Sofosbuvir and Hepatitis
Sofosbuvir (Sovaldi™) is a medication available by prescription only and approved to treat chronic hepatitis C. It is approved for use in adults, and is meant to be used in combination with one or two other hepatitis C medications.
To treat hepatitis C, sofosbuvir interferes with the way the virus replicates. Using sofosbuvir in combination with other hepatitis C medications can help to clear the virus from the body, helping to reduce liver swelling, stop the scarring, and possibly reverse some of the liver damage.
