What is Sovihep V 100 mg/400 mg Tablets ?
Sovihep V manufactured by Zydus Heptiza, is a combination of Sofosbuvir 400 mg and Velpatasvir 100 mg tablets. Remember that Sovihep V that your doctor has prescribed for you were chosen specifically for you and your needs. Do not share this HCV medicine with others for whom it was not prescribed.
When is Sovihep V Tablet prescribed ?
Sofosbuvir and Velpatasvir are antiviral drugs that are used to treat chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections, including all six major HCV genotypes.
How Does Sovihep V (Velpatasvir / Sofosbuvir) Tablet Work ?
Sovihep V is a direct-acting antiviral (DAA) medication. DAAs are a group of medications that directly block the ability of the hepatitis C virus to make copies of itself. These medicines work by weakening the activity of proteins needed by hepatitis C.
One of the two drugs in Sovihep V is Sofosbuvir, which is a nucleotide polymerase inhibitor, and the other is Velpatasvir, which is an NS5A (hepatitis C virus non-structural protein 5A) inhibitor. Sofosbuvir interferes with the reproduction of the genetic material of the hepatitis C virus. Velpatasvir works by interfering with a protein needed by the virus. Together these two medications greatly reduce and then stop the production of new copies of hepatitis C viruses.
