 4  Hepatitis C They were minimal. Foggy head, occasional nausea and mild itch. Some people experience rash and severe itch. Used along side Interferon and Telaprevir, this drug is part of the cocktail cure for Hepatitis C. I have responded very well using this medication and have cleared the virus. It's pretty well the only treatment, so you have no real say in it. In Canada it comes as copegasys. An injection of Peginterferon-Alpha-2a and a bottle of ribavarin. The interferon injection produces flu-like symptoms for up to, but not always 3 days. M 26 6 months

RIBAVARIN  (RIBAVIRIN):  Ribavirin is used in combination with other antiviral medications (such as interferon, sofosbuvir) to treat chronic (long-lasting) hepatitis C, a viral infection of the liver. Chronic hepatitis C infection can cause serious liver problems such as scarring (cirrhosis), or liver cancer. Ribavirin works by reducing the amount of hepatitis C virus in your body, which may help your liver recover. It is not known if this treatment can prevent you from passing the virus to others. Do not share needles, and practice "safer sex" (including the use of latex condoms) to lower the risk of passing the virus to others.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
