Sofocure L is a brand name of a medication used in the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. It is a combination of two active ingredients; Sofosbuvir (400 mg) and Ledipasvir (90 mg) and is manufactured by Emcure Pharmaceuticals Ltd. Each pack of Sofocure L contains 28 tablets.
Sofocure L contains two active ingredients, Sofosbuvir and Ledipasvir. Sofosbuvir is an antiviral medication that works by blocking the replication of the HCV virus, while Ledipasvir is another antiviral medication that also targets the HCV virus.
Sofocure L is used in the treatment of chronic HCV infection in combination with other medications. It is used to achieve sustained virologic response (SVR), which means that the HCV virus is no longer detected in the blood after treatment.
Usage and Dosage:
Sofocure L is taken orally once a day with or without food. The recommended duration of treatment is 12 weeks for most patients. The dosage and duration of treatment may vary based on the patient’s condition and medical history.
Sofocure L should be stored at room temperature, away from direct sunlight, heat, and moisture. The medication should be kept in its original packaging and should be stored out of reach of children.
Mechanism of Action:
Sofocure L works by targeting the HCV virus and preventing it from replicating in the body. Sofosbuvir blocks the action of an enzyme called RNA polymerase, which is required for the HCV virus to replicate, while Ledipasvir blocks the action of a protein called NS5A, which is involved in the virus’s replication.
Sofocure L is contraindicated in patients who are allergic to any of the components of the medication. It should not be used in patients with severe liver or kidney disease or in pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Sofocure L may interact with other medications, including certain antibiotics and antiviral medications. Patients should inform their healthcare provider of all medications they are taking before starting Sofocure L.
