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)
