MyHep (Sofosbuvir) is a prescription medication used in the treatment of chronic hepatitis C. It contains the active ingredient Sofosbuvir.
MyHep is used in combination with other antiviral medications to treat chronic hepatitis C, a viral infection that affects the liver. It works by blocking the replication of the hepatitis C virus in the body, which helps to reduce the amount of virus in the blood.
HOW TO USE:
MyHep tablets should be taken orally, with or without food, as directed by the doctor. Patients should never exceed the recommended dosage. The dosage and duration of treatment will be determined by the doctor based on the patient’s medical history and response to treatment.
MyHep tablets should be stored at room temperature, between 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F). Keep it away from direct sunlight, heat, and moisture. Ensure that the medication is kept out of reach of children and pets.
Mechanism of action:
MyHep contains Sofosbuvir, which is an antiviral medication that works by inhibiting the activity of an enzyme called NS5B polymerase. This enzyme is necessary for the replication of the hepatitis C virus in the body. By inhibiting this enzyme, MyHep prevents the virus from multiplying and reduces the amount of virus in the blood.
