Be Vigilant When Screening for Drug Interactions With Hep C Meds
As more patients take hepatitis C antivirals (Epclusa, Maviret, etc), you'll have to contend with many potential drug interactions.
Interactions can lead to toxicity...or treatment failure. And this can be an expensive mistake...since antivirals cost up to $70,000/course.
Plus hep C meds may fly under the radar if they're not filled at your pharmacy. Ask patients about ALL meds...Rxs, OTCs, supplements, etc.
