HARVONI gives you what you need

HARVONI transformed Hep C treatment as the first cure that’s one pill, once a day for the majority of patients.

Cure means the Hep C virus is not detected in the blood when measured 3 months after treatment is completed.

HARVONI is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with chronic (lasting a long time) hepatitis C (Hep C) genotype (GT) 1, 4, 5 or 6 infection with or without cirrhosis (compensated). In those with GT 1 and advanced cirrhosis (decompensated) or with GT 1 or 4 with or without cirrhosis (compensated) who have had a liver transplant, HARVONI is used with ribavirin.

No interferon.
No complicated regimens.

For specific patients, such as those who have had a liver transplant or are experiencing advanced cirrhosis,* it is recommended that ribavirin be added to their HARVONI regimen. If you take HARVONI with ribavirin, you should also read the ribavirin Medication Guide for important pregnancy-related information. Your Hep C Specialist will determine the regimen that’s right for you.

Important Safety Information

What is the most important information I should know about HARVONI?

HARVONI can cause serious side effects, including:

  • Hepatitis B virus reactivation: Before starting HARVONI treatment, your healthcare provider will do blood tests to check for hepatitis B infection. If you have ever had hepatitis B, the hepatitis B virus could become active again during and after treatment with HARVONI. This may cause serious liver problems, including liver failure and death. If you are at risk, your healthcare provider will monitor you during and after taking HARVONI.
