Hepcinat (Sofosbuvir) film coated tablets each contain 400mg of the main ingredient. The dosage schedule must be individualized by the physician in charge of treatment, and will vary according to the viral genotype that is being treated. Adult patients will usually be directed by their physician to take 1 tablet per day, and it can be administered alongside a meal or else without food.
Those suffering from GT1 or GT4 (genotype 1 or 4) may be ordered by the physician to take it alongside ribavirin and peginterferon alfa, with treatment lasting for a period of 12 weeks. In contrast to this, GT2 (genotype 2) is usually treated for 12 weeks, and it is taken alongside ribavirin. GT3 (genotype 3) requires 24 weeks of treatment in combination with ribavirin. Patients must only take it according to the instructions provided to them by the physician in charge of treatment.
