Sofocure V is a brand name medication that contains a combination of Sofosbuvir and Velpatasvir. It is used to treat chronic hepatitis C infection in adults. Sofosbuvir and Velpatasvir work together to prevent the virus from multiplying and spreading in the body.
Sofocure V tablets contain Sofosbuvir 400mg and Velpatasvir 100mg as the active ingredients.
Sofocure V is used to treat chronic hepatitis C infection in adults. It is prescribed for people who have not been treated in the past or who have not responded to other treatments for hepatitis C.
How to use:
Sofocure V should be taken exactly as prescribed by a healthcare professional. The tablets should be swallowed whole with water and can be taken with or without food.
