Will you prescribe the new hepatitis C drugs?
In just two weeks time GPs will be able to write PBS scripts for four new hepatitis C drugs, which have a cure rate of more than 90% after up to 24 weeks treatment.
The medications that will be listed on the PBS from 1 March are:
- sofosbuvir (Sovaldi),
- sofosbuvir and ledipasvir (Harvoni)
- daclatasvir (Daklinza)
- ribavirin (Ibavyr)
