What are the treatments for HepC
Response from Dr. McGovern
The main treatment for hepatitis C is pegylated interferon and ribavirin. Pegylated interferon is an injection that you take weekly; ribavirin comes in a pill that you take twice daily. The number of pills depends on your weight.
New therapies are being investigated for HCV and hopefully will be available in the next few years.
