the dosage and duration of treatment may vary over the course of treatment depending on whether any difficulties are experienced and how well you respond to the treatment.

Side Effects Of Sofosbuvir

Two of the most common side effects experienced by patients are insomnia and nausea. These symptoms can be reduced by taking the medication with food or earlier in the day.
Diarrhea may occur and precautions should be taken to prevent dehydration.

As sofosbuvir may decrease red blood cell count it is important to undergo regular blood testing to ensure that you remain within normal limits.
Sofosbuvir may have a negative effect on the liver and it is therefore important to have liver function tests performed regularly. If you have liver problems you should discuss this with your physician.

Sofosbuvir is safe if taken as prescribed and under the supervision of a physician. If there are any changes in heart rate or breathing, immediate medical attention should be sought. Advise your physician of any medications, including OTC and herbal remedies that you are taking before commencing treatment with SoviHep.
