The essence of the medication
Daclatasvir refers to antiviral type of drug, which specializes in the treatment and prevention of hepatitis of the C class. Because of this drug, the virus can’t penetrate as well as can’t multiply inside patient’s body.
The main aim is to use the drug for Hepatitis C in 360-degrees treatment for adult patients. An important prerequisite for drug administration is any other liver problems, particularly liver cirrhosis. It can be combined with a comprehensive medication named Sofosbuvir.
Tablets can cause various side effects, most of which are studied in detail, and can be used not only for the treatment of hepatitis.
Other powerful drugs should be used with caution. Be sure to tell your doctor about all medications you are taking, or have recently stopped taking in order to avoid side effects.
Among the main contraindication is allergy to the constituent elements of the drug. To eliminate possible other contraindications, consult your doctor.
