Hepatitis Medications

Hepatitis is viral liver inflammation. There are different strains of hepatitis, but the most common ones are hepatitis C and B. Both can cause chronic or long-term infection that can severely injure the liver. The major distinction between hepatitis B and hepatitis C is that hepatitis B may be contracted through a person’s body fluids, and hepatitis C is passed on through blood.

Hepatitis C Medications

Hepatitis C is a blood-borne virus transmitted through contact with infected blood or bodily fluids. It is a serious health concern because it can lead to chronic liver disease, including cirrhosis and liver cancer.

Direct-acting antiviral (DAA) pills are the most effective and safest drug to treat Hepatitis C. They can eradicate the illness in over 90% of patients. Usually, DDA pills must be taken for 8 to 12 weeks.

There is no vaccine for hepatitis C, and there is no cure for the virus. Treatment for hepatitis C only focuses on managing the symptoms and preventing further damage to the liver.

Hepatitis B Medications

Hepatitis B is also caused by a virus, just like hepatitis C. Exposure to this virus can result in an acute infection within the first six months and can cause short-term flu-like symptoms. Some people may be able to eliminate the virus from their systems after some time, while others can develop chronic hepatitis B.

Unlike hepatitis C, a vaccine is available for hepatitis B. A shot of hepatitis B immune globulin contains proteins that can boost your immune system and provide you protection against the virus.

Hepatitis medication also includes taking prescription medicines like:

  • Adefovir (Hepsera)
  • Entecavir (Baraclude)
  • Interferon alfa (Intron A, Roferon A, Sylatron)
  • Lamivudine (3tc, Epivir A/F, Epivir HBV, Heptovir)
  • Pegylated Interferon (Pegasys)
  • Telbivudine (Tyzeka)
  • Tenofovir alafenamide (Vemlidy)
  • Tenofovir disoproxil fumerate (Viread)
