Velpanat combines 2 drugs into a single tablet - Sofosbuvir (a nucleotide analog NS5B polymerase inhibitor) and Velpatasvir (an NS5A inhibitor). It is an FDA-approved generic version of Epclusa that is used for treating hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. It’s approved to treat all 6 main genotypes of HCV. Hepatitis C genotypes are different strains, or types, of the virus.
This hepatitis medication is approved for use in people who have tried other HCV medications in the past and were unable to clear the virus. It’s also used for people who are new to HCV treatment. People with or without cirrhosis are able to use Velpanat tablets. Cirrhosis is serious scarring in the liver that prevents it from functioning properly. This medicine is approved for use in people with compensated cirrhosis (a liver disease that typically doesn’t cause symptoms) and decompensated cirrhosis.
Decompensated cirrhosis is when the liver is close to failure and causing serious health issues. People with decompensated cirrhosis will also need to take ribavirin (Rebetol) with Velpanat Velpatasvir Sofosbuvir.
The active ingredients in Velpanat tablets are Sofosbuvir 400 mg and Velpatasvir 100 mg, which act by weakening the activity of proteins needed by hepatitis C. Sofosbuvir blocks the action of an enzyme called ‘NS5B RNA-dependent RNA polymerase’, while Velpatasvir targets a protein called ‘NS5A’. By blocking these proteins, this fixed-dose combination (FDC) drug significantly reduces and stops the production of new copies of the hepatitis C virus. Viruses that can’t reproduce eventually die and are cleared from the body. The goal of treatment is to rid the body of the hepatitis C virus. Clearing the virus from the body will reduce liver inflammation and prevent additional scarring.
Take 1 tablet once a day. It can be taken with or without food. However, taking it with food might help decrease any nausea that could be caused by the medication. Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions and take a tablet every day for 12 weeks. Using a reminder tool can be helpful in making sure you take your medicine each day.
You may start to feel better a few days or weeks after you start taking Velpatasvir/Sofosbuvir, but you still need to take the full 12 weeks of treatment. It’s important to both take the full treatment and avoid missing any doses. These steps help the medication succeed in clearing the HCV from your body. Your doctor will test you before and during treatment, and again 12 weeks after you finish taking this HCV drug. This last test will determine if you are “cured” of hepatitis C.
You’re considered cured of hepatitis C when you have achieved sustained virologic response (SVR), which means the virus is no longer detectable in your blood.
Dosage information for patients with decompensated liver cirrhosis - Like Velpanat, ribavirin comes as a pill, but it’s taken twice a day. Typically, your dose of ribavirin will be based on your weight. It may also be based on your hemoglobin levels and your kidney function.
If you have any questions or concerns about your treatment, talk with your doctor. They can help resolve any issues for you and help you get the most out of your treatment.
