Mavyret glecaprevir/pibrentasvir (30 Tablets, 100-40 mg)
This medication is a combination of glecaprevir and pibrentasvir and is used to treat chronic (long-lasting) hepatitis C, a viral infection of the liver. Glecaprevir and pibrentasvir work by reducing the amount of hepatitis C virus in your body, which helps your immune system fight the infection and may help your liver recover. Chronic hepatitis C infection can cause serious liver problems such as scarring (cirrhosis) or liver cancer.
It is not known if this treatment can prevent you from passing the virus to others. Do not share needles, and practice “safer sex” (such as the use of latex condoms) to lower the risk of passing the virus to others.
